Backpacking free travel is more than just a Travel Agency. It also works as a functional information center for each visitor, a gathering point to exchange experiences and information with local people and other travelers.
“BAFT Backpacking Free Travel, Independent Travelers” is made by young tourism professionals who understand that each visitor is also someone interested in getting to know the place where we live: Patagonia, Argentina, South America.
Having this as the main concept, we offer the traveler a wide variety of options according to each one’s availability and possibilities, only after having a brief interview to get to know their needs while sharing a cup of coffee or perhaps a mate.
