Ushuaia Argentina Wedding Locations | Patagonia Wedding Planner

 

Have you ever had a very vivid (almost lucid) dream about a place you’ve never been and one that you’re not even sure exists as a real life location?  But you explore it in your dreams and are convinced you will and must find it?!  Ushuaia, Argentina was this uncanny place for me.

 

I’ve always been a seeker of offbeat, unheard of, and sometimes all it takes is seeing an image of a location and suddenly I have an undying urge to investigate the location.  Call it intuition or call it fate, I often find my way to these locations and I am never disappointed in the secret adventure wedding locations I stumble upon!  It’s incredibly exciting!

 

Since I spend most of my time at the token “top of the world” planning adventure weddings in Iceland and throughout the other amazing Nordic countries, I thought it might be a brilliant change to start off 2016 at the bottom of the world, in the most southern city in the world: Ushuaia, Argentina.  You’ve probably never heard of it so please allow me today to introduce you to this unspoken beauty!

 

 

First question… How do you get to the end of the world city, Ushuaia?  There are direct flights into Ushuaia, Argentina (airport code: USH) and then it is best to rent a car.  But!  If you’re looking for a driving adventure you can fly into the main airport in Patagonia in Punta Arenas (airport code: PUQ), rent a car (Tip: Ensure it has the correct border crossing paper work before leaving) and then start a 1 hour trek to the border between Chile and Argentina.

 

You’ll need to take a cargo ferry in between (which you just show up and pay once you’ve boarded the ferry).  Once off you’ll have another 2.5 hour drive to the the Chilean/Argentina border (make sure you stamp out of Chile before you head to the Argentinean border).  We found an amazing amount of gorgeous secret locations and tons of guanacos along the way which made it such a fun drive!

The landscape in Ushuaia is unique full of interesting textures and tones.  There are unforgettable mountain views, earthy swamps, bridges made from wood planks, waterfalls,  jungles, emerald lagoons, incredible cliffs, and beaches!

There are also two of the most amazing hotels I’ve ever stayed also in this area of Ushuaia, Argentina!  They can easily accommodate a dreamy Patagonia elopement or a large 100+ wedding in Ushuaia with all of the North American 4-5 star hotel amenities we know and love.

Torres del Paine National Park | Patagonia Wedding Photographer + Planner

Adventure was born and lives in Patagonia, no joke folks!  Specifically, it resides in the Torres del Paine National Park.  Have no idea where that is?  Picture: South America, then find your way to Chile, and then down the Andes Mountains to the most southern section of Chile and Argentina… Then you’ll find yourself in the formal region of Chilean Patagonia in the midst of the Torres del Paine Park!

Once in the Torres del Paine National Park, you’ll find something totally intoxicating and borderline addicting about seeing the different angles of those famed granite “W” mountain peaks, the mysterious Grey Glacier, and the wild feeling of freedom that fills this park.  Not to mention the endless amounts of wildlife like, Guanacos (alpacas), Ostriches, Flamingos, Pumas, Foxes, Armadillo, and Condors flying around which all help add to the enchantment.

The moment we arrived at one of the park entrances, we were greeted by a gorgeous guanaco and boy was he playful as you’ll see below!

The entire park is weaved together by gravel roads which adds to the charm as the wind blows the dust around.  Adventure junkies from around the world come to cross off their bucket lists the the challenging 3, 7, or 10 day trek around the Torres del Paine National Park.

The main areas that make up the “W” mountain hiking trip are as follows: Glacier Grey, The French Valley, and the Base of the Torres (the 3 towers) overlooking the stunning Torres Lagoon.

I’m a glacier lover personally, so give me some crampons, ice, and gorgeous view and I’ll be set for the day =)  One of my favorite things about Patagonia’s Torres del Paine Grey Glacier is the opportunities to experience the glacier on many levels.  You have the glorious option of taking a boat ride to skim the edges (for you lower intensity adventure seekers), if you’re a middle of the road adventure seeker than there is a fantastic hike you can do to get to the viewing point you’ll see below.  There you will see the glacier, beautiful mountains, and the glacier lagoon with pieces of ice that have broken off from the glacier.  For you high intensity adventure wedding seekers, there is two more opportunities for you… Kayaking around and then climbing onto the Grey Glacier.  Exciting stuff, right?!
