In some ways Argentina feels surprisingly familiar, especially Buenos Aires, with its strong European heritage. However, the vast open spaces and stupendous mountains of Patagonia are very different to the busy city and put you back in touch with nature.

The foothills of the Patagonian Andes offer vast, wild and beautiful spaces. The region's mountains, glaciers, fragrant forests an exuberant wildlife are best explored on foot, in direct contact with nature. On this walking holiday we take in the highlights of Southern Patagonia, including Torres del Paine and Tierra del Fuego.
