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 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 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.
