Solar Eclipse, Chiloe & Patagonian Lakes
Experience a Total Solar Eclipse and witness the moon completely cover the sun. We begin our exploration of the Argentinean & Chilean Lakes District from Buenos Aires, Argentina’s vibrant and colourful capital. After being introduced to Argentinean culture & cuisine a short flight takes us to Bariloche, a beautiful lakeside town where we will experience a Total Solar Eclipse. Here we will get out and explore nature at its finest, as well as treat ourselves to an exquisite high tea at the luxury Llao Llao Hotel. Next, we travel across the Andes and into Chile where we will discover a land of ancient myths, unique history and culinary traditions. Discover Chiloe Island and its quaint palafitos – colourful houses built on stilts above the water – and enjoy the wit and warmth of the Chilote people whose traditions give this unique archipelago its rich character.
