Road Trip: Patagonia

Season 16, Episode 7 of 27

Zay Harding takes a journey along Ruta 40 by climbing Volcan Lanin, the highest peak in the area. Traveling down the Seven Lakes Drive, he passes through the Lake District in San Carlos de Bariloche, heads next to the former hippie colony of El Bolson, boards the La Trochita steam train, searches for Butch Cassidy's hideout in Cholila and drives on to Trevelin, a town founded by Welsh immigrants that maintains that culture. Zay then makes the long trek to Cueva de las Manos to admire its incredible rock art, reaches El Chalten for the spectacular view of Mount Fitz Roy before the final leg that takes him to the Cabo Virgenes lighthouse, the last stop on Ruta 40.
