Patagonia

Price: 3.295,00€
Tour Length: 12 days
Availability: 3 seats
Dates: April 12 to 23, 2021.

Come with us to discover and photograph an incredible virgin nature, full of mountains, fjords, glaciers, forests and steppes.

We will visit both the Argentine and Chilean sides of this amazing mountainous region, with some of the most spectacular mountains on the planet rising above glacial lakes and rolling grasslands.

This trip will give you an idea of the unique alpine environments south of the equator, which have remained the same for thousands of years. We will photograph some of the most spectacular places within the The Glaciers and Torres del Paine.

The skies are incredibly clear in the Southern Hemisphere, and on clear nights, this gives us wonderful opportunities to photograph the star-spangled mountains.

It is also a good time to photograph the exquisite colors of autumn. April is autumn in the southern hemisphere, and the intense red colours of the beech trees blend beautifully with the oranges, yellows and greens of other tree species.

We recommend arriving in Buenos Aires the day before (11-4-2021), as the flight we recommend from Buenos Aires to Calafate leaves early.

 

Day 1 (12-4) CALAFATE

We recommend the following flight from Buenos Aires, with Aerolineas Argentinas:

 

Arrival at the airport of El CalafateWe will pick you up from the airport in Argentina (FTE airport code), pick up your luggage and transfer you to your hotel.

We will meet as a group in the afternoon to discuss some aspects of the trip and answer any questions.

Day two. CALAFATE

One of the most impressive glaciers on the planet is the Perito Moreno Glacier, seen from any angle, it's totally spectacular.

There are many points of view, and each one produces images that are unique and spectacular. 

We stayed until sunset to photograph the changing light on this surrealistic landscape.

After breakfast at the hotel we will go to the small village of El ChaltenThe route takes about 3 hours (asphalt road).
