Nina & Phil's Awesome Argentina
At the End of the World in Ushuaia
Our Awesome Argentina trip (Buenos Aires to Ushuaia to El Calafate) was truly awesome. World class capital, amazing scenery & penguins at the end of the world, a once in a lifetime glacier walk. Great guides, interesting people, wonderful food.
We arrived at the Buenos Aires International Airport on Sat. around 11:30 am, after our overnight non-stop flight from NYC. By the time we arrived at the Reino Del Plata Hotel by taxi, we had traveled for 18 hours. The Reino Del Plata a small, European style, basic hotel, very close to the Presidential Palace, Florida Street pedestrian shopping …
Summer in the City
Breakfast at the Reino Del Plata is a fairly elaborate buffet, with very strong coffee. Andrea, our guide, met us in the hotel lobby at 9, for a great private 4 hour city tour of various Buenos Aires neighborhoods. Julio drove the large sedan. It was a beautiful late summer day. The first stop was the busy Sunday morning San Telmo neighborhood …
It's the End of the World
Yikes - our alarm clock went off at 5:00 am. At 5:45 am Andrea arrived with a driver, to take us to the Buenos Aires domestic airport for the 7:15 -11:30 am flight to Ushuaia, the world's southernmost city. Since we left the hotel without eating, we enjoyed the ever popular medialunas (croissants) and coffee, served on the plane. When the plane …
Stuck in the Mud Somewhere in the Forest of Tierra del Fuego
After the continental breakfast, we were picked up at 8:30 am, by a small bus. Valentine was our guide for activities at Tierra Del Fuego National Park, about 30 minutes away. The other members of our group this day were Nicholas from Australia, Senia from Russia, 3 women traveling from Barcelona and a father and daughter from Argentina. We …
Wish You Were Here
After breakfast, Augustine picked us up in an SUV, for activities at the remote Harberton Ranch and 2 islands in the Beagle Channel. We wished Augustine a Happy St. Patrick’s Day, but the holiday is barely recognized down here. Augustine proceeded to pick up Senia, the Russian woman on our tour the previous day, Nora from Italy, a man from …
Going Up the Country
We were scheduled for a mid-day, 1.5 hour internal flight to El Calafate, in the Andes. We spent the morning looking for souvenirs in various Ushuaia shops. At one of the cafes at the far end of San Martin we had a 2nd, late morning substantial breakfast, to get us through the rest of the day. One of the other bi-lingual guides from Canal, picked …
Cold as Ice
We rushed out of El Galpon Del Glaciar at 7:40 am with our backpacks and box lunches since the van taking us to the Perito Moreno glacier was a few minutes early. In the late 1800’s, Perito (‘Specialist’) Francisco Moreno explored this still wildness region. The Perito Moreno, non-retreating, glacier is in the huge Glacier …
Running on Empty
This was sadly our last day in Argentina. At breakfast we met the friendly Montana veterinarians on their way to the glacier. They were a threesome on the Adventure Life - End of the World tour. After enjoying the nice breakfast buffet, we saddled up for a beautiful 45 minute, South American style horseback ride to the lake and back. We were led …
