All Trying to find the proper bus at the station in Santiago is a bit of a challenge!! From Mendoza I suspect it would not be as challenging. The border crossing is 'complicated' as our bus driver said. It took us 2 hours which I understand is sort of the norm, Have heard stories of folks taking a LOT longer.... More

After spending some days in Santiago, we got on a bus (called Nevada - apparently a sister company of Andesmar) for a 7 hour journey over Andes mountains to Mendoza. We got the executive seats downstairs and were given some tea and cookies along the way. We later on heard the following day tons of buses got stranded up in... More

We were unable to actually go into the Andes on the ground but we did have an amazingly clear day on our flight from Buenos Aries to Santiago. I just had to share some photos.

This was the reason we flew to Mendoza - to take the bus to Santiago through the Andes mountains. It was one of the best trips I have ever done. The cost was about USD50.00! This included a light lunch and afternoon tea, served by one of the drivers. Bus travel in Argentina is fantastic. Double decker bus - huge... More

A great experience in the Andes mountains on a trip lasting several hours from Mendoza by 4WD and visiting the villages close to the border with Chile. Explore the Potrerillos Dam, mountain village of Uspallata, the peaks of the Aconcagua, an abandoned train station, enjoying a gourmet lunch with wine at Las Cuevas and so many great things that guests...

We drove from Santiago to Mendoza on a clear cool sunny day. The Chilean side is very different from the Argentine side of the mountains. Very little snow during January which is their summer. Some parts look like the painted desert in the U.S. We got up to about 9000 feet in the ski area which was like a desert... More

Most beautiful sun rises and sunsets. Come prepared for all weather conditions and be physically fit, due to the lack of oxygen.

If you like nature, hicking and are tired of the tour that take you to big shopping centers, this is the place for you. The only danger is that once you see the pollution over Santiago, you won't want to go back.

We visited in Summer and took the chairlift to the top (which you have to pay for), to the next level (around 3,000+ metres). The view was incredible. It was 31 degrees C, in Santiago,You will need sunscrean, a hat and maybe a light jacket on the mountain, as the cold wind is strong.. There are masses of colourful wild... More
