Read about our favourite day of the trip so far (not including Antarctica). Today we were upping our game and taking on the Laguna de los Tres trek, a 9 hour round trip that ends with excellent views of Fitz Roy. 25kms in total, with a total elevation of 750 meters – this was going to be a challenge!
Another early morning bus, this time to El Chalten to meet the mighty Fitz Roy. After days of bad weather, the sky today was perfectly clear so we had our fingers crossed we’d have better weather in El Chalten. People come to El Chalten for one thing only, hiking, and so in a very clever move […]
After another beautiful 6-hour bus ride through the Patagonian countryside, we arrived in El Calafate. We were here for just one thing – to visit the impressive Perito Moreno Glacier in Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. The Perito Moreno Glacier is one of the world’s only glaciers still advancing. As we entered the park, we readied ourselves for another day of terrible weather. The rainbows the only upside to the rain and cold.
Following our return from Antarctica, we had a couple of days to pass in Ushuaia before setting off for Chile. Having spent the first afternoon back enjoying a few drinks with Craig & Erin before saying our goodbyes, we also made arrangements for a day trip to the Isla de Los Pajaros in the Tierra del […]
So here we are, at the Fin del Mundo or End of the World. Ushuaia is the southern most city in the world and the departure point for our Antarctica trip. We were feeling excited but also scared and apprehensive. It’s a once in a lifetime trip and the cost reflected that. What if it […]
The trip to Puerto Iguazu was our first adventure in Argentina after spending 2 months living in Buenos Aires. The main reason (actually the only reason) for the trip was to visit the Iguazu Waterfalls, which meant the days beforehand had been spent studying the local weather as blue skies and sunshine make such a […]

Just an hour north by train, Tigre is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. Perfect for a weekend day trip to take in the waterways of the Parana Delta, Tigre is a lovely place to pass a summer afternoon. We liked it so much we visited twice during our time […]
It’s said that in Argentina they worship god and football and this is evident everywhere you look. Bus drivers adorn their cabs with pictures of Jesus, Maradona or their relevant football team. Shops and restaurants display the colours of their favoured team (more often than not Boca or River Plate) and all day, every day, […]
What do you when you’ve wandering around San Telmo markets all afternoon and you’re tired, thirsty and hungry? You can’t stomach pizza again and you had your fill of empanadas during the week. Simple – you need a choripan (chorizo sausage in a roll) from one of the car park vendors. As you get closer […]
