Patagonia is a place of two extremes: nothingness and everything. The two are rarely fused together, but instead kept apart so that both sides are appreciated. When you plan flights to Patagonia, you’ll be fortunate enough to experience one amazing side, but incredibly blessed to see both.
Most outdoorsy types are drawn to the southernmost area, or what is sometimes known as “the end of the world”. Beyond a few colours, glaciers, and a never ending horizon, that’s what you get when you go there. But words can barely do it justice.
Up top, as you get closer to busy places like Buenos Aires, the mood changes drastically. Tango and flamenco dancing, lively music, and decadent fare appear on every road, in every establishment. Ray Ban shops, reggae bars, and ex-patriots in rarest form make the northern side of Argentina much different from its counterpart. In between, (after you drive for days, of course) you’ll notice more wildlife, and as you enter the Patagonian Steppe, all you see is the landscape.
Although you might feel like you’re the only human in the world amid the unbelievable climate and natural attractions, your discovery is one that many others have attempted. Since the area is so vastly built on two extremes, it’s often best explored by a guided tour. Plan flights to Patagonia to experience the quieter, more contemplative side of Argentina.
Because southern Argentina exists in the Chilean Andes’ rain shadow, it rarely experiences some of the Pacific storms that occur on the east coast. Although heavy precipitation falls toward those slopes, when you book flights to Patagonia, you’re more apt to experience the dry winds that its plains are so well known for, and the temperate seasonal influence that characterises its winter to typically sit in temperatures well below freezing.
Because the weather is so crazy and unpredictable no matter what time of year you travel, there’s no bad time to plan flights to Patagonia, especially if you’re in the mood for adventure.
In order to avoid the most freezing, snowy, and inclement of weather patterns, it’s easier for most to plan flights to Patagonia in the summer (December to February), when the storms are less tumultuous, and it’s easier for travellers to navigate the land.
Although winter can be a bit unbearable (June and August), adventurous travellers find cheap flights to Patagonia during the cold months, especially to seek that special thrill that certain trekking individuals crave.
Getting around here is no easy feat. Gravel roads lead to bumpy bus rides, and harrowing journeys, but they are all part of the voyage when you plan a flight to Patagonia. Since Argentina is the world’s eighth largest country, it’s a good idea to splurge on transportation. Although it might be easy to find a cheap flight to Patagonia, you won’t want to scrimp when it comes to bus rides from Buenos Aires to the southern tip.
