Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
Chile is famous as that absurdly long, thin country squeezed between the Andean cordillera (range) and the Pacific Ocean, while Argentina is for most the land of the prairie-like pampas, although there is far more to the country than that. Read the first page

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 26 Aug. 2003
Format: Paperback
An incredibly useful guide, providing both general information on Argentina and Chile - transport, customs, food, maps, flora and fauna - and a series of graded walks/expeditions that have been tried and tested by the author throughout the countries, ensuring that some or all of the book will be essential wherever you decide to visit.
Treks are graded by length, difficulty and expected time to complete, ordered by location and are accompanied by accurate maps and useful information on bothys/refuges etc, local wildlife and other points of interest that can be seen at specific times of the year. They are flexible and easily adapted to suit all standards.
I really enjoyed reading the guide and found it invaluable as it allows dipping in and out of it depending on where you are going, and after three weeks it was extremely dog-eared! Bear in mind that prices stated for Argentina (food/accommodation etc) are now lower due to their financial crisis.
