For those outdoorsy fans, you will have your ultimate partner in the El Chaltén and its surrounding mountains. They are ideal for hiking, rock climbing and horseback riding. You can celebrate your initiation into Southern America with a barbecue at the pretty valley of Río de las Vueltas.

4. Hiking at Laguna Torre

This is another popular place to take a hike and burn those calories that you have been accumulating through years of good living. The hostile weather will work your metabolic system to its limit.

5. Go Kayaking

With scenic coastlines, majestic fjords and flowing rivers, Patagonia is one of the 5 top places to kayak in the world. It will be a mistake not to try your hand at kayaking in these ice-cold waters.
