The natural marvels of South America are, quite possibly, the main tourist attraction in our continent. Who hasn’t dreamed of climbing the Patagonian glaciers, exploring the trails of the Amazon and discovering the paradisiacal beaches that are hidden in this part of the world? Living these unequaled experiences through ecological tours offers travelers a truly deep immersion in these spectacular sites, while preserving every place in the hopes that our planet won’t continue suffering from excessive pollution.

Few days away from celebrating the International Mother Earth Day (April 22), we’ve chosen the best ecological tours in Colombia, Argentina, Chile and the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro to encourage travelers from around the world to choose these sorts of excursions during your trips, and thus join the initiative of hundreds of international organizations that work tirelessly to reach the “right balance between the economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations [promoting]harmony with nature and the planet”.

Ecological Tours in Colombia

Colombia stands out as the South American destination that, seeking its tourist identity, has made an important commitment in the promotion of ecological initiatives. In its main cities, replete with a charming and diverse natural exuberance, there are eco tours for all preferences, ages and budgets.

In the surroundings of Bogotá, the Colombian capital, there are two emblematic trails that no traveler should miss: the East Hills Hiking Tour and Hike to La Chorrera Waterfall. The level of difficulty for both activities is intermediate and it’s recommended to carry out the activity after 2 days of having landed in Bogota to get properly adjusted to the altitude of the city.

In Medellín you can also take an Ecological Hike through the Andean forest, but the best outdoor activity in the city is to spend the day at the Arví Ecotourism Park. It’s a place for adventure; where you can partake in ziplining, water bikes, cycle-mountaineering, horseback riding and hiking.

For lovers of both the sea and ecological tourism, the Eco-Adventure in San Andrés is ideal: it’s a kayak tour and navigation through the mangroves and swamps that offer natural protection for the island’s ecosystem. Those who prefer the mountains should take advantage of the Eco Tours in the Coffee Triangle, to discover unique places such as the Botanical Garden and the Butterfly Garden of Quindío, the Cocora Valley, the streets of Salento and other small towns in the region.

Ecotourism in the Amazon is the king of ecological activities in Colombia: navigate the Amazon River, the largest in the world; exploring through the jungle and learning from the indigenous communities how to protect the nature against the pollution of man are just three of the most fascinating experiences that tourists can experience here.


Ecological Tours in Argentina

Much of the natural beauty of Argentina has been safeguarded for decades by the National Government and regional governments, so their tourism activity aligns with preservation requirement. Patagonia is an example of this, therefore, all of the animal sighting activities in Puerto Madryn and Ushuaia are designed to take care of the habitat of the animals that reside in this part of the world, such as southern whales, penguins, sea ​​lions and more than one hundred species of birds.

Those who are looking for hiking should know that if there was ever a country for walking for hours and discovering unimaginable places, that would be Argentina. Especially its mountainous areas in Bariloche, El Calafate, Ushuaia and Mendoza which provide tourists seeking to get in touch with nature with the opportunity to do so in a big way. You can hike through glaciers, lagoons and extensive valleys.

In Mendoza there is also an interesting project for those looking for ecotours in Argentina. This is the Sustainable Tour in Valle de Uco, which consists of discovering how the peasant communities develop their own sustainable projects, driven mainly by women. They have a farm of organic products, a winery of handcrafted wines and a craft workshop Huarpe; a native town dedicated to creating beautiful daily use objects with materials from the area.

In the north of Argentina, especially in Salta and Jujuy, almost all the tourist offered is created to take care of the environment. The Going Around The Heights Tour is one of the classic activities, which includes Quebrada del Toro, Santa Rosa de Tastil, San Antonio de los Cobres and Salinas Grandes, Purmamarca and Cerro de los Siete Colores. The more adventurous have the option of the Bike Tour through the Jungle, an experience for raising adrenaline and, most important of all, it’s eco friendly.

In the province of Misiones stands the spectacular Iguazu Falls National Park, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. It is one of the most requested ecotours in Argentina, which can also be seen from the Brazilian side. Another lesser known option, but equally interesting to discover in Iguazu, is the Visit to the Guaraní Community, a two-hour tour of the missionary forests that surround the falls and that have been inhabited by the native people.

Buenos Aires, the Argentine capital, also has eco friendly tours for visiting the classic tourist places in the city. You can choose between bike tours or walking tours through Palermo and Microcentro. It is also an option to complement an ecological excursion with Argentine culture and politics through the Political Tour: Traces of Buenos Aires.


Ecological Tours in Chile

Like Argentine side, Chilean Patagonia is a protected area, where ecological tours abound. The Magdalena Island Walk with Penguins is the favorite among tourists. From April to September you can enjoy a fascinating show of 150,000 penguins, southern gulls and sea lions that fill the island and enjoy the comfort of the perfectly preserved habitat.

Santiago de Chile, like most of the South American capitals, can also be traveled by bike. The offer ranges from a day tour through the historic center and a night tour around the best of the city, to a wine tour by bike through the Maipo Valley. In northern Chile, specifically in San Pedro de Atacama, eco tours are also the order of the day. You can explore the desert by bike or walking, discover the high plateau lagoons and the famous geysers, and enjoy the interesting Astronomy Tour in San Pedro de Atacama to learn about the constellations and how to recognize the main stars.

Ecological Tours in Rio de Janeiro

The Marvelous City is a green destination and one of the best ways to explore it’s by walking and cycling. The Best of Rio de Janeiro on Foot is one of the favorite walks among tourists: it’s a 7-hour excursion in which you visit the Christ the Redeemer and the Pan de Azúcar mountain, and important historical sites such as Praça XV, Largo da Carioca, Arcos da Lapa, Escadaria Selarón and the Municipal Theater.

The most fun activity to do on bike is the Parks and Beaches Tour, which starts on the beaches of Ipanema and continues towards the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon; you will also go through Urca and take a walk under the Sugar Loaf. The tour ends with a visit to Vermelha and Copacabana beach, one of the best known in the world.

Travelers wishing to test their physical condition can choose hiking tours to climb the Sugar Loaf or Pedra da Gávea, or to walk to Corcovado and Ilha Grande. The reward of seeing the great expanse of the Marvelous City is worth the effort.

Ecological tours in South America aren’t limited to just these countries. Uruguay, for example, has excursions in Punta del Este, Montevideo and Colonia that take place in private; one of the most famous being the Sierra de las Ánimas Walk, chosen by Daytours4u as one of the 6 energetic destinations in South America America to start 2018.

At Daytours4u we celebrate the International Mother Earth Day today and every day, promoting responsible tourism to ensure harmonious coexistence with our planet. Let’s preserve our natural beauties and enjoy all the charm that South America offers us!

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” Millions of people apply this Albert Einstein quote literally. Some can’t even stop pedaling during their holidays. As a result, bike tours are becoming more and more popular, especially for tourists travelling to South America.

Cycling is so popular that since 1985 on April, 19th, we celebrate Bicycle Day throughout the world in order to promote the use of the most ecological and health-benefiting mode of transport.

But why on April 19th? There are two versions of the creation of Bicycle day. The first one states that this day is celebrated in honor of Albert Hofmann, the Swiss chemist who invented LSD. On April 19th 1943, he experimented his substance on himself in order to check the effects as he was riding his bike back home. The second version claims that this celebration was born in 1985 in Los Angeles, in the United States, when a group of cyclists organised a friendly race in the centre of the city and called the event the “bicycle day”.

If travelling in South America, you must include a bike tour in order to get your blood pumping and create special memories of your South American adventure. In this article you will discover our selection of the best bike tours in the continent so that you can really take advantage of its most beautiful landscapes.

Salento is a lovely village located in the Colombia Coffee Triangle. Cycling through the Andean tropical forests and the huge coffee plantations is an amazing adventure and one of the many unmissable activities in Salento. You can rent a bike in the village and begin the visit on your own, but since the terrain is mostly mountainous, we recommend the Bike Tour in Salento. You should be in a good physical shape and pay close attention to the guide’s instructions to take this tour.

Travelling tip: For those of you who stay in Colombia for only a few days or do not plan to visit the Coffee Triangle, you can enjoy the cycle lanes of Bogota, opened from 7 am to 2 pm every Sunday and holiday of the year.

On April the 17th, 1830, the Malbec grapes were brought to Argentina from France. That initiative was such a success that nowadays Argentina is the biggest Malbec producer in the world and Argentinian Malbec is recognized around the world. This is why on April the 17th everyone celebrates Malbec World Day.

Travelling to Argentina without tasting this renowned wine is as unacceptable as not eating a good old asado or not going to a tango show. This article will allow you to fully take advantage of your experience in Argentina and will let you know all you need to about Malbec.

Where do they produce the Argentinian Malbec?

The main viticultural region of Argentina is Mendoza – Maipú, the Uco Valley and Luján de Cuyo form the Mendoza Wine Route. However, you can also find these grapes in La Rioja, Patagonia, Salta and San Juan. The Pyros Barrel Selected Malbec 2014 was produced in San Juan – it was chosen as the best wine produced outside of European vineyards at the Japan Wine Challenge 2016.

Joaquín Alberdi, wine expert and owner of a wine cellar named after himself explains that “Malbec is the only continental wine in the world, since it is produced without any maritime influence”. That particularity, says Alberdi, is why the Argentinian Malbec became a symbol of the country and why every tourist travelling to Argentina “should try Malbec from different regions to experiment the difference in flavours and textures as the altitude changes”.

How is the Argentinian Malbec?

Malbec is a dark and intense wine. Its aromas will leave a delicious taste of cherry, strawberry, plum, raisin and even maybe red pepper in your mouth. Besides, this sweet, hot and soft wine will overwhelm your palate with flavours. If the wine has aged in oak barrels, you will also notice coffee, chocolate, and vanilla notes.

The ideal plates to uncork a good Argentinian Malbec are red meat, hard cheese or pasta with tomato sauce.

Recommended Argentinian Malbec wine cellars

“Nowadays, all the Malbec of Argentina are of the highest quality”, declares Joaquín Alberdi. Therefore, making a list of the best cellars is a complicated task. However, you can find below four interesting options to suit all tastes and budgets.

1. Bodega Domingo Molina

This is a family cellar, located in North Yacochuy – the Calchaquí Valley, Salta province. The experienced Osvaldo brothers, Gabriel and Rafael Domingo run it. Since the cellar is 2 kilometers below sea level, at the foothills of the Andes, they can produce an unique Malbec.

What to bring home: Finca Domingo Malbec (About $225 Argentine pesos)

2. Bodega Viña 1924

This cellar is located in the Vistalba Valley in Mendoza. This is one of the oldest vineyards in the area. The grapes grow between the Uco Valley and Luján de Cuyo, a pretty good location since it is 980 meters above sea level. Their wines are rather fruity and complex and if the consumer pays close attention, they will notice a taste of vanilla or cinnamon.

What to bring home: Malbec de Ángeles (About $385 Argentine pesos)

3. Bodega Altocedro:

Altocedro and its great range of wines


The artisanal wines of this cellar are produced in La Consulta, a viticultural region of Mendoza. This is a unique location for grape production thanks to its altitude, sun exposure, average temperature and also the water from the natural springs, ideal for irrigation of the grapes. In 2001, the first Altocedra wine range was produced and since then it has become increasingly well-known not only in Argentina but across the globe as well.

What to bring home: Altocedro Reserva Malbec (about $700 Argentina pesos)

4. Bodega Matervini:

Matervini was born out of the hard work of Santiago Achával and Roberto Cipresso. “A great question made us create this wine in 2008: “what comes after Malbec?”. Our answer then was: “More Malbec, from other places and with a different personality!”, state the entrepreneurs. Their wines are from the Uco Valley, Las Heras, Cafayate and Luján de Cuyo.

What to bring home: Alteza (about $1200 Argentine peso)

 Where to do wine tasting in Argentina?

If you want to bring a souvenir from Argentina, Malbec definitely is a great choice. Enjoy your trip to Argentina and taste a whole range of wines with a professional oenologist so that you can put one of your favourite bottles of Malbec in your suitcase.

If you travel to Mendoza, the viticultural region par excellence, be sure to book the Malbec Wine Experience Tour and visit three extraordinary cellars. You can also discover the main areas of the Mendoza Wine Route. In Salta, you cannot miss the High Altitude Wine Tour in Cafayate – the specialty there is the torrontés, a unique grape variety. If you only stay in Buenos Aires, do not worry! You can go to the Joaquín Alberdi Wine Tasting for a most complete wine tasting experience.

Discover all you can about the Argentinian traditions and live an authentic South American experience. Be sure to include Malbec and tango in your travel itinerary. If you want to know what are the other activities you cannot miss during your trip to Argentina, contact the expert team at  Argentina4u and Bsas4u to clarify any doubt you may have.

The cultural diversity in Argentina is one of the most interesting aspects of this South American country. Buenos Aires, its capital, is a city full of museums, theaters, and festivals of all kinds and even hosts open-air exhibitions with the most diverse artistic expressions. Music in Argentina is probably the best example of this diversity and in our article we cover the southern rhythms that every traveler must experience to fully enjoy the charm of this vast country.

The Tango is the most well-known musical rhythm of Argentina

National rock

In the mid-1950s, American rock began to penetrate the minds of young Argentine musicians. Some groups started making covers of songs from international bands, but in the 1960s the “national rock” was born, with its own lyrics and styles, which had an enormous influence on the rest of the Latin American youth. Since then, dozens of groups and names have emerged such as Luis Alberto Spinetta, Charly Garcia, Fito Páez, Pedro Aznar, Patricio Rey and his Redonditos de Ricota, and Gustavo Cerati with Soda Stereo, one of the most important groups in Argentina and Latin America.

Rock music runs through the veins of Argentina, the only country that developed a national rock culture in the region and that gained popularity in the 1980s. So make the most your trip and have your senses ready to enjoy this musical rhythm. In Buenos Aires, there are dozens of bars that pay homage to national rock, among them Rodney Bar (Rodney 400 y Jorge Newbery, Chacarita neighborhood), Mitos Argentinos (Humberto Primo 489, San Telmo neighborhood), El Emergente (it has two venues: Acuña Figueroa 1030, in Almagro, and Gallo 333, in Abasto), Makena Cantina Club (Fitz Roy 1519, Palermo) and Niceto Club (it has two venues: Niceto Vega 5510 y Humboldt 1358, in Palermo).


Argentine Tango

It’s impossible to bring up tango and not think of Argentina. The sound of the bandoneon and the spectacle that results from this dance characterized by its seductive movements are irresistable. The tango comes from multiple musical rhythms that began in the Río de la Plata and merged with the music of native people. There is a bit of influence from Spain, Italy, the Middle East and Africa, so it’s the best demonstration of the importance of immigration to Argentina.

Born in the 19th century, it’s become the favorite dance in the most popular neighborhoods in Buenos Aires and Montevideo. It was declared as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by Unesco and is one of the cultural activities in Argentina that no traveler should miss. There are outdoor tango shows in Buenos Aires tourist areas such as Florida Street and Dorrego Square in San Telmo. The tango shows in the famous and traditional tango houses in the city offer an unparalleled experience and there are options to suit all preferences and budgets.

Reserve your tango show in Buenos Aires


Folklore

The main musical rhythms of Argentine folklore were born in the countryside and came into the big cities during the 30’s and 40’s. By 1950 it had become the most popular musical genre for Argentines along with tango. Among the most important genres are chacarera, payada, the milonga campera, malambo, the murga porteña, chamamé and zamba.

The City of Buenos Aires hosts multiple cultural spaces where you can dance to all these rhythms and every Saturday and Sunday there are dance performances in fairs and parks. The San Telmo and Mataderos Markets on Sundays offer a very authentic gaucho show, and those who prefer something more lively can take a Buenos Aires Milongas Tour and enjoy the show with professional dancers.

Travel tip: The estancias located in the outskirts of Buenos Aires also have a space dedicated to Argentine folklore, so it’s an excellent option for spending a day in the country and discovering the most outstanding aspects of Argentine culture.

Contact our team of Bsas4u experts and request a customized folklore tour

The San Telmo and Mataderos Markets on Sundays offer a very authentic gaucho show

Cumbia

Cumbia was already around in the 1970s but at the end of the 20th century, in the midst of the economic crisis in South America, the famous cumbia villera was born, a side of this musical rhythm starring musicians from the poorest sectors of Buenos Aires society. Their songs spoke of the violence and the precariousness experienced in the towns of Buenos Aires at the end of 1990 until about 2010. Nowadays, cumbia is listened and danced to in all sectors of society and its lyrics have also diversified.

Reserve our Cumbia Tour in Buenos Aires online and discover the details of this music genre while dancing at the nightclubs throughout the city.

Nightclubs in Buenos Aires have their moment of Argentine cumbia; you can not lose this!

Argentine music is inexhaustible and apart from these rhythms that are part of its cultural essence, the country has wide and varied options for concerts and festivals. Lovers of classical music can’t miss the shows at the Teatro Colón, both those that take place in its auditoriums and those that are organized outdoors in the plaza that faces the theater.

Jazz fans should note the week of November 14 to 19, 2018 in their calendars; the days of the International Jazz Festival in Buenos Aires. Throughout the year you can also enjoy live shows at several jazz clubs such as: Notorious (Av. Callao 966, near the Microcentro), Virasoro (Guatemala 4328, Palermo) or Thelonious (Nicaragua 5549, Palermo).

Another noteworthy event is the Emerging City Festival, which this year will be held from September 19 to 23, 2018, where music, film, art, fashion, comedy, poetry, dance and street art bring the Recoleta Cultural Center to life. Schedule your festivals and live the best travel experiences in Buenos Aires and every province of Argentina.

Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival is one of the biggest events in the world and an exhilarating experience that we should all have at least once in a lifetime. Watching from the stands of the Sambadrome while the Samba Schools parade is an incomparable sensation, but viewing this same show from a VIP Suite is, without a doubt, on another level. Experience Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival from the inside and start planning your vacation to the Marvelous City now.


VIP Suite at Rio Carnival

Rio Carnival is organized into several parades that take place on different days. What distinguishes one parade from another are the participating samba schools. Regardless of the date you choose to be part of this fantastic experience, the VIP suite option will ensure an unforgettable night.

If you book the VIP Suite for the Serie A Schools Parade that participate on Friday and Saturday prior to the official Monday and Tuesday of the Carnival; you’ll see the academies that prepare with great determination to move up in category each year and become champions in the carnival’s following editions. If you select a VIP Suite for the Parade of the Special Group you’ll enjoy a show from the most popular and traditional samba schools, which take place on the Sunday and Monday of Carnival.

The pre-carnival

The Rio Carnival Experience from a VIP Suite begins before the opening of the Sambadrome. If you’re going to see the Serie A Schools, you’ll first need to pick up your tickets and your T-shirt at the meeting point established by the operator or pay an additional fee to have both items brought to the hotel where you’re staying. Then, you’ll go to the address determined by the operator for the second phase of the day: the decoration of your shirt. You’ll be able to customize the design to suit your style and make it as dazzling as you want. The recommended arrival time for this activity is at noon because there are usually a lot of people waiting in long lines to decorate their outfits.

If you selected a Carnival day to see the Special Group, an exclusive transfer service is included that will pick you up at your hotel and take you to the place where makeup and decorating the T-shirts are done. Professional stylists will make you shine and there is even a massage area so you can enjoy the experience completely relaxed. At the same location you’ll receive your credential that is similar to an identity document which you’ll bring to the Sambadrome.

The Sambadrome and VIP Boxes Experience

The third phase for travelers who reserve the Serie A Schools is to decide how to get to the Sambadrome that opens the doors at 8:00 p.m. You can request an Uber, pay for a taxi or book an additional transfer that picks you up from the hotel and takes you to whichever entrance corresponds to your ticket.

TIP: Be sure to check and see if your assigned section is odd or even so that the driver can leave you at the correct entrance. After they check your ticket, which you should keep visible throughout the night along with your decorated shirt, you’ll head to the VIP box to enjoy the show. Those who book to see the Special Group will have the transfer from the place where they do the decoration and makeup to the Sambadrome included.

The VIP box, both for Schools A Series and for the Special Group, is composed of three floors filled with the best carioca vibes, air conditioning, and WIFI so you can share all your experience through social networks in real time. On the first floor there is a parade nearby, a live music group to dance all night long and there are also dispensers of all kinds of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks that don’t run out, so you’ll be able to consume as much as you want until closing. There’ll be promoters and travel guides present to assist you in whatever you need.

On each floor of the VIP Suite there is an area and balconies to watch the entire parade / Photo: Daytours4u

The second floor is the buffet: pasta with delicious sauces, chicken stroganoff, hotdogs, tropical fruits, ice cream and other desserts served until 2:00 a.m. This area has more of a restaurant vibe but also has a balcony where you can sit and watch the parade.

The third floor, on the other hand, is where you’ll find sushi being served throughout the night. There’s also an area for dancing here but, unlike on the first floor, there’s a DJ with a selection of electronic music. Don’t worry about missing the parade of the samba schools, because there is also a balcony here to enjoy the show. The party ends at approximately 6:00 a.m. when the last school parades. The exit is organized and safe, as well as perfectly identified.

Have one of the most incredible nights of your life with VIP Suite Tickets to the Rio de Janeiro Carnival. Book your tours and activities in Rio de Janeiro with Rdj4u online and clear up any doubts about the Wonderful City with our team of experts.

In recent years, one of the destinations most valued by national and international tourists who vacation in Chile is in the Los Ríos Region. We’re talking about the Route of the Seven Lakes, a circuit of towns located on the banks of different lakes that stand out for their natural beauty, the lushness of their landscapes, their friendly people and their traditions. 750 kilometers south of Santiago, one of the qualities of this route is the proximity between the towns, so the tourist can choose to settle in one of them and from there visit the others by bus or even rent a car.

The Route of the Seven Lakes is a circuit of towns that stand out for their natural beauty / Photo: Daytours4u

How to get to the Route of the Seven Lakes

You can take a direct bus to Villarrica in the South Terminal or travel by car following Route 5 to Freire and then turn left on route 199. You can also take a direct plane to Temuco and from there take a local bus to any of the towns along this circuit.

If you want to go by car from Argentina to Chile you can enter from San Martin de los Andes following route 48 to the Hua Hum border crossing, where you will reach the town of Pirihueico; from where the car must get on a ferry that will take you to Puerto Fuy, on the north shore of Lake Pirihueico.


Villarrica

If we had to recommend one place to “set up camp” along the Route of the Seven Lakes, that would be Villarrica. It’s a beautiful city and very well maintained. In addition, it’s the city (perhaps with the exception of Pucón) that has the most varied and sophisticated range of services and products, and this makes it an international destination.

To give just a few examples, here you will find exquisite ice cream parlors, tea houses and shops with regional and organic products, as well as adventure tourism packages that include night expeditions to the Villarrica Volcano, hiking, horseback rides that end at waterfalls hidden in the middle of nature, ziplining, mountain bike circuits and others.

Travel tip: Along many of the streets that overlook the lake, including the waterfront, there are cozy cabins and hostels at a great price, some of which include breakfast. On average, a double room costs around USD 50 per night, while a cabin (with capacity for five people) costs around USD 85 per night, which is convenient if you’re travelling in a group.

Pucón

Pucón is another favorite destination on the Route of the Seven Lakes, especially for young people. Its at the opposite end of Villarrica, on the shores of the lake with the same name and literally at the foot of the volcano, so that the tourist who decides to go in winter will be awed by the visual spectacle of the large snow-covered massif.

Visiting Pucón in winter is synonymous with snowboarding and skiing, since the Pucón Ski Center is located twenty minutes from the city. However, if you prefer to come in summer, it is also very close to the Huerquehue National Park, which corresponds to an important reserve of native flora and fauna, and is also just minutes from the Trancura River, an ideal place to try out rafting and hydrospeed. Not to mention all the options for entertainment that exist in the same city, such as breweries and nightclubs to dance until dawn.

Travel tip: Staying and eating in Pucón is more expensive than in other towns in the area, which is why it is also considered a more exclusive destination. A cabin can cost around 100 USD per night. If you’re a couple, our recommendation is to rent a hotel room, as some offer promotions for three nights for 280 USD with breakfast included.


Coñaripe

Coñaripe is a somewhat rustic town; not fully conditioned to meet the needs of demanding tourists. However, it has a great attraction that makes it a must for anyone who travels the route outlined here. We’re referring to its spectacular beach on the shores of Lake Calafquen. Bathing in these waters is a difficult experience to describe, since a few kilometers from the shore there are huge green mountains that “embrace” the lake, producing an enveloping visual effect and the sensation of being suspended at a great height . A truly moving experience.

If your plan is to continue on to Pucón after leaving the lake, then we recommend that you make a stop along the way and visit the famous Geometric Baths, a complex of various pools carved into the rock of a ravine twenty minutes from Coñaripe towards the northwest and surrounded by forests. Take advantage of its more than seventy tributaries of hot springs that arise naturally at 80 degrees Celsius. If you want to relax and disconnect from everything, then this is the right place for you.

Lican Ray

Lican Ray is a small town of two thousand five hundred people located on the north shore of Lake Calafquen that subsists mainly thanks to the active tourism. It stands out mainly for its wide beach and warm waters in the summer season. Here there are also traditional markets where tourists can buy regional products of all kinds; mainly jams, textiles, traditional liquors, wood crafts and natural ointments based on native herbs, among others.

The Mapuche national park is also located in Lican Ray, run by the indigenous community itself and open to the public. There the interested tourist can learn many things related to the culture of this unique town, try typical foods and take guided tours.


Caburgua

Lake Caburgua is one of the main destinations for the vacationers from the area, who’re attracted by the spectacular landscapes that surround it and by its warm transparent waters, ideal for bathing and practicing water sports.

Travel tip: There aren’t many food options in the vicinity of the lake. If you come from Pucón or Villarrica, you may want to put together your own lunch and some snacks before leaving. If you come by car, it’s recommended to arrive early, as the (private) parking lots fill up quickly.

Panguipulli

Panguipulli, like Villarrica, is a good place to “set up base”, since you can visit several nearby towns from there and, being a city, it has services of all kinds. It is, of course, on the shores of Lake Panguipulli. If we had to recommend just one thing to do here, we would definitely tell you to visit the Casona Cultural de Panguipulli, an old restored Swiss-style mansion that was formerly a boarding school for Capuchin monks and today is an architectural heritage site in this area. It’s an ideal place to have coffee or tea, taste the exquisite pastries of southern Chile, attend exhibitions, plays or just sit and read.


Neltume

Neltume is a small town with simple houses and very few shops. Why do we recommend it here? Because of the incomparable beauty of the Fuy River that runs parallel to the town on the south side and that’s worth seeing as it has the most crystalline waters that can be found in the area. In addition, the waters are calm and suitable for bathing on this part of the river, although very cold because of its proximity to the mountains. Further on, in the direction of Huilo Huilo, those same waters are the protagonists of spectacular jumps that are worth viewing from a distance and with safety precautions.

Further north, in the same area, the adventurous tourist will find the Neltume River, a short watercourse just one kilometer long, an ideal extension for rating and fly fishing.


Huilo Huilo

Huilo Huilo is a biological reserve with international fame and a reference for sustainable tourism in Chile. It has an extensive network of perfectly marked and interconnected trails that allow tourists to get into nature and visit various geographical and architectural attractions.

Within its geographical milestones the “jumps” or waterfalls are highlighted, which make an impact with their beauty and power. There are also endless elements of the evergreen forest and the “Valdivian jungle” that can be experienced to their fullest with a guide, who can assist you with many activities such as learning about the native flora, bird watching, trying out different adventure sports and excursions to the top of the Mocho Coshuenco Volcano.

The most surprising of Huilo Huilo are the impressive waterfalls and its beautiful “Valdivian jungle” / Photo: Brian Gray

As for the architectural attractions, Huilo Huilo stands out for its good taste and for the intelligence invested in the design of the accommodations, which include a wide range for all tastes and price ranges, from camping areas where the visitor can set up his tent, shared cabins for backpackers, private cabins and lodges. The latter deserve its own mention, since their structures are true works of art that merge with the natural landscape, as can be seen with the famous Montaña Mágica Lodge.

As if all this weren’t enough, in the heart of the reserve, on the side of the road, Petermann Craft Brewery is located, where one of the best beers in the area is produced thanks to the unparalleled purity of the glacial waters used to make it.

Travel tip: This reserve is very large, so you will need at least three days to hike all of its trails and take a couple of excursions.


The Route of the Seven Lakes is one of the destinations that you should not miss in your travel itinerary in South America. Get in touch with our team of experts and book all your excursions in Chile with Chile4utours.

The passion for football in Buenos Aires, far from being a cliché, is almost a scientific fact. Even the less intense Argentine fans have the jersey (T-shirt) for their team and if they pass in front of a cafe or bar where they are broadcasting a game they will most definitely stop in the middle of the path with their eyes fixed on the television and may even enter the place to enjoy the rest of the game.

To think of Argentina is to think about tango … and vice versa. Despite the large number of places and attractions that make this South American nation one of the favorite destinations for tourists of the world, tango is its most prominent artistic emblem and the city of Buenos Aires has been responsible for preserving this legacy through its charming tango houses. This article describes the most authentic tango shows in the Argentine capital, which preserve the tradition of this popular dance from the Río de la Plata.


1. EL VIEJO ALMACÉN
