Overview & Highlights

Explore Patagonia's far-flung wilderness at an accessible price. Contrast the energy of two of Latin America’s greatest capitals with the dominance of nature among glaciers, lakes and mountains at the southernmost end of the continent.

Patagonia is a vast and scarcely-populated wilderness of outstanding natural beauty which straddles the Andean border of southern Chile and Argentina. 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. 

This adventurous and economical private holiday will introduce you to this most extraordinary landscape. It's a trip where you get under the skin of the countries: in Torres del Paine you sleep in fixed tented domes. The trip is book-ended by a few days in the two cosmopolitan capitals, Santiago and Buenos Aires.
