August 10th, 2019 mountain view

probably not a place to set up home for a week, but good for an overnight stop. Beautiful views of the Tatras and close to Propad. enter along a rough road from Velky Slakov (3080) as the little road passes over the 534... no junctions. also places further along to camp.

August 6th, 2019 Lake View

Lovely choice of spots between a group of lakes. we're in a 4x4 with a rtt. Sadly no swimming but very quiet at night. about 20 mins or so to Auschwitz.

August 5th, 2019 Paradise Dzierno Duze

nice beach, tho signs saying no swimming. Sunday evening was busy with jet skiers but quietened completely at dusk with just a few other campers. choices for beach side, plenty flat ground and a few other little spots. all good in a RTT. 4X4 not required.

August 3rd, 2019 Camperarea Dresden

smack in the centre of town. super busy as a concert right next door that evening but most cars cleared out at 11pm and we had space to pop our rooftent. very popular with RVs. bakery delivery between 8-9am. what's not to like!!

April 17th, 2019 Our gaff

having just finished a year in the Americas I'd love to open our place to overlanders. We have a decent size drive, washing machine and WiFi! please contact us before you arrive though. [email protected]

May 16th, 2018 Devoto

great super market and home ware store but no builders merchants. check the carpenter check in for a woodyard.


this is a wood yard not just a carpenter. mdf, chipboard as well. reasonable prices and helpful team.


amazing old industrial site. well worth a visit. tours in English or Spanish at 10am and 3pm each day Tues to Sunday. $U120pp. entry only is 50.

May 10th, 2018 shell

eye wateringly expensive fuel. if you're heading south and can wait 42 more km the price drops 9pesos a litre, if you're heading north... fill up before you get here!

May 10th, 2018 gomeria

2 friendly chaps. fixed our puncture straight away for 100p. very straight forward.

May 10th, 2018 super mercado

Just a heads up; closes most of the afternoon...

May 10th, 2018 YPF

fine facilities. new Wi-Fi code is on the counter. fill up here even if they are only taking cash... last cheaper fuel before you leave Patagonia!

May 7th, 2018 Visitor's center Peninsula Valdez

warning for park roads after/during rain. they were hard work even with 4WD. Sludgy, sticky mud left us virtually no traction. made for a long journey from Punta Norte.

May 6th, 2018 Valdes Million Dollar View

road is closed, we may have gone to see why!! shifting sand dunes across the track after a few km. possibly passable with 4WD but we decided not in the dark when we're not supposed to be here in the first place!

May 5th, 2018 YPF Station Gaz

4 runner/ rooftent. the only parking up appears to be right outside the shop... no dark corners! sparkly bathrooms and good Wi-Fi but we camped at the petrobras 1km away as better rooftop tent space.

May 5th, 2018 Fuel station Axion

4runner/rooftent this gas station is a better bet for parking up with some discretion. lots of empty space behind the garage and facilities as listed below. no showers that we saw.

May 1st, 2018 Hostel Aonikenk

nice place to stay, warm and plenty of hot water. good kitchen facilities. we were only guests but walls very thin! lovely hosts and secure parking. 800per matrimonial off season.

April 24th, 2018 Lo De Trivi

superb place to stay. super warm in the container bedrooms, good facilities (2 kitchens/ lots of hot showers) and really friendly family that run it. highly recommended when your rooftent would be blown to kingdom come

April 19th, 2018 Next to Río Chico

4 runner / rooftent. good, tree sheltered spots. we pulled into the little cubby in the trees just as you reach the site and had amazingly good wind protection. sadly, a fair bit of litter but good for a night or more.

April 18th, 2018 Camping Lo de Ale

4runner/ rooftent. we like to wildcamp where we can but there was no where near by with any wind protection. Mario's campground here was perfect, surrounded by tall trees, our tent didn't even flutter! very hot showers and in the off-season he charged us 3000pppn.

April 18th, 2018 Tazmania - pizzas / empanadas

Fed our empanada addiction here after we couldn't find the other place. very popular with locals too. best empanadas yet and a reasonable price. couldn't justify buying 14 though!

April 18th, 2018 panaderia el Diego

no sign of this place today 😯 maybe seasonal?

April 18th, 2018 Argentinian Immigration and Customs – Paso Río Jeinemeni

straight forward, but they did make us throw out lettuce, celery ham and salami (We could keep bacon... maybe coz it was unopened?)

April 16th, 2018 Rio Ibanez wild camp

4runner / rooftent Good wind protection (and some rain) in the trees. plenty of fire spots already built. if the weather was better it would be the perfect spot for a few days.

April 15th, 2018 Vista Espectacular Y Buen Lugar Para La Noche

4runner / rooftent good spot for the night, not sure how long it will be available as they are putting in barriers but can still get in at the top of the loop.

April 13th, 2018 Viewpoint on the cliffs

4runner/rooftent. simple stop as described. cynical other half was impressed when we spotted dolphins cruising by within 10 mins of arrival. also in the morning. not far off road, but it's not busy at this time of year and the view is beautiful.

April 13th, 2018 Chelenko Patagonia Steak House

superb food, I'd say to suit most budgets as portions are large... the bowl of dirty chips is enough for two on its own. good beer (and that's coming from an Englishman!). we expect to see your checkin in the future!

April 13th, 2018 Mirador Ventisquero Colgante

beautiful hike, if you have the luxury of being here at a quieter t time of year, a little later in the day... early afternoon perhaps... would mean you're not looking at it straight into the sun.

April 11th, 2018 Camping La Cascada

superb camping spot, 200pppn. common area with kitchen facilities and big fire place, vital when camping in the rain in April! hot showers all day
.. you need to wait a few mins for the hot water, don't panic! friendly owner with cabanas as well.

April 10th, 2018 Dinosaur museum

We came here one rainy Tuesday April morning. we could see signs but there was no longer anything that was a dinosaur museum... maybe it's seasonal??
