This trip is a super way to dabble your toes into some of the greatness and splendor in Argentina's renown Southern Patagonia area. You get to see and have a taste of many things, from lakes and flamingoes to glaciers and mountains, to desert landscapes and archeology -- all in a few short days!
Walk Patagonia does a superb organizational job, supplying lunches and snacks, making sure stops are well-planned and timed, and arranging lodging that is comfortable.
One of the great things about this type of trip, which I experienced before this precise itinerary was put together, was the combination -- a true palette of surprises that just leaves you drooling for more.
For anyone considering the trip: Take waterproof gear and footwear! And a mix of items for both warm and cold weather. You can always layer and nobody will care if you wear the same thing just about everyday!
My goal is to return to Chalten for 4 or 5 days and then have the luxury of time to wait for the best weather to do long day treks. And now I know what to expect and where I want to return based on this trips smorgasbord of experiences.
