After 3 long months of wandering throughout South America, 17 different locations, thousands of km… it was time to chill out and relax for a while.
And Santiago de Chile, believe it or not, suited me perfectly. Continue reading Santiago de Chile: a Nice Surprise
I wanted to keep going with my volcano exploring; Puerto Varas was just the beginning.
And if Volcán Osorno and Volcán Calbuco were not sufficiently dangerous, well, Volcán Villarrica in Pucón beats them all. So much so that you wonder why you need a gas mask to hike it… Continue reading Pucón: Chasing Active Volcanoes
Of course this depends on whether you love trekking, you’re learning Spanish, backpacking or digital nomading… but on average we believe 1-3 days is the right amount of time.
In this case, unlike for places like Buenos Aires or Iguazú, you need to pay attention: Lonely Planet forum suggest 4-14 days, Fodors reminds you you definitely need to hire a car and visit the whole region, yes, they are all talking about the whole REGION/PROVINCE (with nights in different locations) and not just the town itself.
But let’s now break down what we believe are the ideal stay lengths depending on your trip objective. We spent 10 days in Salta working as digital nomads so hopefully we can help you with your trip planning! Continue reading How long to stay in Salta, Argentina
It took me a while to find a decent place after Torres del Paine – I spent most of my time travelling up north and testing places out. Until I found the volcanoes. The dangerous ones. Continue reading Puerto Varas: Volcanoes Are Cool (Unless They Erupt)
Of course this depends on whether you’re backpacking, digital nomading or relaxing… but on average we believe 2-3 days is the right amount of time.
TripAdvisor suggests 2 days & 2 nights, Fodors suggests 1 or 2, but let’s now break down what we believe are the ideal stay lengths depending on your trip objective. We spent 5 days in Iguazú working as digital nomads and they were way too many, so hopefully we can help you with your trip planning! Continue reading How long to stay in Iguazú Falls (Argentina & Brazil)
Coming from Tierra del Fuego and with my plan being travelling towards the North of Chile, I just couldn’t NOT go to Torres del Paine. I really enjoyed trekking in Argentina, and Torres is definitely the hot spot for this activity in Chile.
Although, I find it hard not to pronounce “Paine” in the English way: “pain”. This park was a huge pain indeed! Continue reading Torres del Paine (Chile): the Good, the Bad & the Ugly
Of course this depends on whether you’re learning Spanish, backpacking, digital nomading… but on average we believe 5-7 days is the right amount of time.
Lonely Planet forum suggest 5-10 days, TripAdvisor 3-10 days, Frommer’s suggest 5, but let’s now break down what we believe are the ideal stay lengths depending on your trip objective. We spent 21 days in Buenos Aires working as digital nomads so hopefully we can help you with your trip planning! Continue reading How long to stay in Buenos Aires, Argentina
Having travelled the whole country of Argentina, the only way to end it properly was to reach the “End of the World”. And so I did. Continue reading Ushuaia: literally, the End of the World
I was looking for a nice way to spend Christmas in Argentina, and with my glacier trekking tour completed, I decided to go to El Chaltén, Argentina’s Trekking Capital, located only 3 hours North of El Calafate. Continue reading El Chaltén: Christmas @ Argentina’s Trekking Capital
Once you reach Southern Patagonia you get into a trap. Literally, you’re in the middle of nowhere. There is a town (if you can call it like that even) every 150km or thereabouts. You really are at the end of the World. You’re stuck. There is nothing around you. You’re alone, in the South of South America. Continue reading El Calafate: the Trap. Glaciar Milk. And the “Man of the Glacier”…
