Patagonia is a region of stark, haunting beauty in the southern reaches of Chile and Argentina just across the water from Antarctica. Ice fields, glacial lakes, narrow fjords and towering mountain massifs compile an astonishing display of natural attractions. This upmarket escorted group holiday takes you from Chile's capital to the wilderness landscapes of Torres del Paine.
Continue into Argentina to view the dynamic Perito Moreno glacier and on to Tierra del Fuego, where the mountainous interior is still in part unexplored. The island lies at the southernmost extreme of the Andes, the 'uttermost end of the earth'.
Finally let your hair down among the bright lights and Latin rhythms of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires. You'll stay in comfortable hotels and enjoy this exceptional region at a gentle pace. If you like to explore on foot there are some excellent hiking trails in the national parks.

Excellent as with the trip we did with you to Mexico last year. We have been to many countries in Latin America but only this trip and Mexico with JLA. I wish we had discovered JLA before.
