On this 14-day Patagonia adventure, you will discover Argentina’s enchanting capital city, and Patagonia’s most spectacular scenery and colossal ice fields, including Tierra del Fuego in Argentina and Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. Expert local guides will lead you on hikes and adventures, including an unforgettable trek on the top of the mighty Perito Moreno Glacier.
Your Patagonia adventure begins in Argentina’s cosmopolitan capital city. Enjoy a city tour and visit local barrios and the old tango districts of Monserrat, San Telmo, and especially La Boca, with its amazing street art, brightly painted houses and tango dancers performing in the streets. Witness the busiest areas – Puerto Madero, Retiro, and Plaza San Martin.
Explore the graceful neighborhood of Palermo, where the nightlife is as colorful as the streets, and visit the Recoleta district, one of the most fashionable parts of the city. In the evening, sit around a banquet table and relish a unique dining experience that blends exquisite food and wine, local culture, and social integration.
Transfer to Ushuaia, which claims the title of the world’s southernmost city, located in a wide bay on the southern coast of Isla Grande de Tierra on the Beagle Channel, between the Martial Range and the end of the world. Take a taxi to the old airport, Aeroclub, for a great view of the city, bay, harbor, and mountains. Visit the museum, the naval neighborhood and the cemetery.
Head out on a group adventure into Tierra del Fuego and discover some of Patagonia’s most magnificent scenery. Journey into the forest on a three-hour hike and jump into a kayak to paddle across the gorgeous Lapataia Bay towards the Beagle Channel. Embark on the Lakes Off-Road tour, with fellow-travelers, in a hardy Land Rover Defender driving through forests, across rivers, and alongside lake shores with glorious views.
Your next destination is the town of El Calafate, where you can walk through the Laguna Nimez Nature Reserve along a beautiful circuit taking you through shrublands and wetlands down to the lake’s edge. Visit Los Glaciares National Park on a full-day private tour.
Marvel at the mighty 200-foot-tall Perito Moreno Glacier and watch huge chunks of ice calve off and collapse into the waters of the lake below. Hop on a boat to cross the Rico Branch, cruising past the huge glacier, followed by the experience of a lifetime, a two-hour trek on top of the glacier with an expert guide.
Your Patagonia expedition continues with a road trip into Chile to Torres del Paine National Park, which is characterized by rushing rivers, ancient forests and glaciers, jagged peaks, freezing glacial lakes, waterfalls and wild windswept scrublands. The hiking trails here are without a doubt the most famous in Patagonia.
You can take a road trip into the heart of the park stopping at scenic overlooks and taking short hikes to natural landmarks. Enjoy a wonderful lake cruise to Grey Glacier, and a day-long hike to the spectacular Las Torres Base Lookout Point.
Head back into Argentina’s region of Patagonia for an afternoon and a night in El Calafate before flying back to Buenos Aires for some more time in the city. Your final adventure in Argentina will be a train ride to the traditional port of Tigre and a tour of its landmarks including the museum and the artisan market, Mercado de Frutos, followed by a private bike tour.
