TRAVEL | Patagonia in luxury (Chile + Argentina)

Trip to PATAGONIA (main part in south of Chile and Argentina) I did in October 2015. It was also my first trip to South America.
Shortly - very unique landscapes full of icebergs, sharp mountains, condors (the biggest bird in the world) and guanicoe. One of the places to be before die. This is not typical luxury destination - more for high-level backpacking in kind of basic style. How come for me it was luxury?


Let's start from James Bond style hotel with full luxury in the middle of nowhere (meaning far from big civilisation). My fiance took me to Puerto Natales where is hotel Singular Patagonia. The hotel was transformed from old factory into loft style huge hotel with all convenience . Inside we had an access to spa with outside warm pool, fancy and cosy restaurant, private tour guide, art exhibition/museum inside and finally room with panoramic wall-window.

 Bar/restaurant full of leather and wood.

Torres Del Paine (Chile) - National Park full of  monumental rocks, icebergs, lakes and animals like guanaco, condors, nandu, pumas and flamingos.

Lakes with different color each. It is caused by different minerals. 

 Beautiful rainbow near waterfall!

Luxury hotel in the middle of lake!


Perito Moreno (Argentina) - HUGE iceberg in National Park Los Glaciares.

 Total iceberg is MUCH bigger than it seems on picture


 The North Face style :)



Another important city was Punta Arenas, Chile. Exactly there Fernando Magellan crossed  - STRAIT OF MAGELLAN. You can find there even Museum Nao Victoria with rekonstruction of his ship (incredibly tiny for such a long journey).

Also - one of the most beautiful cementaris in the world (yes - cementary!!!) named Cementerio Municipal.



It was so unique and fascinating trip. I always wanted to spend some time with naturę in cosy poncho and simplicity but luxury and it was like that. For sure I'd like to come back there one day.


Thank you so much for reading!
