A few tips before taking the road  :


  • Bring a YPF road map, the most recent and complete one

  • Do not forget to eat all your fruits and vegetables before crossing the border since Chilean and Argentinian people do not let anything get in their country 

  • Closely watch your fuel gauge and fill the gas tank whenever you can because gas stations will be rare and Patagonia is really vast and sometimes deserted 

  • Take the emergency numbers on your phone. You will also find all these phone numbers inside the notebook that we will give you when you leave 

  • Do not forget to collect ! During a road trip, it might be great to keep everything ! Plastic bags (for dirty laundry, as a bin, etc.), paper towels (in case of a lack of toilet paper), rubber bands or wires (to close a bin bag, to fix something...)

  • Do not forget to take your valuable items with you, or to hide them very well in the strong-box of the van, in order not to appeal potential thieves, most of all in touristic places or cities 

  • Try as much as you can to inquire about the weather conditions and the news, we never know. Forewarned is forearmed. 

  • Buy maté and more than a kilo of yerba since long hours driving are waiting for you (Did you know yerba maté prevents you from sleeping ?)
