Active Patagonia: Classic treks in Argentina and Chile

14 days from £3,340pp

(based on two people sharing & excluding flights)

Chile / Argentina / Patagonia

  • Fitz Roy

Overview & Highlights

Low-altitude trekking through Patagonia's glaciated landscapes in Torres del Paine National Park (Chile) and the Fitz Roy massif in Los Glaciares National Park (Argentina) to discover the pinnacles of the region's natural scenery.

Patagonia is a vast and scarcely-populated wilderness of outstanding natural beauty which straddles the Andean border of southern Chile and Argentina. On this holiday you will savour stretches of the 2 most famous hikes, the W Trek in Chile and the M Trek in Argentina. The hikes are quite challenging:  walk for several hours over tricky terrain, sometimes steep. Good weather can’t be guaranteed in a region of fast-changing climatic conditions, but in the southern summer – November to March – you have a good chance of catching some clear, sunny days.

In the Patagonia region of both countries there’s a well-developed and expanding infrastructure to cater for the domestic and international demand for outdoor adventures, especially trekking. It is a primeval land of towering granite peaks, frontier-bending expanses of windswept pampa pitted with sparkling glacial lakes, and a huge domed sky which can be egg-shell blue calm or torn apart by angry clouds.

  • Sunrise over the Galapagos from top deck on my first morning on the boat, utterly stunning!

  • Everything was memorable, a part of the world we've wanted to travel to for a long time. Views of Torres del Paine from the flight between Santiago and Punta Arenas were unexpectedly fantastic as the weather was so good and the tour leader had managed to get us all seats of the right side of the plane so we could enjoy them. Simply travelling over these vast expanses of land was amazing.

  • The Iguacu Falls were spectacular and most likely the most impressive Falls I will ever see. We were absolutely spellbound by the magnitude, scale and layout. Obviously, Machu Picchu takes your breath away. Nature and man-made wonders at their best!
    The trip surpassed our expectations and I have already recommended Journey Latin America to friends and even to people I talked to on a bus in Machu Picchu, one of whom was from the U.S.A.

  • Our most memorable moments were the views in Rio, the Iguassu Falls, the initial impressions of La Paz, Copacabana and Puno (especially the hotel in Puno with its views of the Lake), the Andean Explorer and Sacred Valley train journeys and the magnificence of the Andes and Macchu Picchu.

  • Several stand out moments; sierra maestra; tobacco farm walk; cocoa farm visit; catamaran trip; sancti spiritu walk round; evening meals outside for two weeks; eco farm visit in vinales; visiting the school in santa domingo was interesting as was the brief stop at el cobre between santiago and bayamo.
    Excellent tour which is a great way to see a lot of different parts of cuba in a short time.
