No malls, no Internet, no PlayStation. No worries. Patagonia may be vast and nearly deserted, but it’s bursting with things to do. Hop in a catamaran and coast past icebergs and the glaciers one day, grab a sweater (and ice-cleats) and walk across one the next. Ride with bona fide Argentine cowboys all day and snack on delicious barbecued asado at dinner. Kayak, boulder and rappel under the watchful eye of experts in Nahuel Huapi National Park. And just like every B&R With the Kids trip, the whole family gets to enjoy the fun with ample time together and apart. For a place famed for its emptiness, the days sure seem full.
