Nandu: Peaks and plains of Patagonia
(based on two people sharing & excluding flights)
Overview & Highlights
A comprehensive and varied group tour including the Patagonian Andes of Chile and Argentina, with walking and wildlife spotting. Includes the volcano-dotted lake district, Torres del Paine, Perito Moreno glacier, Tierra del Fuego and Buenos Aires.
The Nandú Journey explores the beautiful, remote and sometimes savage scenery of Patagonia in southern Chile and Argentina, and the diverse human and wildlife landscapes of these two very varied countries.
From the gentle countryside, dense forests and snow-capped volcanoes of the Chilean lake district, the journey heads south to the bleak windswept scenery of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, crossing grassy plains, passing soaring granite peaks and creaking glaciers. By way of dramatic contrast you’ll savour life in the two capital cities; the elegant and European Buenos Aires, and cosmopolitan Santiago.

- Lake district: Petrohué Falls
- Lake district: Chiloe Island
- Torres del Paine: 2 full days in the park to explore by vehilcle and foot
- Los Glaciares National Park: guided walks

- Ushuaia: Tierra del Fuego National Park expedition
