Patagonia Travel Guide

Getting to Patagonia - Transportation & Airports

To say Patagonia is remote is an understatement. Encompassing the southern regions of both Argentina and Chile, Patagonia is accessed via flights from Buenos Aires, and Santiago respectively. There are no direct flights from North America or Europe. Direct flights between Patagonian Chile and Argentina are rare, so transport between countries is generally done overland. 

Patagonia's Main Airports

Ushuaia, Argentina - a 3.5-hour flight from Buenos Aires also has 1.5-hour flights to El Calafate (or a 24+ hour bus ride!). Only 4 flights per week to Punta Arenas or a 12-hour bus + ferry ride complicate international transport. Airport: Ushuaia – Malvinas Argentinas International Airport (USH)

El Calafate, Argentina - a 3.25 hour flight from Buenos Aires is the access point for Perrito Moreno Glacier, El Chalten & Glacier National Park. With no flights to Punta Arenas, a 5 hour bus ride to Puerto Natales, then 3 hours to Punta Arenas. El Calafate's airport is Comandante Armando Tola International Airport (FTE).

Punta Arenas, Chile - located on the Strait of Magellan, is a 3.25 hour flight from Santiago. Buses/cars to Puerto Natales (2 hours) is the access point for Torres del Paine. Airport Presidente Carlos Ibáñez del Campo International Airport (PUQ).

United States - There are no direct flights from the US to Ushuaia, Punta Arenas, and El Calafate, but there are 1 stop flights to all of the airports. Check out the US embassy's advice for travel to Argentina and Chile

Canada - There are 2 stop flights from Montreal and Toronto to all the Patagonia airports. Check out the Canadian embassy's advice for travel to Argentina and Chile

New Zealand - Getting from New Zealand to Argentina or Chile can be a long trip, it is likely you will have to stop at 4 different airports to get to one of the Patagonian airports. Cherck New Zealand's embassy's advice for travel to Argentina and Chile.

Australia and the United Kingdom have restrictions for international travel for tourism, check out the UK's and Australia's official website to see up to date information.

The name "Tierra del Fuego" translates to "Land of Fire," and harkens back to when explorer Ferdinand Magellan sailed these waters off the coast of Argentina some 500 years ago and saw many small campfires dotting the coast.

Now, it is the province in the southernmost part of Argentina and the departure point for most Antarctica cruises, which leave from the port of Ushuaia.

On your trip to this part of Patagonia, you will see plenty of sea birds and also have a lot of opportunities to participate in adventurous activities, like:
  • trekking across glaciers
  • kayaking
  • hiking in the mountains
Torres del Paine is perhaps the most famous and popular destination in Chile's Patagonia region. And it's a veritable paradise for the adventure-seeking travelers!

There are a number of activities that you can do here, including hiking, climbing, glacier trekking, and checking out the electric blue icebergs.

Among the hardy wildlife you will spot here are guanacos (which resemble smaller llamas) and even the stealthy pumas. Other wildlife struggles to survive in this habitat.
EcoCamp: Glamping in Torres del Paine
In the windswept environment of Patagonia, camping takes on a luxurious tone at EcoCamp.

As the name suggests, the primary focus of this innovative camp in the middle of Patagonia is to be at one with the serene Torres del Paine, which is why they have designed decadent igloo style huts inspired by the Kawesqar indigenous nomadic groups that once roamed this region.

Spacious cabins put you right in the heart of the National Park, giving you easy access to activities like:
  • hiking & glacier trekking
  • penguin spotting
  • horseback riding
  • kayaking
  • yoga hosted at the main lodge
