Detailed Description

The wilderness meets the urban jungle on your 12-day Patagonia cruise and tour of Chile and Argentina. You arrive in Santiago, the capital of Chile. The city has a remarkable energy that embraces visitors and locals. Your private transfer meets you at the airport and takes you to the heart of the city to your luxury hotel, where you have the remainder of the day at your leisure. The next morning, your private transfer escorts you to the airport after breakfast for your flight to Punta Arenas, the southernmost Chilean city. Spend the remainder of the day exploring the avenues, coastline, and vibrant museums dedicated to the historic region.

The following day takes you northbound into the celebrated Torres del Paine National Park. On the way, your guide takes you to the Milodon Caves to explore the caverns, which houses remnants of extinct animals and ancient civilization. Continue out into the fabulous scenery of Torres del Paine National Park. Kayak down the rivers or hike up the mountains in search of the elusive Andean condor. Vacations in Patagonia aren't complete until you venture to the shores of Grey Lake to find the stunning Grey Glacier. Your private transfer escorts you to the port of Punta Arenas, where you board your luxury cruise.

The following day takes you on the Almirantazgo Sound and into Alberto do Agostini National Park. You can see glaciers hanging along the mountaintops and find a penguin colony on Tuckers Islet. Your cruise continues, traveling through Pia Fjord. You disembark the ship to explore the landscape and reach the edges of Pia Glacier before sailing through the remarkable Glacier Alley. The next adventure takes you through Nassau Bay and around the remarkable waters of Cape Horn National Park, where the Atlantic and Pacific meet. You can even find traces of the indigenous Yamana people inside the park.

You arrive in the world’s southernmost city of Ushuaia. Your private transfer takes you from the harbor to the airport for your flight to Buenos Aires. Once there, your guide leads you on a magnificent tour of Buenos Aires’s neighborhoods, known as barrios, each one known for its unique character. You venture outside of the city to experience the cowboy life at a celebrated ranch, known as an estancia. On your final day, your private transfer meets you after breakfast. You make your way to the airport, but instead of heading home, you could always extend your time in South America and visit Iguazu Falls or Cusco.
