  • yeah i remember a few weeks ago you had mentioned this place and so

  • it's cool to be visiting we just had to take a couple little local buses to get

  • here yeah very easy to get here and well this is a small little village

  • it was founded by immigrants from switzerland so it's got

  • a really cool vibe in terms of the architecture

  • and it's a pedestrian friendly town in patagonia you can just walk around everywhere because

  • it's so small lots of things for tourists to do eat

  • you drink and you just kind of wander around swiss colony and

  • there's also some really good shops too so it's uh it's a fun outing i guess you

  • could do it for a half day if all day yeah and um yeah we're just gonna see

  • what we can find while we're here take it

  • easy enjoy what's the plan that's important

  • by the time we reach the village of colonia suiza aka

  • swiss colony argentina it was already time for lunch so our first order of business was

  • to find some food we followed our noses and they led us to this cozy chalet

  • the food is here of course the first stop of the day had to be food what else

  • would you expect from us so we're eating at a restaurant called

  • ida southern air but they do more like german swiss

  • food the dish i got it's called papa sorosti

  • and it's basically shredded potatoes with onions

  • and bacon took a big bite of that when you weren't looking

  • i like it it's kind of like a pancake long

  • crispy nice and tasty

  • i missed another big bite there you tried your wine

  • cheers for you people watching we got a red wine

  • we went for a little bottle because we are planning to walk around today

  • we don't want to be all lethargic exactly

  • small bottles

  • sam got the goulash with um which looks really good this is another

  • favorite of mine little hand rolled noodles look at that

  • argentine goulash looking hearty looking stewie looking

  • steamy can't wait to try it

  • you're right about being super tender i love the sauce it has to

  • so much flavor packed with flavor have another bite

  • did you get some sour cream in there

  • let's melt in them

  • so tasty i'm so hungry we're having a bit of a later lunch what time is it

  • it's 1 30. mm-hmm we only have lunch around noon so bring

  • your appetites today guys we're thinking of doing a few food stops today there's

  • just so much to try in the town let me try yours since you had a bite of mine

  • it's like a crispy pancake i'm going to taste the onions don't you

  • yeah it's really good i was expecting it to be a little thicker

  • but it is tasty dessert time dessert time it was included with your mane it

  • was what a nice surprise so it comes with

  • this apple cake with cream

  • oh those apples are so smooth and there's tons of cinnamon which i love

  • it's got a bit of a crumble texture on top of it really tasty

  • and a nice surprise so we didn't know it was included

  • so guys we had our lunch sam is really working hard to get that shot

  • oh yeah get those mountains um lunch like i was saying the total came

  • to 17 us dollars and that included two mains

  • sam's main chain with a dessert fancy schmancy

  • i will say like the portions aren't massive they were smaller than i was

  • expecting but you do get bread at the start of the meal

  • and while yours came with dessert so not that the quality was good

  • that's good yeah i'm kind of glad that we didn't have an

  • enormous portion because we'd be craving a siesta instead of wanting to walk

  • around yeah plus there are lots of like little

  • kiosks and cafes and dessert shops so we can

  • always get a little nibble afterwards indeed

  • so when we arrived in colonia suisa we learned that the best days to visit are

  • actually wednesdays and sundays during high season

  • when the town prepares a special dish called quranto we had unknowingly

  • arrived on a monday missing the big cookout by one day

  • kuranto is a dish that's prepared by digging a hole in the ground covering

  • the bottom with hot stones and then adding a mix of seafood

  • meat potatoes and vegetables it's basically like a giant outdoor pressure

  • cooker and people come from far and wide to try

  • this specific dish so that's something to keep in mind if you do decide to

  • visit with nokudanto on the menu we spent our day

  • walking up and down the main street and visiting some artisanal shops

  • but since it was a non-fair day many of the places in town were closed

  • wandering and strolling is how we ended up in front of the elf village

  • truth is we had no idea what the elf village was all about when we first set

  • foot in there but it turned out to be quite

  • entertaining especially if you come with a vivid imagination we were led into the

  • forest by our guide who taught us to identify

  • all sorts of trees and mushrooms but then he brought us to meet the creatures

  • of the forest we met all sorts of beings like the

  • gridmen who are able to become part of nature

  • leprechauns who like to guard their pot of gold and mischievous elves who like

  • to steal trinkets from the home there were also trolls witches and

  • forest fairies all living in this very forest

  • fun

  • and then we met edgar or edgar who may very well have a future career on the

  • runway work it edgar

  • we just finished visiting the elf village actually we met way more

  • creatures than just elves there were gnomes

  • and trolls and creatures that were half elf half animal half elf half tree

  • and leprechauns and leprechauns a leprechaun a leprechaun but yeah it was

  • kind of a fun attraction the only thing is that

  • the stories they tell you are all in spanish

  • so if you don't speak spanish you might miss out on all the elf stories oh yeah

  • kind of like a fun attraction if you're visiting as a family or with

  • kids just under five us dollars and the tour was like just under an hour i think

  • so yeah i think it was like 15 minutes yep

  • yep and yeah oh and we got to feed goats at the end of it all that was the

  • highlight that was fun there you go and now we are going

  • down to the lake apparently there's a little beach area around here

  • we're gonna see what that's all about but so far it's been a very enjoyable

  • day here at colonia suisa it's very peaceful place

  • just dirt roads everyone gets around on foot because the place is so tiny

  • lots of food options very unique architecture it's

  • very german very alpine style so yeah those are some impressions

  • did you bring your swimming trunks you know someone just dip their hand

  • into the water you were saying it was like glacial water basically

  • it's cold it's cold so there's a couple kids who've gone in

  • kind of tip-toeing but most people are just out here working on the montana to

  • be honest yeah no one's known's actually swimming no one's swimming

  • no very tell-tale but togo would go inside

  • oh togo would love it can you imagine he'd be jumping in

  • this would be like his rocky's road trip all over again

  • exactly we then did another loop around town and

  • thought you know what we're hungry so off we went in search of a little

  • something something ipa tie ipa time so we've worked up a

  • bit of an appetite we've been wandering around now for uh

  • two three hours since since lunch at least a couple of hours

  • and we're coming here for an early dinner but this particular place

  • specializes in craft beers they had ipa and they had porter so i

  • decided to go for something a bit more refreshing

  • pretty nice it matches your hair yes on camera

  • it's a red color it's very refreshing and i'm so thirsty so

  • ice cold beer is just just what the doctor ordered

  • dinner has arrived and what are you having dinner is syrup

  • so i went for the mountain potatoes they're kind of like fried potato wedges

  • with uh cheddar cheese creamy cheddar cheese all over

  • just a little snack slash dinner before we head back into town

  • guys i got a burger and i'm just trying to think when was the last time i had a

  • burger this is our first burger in argentina

  • maybe it could be that would be kind of shocking

  • yeah so lift the hood so we've got bacon cheese nice big patty and then under

  • here caramelized onions we've got some pepper tomatoes and some

  • lettuce loaded it's loaded and we're gonna share

  • this we're gonna share cutting it down

  • it gives it a bit of juiciness a bit of kick it's a really good burger you're

  • gonna like it and that was your day trip to swiss

  • colony bariloche this is a very small village that can easily be visited in half a day

  • though it is also possible to stay overnight and do some camping

  • or rent one of the few cabins our visit was short and sweet but we enjoyed what

  • we got to experience in a few hours for any of you thinking of visiting
