​Deutschsprachige Zubuchertour Patagonien

“Patagonien hat tiefe Wurzeln in meinen Gedanken hinterlassen” – Charles Darwin 1809 – 1882


Nicht nur der Naturwissenschaftler Charles Darwin, wurde, seit dem er hier und dort in diesem weitem, teils sehr trockenem und menschen verlassene Land war, von den Besonderheiten und natürlichen Schönheiten beeindruckt. Es sind viele die, seit der Entstehung der Arten, offen, naturgebunden aber auch unbewusst seiner Theorie, im südlichsten Zipfel Amerikas gereist sind. Dank der wunderschönen hier erlebten Momente und Eindrücke sind deren Gedanken von Patagonien immer noch stark geprägt.

Color Patagonia

Unendliche Steppen Pampas, magische Buchenwälder, eigenartige Tiere, immer unterschiedlich blau- aber auch grün und Türkis gefärbte Seen zu Füßen von Granit- Kolossen sind nur ein Teil der Mystik, die Patagonien erweckt! Nicht nur die Natur ist einladend! Der Argentinier und der Chilene ist gastfreundlich und dies wird spätestens während eines asados, Grill- abendessen klargestellt. In diesem weitläufigen Land voller umzingelnden Horizonten wird das Gefühl der Lebendigkeit erwachen. Buenos Aires und, fern von den Geräuschen der Großstadt, Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Gletscher Moreno und Torres del Paine sind die großen Höhepunkte dieser Deutschsprachigen Zubuchertour.

Viele Reisende haben gehört … , dass der Herr im Himmel sich die Farben in den vielen Seen am Fusse der Anden holt, um die wunderschönen Himmel Patagoniens zu malen … Wer weiss, sicher ist, dass Patagonien mehr als eine Reise Wert ist. Unsere Empfehlung ist “Lass‘ nichts außer Fußabdrücken zurück und außer Deinen Eindrücken und besten Fotos, nehme nichts mit.”

THIS IS NOT ANOTHER CITY TOUR

This is an original cultural immersion experience, highly recommended for visitors looking for a behind the scenes encounter with Buenos Aires.


The best way to really learn a language is to live it through day to day situations. That is why we bring you this fun, unique and friendly city promenade, joined by a local person that doesn’t even seem to be a guide, but a friend that shows you around and tells you facts and stories about Buenos Aires.

Walking through the lively and charming streets of Palermo neighborhood, you will merge with locals, hop into designer shops and fascinate yourself with the current street art scene in Buenos Aires.

In the course of the walk, you will experience a different basic Spanish class, distinguished by the introduction of Lunfardo, the porteño slang. Words, expressions and/or verbs such as bondi, laburo, chabón, afanar and al divino botón might be heard and learnt.

Lunfardo was born in Buenos Aires during the second half of the 19th century, due to the contribution of immigration – specially Italian – and words of indigenous, African, and Gaucho origin.

At first, this jargon was used by criminals and soon by people from the lower and lower middle classes. At the beginning of the 20th century, lunfardo began to spread among all social classes, either by the usual use, because it was common in the lyrics of tango, or both.

Nowadays, some of its terms are part of the natural language of almost all of Argentina, Uruguay and, to a lesser extent, Paraguay. While some words of the old lunfardo of the early 20th century have been modified, new ones have also been added. In 2011 it was considered that the lunfardo already consisted of around 6000 words.

On this “city talk”, while going in and out of every kind shops, you will learn how to apply the porteño slang to feel like a local living the everyday life, and learn about the history and present of the capital city and Argentina, interacting with great venues in a real social, cultural and fun immersion.

This unique experience is not only an amusing way to get to know Buenos Aires, but  a must for everyone who wants to get an insider!

YACHTING THROUGH THE BEAGLE CANAL

There are always memorable activities when traveling, and this is certainly one not to be missed.


This time we get the chance to go across the beautiful city of Ushuaia by sea, on board an enchanting petit yacht.

Setting sail from the local tourist dock along with the captain and a bilingual sailor and guide, we set course towards the Beagle Canal aboard Yate Tango, a cozy and very welcoming little yacht. We navigate in the direction of Alice Island to watch sea lions in their natural habitat.

Then, we continue to the Birds Island, where the king and imperial cormorants inhabit with seagulls and other bird species, typical of the landscape of these latitudes.

We begin to see the mythical Les Eclaireurs lighthouse, one of the most representative icons of Ushuaia, which was first operated on December 23rd, 1920, and that still works today. We get close enough to take beautiful pictures.

On the way back, we stop at Bridges Island for a short hike, discovering the flora and fauna of the surroundings thanks to our guide.

As we also see archeological rests, we learn about the Yamanas – the aborigines who settled here many years ago. We realize how difficult was for them to live on these hostile lands and it’s amazing to learn how they were able to adapt and survive for so long.

During the whole navigation, on board we share snacks, warm tea, hot chocolate and coffee, biscuits and -of course- mate.

Yate Tango offers an intimate navigation experience, where laughter and anecdotes will be shared between a small group of people. This is such a fun and special tour that we´ve been told that friendship emerges and that no one wants to get off in the end!


GENERAL INFORMATION

  • 4 hs regular excursion.
  • Two daily departures: 10 am and 3 pm.
  • From December to February, one more departure at 7 pm.
  • Transfer to the local dock are not included.

 

BEYOND THE WATERFALLS IN IGUAZÚ

We found the ideal place for nature lovers, birdwatchers, photographers and anyone willing to isolate from everyday life: La Lorenza.


Emilio and Picu, a couple passionate about nature, share their private reserve with those who are willing to discover a different Iguazú. They define it as a secret spot beyond the famous waterfalls and off the beaten track.

La Lorenza is 45 minutes away from the city of Iguazú, immersed in a forest rich in biodiversity, medicinal plants, orchids, bromeliads, butterflies, and birds many of them endemic to the ecoregion. Located on the Paraná River, the reservation is also a rural area where local families live off the land.

Among other activities that provide a close encounter with nature within the reserve, we would like to recommend specially two of them.

The first one, a 2.5 miles kayaking adventure. Paddling the serene waters of the Urugua-í river will allow you to contemplate nature from a different perspective and to move silently along the forest. Then, a 45 minutes walk through the forest will take you to a very special spot to finish the day.  

The other recommendation is a fun interpretative walk across the jungle. An expert guide will conduct this multi-sensory experience, providing information on the several natural environments, their flora and fauna. The soft hike also includes a visit to a typical little house with its vegetable garden, to capture the atmosphere of the local life in intimate contact with nature.  

Both the walk and the kayak tour end at a deck with an open view to Paraguay and the Paraná River; a unique place across borders, sharing a mate/tereré and interesting facts and stories about the area.

If you would like to take part on any of these options at La Lorenza, please contact us to provide you more information.
