Save Place
Arguably the most famous fjord in Norway, the Geirangerfjord is known for its emerald forests, slender waterfalls, and picturesque hamlets. To get up close and personal, take the car ferry that runs between the villages of Geiranger and Hellesylt,...

Tryvann, Oslo Municipality, Norway
Tryvann is a nice little area within Nordmarka (another afar.com highlight), that has everything you can ask for in a forest. Tryvannshøgda, a large hill, overlooks the three small lakes: Skomakertjern, Lille Tryvann, and Store Tryvann. The...

Myrdal, Norway
Few countries can rival Norway for dramatic, jaw-dropping scenery. This view was captured on board the scenic Bergen Railway on a "Norway in a Nutshell" tour that took in the breathtaking Flåm Railway, the Aurlandsfjord, the narrow Nærøyfjord and...
Save Place
Forsand Municipality, 4110 Songesand, Norway
One of Norway’s most iconic images is of a traveler dangling his legs over a cliff, a glistening fjord below his boots. Preikestolen, known in English as Pulpit Rock, is that cliff, and it can be reached only by a two-hour hike from the...
Save Place
Averøy Municipality, Norway
Declared "the world's best road trip" by the Guardian, a drive along western Norway's 5.2 mile Atlantic Ocean Road is certainly bound to be inspiring. The road connects the mainland with several small islands of an archipelago, winding across the...

Av. Rivadavia 1432, B2800 Zárate, Pcia de Buenos Aires, Argentina
The province of Buenos Aires is dotted with lovely old estancias (ranches) that are open to visitors - but some are irritatingly touristy. For a more down-to-earth dia del campo (day in the country), try Estancia Los Dos Hermanos. A typical day...
Save Place
We were lost. My driver had picked me up from Hotel Alvear in Buenos Aires two hours ago, maybe more. It was hot in the car; the A/C had only two settings "off or ice blast." I opted for a rolled-down window. We were on a jutted, dusty road that...

Cerro Torre
Patagonia is a climbers and hikers mecca, and although you may have to walk eight hours to see the best of it, I promise you will be well rewarded. Cerro Torre is the quintessential Patagonian peak, looking almost statesman like rising up amongst...
Save Place
El Calafate, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina
Years ago while living in Buenos Aires, I decided to take my first trip alone, to the edge of Argentina, down in Patagonia. Running along the Chile-Argentina border, Perito Moreno is one of three Patagonian glaciers that is not retreating. It...

Ruta Nacional 40 Km 4340, A4427 Cafayate, Salta, Argentina
When I'm not chasing grizzly bears through the woods or diving head first over waterfalls, I'm usually working on one story or the other at some plush hotel that occupies space right between my wildest dream and most curious fantasy. I'm lucky...
Save Place
Inside Los Glaciares National Park is the small town of El Chaltén, created by the Argentine government for campers and trekkers looking to explore the many trails in the park. The town is only composed of a few streets, but is full of wonderful...
