SüdamerikaRhapsody in blue
Von Buenos Aires aus geht es in den Süden von Chile und Argentinien, nach Patagonien. Gletscher, Seen und Berge erwarten uns, genauso wie "das Ende der Welt" Feuerland.

Rundreise - Rhapsody in blue

  Argentinien  Chile 

Highlights der Rundreise
  • Von Wind und Wetter geprägte Landschaft im Torres-del-Paine-Nationalpark
  • Begegnungen mit der grenzenlosen Natur am Ende der Welt
  • Bootstour im Beagle-Kanal
  • Buenos Aires - Argentiniens lebendige Metropole
Das »Ende der Welt« wird häufig zitiert, wenn nichts mehr zu erwarten ist. Wie man sich doch täuschen kann. Denn wenn das Ende der Welt kurz vor der Antarktis liegt, in diesen atemberaubenden Landschaften zwischen Feuerland und Patagonien, diesem Rausch an überwältigenden Farben und Formen, dann ist das »Ende« der Anfang einer neuen Liebe.

Tag 1

Buenos Aires

Bienvenidos! Welcome to Argentina. Make sure you arrive by 3 pm, in time for the first group meeting. Please have lunch prior to the meeting as we’ll head out on our first activity straight afterwards. In the afternoon your
tour leader will take you for an approximately 2-hour orientation walk around some of Buenos Aires’ main attractions. In the evening you have the option of going out for a group dinner. Buenos Aires is the ultimate cosmopolitan city, so we recommend arriving a day or two early to experience the capital in all its glory. With Latin passion, European elegance and a distinctive style, this is a city that will steal your heart. The Portenos (local
residents) are proud of their city which has distinct barrios (neighbourhoods), each with their own style. Visit San Telmo for its weekend antiques market and artist displays. La Boca was settled by waves of immigrants that built
brightly painted buildings and is also home to the world-class football team Boca Juniors, with murals of famous footballers covering the district’s walls. Finally, Recoleta is the place to browse museums with Buenos Aires’
wealthy.


Tag 2

El Chalten

This morning, fly south from Buenos Aires to El Calafate then travel by van to the frontier town of El Chalten, north of Glacier National Park. Hikers and climbers from all around the world congregate here as a central location to base yourself. The atmosphere is laid-back and the town is definitely orientated to the outdoors type.


Tag 3

El Chalten

The next two days we’ll take on at least two of the most popular day treks in the area. Today, you’re set to hike the 12.5 km round-trip to Laguna de Los Tres: a clear lagoon at the foot of Mount Chalten. Surrounded by snowcapped mountains and striking granite peaks, this hike has some short steep sections, but as one of the most frequented hikes, the terrain itself is not hugely difficult. You can expect to walk from 6 to 9 hours on clearly
marked and well-maintained paths. Wind and rain may be the main challenges you face on these hikes. In the evening, relax in your hotel, perhaps with a dinner with your group.


Tag 4

El Chalten

Today, take a moderate hike to Laguna Torre, leaving from near the hotel. This valley trek, taking around 7 hours, will take you past scenic viewpoints with panoramas of Cerro Solo, Cerro Torre and Mount Fitz Roy. You’ll see
floating icebergs broken off the front face of the spectacular Grande glacier, and upon arrival at Laguna Torre, witness the steep valleys frame Cerro Torre: the highest in its mountain chain. You may even be able to make out a daredevil on the side of the mountain scaling one of its faces.


Tag 5

El Chalten/ El Calafate

Take a well-deserved relax in the morning at your hotel before transferring back to El Calafate. Check into your hotel, and perhaps stake out some Argentinian food at one of the city’s many restaurants. If you’re feeling like something unique, head to the Patagonian Ice Museum, which features educational exhibits, plus a cocktail bar made from ice.


Tag 6

El Calafate / Perito Moreno Glacier

Today, drive to the Perito Moreno Glacier. This is one of the few balanced glaciers in the world and at 3 km (1.8 miles) wide and 30 km (19 miles) long, is a spectacular sight. There are multiple viewing platforms overlooking Lake Argentino, and they provide an ideal vantage point to watch and listen to the crack of the ice as it plunges into the waters below. There is also the option to embark on a Glacier cruise, or even add a mini-hike on part of the Moreno glacier. Once finished soaking up the wonder of this natural formation, return to El Calafate for the night.


Tag 7

Torres del Paine National Park

Be ready for another long travel day. Early in the morning we jump on a local bus to Cerro Castillo in Chile. Here we stop for lunch (not included) while we wait for the connecting bus to Torres del Paine. The campsite will be our home for the next nights and the base from where we’ll take on our day hikes.


Tag 8

Torres del Paine National Park

Sitting at the end of the earth is the awe inspiring Chilean Patagonia. Few people have the opportunity to see this area and those who do find it difficult to forget. Once a sheep estancia, the park was established in 1959. This is magnificent trekking country where nandues, condors and pink flamingos abound. Upon arriving in the park you will most likely be greeted by a herd of guanacos, relatives of alpacas. These strange animals provide great photo opportunities but don’t get too close; they’re likely to spit at you. There’s also some of the world’s best trout and salmon fishing. The real star of the show, however, is the magnificent landscape. With sparkling lakes, gushing waterfalls, glaciers and striking mountains, much of our time trekking is spent slack-jawed in awe of our surrounds. The most popular trek in this area is locally known as "Base Las Torres" (The Tower’s base), your leader will recommend when to take this hike, depending on weather conditions. Another available hike is towards "Refugio Los Cuernos" (The Horns’ Lodge). This trek is long, but it has excellent views of this particular section of the park also known as "Los Cuernos del Paine" (The Horns). You may also have time to take a quick visit to Salto Grande - the park’s biggest waterfall.


Tag 9

Torres del Paine National Park

Depending on the weather conditions your guide will decide about todays trek ("The Tower’s base", "The Horns Lodge", "The Horn").


Tag 10

Puerto Natales

You will be taken on a full day guided tour around another part of Torres del Paine National park including a visit to grey lake before transferring to Puerto Natales where you will spend the night.  Once a modest fishing port and now a gateway to Torres, there won’t be much time to explore Puerto Natales but hopefully you can venture out for dinner and trial some of boutique beer or wine around town.


Tag 11

Ushuaia

Today we hit the road for one last time - a 14-hour bus ride takes us back to Argentina and to the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia. 


Tag 12

Ushuaia

Ushuaia is the gateway to Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego, Argentina’s only coastal park. This morning, embark on an included boat trip on the Beagle Channel. Observe the marine wildlife among the small islands and inlets
along this waterway, named after Charles Darwin’s expedition ship, the HMS Beagle.


Tag 13

Ushuaia

Today, you have a free day for you to explore southern Ushuaia and its surrounds, so why not book yourself into one of the optional activities on offer. You could head on a penguin tour to see a number of different species,
most of which inhabit Martillo Island. Otherwise, you could take on a hike at Martial Glacier, close to a mountain range of the same name, and offering panoramic views of the Beagle Channel.


Tag 14

Buenos Aires

Return to Buenos Aires by plane. You’ll intend to arrive back in Argentina’s capital in the early hours of the afternoon, however your group leader will advise of any changes. As you’re back in the big city, feast in one of the many restaurants on offer, and perhaps take a look at Buenos Aires’ vibrant nightlife with your fellow travellers. 


Tag 15

Buenos Aires

As there are no activities planned, you are free to depart at any time on Day 15. If you didn’t have the opportunity to see Buenos Aires before your Patagonia tour, why not now? There are plenty of galleries, museums and historic buildings to keep you entertained. On the east side of the Plaza de Mayo you will find the Casa Rosada, the pink presidential palace where Eva Peron appeared on the balcony in front of adoring fans in the 1940s. There is also a Museo Evita, dedicated to the life (and gowns) of this famed figure. MALBA is an incredible art gallery showcasing a private collection, including works by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and great temporary exhibits.
