Discovery of Patagonia

Trip description

A three week stay allows you to spend one whole week to discover a region according to your tastes and the season; combine for example the Cuyo and the Northwest, and follow the Andes. Or Patagonia (including Puerto Madryn, to contemplate the southern whales show) and Iguazú or a short stay in Salta. Note that the Salta is most popular region today with French-speaking travellers. It is one of the most beautiful in Argentina. If you don't know Bolivia or Peru (and even if you know these two wonderful countries, by the way), try at all costs to visit the Salta and Jujuy region, at the expense of the ones which you think are unmissable. If we had to choose between Bariloche and Ushuaia, maybe we would choose Bariloche. But we know that most of the travellers go to Ushuaia to feel like being at the end of the world...
