Whoever traveled as far as Patagonia – the southernmost tip of the Americas – knows how going that far may be a hassle. The weather is unpredictable. And when I say unpredictable, I mean it: having 4 seasons a day is usual. However, it doesn’t mean you should bring 3 suitcases and 5 pair of shoes with you. If you’re well prepared with some good knowledge of the region you’re traveling to, you’ll be able to take advantage of the space in your suitcase while avoiding bad surprises.
Also, Patagonia is huge. This vast area divided between Chile and Argentina is full of hidden spots so studying a map won’t be enough. Luckily, we at Cascada Expediciones produced some high quality videos answering all of your answers. Even though you may not be traveling yet (we know there is a pandemic going on), now is a great time to get ready for your upcoming trip.
Enjoy them – We hope to see you soon in Patagonia!
