US$ 2,341

Spend 5 days journeying from Bariloche into Chile and onwards to Puerto Varas gaining a better appreciation for the stunning Andean Mountain range by driving and navigating through them.


Weave with the condors through the Patagonian Andes on this spectacular 5 day journey.

Bariloche is Argentina’s outdoor sports capital with good reason, but it’s also a quaint and fascinating city for those who prefer a more relaxing trip. An optional scenic day drive takes you to the area’s most beautiful vistas. For a bird’s eye view over this wilderness, the chair lift to the peak of Campanario Hill is a must. Visit the picturesque harbour town of Playa Bonita and El Trebol Lagoon before your return to Bariloche.

Round the Andean lakes into Chile, enjoying some of the most magnificent scenery in South America until you reach Peulla. You’ll have a full morning to explore this town before going on to Puerto Varas, stopping at the Osorno Volcano, sometimes called the Mount Fuji of the Andes. Finally, drop by the Settler Museum to learn about the history of this region before an overnight in Puerto Montt. You may wish to take a half-day trip to the picturesque town of Frutillar before you depart.
