More Than Met Our Expectations: Wine, Chocolate and Football in Patagonia

More Than Met Our Expectations: Wine, Chocolate and Football in Patagonia

Guest review from Anne, part of a group of six friends who did a custom trip through Patagonia, ending with a heartwarming story about watching the super bowl in Torres del Paine!

“Wildland Adventures' planning was excellent. We gave you the dates and what we wanted to do in Patagonia and you more than met our expectations.

The trip was fabulous.

We had great guides throughout the trip. Ana in BA was quite knowledgeable and we were there at a difficult time when the prosecutor died under mysterious circumstances. Gabrielle who met us in Bariloche and then was our hiking guide, brew pub guide and then our lake crossing guide was extremely knowledgeable and more than that fun to be with. Finally our two guides at AWASI, Maca and Claudio, were top notch.

Airline and ground transportation arrangements were excellent. All of our transfers and land drivers were on time and quite friendly.

Accommodations were excellent and the staff of all the hotels were friendly, even to someone who cannot communicate in Spanish.

AWASI Patagonia was amazing but even better than the lodge was the staff. We arrived on Friday, January 30, and the Super Bowl was in two days. When asked about watching it, the manager, Betiana, said AWASI had only one TV in the staff lounge. She said we could use it but was reluctant because the room was not up to the standards of the guest rooms. On Sunday she said she had a plan. She purchased a subscription to NFL.COM for the one game. She streamed it through her phone to a laptop. Then she decided that the screen was too small because there were other guests beside the six of us who were interested. So she had the game projected onto a sheet hung over a fireplace in the lobby and we had a great time watching the game, not with pizza and beer but wine and dessert.”

Keeping it wild,

Gretchen Traut
