BAHIA BUSTAMANTE: Coexist with penguins
Bahía Bustamante is a nearly untouched paradise in remotest Patagonia. Spectacular white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and impressive cliffs make up the coastline, whilst inland, the moonlike landscapes and the vast Patagonian Steppe form the backdrop of this picture-perfect village. Ride through the woods or trot along the Atlantic coast on horseback by day and then stay at a typical Patagonian estancia by night. This is the ideal base to explore Argentina’s secret world of marine fauna.
EL CALAFATE: Surrounded by glaciers
In recent years, El Calafate has grown into a more developed town, frequented by locals and foreign visitors alike. With the guidance of a trained guide, explore the renowned Perito Moreno Glacier and other surrounding massifs closeby. Marvel as the broken glacier ice flows right past you!
LOS GLACIARES NATIONAL PARK: Welcome to gaucho land!
Los Glaciares National Park is probably southern Argentina’s most famous national park. In 1981, it became a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site, and it is no surprise that internationally the park is considered a Natural Wonder of the World.
