4 wks in BsAs, then Antarctic cruise - then ???? for 2 weeks

Jump to last reply

Originally we were going to spend 3 weeks after BsAs traveling to Bariloche, Mendoza and Salta. But then we got a good deal on an Antarctic cruise which means we now have 14 nights starting from Ushuaia (mid March). Our main concern is that 2 weeks isn't enough time to properly do our original plan. Is that correct?

We could stay in the South for most of the time - visit El Calafate, maybe some of the paleontology sites in Patagonia, finish in Bariloche? Any part of that possible/practical to do with a rental car?

We've been to Southern Chile as part of a previous trip (Punta Arenas/Puerto Montt). I know it's very hard to compare but given we have seen glaciers as part of our prior cruise from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas and we will have just had 10 days in Antarctica I hesitate a bit to make El Calafate the next destination. OTOH, we are there and will return to Argentina I am sure, so we could visit the other destinations then.

Any thoughts or comments are appreciated. TIA
