Buenos Aires + only 1 Patagonia location

Jump to last reply

How to decide?! I will be traveling to Argentina for the first time for my honeymoon in late November. We only have time for an 8 day vacation. Since we've never been to BA, we feel we must take some time there to relax and enjoy the city, the food, the wine. I'm thinking we will spend 3 days in a very nice hotel in Palermo - laid back, relaxing. That really only leaves time for one Patagonia destination. We are looking for an unforgettable experience, something totally new (for both of us). We enjoy hiking but are not experienced climbers. We enjoy wildlife. We love food. We enjoy simply experiencing different cultures - I find I like the smaller towns and villages in a foreign country; large western cities all feel the same. This will be my first 'adventure' with my new husband. I don't want to wear him out by packing too much into one trip, and flying (even a short flight) seems to kill the day.

I've never been ice trekking, and El Chalten and the Moreno glacier look stunning. I've only seen glaciers from a distance in the Swiss Alps. Bariloche and the lake region also look amazing. I think I've narrowed it to these two. We want different, amazing, with the ability to relax as well. It seems both of these may fit the bill.
