Itinerary

Day 1: Travel to Patagonia: El Calafate

Today, Southern Patagonia welcomes you with open arms. El Calafate is a jumping-off point for adventure travelers who chace to unearth the most spellbinding natural wonders of Patagonia, like the Perito Moreno Glacier.

The Perito Moreno glacier is one of the only glaciers in the world that’s still advancing.  Though it’s not the only glacier in the area is the one that made the city of El Calafate famous worldwide. For many years now, El Calafate has been considered capital of the glaciers. Located at the shore of Lago Argentino (the southernmost, largest Patagonian lake) it’s also home of the Spegazzini glacier, which forms the natural border between Argentina and Chile, and the Upsala glacier, named Glaciar del Gigante (Giant’s glacier) upon its discovery and the biggest glacier that sits at the mouth of Lake Argentino.

Is El Calafate all about the glaciers? Well, yes and no…glaciers are main attractions that you can visit via hiking or a boat ride. But you have lot more to discover about Argentine rural culture. From Calafate you can also visit a typical Patagonian finca (ranch) and learn all about the gaucho culture  and enjoy a great asado (barbecue). You’ll soon realize that Calafate is much more than the gateway to the Perito Moreno glacier. 

Upon arrival you will be taken to the hotel and have the rest of the day to relax or explore the surroundings.

Say Hueque Tips

Take a look at our Calafate Travel Guide to find more practical information about the city. Our advice: if you feel like exploring a bit on your own, you can visit The Glaciarium Museum and learn about the history of glaciers and its first explorers. To get to the museum there is a transfer you can take at the Tourist Office.

Day 2: El Calafate: Perito Moreno Glacier Tour

In the morning, we’ll drive you to Glaciers National Park to take the 6 hour long Perito Moreno Glacier tour. Get prepared to play with the giants!

Glaciers National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1981 and home to 200 approximately glaciers. Half of this park is occupied by the campo de hielo patagónico (Patagonian ice field), the largest ice field after Antarctica. You will travel 40 km (about 25 miles) from El Calafate to the park, enjoying the views of the Patagonian steppe. Once inside the park you will take the walkways to explore the different viewpoints, and you’ll feel really close to the Perito Moreno Glacier. If you’re lucky, you may get to see a piece of ice break off and fall from the glacier wall to sink forever into the lake.

During about one hour, a bilingual guide will provide you with all the information you might want to know…and things you might have never thought about. After this visit you will take a boat ride that will take you close enough to fully appreciate the 80 meter (262 feet) high ice walls of Perito Moreno! You’ll never feel closer to this gigantic and impressive natural masterpiece.

Have you ever imagined walking over the the back of a glacier? Well, if your answer is no, why don’t you take a look to the Mini Trekking on the Perito Moreno Glacier…We’re sure you won’t regret it.   

Day 3: Your free day at El Calafate

We told you that El Calafate is much more than haunting glaciers…today is your perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in rural culture of Patagonia.

Inside Glaciers National park, at the end of NR 15, after a 1 h 30 drive over a rubble road, sits Nibepo Aike Ranch one of the oldest and traditional Patagonian ranches of the area. It’s the only ranch that maintains sheep and Hereford cattle breeding as its main occupation. You can take a day trip to visit its 12 000, learn about its history, witness a shearing demonstrations and a test for horse reins. At the end of the day, a grilled lambed will awaits sizzling in its Patagonian traditional cross stake.

Day 4: From El Calafate to El Chalten: Patagonia hiking

During the morning you will take a public bus to start your 3 hour long trip to El Chaltén. You’ll travel along the famous Route 40, surrounded by the Patagonian steppe, pass through La Leona River, which connects Lake Argentino and Lake Viedma and where stands La Leona Road house, where the famous thieves, Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid hided for a month.

After discovering other rough gems of this particular landscape, you’ll reach El Chaltén. El Chaltén is the top rated hiking destination in Argentina. This charming little village sits at the foot of Fitz Roy Mountain and it’s surrounded by glaciers, lakes, rivers and forest. It’s also the jumping-off point for most hiking trails. A paradise for sunny walkers and hikers alike.

Enjoy your first afternoon of leisure in Patagonia to relax in the local brewery or explore the surrounding areas—Maybe stroll around a little waterfall…

Take a look to our favorite hikes in our Chaltén Travel Guide, and take note of our travel advices on how to visit the area.

Day 5: Trekking in El Chalten: mountains and lakes (self guided)

Today be prepared for an exciting day into the wild. El Chaltén offers a wide range of options of hiking paths of varied difficulty. You can choose where and when to go, since paths are self-guided and very well marked and maintained.

From the main door of your hotel, you can go for a short 3 kilometres walk to Cerro Torre viewpoint—it will take you around 1 hour. Enjoy Rio de las Vueltas and lenga forest amazing views and be prepared to see all kind of birds—This is great woodpecker spotting opportunity!

For truly hiking lovers, continue all the way to Base Torre or go for the 8 hour long hike to the most impressive view to Fitz Roy Mountain and emerald waters of Laguna de los Tres. Though this hike  becomes difficult in the last bit, it’s totally worthy. A little secret: seize the day, wake up early and watch sunrise at the Laguna de los Tres to see Fitz Roy peaks turning red—A lifetime opportunity for nature lovers.

Day 6: Patagonia hiking: from El Chalten back to El Calafate

Enjoy an early walk around town or a short hike during the morning: you can walk to El Chorrillo del Salto, 3-4 hours away from the village, to visit some nice viewpoint, specially the one called Condors Viewpoint.

Bear in mind that in the afternoon you will board your bus back to El Calafate, so you need to be back in time.The 3 hour long driving back will be a good opportunity to rest or just relax enjoying the passing landscape at your window.

Once you arrive at El Calafate, the bus will leave you at your hotel. It’s your last evening in town, your last chance to try the tender and exquisite Patagonian Lamb or a heavenly tasting Calafate ice-cream. At Calafate, food options are varied: from veggie delicacies to the best demonstration of international cuisine. You can choose a fancy  restaurant or a traditional local tavern to spend an unforgettable time.

Day 7: Travel to Chile: from El Calafate to Puerto Natales

In the morning, you’ll make your way to the bus station to start your trip to Puerto Natales—Your Chilean journey is about to begin!

Things to take into account:  it’s important to be there half hour before the departure. Most hotels are walking distance from the bus terminal, but if you prefer to take a taxi, roughly you might spend usd 5/7. It is not allowed to take any fresh food, plants, seeds, etc. from Argentina to Chile. They are very strict, and fines can be high. If you are not sure if something is allowed or not, please declare it (they will provide you with a form) and they will inform you if you can carry it or not.

After this 5 hour long trip, you will cross hundreds of kilometres of green landscapes dramatically situated between the mountains. Once you arrive to Puerto Natales the guardian Milodon -the last ground sloth that walked the Earth 5000 years ago- will wave its bronze hand at the entrance of this picturesque town. You’ll make your way to your hotel (most are few blocks away from the bus station) and have time to explore this small town, the base to visit the world famous Torres del Paine National Park.

How to enjoy your first afternoon at Puerto Natales? You can walk along the shores of Magellan Strait or just relax in one of the little cafés in town while admiring its patchworked facade of colorful houses.

At Torres del Paine National Park there are no shops, so Puerto Natales will be your last chance to buy provisions for the next day. Shops don’t provide plastic bags so you’ll have to bring your own ecological bag or make some space in your hiking one.

Day 8: Torres Del Paine tour

Today we’ll pick you up really early at your hotel to take you to the first stop of this 10 hour long adventurous trip: Milodon Cave, a mysterious natural monument where you’ll visit  three caverns and a rocky conglomerate called Silla del Diablo (Devil’s chair)—There’s obviously a spooky story behind this, you’ll learn all about…

After the first contact with these natural (and unnatural) wonders, we’ll take the road leading to Torres del Paine National Park, full of enchanting lake views (like Porteño and Toro), till the most spellbinding of them:  the Grey Lake, from which viewpoint you’ll get to the enormous Glacier Grey and make your first eye contact with the famous Paine Mountain Range. The jaw-dropping horns of Paine won’t be far away… 

You next stop will be at  Grey Lake sector: take a walk along the shore and see the peaks echoing its image in the icy waters. After this, we’ll go to a restaurant to have lunch (not included in our service).

The second part of the day, you’ll visit  Nordenskjold Lake viewpoint—get to see the emerald waters which marvel travelers of all ages, and Paine Waterfall. After driving by a sinuous road we’ll get to Amarga Lagoon area, the favorite spot to take the best pictures of Torres del Paine, before making your last stop at Sarmiento Lake viewpoint and heading back to Puerto Natales.

Say Hueque Tips

This is an incredible National Park! We made this awesome Torres del Paine Travel Guide for you not to loose any detail of this adventure.

Day 9: From Puerto Natales to Punta Arenas

Today you’ll make your way to the bus station of Puerto Natales to depart to Punta Arenas. Being there 30 minutes before the departure is the best to avoid any last minutes inconvenience. This is a 3-4 hour long trip through the steppe, crisscrossed by mountains and fjords waters. At your arrival to the bus station at Punta Arenas you’ll make your way to your hotel—you can walk or take a taxi for around 5-7 dollars.

Punta Arenas is the Chilean southernmost city, sited at the Magellanic Strait, and the leading port for Antarctic cruises and scientific research. Before the construction of the Panama Canal, Punta Arenas was the most important maritime crossroad between the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean, thus, the city grew as a commercial center surrounding by European-type buildings— It’s colourful houses, standing out from a backdrop of snow-capped mountains are a vision for sore eyes.

What to do in Punta Arenas? You can enjoy the evening by taking a 3 hour long city tour to visit the Mirador Hill and get the most gorgeous views of Magellan Strait, and the Maggiorino Borgatello Museum to see the craft master pieces made by the Onas, Yaganes and other natives of the area.

Day 10: From Punta Arenas travel to Ushuaia

In the early morning, you will make your way to the bus station to embark on a full day bus trip to Ushuaia. Take into account (as in day 7) that you’ll be crossing borders so keep in mind our previous advices.

This is a 12 hour long trip, crossing the Patagonian steppe: yellow and green grasslands, Chilean gauchos riding into the wild and grazing unworried sheeps will rolle on the square landscape of your window, till you reach the ferry crossing. It will take around 45 minutes to cross  the mythical Strait of Magellan and hit the road again to cross the border and finally enter to Tierra del Fuego Island in Argentine lands.

As the end-of-the world most famous city approaches, grazing sheeps will turn into wild guanacos and horses, snow capped mountains and evergreen woods will arise at the vicinity of Ushuaia. Once you get the “Southernmost City in the World” passport stamp, you’ll realize this intrepid journey through Patagonian remote roads was absolutely worthy.

Upon arrival in Ushuaia you will make your way to your hotel (taxis to and from the bus station should cost less than 10 dollars). Ushuaia is a small town, really easy to get around on foot. The Yamanas, its first inhabitants, called it Ushuaia which means “protected bay” in their language. Ushuaia was officially incorporated into the Republic of Argentina in 1884, and it soon became a penal colony, in order to establish a permanent Argentine settlement.

Take the afternoon to explore the town, learn of the region’s history at the Prisoner’s Museum or visit the Galleria of Fueguian History (its restaurant is also very nice!). Please, don’t forget the local gastronomy! Ushuaia is the best place to try the best seafood in Argentina.

You’ve got farther than ever in the globe…there two words you shouldn’t forget: Blake Hake and King Crab. Our Ushuaia Travel Guide will unveil the mystery.

Day 11: Ushuaia: Trekking & Canoeing in the National Park, Patagonia

Today we’ll pick you up to make a 8-10 hour long visit to Tierra del Fuego National Park, just 12 km away from the city and lying on the shore of the famous Channel sailed by Charles Darwin. Once at Ensenada Bay, you will have time to enjoy the view over the Beagle Channel before start hiking along the coast.

Six kilometers of wild trail await you where you’ll discover native flora and wild fauna. Discover the remains left by the Yamanas, the native inhabitants of the área. After this 3 hour hike, you will reach Lake Roca  where lunch will be served. After a full homemade picnic you will start the second part of this adventure.

Take your oar and plunge to start a 1 h 30 canoeing trip along Lapataia river (only available for children over 5 years old). Make all the way till Lapataia Bay,  where the Panamerican Highway and  National Route 3 ends at an awe-inspiring landscape. After discovering the unique vastness of this forbidding setting, we’ll take you back to your hotel to rest and enjoy another Patagonian evening.

Day 12: Patagonia Tours: Beagle Channel Cruise

In 1833 Charles Darwin sailed the Beagle Channel and discover something great. Today is your turn: become another explorer of this channel, primitively named Onashaga Channel since the Onas where its first sailers. You’ll make your way to the tourist pier (at downtown) to embark on a 3 hour long  boat trip  along the famous Channel (there’s a port tax of around 1-2 dollars you’ll have to pay).

You will gain panoramas of Ushuaia Bay where the city lies proudly crowned by the Martial Glacier. Unearth the diverse marine wildlife, such as cormorants (flying birds, closely related to penguins) and fur seals which frolic its time away on Alicia Island. Argentina standing at your left and Chili at your right, you’ll sail this natural border till reach the iconic end-of-the-world lighthouse, the ancient guard of the bay.

On your way back, you’ll stop at Bridges Island to walk a wildlife interpretative path, lear about Yaman’s history (the native inhabitants) and see the largest shelly deposits of the region. During the trip, you can enjoy a delicious hot chocolate with cookies or try the mate, the favorite Argentine drink. Once we get back to the port, you can make your way back to your hotel or stop by a local café or brewery to try the amber cream craft beer with a traditional Patagonian appetizer.

Say Hueque tips

Have you ever walk among penguins? If not, Ushuaia is your chance to fulfil that wanderlust dream…you can switch the Beagle Navigation to take the Magellanic Penguin Rookery tour on Martillo Island (from October to April at an additional cost) or add one day in Ushuaia to make both. At Martillo Island you will also see a very rare type of penguin only found in Antarctica: the yellow-crested penguin.

Day 13: Ushuaia: end of this Argentina & Chile adventure

Today we’ll take you to the airport where this travel adventure will come to this end. Don’t be discouraged! You can return whenever you want (we’ll welcome you with open arms) or…continue your trip towards the North area of Argentina, to the beautiful Salta region or the wine area in Mendoza.

"We found your website online and looked on TripAdvisor. The reviews on TripAdvisor were all pretty good and recent. The price was also good and easy to tailor the trip to our needs.
Great organization and for the most part, everything was on time and well planned. We knew exactly where to be and when.
Our hotel Las dunas in El Calafate was beautiful...every window overlooked Lago Argentina and it was a beautiful view.
We did a private hike in El Chalten up to 1,000 meters view of Mont Fitz Roy; our hiking guide was patient and great. While it was a tough hike, the view was spectacular. I really enjoyed perito Moreno as well.
Our guide Matias in El Chalten with walk patagonia was great!
The bus from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia was old and dirty; my seat was literally falling off. And then when we got to Rio grande, we had to switch buses and had to wait an hour and half for the next bus and bus driver. I didn’t like techni austral and it made a long day even longer.

"Thank you for your welcome back email. We arrived home yesterday afternoon. :)
It was an awesome trip! Words can't describe the beauty of Torres del Paine. I wanted to thank you for setting up our Cave tour in Puerto Natales. And I also wanted to extend our gratitude to Carolina (our guide). Carolina was very friendly and very knowledgeable.
I will keep your information, specially when we travel to Argentina. We have Cape Horn and Ushuaia, Buenos Aires in mind.
Again, thank you soooo very much.

"We were looking for a trip on Viator, a tour operator that we know worldwide. In one of the comments someone said that the tour is actually organized by Say Hueque so we decided to book directly with you! The choice was mainly done to support a local operator.

The two things that we appreciated the most of Say Hueque are the flexibility (when we asked to change one day in the program) and the fact that we had a direct contact with the operator.
Patricio supported us greatly per chat and email, and Patricia sent us very interesting info during the trip.
This personal contact has been very appreciated and made the difference compared to booking via a big agency.

The Hotel Boutique Lacolet in Punta Arenas was fantastic! The room, the bed, the nice girls at the reception, the welcome drink and the fact they anticipated the breakfast for us made our stay there very enjoyable.
We also appreciated the Hotel Las Dunas in El Calafate: it was a nice surprise at our arrival in Patagonia!
Generally speaking, all the hotels were good except for the Hostal Drake in Puerto Natales.

Our favorite days have been the ones in El Chalten, trekking in the beautiful mountains with a very nice weather.
Choosing an excursion would be very hard: we liked all! If really we have to select we would say the day on the Park Tierra del Fuego with the trekking, canoeing and the very good lunch prepared there.

The level of the guides was always very good. If we had to choose one we would say the girl from Huellas del Sur with whom we went to the Perito Moreno: she was explaining very well and taking care of the needs of all the participants.

As we said we really appreciated the fact that the relationship with the agency are very ""personal"".
Nevertheless, as you are not an operator known worldwide, if would be very good to have some kind of ""Tracking of the reservation"" to make the customer feel more safe: for example a booking reference that we can use to check the status of the trip directly online!

To conclude, we would like to say a big THANK YOU to you and Patricio: we had an amazing time in Argentina and we were thankful every day about our choice of Say Hueque. We felt that we had always the best option, compared to the other tourists around us :)

"I learned about Say Hueque through the internet – mainly trip advisor. It was an easy choice to work with you because there were not many available recommended tours. I also liked the easy communication through the online chat and that it was possible to make last minute bookings. I also consulted my sister who owns a travel agency in Singapore and she mentioned that the prices offered by you guys seem quite reasonable.
Being able to make changes to my tour at the very last minute was my highlight of traveling with you - thank you for helping to arrange! The tours were also in very small groups of just 3 people so it was more cozy. Hotel Peninsula Valdes was ok, didn't stay at other hotels.
My favorite excursion was Doradillo excursion but this was done by another tour agency (i think it's Flamenco travel as Huinca travel didn't have available tours. Huinca travel was really great in being able to help me do the last minute arrangements too). In addition to watching the whales, the guide took us to other locations which had beautiful views and we even went on a mini trek!
The initial itinerary provided to me had a tour to Punta Tombo to see the penguins, and I was only told that Punta Tombo is not available AFTER i made confirmed the tour by making the payments. The itinerary provided should have been an up-to-date one since it is customized. I had 2 options as replacement for my Punta Tombo tour (2nd day): Punta Loma and Doradillo. Initially i chose Punta Loma but on the whale watching tour during the first day, the guide told me that the sea lions are in the Valdes area and not Punta Loma this season so Punta Loma would be pretty empty.....hence i made the last minute request to change to Doradillo. This was a lucky decision for me because i met other tour customers who went to Punta Loma and told me there was no sea lions to see at all. While I' m happy that you guys managed to grant my last minute request, this information should have been made known to me when the tours were offered also to avoid disappointment.
Thanks!
