This is a photograph of the 'Chile & Argentina trip' article!

How to summarize 3 weeks and more than 2000 photos of a wonderful trip? Best of the best.

Here are the trip parts:

Two days in Argentina #

Just arrived in south of Chile, we crossed the Chile border to go in El Calafate. Our plan was to walk on the Perito Moreno Glacier in the Los Glaciares National Park.

Here are some Argentina landscapes...

Patagonia #

We were based in Puerto Natales, the last city before the wild Chilean Patagonia, where we left our stuff we didn't need for the W circuit in Torres Del Paine. We rent camping utilities and left the city for 4 awesome cold days!

Let's go:

The first day was good but the second day was already a bit more difficult because of the VERY cold night.

This was on our way to the Grey Glacier:

The second night was very tough because of rats in the Camp Italiano. We actually only slept 2 hours that night.

The third day:

We finally didn't do the last branch of the W because the weather was gracefully degrading and we were totally exhausted.

No regrets, even exhausted, we had fun!

Villarrica volcano #

After something like 14h of bus from Puerto Montt, we arrived in the fabulous town of Pucón and climbed the Villarrica volcano (2847m):

The same day, meanwhile we were in the natural spa, we could see the light of the volcano lava in the night far away, was impressive especially because we were there a few hours ago.

Valparaíso #

We finally finished our trip in the city of Valparaíso where we met friends there.

This 3 weeks trip was really amazing and I will always be thankful to the person who invited me. The shared experience was intense and worthy, I wish to have new opportunities to enjoy such ventures in the future.
