Lago Buenos Aires

Reviewed By Geowestpacific

Major south american lake called Lago General Carrera in Chile and Lago Buenos Aires in Argentina. Small border towns of Chile Chico and Los Antiguos separated by a river and few kilometers. Major tourist attraction in this part of Patagonia. Beautiful and unique scenery of the lake and Andes Mountains. Wild, windy and cold most of the year. Remote location with 6 to 8 hour's drive and ferry from airport in Balmaceda, Chile or 8 hour drive from Comodoro Rivadadiva in Argentina.

Chelenco Tours

Reviewed By Avner - Rehovot, Israel

When I planned my tour to this area, I wanted to see the main attractions there: Las Manos Cave (Arg), Marble Cathedrals(Chile) and Laguna San Rafael(Chile).
I found it very complicated and difficult to get to these sites on your own within a reasonable time, because of lack of public transportation in the region, lack of information on the Internet and problems in the coordination the schedules of the ferry and border crossings.
Locals recommended on Federico, manager of "Chelenco Tours" from Los Antigous (Arg) , and indeed he met all my expectations and more ...
The main advantage of him is that he has a big car and a permit to work in both sides of the border. He organize amazing tours, which exhaustive all the attractions of the region, he has experience and familiarity with all operators in the region, in Argentina and Chile, and choose the best of them.
In addition, he also has a desire, flexibility and ability to respond to customer desires and induce a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere during trips he organizes.
My wife and I recommend on him strongly.

Reviewed By Roberto Angel G - Buenos Aires, Argentina

Compramos varios productos tentadores y a buen precio. Durante la visita nos atendió una chica encantadora (no recuerdo su nombre). Lamentablemente, llegamos en un horario complicado para hacer el recorrido por el establecimiento. Aceptan tarjetas de crédito. Para volver.

Parque Nacional Patagonia

Reviewed By Roberto Angel G - Buenos Aires, Argentina

El Parque Nacional Patagonia fue creado por una ley sancionada a fines del año 2014 y promulgada en 2015. Protege una importante porción de la Meseta del Lago Buenos Aires, incluida en la ecorregión de la Estepa Patagónica y que representa una importante reserva hídrica para las localidades cercanas. Además, cuenta con lugares en los que se desarrollan programas de protección de especies endémicas, como ocurre por ejemplo, con el hermoso Macá Tobiano en la Laguna del Sello.
El año pasado, la Fundación Flora y Fauna Argentina efectivizó la donación de 34.000 hectáreas de la Estancia El Sauco para incorporarlas al parque, lo que permitirá fortalecer la proyección del Parque Nacional como área central para el desarrollo turístico de esta región junto al Sitio Patrimonio Mundial Cueva de las Manos, del cual se espera en un futuro, forme parte del mismo parque nacional... sería magnífico!
