Hola! My name is Tomas and welcome to my blog on the amazing tulip fields of Trevelin. I was born in San Carlos de Bariloche in the north of Argentinian Patagonia. I grew up at the foot of Cerro Otto where I reveled in living around beautiful mountain landscapes. These days, I love traveling around my own country and capturing photos as it gives me great joy.
One incredible destination that I visited recently was the tulip fields of Trevelin. I had seen photos of this place on social media and although normally I’m not attracted to touristy spots, in this case I decided to give it a try because it’s something exclusive to Argentina. I have no regrets that I visited the tulip fields and I recommend this place to other travelers.
Visiting the Tulip Fields of Trevelin
Trevelin is a town surrounded by nature. It has a lot of countryside and animals. At places like these, when the light fades away at sunset, it becomes a magical scene. Trevelin is not a place that I recommend for shopping or gastronomy, rather it’s more about connecting with nature and enjoying the simple pleasures of the countryside.
The tulip field is located 14km from the town of Trevelin and it’s a privately owned place. You have to pay an entrance fee of around $800 ARS to get in. The tulips can only be seen during the month of October when the tulip flower blooms. I suggest going after October 15 to see the field at its best.
Overall, it was a unique experience to visit the tulip fields of Trevelin. Being able to see a field of this size with such beautiful flowers and everything being so aesthetically pleasing on the eye was awesome! This place is a dream come true for photographers. Harmony, which is something very important to my photographic style, is perfectly provided at this place.
I highly recommend going to the tulip fields near the closing time to be able to watch the sun go down over the flowers and with beautiful mountain scenery in the distance. Golden hour here is just spectacular!
Need to Know Before you Go
- Drive your own vehicle and explore the surroundings of Trevelin, as well as the tulip fields. If you have a van, you can sleep in the back (like I did).
- Go to the tulip fields at the end of the day when the sun is setting.
- Bring sunscreen and some food for an afternoon picnic – there are some very beautiful corners of green grass at the fields to rest at.
- Visit between October 15 – October 20 to see the most flowers possible!
