Patagonia is a place of two extremes: nothingness and everything. The two are rarely fused together, but instead kept apart so that both sides are appreciated. When you plan flights to Patagonia, you’ll be fortunate enough to experience one amazing side, but incredibly blessed to see both.
Most outdoorsy types are drawn to the southernmost area, or what is sometimes known as “the end of the world.” Beyond a few colors, glaciers, and a never ending horizon, that’s what you get when you go there. But words can barely do it justice.
Up top, as you get closer to busy places like Buenos Aires, the mood changes drastically. Tango and flamenco dancing, lively music, and decadent fare appear on every road, in every establishment. Ray ban shops, reggae bars, and ex-patriots in rarest form make the northern side of Argentina much different from its counterpart. In between, (after you drive for days, of course) you’ll notice more wildlife, and as you enter the Patagonian Steppe, all you see is the landscape.
Although you might feel like you’re the only human in the world amid the unbelievable climate and natural attractions, your discovery is one that many others have attempted. Since the area is so vastly built on two extremes, it’s often best explored by a guided tour. Plan flights to Patagonia to experience the quieter, more contemplative side of Argentina.
Because southern Argentina exists in the Chilean Andes’ rain shadow, it rarely experiences some of the Pacific storms that occur on the east coast. Although heavy precipitation falls toward those slopes, when you book flights to Patagonia, you’re more apt to experience the dry winds that its plains are so well known for, and the temperate seasonal influence that characterizes its winter to typically sit in temperatures well below freezing.
Because the weather is so crazy and unpredictable no matter what time of year you travel, there’s no bad time to plan flights to Patagonia, especially if you’re in the mood for adventure.
In order to avoid the most freezing, snowy, and inclement of weather patterns, it’s easier for most to plan flights to Patagonia in the summer, when the storms are less tumultuous, and it’s easier for travelers to navigate the land.
Although winter can be a bit unbearable, adventurous travelers find cheap flights to Patagonia during the cold months, especially to seek that special thrill that certain trekking individuals crave.
Getting around here is no easy feat. Gravel roads lead to bumpy bus rides, and harrowing journeys, but they are all part of the voyage when you plan a flight to Patagonia. Since Argentina is the world’s eighth largest country, it’s a good idea to splurge on transportation. Although it might be easy to find a cheap flight to Patagonia, you won’t want to scrimp when it comes to bus rides from Buenos Aires to the southern tip.
Extreme South Tour: Welcome to the end of the world. If you’re the extremist dying to plan flights to Patagonia so you can live among the wild, then it’s absolutely impossible for you to miss this tour. It should take between four and five days, and the first two days you stay in hotels. The rest of the way, you’re camping and living off whatever nature has in store for you. Once you’ve traveled to the limit, you’ll be surrounded by blue ice, towering glaciers, and a UNESCO World Heritage site that you will never forget. Along the way, you’ll also see Beagle Channel, Perito Moreno Glacier, Lake Argentino, Lake Escondidio, Lake Fagnano, and Ushuaia.
Tango and Soccer Tour: Not all people who book flights to Patagonia are craving the solitude of nature. If you think the world “wildlife” refers to last night at the bar, then you’ll probably want to skip the camping, and instead head to where the rhythm lives. A classic city tour, the Tango and Soccer package shows you just that, and more. Dancing and playing soccer are two things that Argentines don’t take lightly – in fact, they’re quite passionate about both. Stadiums fill with fervent fans, and dance floors pack with zealous high heels waiting for a beat, night after night. The throes of sensuality in dance, and the fanatical cries of fans are two memorable experiences not to be missed in this culturally rich locale.
Glacier Tours: If looking out into the blue waters and being surrounded by immensely beautiful ice masses makes your heart stop, then the Glacier Tour is surely something to check out. Plan flights to Patagonia to be among the Perito Moreno Glacier and Lake Argentino, where the grandiose size and power of nature will take your breath away. Throughout your navigation, you’ll also be able to explore El Calafate.
As the primary gateway into Argentina, Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE) sees more than 8.5 million passengers per year. It’s 14 miles (22km) southwest of Buenos Aires, and is often referred to as Ezeiza International Airport after the suburb in which it’s located.
Terminal A handles international departures and arrivals, Terminal B is used exclusively by Aerolineas Argentinas, and Terminal C is for international departures and domestic arrivals and departures. There are no train stations, but it’s easy enough to get into the city by bus or taxi.
At the airport you can enjoy authentic Argentine cuisine or explore the large duty-free market place before relaxing in a spa or VIP lounge. Otherwise, you can always venture into the city. As the third-largest city in South America, Buenos Aires has lots to see and do. Depending on when you’re there, you might catch one of the fantastic festivals such as the Festival Internacional de Cine Independiente, the Buenos Aires Tango Festival, the South American Music Conference or La Rural.
