Detailed Description

Discover the beauty and wonder found at the edge of the earth on your 14-day tour of Argentina and Chile that will bring you through Buenos Aires, along the Patagonian Steppe, and cruising from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia. Your adventure will begin with your arrival in the capital of Argentina, and your private transfer will greet you at Ministro Pistarini International Airport in Buenos Aires and escort you to a hotel in the heart of the Recoleta district. The remainder of the day is yours to enjoy the vibrant life of the city streets, from the shops of Palermo to the tango performances at Rojo Tango.

The next morning, your guide will greet you at your hotel and lead you through an in-depth tour of the city’s history and diverse culture embodied in the more than 47 neighborhoods. In the evening, you will enjoy a gourmet meal in the celebrated tradition of Argentina’s cuisine. Travel to El Calafate the next day and land at Comandante Armando Tola International Airport. Your hotel is located on secluded acreage that overlooks the enchanting Patagonian Steppe. Enjoy an introductory trek in the afternoon to the shores of Flamingo Lagoon, named for the flock of flamingoes that call the water home.

Your guide will meet you in the lobby the following day for a remarkable land and tour of Glaciares National Park. Take a boat ride in front of Perito Moreno Glacier before delighting in an ice walk along the glacier’s surface. Traverse the galleries in the Glaciarium Museum and then visit the ice bar before crossing the Patagonian Steppe and over the Andean Mountain range to reach your luxurious hotel on the shores of the Señoret Channel in Chile. The following day, board your boat to explore the channels near Puerto Natales towards a view of the Serrano Glacier. Follow your guide the next day along the trail to the base of the Paine Towers and relish the pristine views and unspoiled landscape before reaching a lookout to the natural granite pillars.

Fly next from Puerto Natales to Punta Arenas in the south of Chile. You can take a brief tour of the city built around the 19th-century wool boom before boarding your luxury cruiser bound for Ushuaia, Argentina. Visit Ainsworth Bay and Tuckers Islets the next day for spectacular panoramas of the Strait of Magellan, along with close encounters with Magellanic penguins. The next day, take a zodiac for a closer look at Pia Glacier before traveling through Glacier Alley along Beagle Channel. Trek through the forests around Wulaia Bay and touch Cape Horn the next day, known as the edge of the South American continent.

Continue as you dock your boat at Ushuaia. You will have the remainder of the day at your leisure to unwind in the relaxed pace of the world’s southernmost city. Explore the streets or visit Estancia Harberton in Tierra del Fuego National Park. Fly next from Malvinas Argentinas International Airport to Buenos Aires, returning from the edge of the earth to the familiar energetic streets of Buenos Aires. Your private transfer will meet you at your hotel the next day and escort you to Ministro Pistarini International Airport for your flight home.
