Patagonia is a gigantic expanse of space that spills over the Argentine-Chilean border and takes up hundreds of kilometers, and as such, it's not the kind of thing you can actually experience in a single day. The best way to see Patagonia in a day is to figure out what's most important to you — whether that be skiing, hiking, tasting local wines, or any of the many other varied activities you could pursue here — and plan accordingly. If you want to explore a local town with a bohemian vibe, start in El Bolsón. If you want the chance to set foot on a glacier or hear the awe-inspiring sounds of sheets of ice falling hundreds of feet, Calafate is where you should head. For stunning skiing in the winter and hiking and swimming in the summer, Bariloche is your best bet.
