  • well good afternoon guys good  afternoon guys another beautiful  

  • day in bariloche patagonia argentina indeed so  today we are finally leaving our cozy little  

  • chalet in the woods to go on an excursion we're  going on a trip do you know where we're going  

  • we are going island hopping yes so  we're going to visit Nahuel Huapi

  • Nahuel Huapi is the name of the lake and the  provincial park but we are going to visit isla  

  • victoria yes victoria auditoria island and that's  that's what most people mistakenly call the island  

  • i'm from vancouver yeah instead of vancouver  island they call it victoria island because  

  • that's the capital capital of the island yeah and  then aside from that we're going to be visiting a  

  • very famous forest that we've already been to onprevious trip it is called bosque da rallanes yeah  

  • it's the outer janes forest yes and it's beautiful  we visited there when we were at villa angustura

  • we sure did today it's gonna be a brief first stop  since we've already been there but yeah it's a  

  • beautiful day to be out on the water cruising  to Nahuel Huapi Patagonia and in terms of how  

  • we got here we hopped on the public bus again  yeah number 20. number 20. that's an awesome  

  • system it comes like what every i think it comes  every 15 20 minutes yeah yeah something like that  

  • we hopped on the number 20 and a nice scenic  journey and guys if you want to know how to get  

  • to this port you'll see the beautiful llao llao  hotel on the left just before you arrive here  

  • yeah the port's like directly across and it is  called puerto panoelo yeah and so we're just gonna  

  • check out the port area we have about 45 minutes  until we leave and i can't wait to do this today

  • so this excursion was super easy to organize and  we actually booked everything online we decided to  

  • go with a tour operator called cow cow they have  morning and afternoon departures but the morning  

  • excursion is a bit longer and gives you more time  on victoria island so that might be a good option  

  • if you want to do a bit of hiking and turn this  into a full day outing also fun fact Nahuel Huapi  

  • national park is the oldest national park in  all of argentina so that's another reason to

  • visit

  • guys we have made it to isla victoria on Nahuel  Huapi our first stop of the day on this little  

  • boat cruise adventure and it's been kind of hectic  you know getting on the boat cruising it was just  

  • like 20 minutes on the boat and boom we're there  so we didn't have a chance to tell you the prices  

  • so now we're just taking a quiet moment to sit  down and let's do some math for anyone planning  

  • to visit you're gonna love this okay first up  the trip you can do the basic package where it's  

  • basically just transportation to the island and  you know hiking with a guide or if you're a foodie  

  • and you're constantly hungry like we are you  can pay to have catering and you get three meals  

  • yeah every time you're sailing you all you also  get an exclusive seating area too yeah you're on  

  • the upper deck yeah so that's pretty nice only 12  bucks more so that's what we went for yeah so i  

  • had a glass of wine you had you had wine red wine  white wine beer three empanadas each yeah and then  

  • there's gonna be sandwiches and there's going  to be merienda with like pastries and alfajores  

  • so yeah it's totally worth it if if if your  budget allows for it yes so that was 46 per  

  • person for the excursion with the guide plus three  meals that's what we paid if you don't want to pay  

  • for the meals then it's a lot cheaper i think it's  more around the 30 mark right yeah and then aside  

  • from that you have to pay your admission into the  national park this is parque nacional Nahuel Huapi  

  • and that was let's do some more math if you're  argentine or if you have a dni it is three dollars  

  • and if you're a foreigner mr gringo it is almost  seven dollars wrinkle sammy back here so yeah and  

  • aside from that you also have to pay an  embarkation fee like a boarding fee for getting  

  • on the boat and that was that's the national park  right no no no oh it's different there's three  

  • different fees guys wow so i didn't know about  the third one for you know getting on the boat and  

  • being on a boat on the lake so those three things  that's what we've paid so far yeah once you arrive  

  • on the island here on isla victoria they have  different guides so you can do a difficult hike  

  • that has a bit of a higher incline or you can  do an easy hike and then there's another guide  

  • for anyone who speaks english yeah we just kind  of ran away it's like okay we're meeting at four  

  • we're doing our own thing we're just gonna be  aware of the time and uh yeah it's actually nice  

  • because there's a lot of people but they disperse  quickly and now it feels like we have the island  

  • to ourselves i know like when we first got off the  boat there were like hundreds of people everywhere  

  • and it's like oh and now they they're all doing  their own thing everyone's sitting there we have  

  • it feels like we have this part of the park  to ourselves yeah so that's pretty cool  

  • and we have about an hour and 20 minutes here  so we'll do a little hiking enjoy the scenery  

  • and yeah it's good then we hop back on the  boat and we're going to gobble some more food  

  • once we disembarked in puerto rina  it was time to explore the island  

  • the beach is a lovely place to linger if  you happen to visit on a warm and sunny day  

  • plus there are also hiking trails with cool  lookout points along the way let's get started

  • we learned this a bit too late but even though  this destination is advertised as a day trip  

  • there's actually a lodge on the island where you  can spend the night the place is called osteria  

  • isla victoria and it's a pretty luxurious place  offering kayaking mountain biking guided hikes  

  • gourmet meals and unbeatable views if we get the  chance to go back we definitely want to stay there  

  • let's get started

  • so we followed the signs towards the beach and the  the rock paintings those cute paintings we did and  

  • then we started climbing we saw a trail we saw  a trail so basically you walk by and then you'll  

  • notice a beach to your right and to your left you  have stairs going up and that's 150 meter ascent  

  • so right now we're almost at the at the peak  look-up point the views are spectacular from here  

  • we seem to have lost the crowds which is wonderful  

  • oh it's just so it's postcard picture beautiful  here guys yeah there's no other way to describe  

  • it i agree it's just amazing the the snow-capped  mountains in the background yeah turquoise waters  

  • the forest the yellow the yellow blossoming  flowers oh yeah all the shrubs and bushes are  

  • in bloom this time of year so beautiful here  and we still have 45 minutes so it's gonna  

  • kind of take it in grab some views from up here  and then start making our way back to the boat  

  • so

  • we then got back on the boat and continued  the journey to the famous arallanes forest  

  • hello hello time for an update yes we've uh we've  been enjoying a company we've uh found on the on  

  • the ferry ride on the boat ride we've met umcouple that lives in in the us but they're from  

  • korea so we've been talking about our travels in  korea and other places sam got to practice the  

  • the little korean yeah members yeah and then  we also many years away we also met a guide  

  • that lives close to where you grew up oh yeah in  uh in argentina yeah in the sierras of cordoba  

  • so there's been a lot to talk about we didn't  film a whole lot yeah basically we've been  

  • social and put the camera down  yeah once but now we've arrived  

  • in the place that we visited like what half  a year ago exactly we are back in bosque  

  • yes so it's the the forest of the arillanes the  famous tree out here and yeah it's so nice to be  

  • back this was one of our favorite hikes earlier in  the year so we'll show you a bit what's going on

  • los arrayanes national park was created in  1971 with the sole purpose of protecting the  

  • forest of the rare aradan trees the  trees in this forest are believed to  

  • be around 300 years old though there are  some specimens upwards of 400 years of age  

  • the aradan is known for its cinnamon-colored  bark and they are surprisingly cool to the touch  

  • this is because their bark is so thin that you can  feel the sap inside the tree which is pretty cool  

  • we found a little quiet section of the forest all  to ourselves we went the opposite way the opposite  

  • way we walked clockwise everyone else is going  counterclockwise so we have to like pass them but  

  • then once we got here oh i feel like i probably  sound very anti-social like i don't want to say  

  • people raw but i just feel like i enjoy nature so  much better when there's there's less people yeah  

  • no crowds thing is um the the nice thing if you go  from villa angostura is that you get dropped off  

  • and you can walk this beautiful um this beautiful  island there's this beautiful park at your own  

  • pace at your own pace yeah it's interesting doing  this tour for the second time because like you  

  • mentioned when we did it from villa angosturathink it was also the end of the tourist season  

  • so it was just a lot quieter a smaller group and  then we walked back on our own so we could really  

  • you know stop to enjoy the forest so on this tour  we only have 30 minutes here to walk around the  

  • loop and there's the option of following the guide  and he'll give you information tell you about the  

  • trees and the forest and things like that or  you can walk it on your own but still it's  

  • it's a quick visit it's like a little pit stop  basically so i would say if you really want to  

  • enjoy this place come on your own come on your  own and come to vishalangostura where you can  

  • do it on a day trip and you can walk back into  town basically a full day activity yeah yeah  

  • so

  • once we finished our excursion of Nahuel  Huapi national park and arrived back at  

  • the port we saw the beautiful llao  llao hotel at the top of the hill  

  • it was just a little too irresistible so we  decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner  

  • now i would recommend making a reservation  in advance if you can because the front desk  

  • didn't seem so keen on walk-ins but we did  manage to get a table at their cafe patagonia  

  • we also got to go down to their cellar to selectbottle of wine and we then ordered fondue for two

  • alrighty so we are having the malbec wine the  national wine of argentina and it's from a bodega  

  • we know really well potato we've had their wines  in canada we've had them in argentina many times  

  • this is a special limited edition this is  bottle 380. the other thing too holding this  

  • in the hand this wine bottle is like twice  or three times as heavy it's like a special  

  • bottle like skookum heavy it's a  it's a really high quality bottle  

  • and i love the uh you can see it says  the llao llao from the front and the wine

  • velvety very very nice i would  say exquisite exquisite it's uh  

  • extremely good it's gonna go  great with our with our fondue

  • the fondue has arrived the fondue is here indeed  it is a giant clay pot full of melted cheese  

  • three different types of cheese to go along with  it we've got some plums dried plums toasted bread  

  • there's cooked ham little sausages seasoned  bread and noisette potatoes show how much  

  • cheese you can get look at that guys you  can get lots of cheese it just keeps going  

  • one more time for one more time for the camera  perfect one more time perfect all right guys  

  • there's just so many different things to try  in this cheese i'm going to try to give you  

  • an opinion of what's the best so we're starting  off with ham basically cooked ham if you're not  

  • smothering it you're not doing it justice look at  that sam's already lost a few pieces in the cheese  

  • would you like a little ham with your cheese

  • okay perfect combination how many  cheeses go together so well um  

  • even more so cheese and wine  and cheese cheese and wine  

  • they go hand in hand i've never tried plum yeah  that should be interesting oh that even that's  

  • even covered in more cheese unless look at that  how high can i go we have to test it out here

  • this is amazing we have so much food to eatreally don't think we're going to be able to  

  • eat it all but we're gonna eat a lot of it

  • wow you're doing well for  someone who didn't want anything

  • sorry what i'm doing really well  for someone who didn't want it

  • we're finishing another night here  on a couch in our cozy little cottage  

  • so last night where did 10 nights go oh man  guys we had such lofty goals of editing every  

  • single day i know we well we got distracted by  the beautiful the beauty of bar lucy and the  

  • breweries and the breweries and binge watching  on netflix of the crown just one day guys season  

  • three we watched all ten episodes in one day this  will be irrelevant by the time you're watching  

  • yeah anyways what a meal what an experience  at the jojo hotel that was a great day overall  

  • it was a good day i couldn't think of a better  day to finish things off here yeah and tomorrow  

  • we're going to al bazon maybe our favorite place  in patagonia so far we hope you'll stay tuned for  

  • that it should be a lot of fun and um yeah what  a great time in bariloche argentina definitely  

  • come here i used to think this place maybe wasbit overrated it's not it's worth the hype and um  

  • okay that's all i've got that was sam's opinion  after like riding in a bus through like a back  

  • street of bariloche argentina there's way more  to it and the nature and yeah it's amazing the  

  • more we've explored the more we've appreciated it  and uh this won't be our last time here but for  

  • now this is the end of our time in bar lucy should  we tell people how much dinner costs should we do  

  • some math is it too late to be doing math it was  just we ordered a really fancy one you did you got  

  • carried away i you know what i realized i've never  really ordered an expensive bottle of wine every  

  • time we've ordered wine in restaurants it's always  been in countries where it's quite affordable  

  • yeah and this is a fancy time i think we spent  almost 30 bucks on this one a bottle of wine  

  • and then we spent what 30 or 40 on our mains how  much was it total it was four almost five thousand  

  • okay it's almost 70 75 80 bucks for them  most expensive meal of the whole trip in a  

  • world famous hotel but memorable memorable  memorable and um yeah that's it what a day
