BA - Mendoza - Bariloche - Santiago

My husband and I will be flying into BA and leaving from Santiago, Chiile in early November. We want to visit BA; Mendoza (he loves Malbecs); Bariloche; and Santiago. I'm trying to plan our schedule but I am finding it hard. We have 2-weeks for this trip.

If anyone has done this trip before and can assist us with a suggested itinerary, we would appreciate it.

BTW, we don;t mind flying from one place to the other but would like to cross from the argentinian border to the chilean side through the lakes.

Thanks!!!!!

I will be happy to help. Fly from Santiago to Mendoza (sit on the the left side of the plane to see Aconcagua). Then fly Mendoza to Bariloche via Aerolineas Argentina (new route).

Then do the Lakes Crossing

from Bariloche to Puerto Montt.

And fly Puerto Montt to Santaigo via LAN or Sky Airlines.

Another option is to depart from Buenos Aires instead of SCL. It's a much better city and worthy of a vacation.

Please PM if you have any other questions. Suerte!
