Walking in Patagonia isn’t really an option. While there are plenty of hiking trials around the area, you’ll need wheels to get to and from the major destinations. Rental cars are available at the airport and many of the resorts offer a range of vehicles to rent, from small cars to larger SUVs. Depending on your needs you can rent a car by the hour, day or week.
Additionally, taxicabs and shuttles are available from the airport. Unless you’re doing a lot of driving opt for the bus or cab to get you to your resort and then determine when you’ll need a car, as many of the resorts also provide shuttles to Los Glaciares National Park and other attractions.
Taxicabs generally need to be called in advance, and hailing a cab can be tricky… if they even ever pass by. The drivers are also friendly and rates are usually preset. Cars can also be hired by the day, and this is a good option if you’d like to take in the sights and leave the driving to someone else.Bikes and other off-road vehicles are available for rental as well, and there are set trails where these can be used. If you’re bringing your bike it also makes a great way to see the majesty of Patagonia!
