Argentina & Chile Tour Reviews

Best trip ever!

  • Olivia Kingston
“Bariloche has long been on my travel bucket list, and my recent journey through the Seven Lakes region was nothing short of breathtaking. This trip was an exhilarating exploration of nature's wonders, and it left me with memories to last a lifetime. The adventure began in Bariloche, where I was welcomed by the stunning views of Lake Nahuel Huapi and the majestic Andes Mountains. The picturesque town itself had a charming alpine feel, and it was the perfect starting point for our adventure through the Seven Lakes. Each lake we visited had its unique charm and beauty, from Lake Correntoso with its mesmerizing deep blue waters to Lake Villarino, surrounded by serene forests. Each stop provided a different perspective of nature's grandeur. If you're seeking an adventure in the heart of Patagonia, I highly recommend exploring the Seven Lakes.”
I loved Patagonia!

  • Edward Nicholas Li
“My trip to Patagonia was one of the best that I have ever done. The landscapes and the people were something that I would never forget. El Calafate was absolutely beautiful, full of lakes and glaciers. Perito Moreno Glacier is unique and a must if you are travelling to Argentina. I also booked the full day tour to El Chalten, which is very nice but I would have preferred to stay for a few nights in the village to do some of the treks in the area but I did not have many days. I stayed at Hotel Mirador del Lago which has amazing views of Argentino lake. Torres del Paine National Park was equally amazing. Our guide Lucas was incredible and very knowledgeable. Hotel Altiplanico was so beautiful. 100% recommend this tour.”
Highly recommened!

“I would definitely recommend taking the Jungle boat ride. If you don't like getting wet, then forget about it, because you will get trenched! They give each person a bag to keep your personal items dry, such as your cell phone & other valuables. In this regard, the bag is even big enough for some clothing, so you could wear a bathing suit & place the rest of your clothing inside the bag or bring a change of clothes. You could always wear a very lightweight rain coat, but you'll probably still get wet, just not as trenched. Personally, I found getting soaked was quite refreshing & even enhanced the experience. When i arrives to Iguazu the tour was fully booked, but thanks to Say Hueque they found a place for me before I left Iguazu. They have a great service, I highly recommend traveling with them.”

Argentina and Chile Tours and Trips

Traveling to Argentina and Chile: An Overview

Planning your tour to Argentina and Chile? We've got all the essentials to help you make the right choices, from transportation options to tips, to trip highlights.

Getting from Argentina and Chile

One of the most common ways to travel between Argentina and Chile is by crossing the majestic Andes Mountains, a natural border that separates the two countries. The awe-inspiring Los Libertadores Pass, linking Mendoza in Argentina to Santiago in Chile, is a popular route for road trips and takes approximately 5 hours. Traveling by bus is also popular; the most commonly used routes include Buenos Aires to Santiago (about 23 hours) and Bariloche to Puerto Montt (6 hours).

For those seeking swifter passage, consider taking a flight. Major cities in Argentina, such as Buenos Aires and Mendoza, are well-connected to cities in Chile, including Santiago and Valparaíso. The flight duration is roughly 2 hours, making it a convenient option for travelers with time constraints.

You can also travel from Argentina to Chile by cruise ship, from ports like Buenos Aires or Ushuaia to cities like Valparaíso or Punta Arenas in Chile. This option provides a unique and scenic journey along the southern coast.
For adventurous travelers, cycling or hiking across the Andes is also an option. There are several trails and routes, but they require careful planning and are best suited for experienced outdoor enthusiasts.

Best Time to Visit Argentina and Chile

Visit at the right time to make the most of your Argentina and Chile tours. For those looking to explore Argentina's vibrant cities like Buenos Aires and Mendoza, or indulge in its famous wine regions, the ideal time is during the spring (September to November) or fall (March to May) when the weather is mild, and the crowds are thinner.

In contrast, Patagonia's pristine landscapes are best enjoyed during the southern hemisphere's summer (December to February) when trekking and outdoor activities are at their peak. Remember that popular destinations may be busier during this period, so plan your accommodations and activities in advance. Chile shares a similar climate, with its northern regions being pleasant year-round and the southern parts, including Patagonia and Torres del Paine, being most accessible and awe-inspiring during the summer.

If you prefer quieter travel, lower prices, or winter activities, the low season is your best bet. Winter, from June to August, offers incredible opportunities for skiing and snowboarding in the Andes Mountains.

Read our guide on the best time to visit Argentina and the best time to visit Chile for a full overview.
 

Highlights of Argentina and Chile Trip

  • Take a trip to Buenos Aires and Santiago, the capitals of Argentina and Chile. Experience the lively scenes of La Boca and San Telmo in Buenos Aires, featuring tango performances and street art. In Santiago, visit vibrant markets and cultural landmarks like La Moneda Palace.
  • Embark on wine tours in Chile and Argentina, and explore the world-renowned wine regions of Mendoza and the Colchagua Valley. Discover the rich viticulture traditions that unite these two countries. Sample exquisite Malbecs and Carménères in the breathtaking vineyard setting.
  • Hike the Andes Mountains, spanning Argentina and Chile. Marvel at South America's iconic beauty: rugged terrain, clear lakes, and snow-capped peaks.
  • Discover Patagonia's wilderness and explore iconic national parks like Argentina's Los Glaciares and Chile's Torres del Paine. Pot penguins, guanacos, condors, and elusive pumas. Our best tours of Chile and Argentina will also take you to the Lakes District, where you can cruise on crystal-clear water, visit charming lakeside towns like Bariloche and Puerto Varas, and soak in the stunning vistas of snow-capped volcanoes and lush forests.
  • Enjoy a cross-border gastronomic adventure. Argentine steaks with Malbec wines and Chilean seafood like ceviche and salmon. Sample the beloved empanadas in both countries.

Argentina and Chile Travel Tips

  • Consult the local event calendar to find out about festivals and events during your Argentina and Chile tours. Argentina is famous for its Tango festivals, while Chile hosts numerous celebrations, such as Fiestas Patrias.
  • Prepare for Patagonia's unpredictable weather, including strong winds, rain, and snow even in summer. Pack layers, waterproof clothing, and sturdy footwear for adaptable comfort.
  • Expect delays when crossing the Argentina-Chile border, especially during peak travel seasons. Be prepared for thorough customs and immigration checks. Carry essential documents: passport, visa (if required), and a copy of your travel plans.
  • Both countries have their currencies: the Argentine Peso and the Chilean Peso. To avoid unfavorable rates, exchange currency beforehand or withdraw cash from ATMs in larger cities before crossing the border, as options might be limited in remote areas.
  • Learn local customs for cultural respect. In Chile, greet with a kiss on the right cheek; in Argentina, a firm handshake is typical.
  • While English can suffice in touristy areas, dedicating some effort to acquire a few fundamental Spanish phrases can enrich your travel adventure. It can foster deeper connections and help you navigate off-the-beaten-path destinations with ease.
