One of the most scenic flights there is?

Hello IFC,
Yesterday I decided to fly from El Calafate in southern Argentina to Ushuaia, famous for being a base in the Falklands War. @Suhas you might recognise the name from the Top Gear Patagonia special.

I know this is one of @Charlieab29 and @Igor_M’s favourite routes to fly and after flying it I most certainly see why! Such a unique route with absolutely stunning scenery.

El Calafate has always been a favorite of mine! And yes, that Top Gear Special was a fun one, the specials were always the best. I also went out for some shots there in January.

Glad you enjoyed it Hugh, that’s exactly why flying these routes that most other people don’t is much more interesting. So many beautiful hidden gems in this world!
