It’s important to organize your itinerary properly ahead of your Patagonia photo tour. Patagonia is a vast and large section of South America where the regional airports are small and have limited connection service. Patagonia’s airport options are a crucial part of your trip since ticket availability might fluctuate during different parts of the year.
Most of the Patagonia airports don’t receive international routes. Most of them behave as regional community hubs. International travelers first arrive to Chile and Argentina’s international airports prior to their connecting flight to a Patagonia airport.
Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires, has three airports with daily connection flights to most of Patagonia; these are: Ezeiza – Ministro Pistarini (international), Aeroparque – Jorge Newbery (domestic), El Palomar (new low cost domestic airport). Chile’s capital, Santiago, has also daily flights to most of the Patagonia airports on the Chilean side.
Bariloche, Rio Negro, Argentina
Teniente Luis Candelaria Airport (Patagonia Airport Code: BRC)
This is perhaps the biggest Patagonia airport in the region due to the importance of San Carlos de Bariloche as a tourist destination inside Argentina. The Airport is served by all the major airlines: Aerolineas Argentinas, LATAM, Flybondi (low cost airline that only flies from El Palomar airport), Andes and Austral. A round trip from Buenos Aires might cost an average of $250 to $300 american dollars depending on season’s demand and the time of year. Read more “Patagonia Airport: How to get to Patagonia”
The Cueva de las Manos site in Patagonia resembles the ancient paintings found at the Lascaux cavern in Southern France. The indigenous population that inhabited Patagonia left their negative hand impressions on this cave as a testament for future generations.
The Cave is located at the province of Santa Cruz, Argentina and relatively close to both the city of El Calafate and the Perito Moreno glacier.
The art painting dates from 13,000 to 9,000 years ago and early artwork has been carbon-dated to ca. 9300 BP (about 7300 BC). We believe that the site was last inhabited around 700 AD, possibly by ancestors of the Tehuelche people. Read more “Patagonia Location: Cueva de las Manos”

Travel photography is an exciting thing. As a photographer, I always look forward to my next travel adventure as soon as I get back home from a recent trip.
Here are some 5 ideas to have in mind while you prepare for any travel photography:
Travel Photography Smart Gear Checklist:
- When on the go, it’s very important to have comfortable access to your equipment. That can be anything from camera bodies, lenses, filters, batteries, etc. Long are gone the days of the classic photographer camera bags!
There are many new alternatives such as the photography back-packs, messenger bags – and my all time favorite – sling photo bags. I like them best since they force me to pack light. The added advantage is the extra support for changing lenses and filters. Beware, always make absolutely sure you close those zippers tightly. I had lenses drop and damaged because of unzipped pockets.
Quebrada de Humahuaca an UNESCO Heritage Site

Cafayate at night provides a very picturesque postcard. The principal plaza serves, as in many small towns, both as the main attraction and the classic point of gathering for locals and tourist. Proof of this can be observed by the vibrant art and restaurant scene around its perimeter and the constant vibrations produced by the influx of people coming and going to the area.
You can find the, now famous, emapanada salteña almost at every culinary stop. This has become a staple on the northern cuisine. Expect also to discover many small wine shops with the most delicated wine bottles produced in the region.
Due to its altitude and terroir, Calafate presents an outstanding opportunity to the growth and development of wine production. It’s local variety, Torrontés, provides a very fresh and cool wine that can be pair with almost any flavor. It’s a favorite on Asian and thai food, due to its acidic and crisp balance. In its many acres, wine producers grow Tannat, Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah, etc. Read more “Cafayate at Night”
