We spent September exploring Patagonia and soaking in as much of it as possible. Although winter hasn’t quite given way to spring down here, we were able to do some awesome outside activities. Our journey through the region officially began in a small Argentine town with German roots, Bariloche. From here we headed out for a little hiking in Nahuel Huapi National Park, just outside of town, and ended our days trying out some of the region’s famous chocolate shops. After Bariloche we crossed over the border to Puerto Varas, Chile where we went kayaking on the Reloncavi fjord and spotted some playful sea lions during the trip! We headed north from here to Pucon, Chile where we attempted to summit the most active volcano in South America, Villaricca but were forced to turn around due to unsafe conditions. A short flight to Balmaceda, Chile brought us to the starting point for driving down the Carretera Austral to Puerto Rio Tranquilo to see the Marble Caves. This fun little side trip turned into quite the adventure after our cabin caught on fire (post from Bryci on the way) and we ended up having to travel almost 62 hours by bus and ferry to get to El Chalten, Argentina. We finally made it and hiked up to the majestic Mt. Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. Luckily El Calafate was only a couple hours away and there we went trekking on the Perito Moreno glacier. That wraps up Part 1 of our Patagonia adventures, stay tuned for our second video of the “W” trek through the gorgeous Torres Del Paine national park in Chile!!!
