You can combine Patagonia with a short stay in Buenos Aires. You might enjoy flying to Bariloche then making the crossing to Puerto Varas. After that, continue to Santiago then flying back to Colombia.

Another option is to fly to Mendoza for wine tasting then taking the bus over the Andes to Santiago then continue to Colombia.

It's possible to go to Uruguay for a daytrip from BA.

I was going to suggest the same Itinerary, Buenos Aires, Bariloche (Cruce de Lagos to Puerto Varas) then Santiago then back home.

I also recommend Iguazu Falls, Mendoza (wine country).

Good luck!

Hello spyce, if you visit Buenos Aires for the second time, Uruguay is a good option, either for a day trip or a longer stay. You have the chance to cross the widest river of the world (Rio de la Plata) and reach Colonia for the day, or stay in a colonial style 4* hotel in the historical district (UNESCO´S World Heritage Site) or travel along the coast to the desembankment in the Atlantic, Punta del Este, see the country side with wine cellars, estancias, cheese producers, marmelade farms, etc.

October is a lovely season to do all that!

You can fly between Calafate and Bariloche directly without going back to BA with Aerolineas.

The Perito Moreno glacier is a must see if you have the time.

Hello Spyce,

I think that Brasil would also be a great place to go... I would do:

Argentina: BA, estancias, city tour, etc

Uruguay: there is a tour for 2 days taking the ferry Buquebus.

Iguazu: you can go there and then go to Brasil.

Take a flight and go to Rio! - great destination.

October is a great time to visit these places.

I think you can do the 4 destinations in 10 days.

Good luck!

Laura
