- The French Polynesia -

You might be wondering what the connection is between The French Polynesia and Argentina and Chile. In fact it is all about a personal suggestion to offer you a trip a bit further away,

if you have time and the means. It all comes down to the fact that while in Chile, one of the places truly worth visiting is the Isla de Pascua. Once you are there, you will also be situated half way between Chilean lands and the French Polynesia. It has to be admitted that continuing with your trip that way is very tempting when considering that the airway company Lan Chile flies to Tahiti. It is also a good option to fly from Europe via Santiago de Chile to get to Tahiti at least better than via Los Angeles where customs can be very complicated. All in all, the idea is to transmit you that you can end your trip in the Polynesia, a small paradise on the other side of the world.

The 118 islands in the French Polynesia, which are spread around five archipelagos over an area of 4 million km2 equal to the area of Europe itself have typical and immense landscapes, a culture characterized for its dances and ancient songs, traditional and culinary art and a language of its own. The people from Polynesia have known how to keep the traditions and rituals from their ancestral origins. Each island in the Polynesia stands out in a different way: Tahiti and its breath-taking volcanic massifs; Moorea and its valleys full of pineapple plantations; Raiatea and Tahaa, the two sacred islands; Bora Bora, the legendary pearl of the Pacific; Rangiroa, Tikehau, Mani and Fakarava, lower islands closed by a coral ring and a turquoise lagoon; Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa, the guardians of culture; Rurutu and Tubai to the South, in an environment preserved, which is favourable for whale watching.

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!
