This adventurous family holiday takes you from Buenos Aires to Patagonia in the far south of South America. It’s a land of ice caps, glaciers jagged mountains and lakes at the tip of the Andes in Chile and Argentina. Explorations include a visit to the minty blue, cathedral-high Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina, and the wildlife-rich Torres del Paine National Park in Chile.


To the delight and awe of youngsters, the south is a true wilderness, where just a few rough roads cut through a frost-bitten landscape of glaciers, luminous lagoons, icy pinnacles and wind-strafed steppe. It is however readily accessible to all visitors, and our explorations are reassuringly comfortable for any older members of your party. You’ll also head north to the Atacama desert: the driest in the world.  Here the scenery has a moon-like quality, with wind-carved rocks, fizzing geysers and pretty oases.
