Detailed Description

This 14-day Patagonia adventure immerses you in the marvels of the untamed wilderness that spans the pampas, mountains, and glaciers of southern Chile and Argentina. Your unique accommodations and specialist guides will offer you a distinctive experience along famous trails, remarkable waterways, and vast ancient glaciers. From the Magellan Strait to Lake Argentino, you will traverse the trails of Torres del Paine, uncover the vistas of Mt. Fitz Roy, kayak alongside bobbing icebergs, and search for local wildlife.

Your Patagonia adventure will begin with your arrival in Santiago, where your private transfer will meet you at the airport. One night in Chile’s capital city will situate you in the comforts of your accommodations and provide you with enough time to enjoy the distinctive culture. You will then fly to Punta Arenas for one night.

Your arrival in Torres del Paine will provide four nights of exciting discovery in the pristine landscape known for its high-altitude plains and granite peaks. You will have guided tours along the hiking trails and a portion of the famous W trail. You will continue your exploration of the national park with a kayaking tour of Grey Lake for a different perspective of the water and glacier. Your glacier hike will reveal the texture of the frozen surface of the Southern Patagonia Ice Field.

The following day, you will have a scenic drive across the border into Argentina to the town of El Calafate.
