​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.”

DISCONNECTED HOLIDAYS IN PATAGONIA

A ranch in the middle of nowhere in Patagonia will make you reflect on your lifestyle and disconnect from the routine.


La Maipú is an iconic 45.000 hectare ranch in the Lake San Martin area, completely off-the-grid. The nearest airport is El Calafate, and then you need to drive for 4 hs through the mythic route 40 to get there.

Besides the breathtaking views, this ranch is famous for its history. The Lively brothers were the first owners and also the first settlers of the area. Mr. Joseph Lively arrived in 1902, thanks to Francisco ”Perito” Moreno who conceded them the land right before the territorial dispute between Argentina and Chile. The current owners of La Maipú kept Joseph’s cabin as a museum that takes you back in time to the old -and even wilder- Patagonia, where just natives and a few adventurous foreigners lived.

Long time friends Facu Yacuzzi and Facu Maroñas are behind the creation of La Maipú project. It was born due to the passion for nature, outdoors life and the love for food and wine. Then, along came Santi Donati and the three of them are involved in this partnership since. They focus on offering a young and relaxed service with world class quality standards and wish to make the most of the travel industry providing authentic experiences that leave a lesson. With conservation on their minds, they want to show their guests a more simple way of life towards a balanced future, believing that the energy of these special natural and wild spots can help us drive change.

That is why La Maipú doesn’t provide typical holidays (by the way, there’s only 3 hours a day of electricity and only 20 minutes of satellite wi-fi per day per person), but a whole experience including activities to learn while you relax and stay active.

The main house can accommodate up to 16 people on its three triple and three double cozy rooms, all with private bathroom and heating. The stay includes full board and a glass of wine.

Facu Maroñas takes care of the kitchen and its supplies, such as cattle and the organic garden. The in house chef creates his own signature dishes, always using the freshest local ingredients available to represent a mix of traditional Argentine and international food.

For those born trekking wanderers who love to get lost and explore untouched wilderness, there are more than eight trails of all sorts that will fit everyone. The ranch’s favorite is La Condorera, which takes approximately 8 hours both ways to reach the peak of this beautiful mountain where Andean Condors nest.

Besides hiking, at La Maipú there are more than 40 bird species to discover, watch and listen. You may also grab a mountain bike to explore the ranch’s grounds on your own and spend the day outdoors enjoying the amazing landscape.

Even lying down on earth at night to watch the countless stars, listening to the sound of the Patagonian silence will make you feel so small on this huge universe. We bring you this new experience to make you eager to learn how to contribute and change your life for the better good. Are you in?

Península Valdés Adventure

A thrilling close encounter with Patagonian nature and marine wildlife.


Península Valdés is a natural reserve in the Patagonia, located on the Atlantic coastline. It is renowned for the marine fauna that inhabits its beaches and surrounding waters, such as whales, penguins and many other seabird species, sea lions and elephant seals. Few places offer the possibility to observe so many animals in their natural habitat; this is a true and unique wildlife reservoir in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

For the chance to appreciate the abundant local fauna, we recommend our featured product “Peninsula Valdés Adventure”, tour that stands out from others because of the variety and quality of experiences included.

The first adventure of the day takes us to Estancia San Lorenzo, a pioneer sheep ranch located on the coastline of the San Matias gulf and 160 km away from Puerto Madryn.

This working ranch not only produces Australian merino sheep wool but it is also the home of a 600.000 Magellanic penguin colony, which brings us to this spot. On a 4×4 Overland truck we will reach the reserve and then trek towards the rookery, guided by naturalist guides. This may be the closest you will ever be of a penguin. Without altering their habitat, we will pass by and observe them.

Then, we will hop back on the 4×4 truck and go through the Cañadón de Fósiles, a fossil canyon witness of a million year history.

After the active part of the tour, we will get back to the estancia and enjoy an exquisite lamb on the spit in the old shearing barn, which was reconditioned to serve as a country restaurant, visitor centre and mini shop for local products and ranch souvenirs.

To finish the day, a 2 hour boat ride at sunset in Puerto Pirámides to watch Southern Right whales jumping and swimming around for the best pictures you could ever take. If we´re lucky, maybe these huge and majestic cetaceans will just pass us by so close to almost reach them. As close a you can be of wildlife itself.

For nature lovers, discover Patagonian marine fauna and fossil history as in no other place in Argentina.
