31/12/2014, 5:30AM Six hours of planning and a few rum & coke’s later here in San Pedro Sula, I can now present the next part of my trip. Fast forward in February and after a quick stop in Colombia, I will take a couple of flights to get down to Patagonia & Antarctica! It’s all booked now!!🙂

As usual, this post aims to see if anyone would like to join me for the next big adventure. In this one, you should not mind the cold and be willing to hike a lot, going down to the most southern parts of our planet. I am in the middle of traveling Central America (see the live updates!) and can finally tell well enough the date of being done here, which enabled me to book the flights to get down to the south of South America!

Due to my delay in Central America, I sadly had to cancel my Sailing adventure in the Caribbean and also the summit of Aconcagua in order to make it down to Ushuaia in time to catch my boat to Antarctica. I will still head to Colombia though and then fly out from Santa Marta to Bogota and from there to El Calafate via Buenos Aires. After a lot of research, I was able to find a great deal for just 550€ for all three flights, directly booked with the airlines!

Please see the detailed plan and check the different destinations on Google, so you can decide if it would be something for you. Note that I could not do all of Patagonia before Antarctica, that’s why I had to split it that way. The part in the Torres del Paine National Park might get a little bit cold, but at least we should have great landscapes during the fall season. Maybe I will be as lucky as in Canada during the start of my trip🙂

And if you have traveled in those areas before and you can provide some valuable feedback to improve my plan or add missing things, please let me know in the comments as well! I am able to shift things around between the booked flights and tours! PS: Whenever it says “Transfer to XX”, it means ground transport. XX > YY are flights.
