Patagonia: Wonderland at the End of the World

Patagonia has retained the mystique of the frontier. It is a place of great icefields and soaring snow-capped peaks headlined by the Torres del Paine National Park and the Perito Moreno glacier. Discover these awe-inspiring landscapes during your choice of easy to challenging walks and treks. As you walk from our bases in Argentinian and Chilean Patagonia, see spiky peaks veiled in clouds, endless steppes where solitary Guanacos keep watch from hilltops, electric-blue lakes, and the two great icefields – remnants of the last ice age – which spill out of the Andes as impressive glaciers.

Your adventure begins in cosmopolitan Argentina for a guided exploration of Buenos Aires and its alluring confluence of French, Italian and Latin character.

A flight south to brings you to “the uttermost part of the earth,” as described by English travel writer Bruce Chatwin. Here in Argentine Patagonia’s El Calafate area, the dynamic Perito Moreno glacier looms over massive Lake Argentino, and frequently sends fractured chunks of ice into the lake’s turquoise waters.

Continue to Chilean Patagonia and Torres del Paine National Park. During each day here, take a scenic walk or challenging trek past Lake Grey, Pingo River, or the ‘Passage of the Winds,’ which leads to epic Base Torres with a view of the iconic three granite ‘towers’ of Torres del Paine.

The journey concludes in Chile’s revitalized capital, Santiago where a newfound stability is making it one of the most attractive cities in South America for residents and visitors.

Expert trekking guides work with your Tour Manager to ensure a safe, educational, and inspiring adventure at the End of the World.
