Sunday saw us hopping on a bus to Tierra del Fuego National Park where we chose to do a 8.5km walk along the shores of Lago Acagami. The weather is always unpredictable in this part of the world and we started in bright sunshine negotiating, at times a rough path through lovely forest.

Wild Patagonia
I find it fascinating to read of the adventures of others in Patagonia...to feel the vibe in their words as to how the experience affected them. I thus read yours. I gotta say you have travelled through some of the most pristine wilderness areas in the World. We regard Torres del Paine as the most beautiful place in the World and my own blog was so titled. Yet when our daughter was there it was windsweep, wet and bitterly cold. The weather in Patagonia is definitely a determinate in the level of enjoyment. Yet reading your account I cannot help noticing you traveled everywhere by bus and at least in Torres del Paine regretted not hiring a car. I cannot agree more. We hired a car in Bariloche and traveled south. A friend recently did the same at our insistence and also agrees that as she did so it increased her enjoyment tenfold. Next time next wilderness place may I suggest you do so!

Wild Patagonia
You are dead right Dave it is an expensive and often difficult part of the world to get around, if I did it again I would hire a car in Bariloche or even mendoza and drive down and if possible leave the vehicle in Ushuaia and fly out.
