Patagonia is home to mythical landscapes and unbelievable wildlife. The cities of Buenos Aires and Santiago emanate South American passion and European lifestyle. Mountains are ever-present. Oceans collide. Experience the best of urban life and natural wonders on your 12-day Patagonia tour to Argentina and Chile. The journey begins with your arrival in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The city is abundant with tradition and bustling with life. Your private transfer guides you into the city, where you enjoy an immersive evening at a tango and dinner show.

The following morning, your guide meets you at the hotel and leads you through the stunning neighborhoods of the city on a walking tour. Fly south to the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia. Visit the protected lands of Tierra del Fuego National Park before boarding a luxurious cruise ship, weighing anchor in the evening to sail along the Patagonian waterways. You then travel around legendary Cape Horn, exploring the grounds of Cape Horn National Park, and hiking along the trails of Wulaia Bay. The next day takes you into the Agostini Sound via the Magdalena Channel. Disembark the ship to visit the sensational ice wall of Aguila Glacier.

When the ship departs, you have an exceptional view of glaciers spreading across the landscape. Begin the following morning with a visit to Magdalena Island, to see the thriving penguin colony. Once in Punta Arenas, you disembark the ship and settle in the Chilean city. Your private transfer escorts you north into the treasured Torres del Paine National Park. The next couple days are yours to explore the splendor of the Paine Massif, azure lakes, and glistening glaciers as you please, allowing you to undertake the finest Patagonia tours from Chile. You could even trot across the plain on horseback.

Next, you return to Punta Arenas for your flight to Santiago, Chile. Your guide leads you on a fabulous tour to immerse yourself in the city’s history and vibrant culture, from Pablo Neruda to 17th-century buildings. On your final day, your private transfer meets you at the hotel and escorts you to the airport for your flight home.
