      tours to el Calafate

      El Calafate Jan 21, 2017 at 8:58 AM

      Hallo my friends. Pls advice me to the following:
      1. A good tour company to make the Upsala and spegazzini glaciers tour.
      2. Would you suggest to visit also the Estancia Cristina or only the boat tour?
      3. Any other half day tour you would suggest that is worth. Our plane leaves at 17.00 so we have the morning free.
      Many thanks.

    • River Plate Game

      Buenos Aires Jan 20, 2017 at 3:32 AM

      Hi everyone!

      My girlfriend and I are going to Buenos Aires in March, and we'd like to go a to a football game. Since Boca Junior is playing away, we'd like to go to River Plate vs. Sarmiento de Junin (March 19th).

      It seems that tickets are available on Viagogo, but the cheapest are about 65€ / each. Do you know any other way to get tickets (I'd rather avoid buying tickets in the streets before the game, since I've read some of them are fake).

      Thank you very much! Romain

      kayak trip from Bariloche

      by slowbackpackers Online Now Sep 14, 2014 at 3:41 PM

      dear travelmates,
      Together with my husband I am going to come to Bariloche next month, October and we are planning an exciting tour with lot of hiking and most of all kayaking. Our plan is to travel bvy kayak the river Limay and the Rio Negro all the way down to the sea. First we thought about bringing our own kayaks from Spain but the cost to transport them would be higher than what we have paied for them in the first place... now we have checked out some shops but I would rather like to get a second hand one. Does anybody know about a place where we could get 2 second hand kayaks or can anybody get us in contact with somebody?
      We already counted in to stay about 2 weeks in Bariloche to get all or stuff ready but maybe here we can find somebody to help us.
      all the best
      Monika and Gustavo

      My friends and I are planning a 4 week travel in Argentina from mid September to mid October.
      We really want to see Bariloche as well, since we've heard it's the most beautiful place in Argentina.
      However, understood that since it's on the south, it might still be pretty cold and even snowy on that time period.
      Can you tell me what is the actual weather on that time period based on your experience?

      Actual Weather/Ash Condition

      I will be travalling to Argentina in early December. I have been told that the Airport at Bariloche will remain closed until late December because of maintenance work after due to the ashes from the volcano.

      It is an option to take a bus, BUT I would like to know how are the conditions right now in Bariloche. I don't want to spend 8hrs in a bus just to find a cloudy-gray Bariloche covered with ashes.

      We are going to Bariloche and the surrounding Lake District area in next late April. I was told that it would be rainy during those days. Will there be a good chance that we will get good weather? Furthermore, we will hire a car and drive by ourselves. Will the road (in particular the seven lakes route) be too bad to drive during those rainy season? Will there be snow? Do we need snow chain? Any advice will be much appreciated.

      since our hotel is 20 minutes from the center of town what would be the best
      way to get around. Has anyone been to Aldebaran Hotel & Spa. Do you know of
      an upscale hotel closer to town? Don't really need the spa but liked the
