Travelling solo - a photographer in Bariloche
In January of 2023, I spent the month in South America, exploring the Patagonia region of Argentina and Chile.
With one week left to go on my journey, I wanted to visit Bariloche, but did not have any specific plan in mind. A friend referred me to Aventura Austral, and I was introduced to Marina and Christian online. From the moment we connected, they were very professional, and arranged everything I needed to make sure I had a wonderful stay. From booking flights, to accommodations, and a rental car, everything was lined up and ready for me.
When I arrived to Bariloche, Marina and Christian even offered to meet up with me in person to explain some logistical things about the area, and to ensure I spent my time efficiently to have the best experience. I really appreciated that! They gave me a map of the region, and a list of great restaurants, scenic hikes, and other recommendations with links to check out all these
things online as well.
I’m a photographer, so I was very interested in going to places to achieve the best photos. I ended up getting some amazing shots that I will treasure forever! They also set up a Whatsapp chat group and let me know that I could message them at any time with questions or concerns. Marina even reached out to me from time to time to make sure everything was going well. Being a solo traveler, it was great to know that I always had someone locally who I could contact if I needed them.
I would highly recommend Marina and Christian of Aventura Austral. They are very down to earth people who are passionate about what they do, and genuinely care that you have a wonderful and memorable travel experience.
Thank you again, Marina and Chris!
