Among my favorites, I will not speak of the great classics like the Iguazu Falls, the Atacama Desert, the Perito Moreno Glacier, the Fitz Roy, the Peninsula Valdes, the national park Torres Del Paine, Easter Island... (that they are, every places, not to be missed). But this space is for especially talk about places least known, also exceptional, that I particularly like:

The autumn in Patagonia (Argentina / Chile)

My first favorite will be for you like talking about a season: The autumn in Patagonia...

In the northern part of this region, little known and not much visited, therefore, reduced are the comments in the guidebooks. Throughout the Andes, there are a multitude of huge lakes, streams and intrepid forest, sometimes impenetrable.

In autumn, the forest of ancient trees, allow to observe their intense colors: red, orange and yellow. Days without wind, the color palette is reflected in the mirrors formed by lakes.

The snowy peaks forming the Andes Mountains and the nearby volcanoes, white screened these great landscapes.

Visit Patagonia in the fall has only advantages; in my opinion, the festival of colors, few tourists, the days can be with pleasant temperatures, contrary to what might expect. And because it's low season, all places are deserted.

For those who want to explore Patagonia like you imagine...

Patagonia in all seasons menu. For example, according to the climate, from Bariloche, in Patagonia Argentina, it is possible to go to Puerto Montt, in Chile, crossing successively three lakes by boat, as did the Jesuits and the first German settlers. I offer a tour that leads to the Pacific Ocean. It is quite long, but the beauty of the sites - forests, volcanoes and crystalline lakes - is such that it is worth to be carried. The Argentine side, cross the west arm of Nahuel Huapi and Lake Puerto Alegre and, the chilen side, Lake Todos los Santos. Moving from one lake to another by bus. This tour is feasible in all seasons, but in winter, it takes two days to reach Puerto Montt, stopping for one night at Peulla. We returned to Bariloche by air or by the same way, after a night in Puerto Montt. Borispatagonia is also responsible for visas to go to Chile and to book hotels. In Patagonia, winter and summer are tourist seasons. In summer, besides explore the surrounding, many activities are available: climbing, torrent fishing, sailing, horseback riding, hiking, rides, visits to Aciendas... In winter, the main activity is, of course, skiing, especially in July and August on the side of the Andes, but not only: snowshoe hikes, thematic tours, many walks to admire the beauty of Patagonia Argentina and Chile in this season, due a unique light, the warmth of the people of Patagonia... Just to talk about, I get goose bumps!
