Overview & Highlights

A comprehensive exploration of Patagonia in Argentina and Chile. Stay in comfortable hotels and set out on a huge medley of excursions, some more active than others; the choice is yours. Your Patagonia trip begins and ends in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires.

This comprehensive Patagonia highlights holiday starts and ends in Buenos Aires. Patagonia in the far south is a land of ice caps, glaciers, jagged mountains and lakes at the tip of the Andes in Chile and Argentina. This adventure includes a visit to the minty blue, cathedral-high Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina, and Torres del Paine National Park, Chile’s large and well-established reserve. The holiday includes the magnificent Lakes Crossing - along the ancient trade route' through the Andes linking Chile and Argentina, on a clear day one of the most exquisite journeys on the continent.

The south is, in parts, a true wilderness, where just a few rough roads cut through a frost-bitten landscape of Patagonian glaciers, luminous lagoons, icy pinnacles and wind-strafed steppe, Patagonia is nevertheless readily accessible to visitors. While the lake district in northern Patagonia has lakeside resorts and many visitors in summer, there are little seen fairyland forests and lonely roads carving their way through a virgin landscape. It explores the indigo lakes, ancient woodland and snow-capped volcanoes of the lake district.

If you love the sound of this trip, but have elements you'd like to switch in or out, you can take a look on our Design My Trip page to create a bespoke travel itinerary for your Patagonia Glacier tour.
