Patagonia – Our Greatest Adventure

The Greatest Adventure. (Feel free to cue the tune from  Rankin & Bass’ animated version of The Hobbit. Here, for your convenience.Embrace Glenn Yarbrough.)

Well, for us anyways.

December & January saw Katie and I embark on the great Patagonian trek we’ve been planning/dreaming of since arriving in South America. Work scheduled demanded a more focused, short stop trip than the epic 12,000km road trips some of our friends have gone on. Had to maximize our time at each stop. Most of our time would be in Argentina, with a short 3 day trek into Chile.

(Used driving tool to give an idea of the extent of our travels, even if we flew most of it.)

Stops included:

Buenos Aires – Spend the Christmas holidays with friends before heading further South
El Calafate  – Hub in Patagonia near the Perrito Moreno Glacier
El Chalten – Very small town near Mount Fitz-Roy
Puerto Natales – Bus into Chile to see the Torres del Paine National Park
Ushuaia – Southernmost city in the world. None more South
San Carlos de Bariloche – Relax (and work) for a couple weeks in the beautiful lake district

Each has their own entry, chock full o’ pics, linked above for your convenience.
