Overview & Highlights

An outdoor adventure with guided walking and wildlife spotting in Patagonia (Chile and Argentina), bookended by two cosmopolitan capitals, Santiago and Buenos Aires. Includes Chiloé Island, Torres del Paine and Perito Moreno glacier.

This is a short but sweet holiday perfect for anyone whose principal interest is to visit the beautiful, fascinating and varied region of southern Chile and Argentina. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty intermingled with a unique culture. From the historical island of Chiloé, wrapped in the mists of time and legends to a land of towering granite peaks, glacial lakes and huge expanses of windswept pampa, this is a magical part of the continent.

This tour gives the chance to explore cultures still barely touched by the outside world, with architecture, food and customs unlike anywhere else in the world. As you venture further south you can hike in some of the most spectacular natural scenery and witness vast glaciers in azul waters. At either end of the adventure are two magnificent cities for you to discover: the vital, cosmopolitan Chilean capital Santiago, and the quasi-belle époque European atmosphere in Buenos Aires.
