Chilean Patagonia

Trip description

If you only have 15 days to discover Patagonia, you will probably want to see the main sites: Torres del Paine, Perito Moreno Glacier, Ushuaia.... However, don't necessarily limit your trip to these beautiful sites. Especially in January-February, you will soon realize that you will not be alone.. There are also other places that are not always considered during a stay in Patagonia, which are well worth a long visit: the region of Pucón in Chile in particular (very popular with Chileans), which allows a host of activities in complicity with Mother Nature; Chiloé for its churches and its generous nature; El Bolsón for its vaguely hippy atmosphere of organic farms; the whole Southern Route for its Dantean landscapes, its atmosphere of another time; the surroundings of Perito Moreno (the city, not the glacier) for its park of the same name, so typical of Patagonia as we imagine it (estancias, gauchos, etc.))... Fjord cruises are also a great time to enjoy.
