Patagonia (Chili and Argentina) trip 2017
Patagonia trip 2017
Last year I also went on holiday to Chili and Argentina with the main focus on the Patagonia region of both countries.
My holiday of 26 days and two countries had this route:
Santiago – Pucon - San Martin de los Andes – Bariloche - Puerto Madryn – Ushuaia - Punta Arenas - Torres del Paine - El Calafate (glaciers) - El Chalten (Fitz Roy) - Buenos Aires.
The pics I made in this thread are with my mobile (S6 edge) and with my Nikon D3100 with a 18-200mm lens.
Santiago (de Chile)
After a long flight with KLM (with a small stop in Buenos Aires) we finaly arrive in the capital of Chili; Santiago
Middle of summer so sunny and pretty warm weather in the city itself (35 Celcius)
After droping our stuff at the hotel and little freshin up we go into the city to go for a nice place to have lunch!
We cross the river on our way to the Bellavista district.
A great area with enough bars/restaurants/shop.
After lunch on our way toward the Plaza de Armas.
Plaza de Armas.
Old and new.
In the city you can still find enough old and beautifull buildings.
At the Neptune fountain at the bottow of Cerro Santa Lucía and Hidalgo castle.
On this smaller hill, in the middle of town, you allready have some nice views of the city.
Mountains are not to far away.
Relax walking back towards the hotel. Here we are at the Torre Telefonica.
Nice little church near our hotel.
Fountain in the evening.
The day after I had a nice day for myself walking in the city and visiting sites.
At other places on this grouptrip you are really with the group to visit things and stuff but the cities I really like to walk on my own...going left, right, left again etc
Exploring at own pace and time the city.
First thing to go to this morning is South America's supertall; Costanera Center/ Gran Torre Santiago with height of 300m.
But en route looking at other buildings. Nice one this.
The streets here were pretty green must say.
The tower is coming in sight.
Bought an admission ticket below in the mall. You can go up for 10000 Chilean peso’s.
With all that glass and sun it was sometimes bit challenging taking pictures
View along the river and the San Cristobal hill.
This city is huge...
