Patagonia travel

wild landscape & natural spectacles

Patagonia, which stretches across southern Argentina and Chile, offers some of the most dramatic landscapes in the world with spectacular mountain peaks, expansive glaciers, and turquoise lakes. Spend your time at an estancia in southern Argentina, discovering your inner gaucho, and exploring on horseback. Experience the dramatic sights of the Perito Moreno Glacier, hike and trek through the mountains of El Chalten and cross the border into Chile, where you will be amazed by the Torres del Paine - the most majestic mountain in Patagonia. Conquer the impressive nature of Tierra del Fuego from aboard a luxury expedition ship. Sit back and enjoy the view from your hotub in your luxurious cottage or your private terrace on Lago del Desierto.

For many travelers, Patagonia is the main reason to visit South America.

It is an adventure playground in every way, offering excellent hiking, trekking, horse riding and unique terrain to explore. Photographers will quickly know their memory cards in full. There are endless possibilities here to capture a beautiful scene.

WOW MOMENTS PATAGONIA

PUMA TRACKING

Follow in the footsteps of the now rare pumas. Help the conservation team check the hidden cameras and observe and monitor the wildlife. Collect data to research and understand the behavioral patterns of these shy animals. Visit a private reserve that has been expanded from 600 to 4,500 hectares and converted an estancia for sheep into a private sanctuary for pumas. It serves to protect the puma population in and around the Torres del Paine National Park.

PICNIC IN PICKUP

Discover pristine landscapes, the sight of Patagonia's rugged peaks, pristine rivers and misty backwater oases. In its enormous extent, Patagonia offers a wealth of possible experiences and landscapes. Take an exciting off-road trip over hill and dale in this varied region. After all the action, enjoy a picnic specially prepared for you on the loading area of your pickup truck, with a view of the countryside and the sun on your face.

ADVENTURE BATHTUB

Adventure Bathtub with a view - in the morning you conquer mountains, kayak past glaciers, at night you look for pumas - and what do you do in the afternoon? Bathing with a wonderful view and a glass of your favorite wine in your hand. The only thing missing is the favorite person in the other.

Ideally with a dreamlike boutique boat as a base, or for real adventurers, on board an expedition ship or on an ice trek. Some of the most beautiful haciendas in Patagonia are located in the glacier area and the landscapes that are not covered by ice are spectacular and wait to be explored on foot, MTB or horse. The most spectacular lodges can only be reached on foot or by boat.

Rolling hills with hundreds of lakes and lagoons make the region impressive and perfect for hiking, trekking, sailing, fishing, horse riding, cycling and kayaking. Puerto Montt, in the southern Lake District, is the starting point for some of the most amazing cruises that traverse the fjords and hanging valleys of the Chilean glacial coast. The region is home to the indigenous Mapuche, Chile's largest indigenous group. You will have the opportunity to sleep in rukas (traditional Mapuche houses), taste their cuisine and experience their culture and hospitality up close.

TRAVEL INSPIRATIONS

CASUAL LODGES & LUXURIOUS ACCOMMODATION

TRAVEL TIME / WEATHER / CLIMATE

In general, the best time to visit Patagonia is from October to March. Although the weather in Patagonia is very changeable, the chance of "higher" temperatures is highest during this time.

VACCINE PROTECTION

Proof of a valid yellow fever vaccination is not currently required by the authorities when entering from a yellow fever area (often neighboring countries) or when entering Germany directly.
In addition, however, it is advisable to check the vaccination certificate and, if necessary, to refresh the standard vaccinations.

LANGUAGE

The official language is Spanish. Without knowledge of Spanish, freedom of movement in Patagonia is partially restricted. Basic knowledge of Spanish is very helpful, although many residents in the touristy areas can speak English. In Chilean Patagonia, the Spanish language is sometimes very modified and contains many special phrases and uses words of the Chilean natives.

TO EAT AND DRINK

Argentine Patagonia:
Argentinians love good food and are best known for good red wine and excellent beef.
Chilean Patagonia:
Typical examples of local cuisine are empanadas (pies with meat, poultry or fish and onions, eggs, raisins and olives), humitas (spiced corn paste rolled in corn leaves and cooked), cazuela de ave (soup with rice, vegetables, chicken and various herbs ), Bife a lo Pobre (steak with french fries, fried onions and fried egg) and Parrillada (a selection of meat grilled on the charcoal grill). Seafood is also excellent.

PEOPLE

The Chileans and Argentines are down-to-earth nations. Their families, their home and their work are most important to them. Although a little more reserved than other South Americans, you can expect hospitality and helpfulness, so that you will certainly feel at home.

VISA

Argentine Patagonia:
German citizens can enter Argentina as tourists for up to 90 days without a visa. A passport that is valid for at least 3 months is required to enter the country.
Chilean Patagonia:
A visa is not required for a short stay for tourism or visiting purposes. Upon entry, a “Tarjeta de Turismo” (tourist card) is issued free of charge at the border, which entitles you to stay for a maximum of 90 days. The tourist card must be kept before departure
