Welcome arrive in Bariloche
Arrival in San Carlos de Bariloche, tour in the city, history, nature and local gastronomic culture. Meeting with the guide team and logistics. Night in Bariloche.
We will pick up passengers from their accommodation and drive to Bahía López Port, a port built in 1929, to enter the pristine and wild Brazo Tristeza, a deep glacial fiord in the southwest of Nahuel Huapi Lake. The waters of the lake are protected by the rugged mountains and as we move forward we will discover numerous waterfalls.
The forest gradually will start to look like the dense Valdivian Jungle, as the forest is called in certain sectors of the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Once we arrive at the end of the arm lake, we will disembark for a simple walk along a rough path to reach the great waterfall of Frey Creek (Arroyo Frey), surprising and elegant, in the heart of the jungle; an idyllic place of pure nature.
After a calm and memorable moment of contemplation, we will return the same way to embark and sail back while enjoying a lunch. We will return to the accomodation place in the afternoon.
Bariloche – Musters' Trail Lodge
We will leave early from Bariloche to drive by the untamed 23 National Route, which crosses the Patagonian steppe from west to east. We will learn about the history of immigrants, pioneers, merchants, engineers and workers who built and traced the arrival of the Patagonian railroad. On this first day in the steppe we will also learn about the history of George Musters, an English sailor and adventurer explorer who once traveled through Patagonia on foot between 1869 and 1870 visiting this region next to the native Tehuelche community of Cacique Casimiro.
We will arrive in the afternoon at the Musters’ Trail Remote Lodge, located in a key place during the “rastrilladas” (old Tehuelche transhumance trails) where we will spend the night. We will have a traditional Patagonian dinner made in the simple wood stoves while we light up the bonfire and enjoy the sounds of the steppe.
Musters' Trail – Discovering the authentic Patagonia
On this day we will discover open up roads, caves with ancient paintings, we will visit archaeological and paleontological sites, and we will have an approach to the living culture of the original natives who keep maintaining the spirit of their ancestral traditions. We will return to the lodge in the afternoon to enjoy a cooking class and the ritual of the Patagonian lamb roast.
Musters' Trail – Península Valdés
We will leave early from the lodge to make a stop at the local museum, and little by little we will take the route to the east. We will visit a petrified forest going back to 90 million years ago, and then continue crossing the steppe to reach the Atlantic ocean. We will stop at a classic country warehouse for lunch and then continue along number 3 National Route the “Blue Route”, arriving at Peninsula Valdes in the afternoon to enjoy a sublime sunset, a seafaring dinner and a good rest.
We will leave early to explore Peninsula Valdés, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999. This is a world-renowned significant place of preservation of marine mammals. The site is home to important breeding populations of endangered Southern Right Whales, as well as elephants and sea lions. The killer whales of the region practice a unique hunting strategy of its kind, which is the result of their adaptation to the specific conditions of the coastline and the colonies of penguins (Spheniscus magellanicus) who populate different coasts of the Peninsula. Our team will be in charge of designing a memorable experience that will make this trip something unique in your travel book. We will move in the afternoon to Puerto Madryn, where we will enjoy our ‘goodbye dinner’ while we will share and remember our anecdotes.
This is our goodbye day, it will be a free day in order to enjoy and get to know the city until the pick up to the airport.
