Visit the highlights of Argentinian and Chilean Patagonia, exploring the spectacular scenery of Torres del Paine, Los Glaciares and Tierra del Fuego on foot.
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 and fragrant forests 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.
This is a region where immense natural beauty and rich wildlife combine to create an unforgettable experience. Your journey to the the end of the earth is punctuated with many fascinating sights and opportunities for walking among some of the world’s most outstanding scenery.
Depart the UK on your flight to Buenos Aires (some flights arrive this evening, others early the following morning).
Afternoon city tour visiting the main sights of Buenos Aires such as the Pink House, Parliament, La Boca, San Telmo and the exclusive Recoleta area.
Fly to El Calafate and transfer to Chalten, a colourful mountain village overlooking Los Glaciares National Park.
Walk along the river with fantastic views before arriving at your base camp. From here, ascend to the Laguna de los Tres, an isolated lagoon surrounded by glaciers.
