A 250km drive to Punta Arenas today, taking the local transfer bus service again. Views were somewhat different to the previous few days, a rolling steppe, populated by herds of sheep on large estancias, and random rhea spotted every now and again. We passed numerous lakes, some with flamingo, but this was a journey to finish a book and just snooze.
Oops, the weather just changed...
A clear day dawned, with stunning light on the Torres del Paine in the early morning, with mist slowly rising from the Rio Serrano.
Day 6 - Viedma Glacier Trek!
Day 5 - To the summit of Loma del Pliegue Tumbado 1500m!
The devasting earthquake in Chile is another terrible natural disaster that shocks our world and our hearts go out to the people in that country. In terms of our clients we do not have any tours in Chile at this time so no-one was affected and we do not have any groups arriving on other tours until next week. We will work with our local operators to see what impact this will have for those groups.
Day 4 - Fitzroy Base Camp!
Colin Stump, who heads up the Travel Adventure Division at TUI, travelled with us on our Patagonian Highlights tour this month. Follow his journey with this day by day account as he travels from the cosmopolitan streets of Buenos Aires to the wild and remote lands of Patagonia and down to the southern tip of Latin America, Tierra del Fuego and Ushuaia.
Starting with the arrival in Buenos Aires, here are his first three days - to tide you over the weekend!
