There’s one way into Argentina by road from Pucon in Chile. And it consists of a 4 hour bus ride south to a town called Osorno, a 3 hour wait, then a 5 hour bus ride to Bariloche and one border crossing. Being so use to travelling by night, I initially wasn’t too keen on having to do it all during the day, but I hadn’t taken into account the the views.
The drive from the Chilean border through to Bariloche was absolutely stunning. Snow capped mountains, lush green valleys, and pristine lakes (note: ‘snow capped’ ‘pristine’ ‘lush’ three descriptives you’ll be hearing a lot in the next few weeks… there are only so many ways something can be said in words… the rest must be felt.) This was only a taste of what was to come, my intense love of Chile now stretched to Argentina.
