      Transport in the north

      Argentina Yesterday

      We want to explore the following regions in Argentina next year in May: Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Talampaya NP, Salta,Puna, Tolar Grande/Salar Rio Grande/ Antofagasta de la Sierra, esteros del Ibera, Iguazu falls. Most agencies advise us to do a self drive due to the fact that private transport (with driver ) is very expensive. Has anyone done self drives in this region? Is this doable as a foreigner?

      by klaus1967 Online Now Feb 20, 2007 at 7:34 AM

      Hi all,

      we are planning a trip to El Chalten in March 2007. We bought the useful book "Trekking in the Patagonian Andes" but unfortunately it does not contain any GPS waypoints.

      Could anyone please provide us with the GPS waypoints for

      Laguna de los Tres
      Campamento Rio Blanco / Poincenot / Agostini
      Glaciar Piedras Blances
      Mirador Cerro Terro
      ...

      Thank you in advance ! Any hints for hiking in this area are very welcome.

      Klaus

      short walks in Fitz Roy - El Chaltén area?

      by MariusG Online Now Nov 9, 2003 at 1:51 PM

      We plan a trip to Patagonia in January and I thought to stay, among others, in for a couple of days, and taking several short walks of 2-3 hours each. One opinion that I got says bad idea - all the area is steep, mainly for mountain climbing by experienced sportsman or at least trekkers in good shape; the other opinion says good idea, since there are plenty of easy walks, for all ages and fitness. What is your experience? Any advice will be appreciated.
