Patagonia,
ARGENTINA & CHILE

Patagonia

Welcome to Patagonia, a land that many consider the end of the world. This magical and enchanting region of Southern Argentina and Chile was discovered by Hernando de Magallanes in 1520, and has challenged explorers, whale hunters, pirates and adventurers ever since. When you travel to Patagonia, enjoy its everlasting snowcapped mountains, ancient ice blue glaciers such as the Perito Moreno Glacier, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, emerald green lakes, sparkling rivers, heavenly green forests, majestic cliffs and fjords. Its awe-inspiring natural beauty makes it one of the most spectacular destinations on Earth and a must-see place in a lifetime.

Please note that the following itinerary is an example, as all of our journeys are custom-made.

Buenos Aires (2 nights)

Arrival in the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires after an overnight flight. Greeting by your personal host and private transfer to a 5-star hotel of your choice. Discover Buenos Aires on your private guided tour of the main sightseeing attractions, depending on your interests. Visit some of the city's many museums and enjoy exclusive access to the private homes and ateliers of esteemed local curators and artists. Explore amongst the typical fairs, antique markets, and take part in a private cooking class or wine tasting session with an expert sommelier. Enjoy a private tango lesson followed by a traditional tango show, or relax and appreciate a live musical performance in the famed Teatro Colon. Dine on authentic gourmet meals in the city's finest restaurants and cocktails in the many chic bars and lounges in the evenings.

El Calafate, Los Glaciares National Park (3 nights)

Fly to El Calafate in Southern Argentine Patagonia. Your host will greet you and escort you by private transfer across the valley to the luxurious Eolo Lodge. That afternoon, choose from among the many outdoor activities at your lodge including trekking, mountain biking and horseback riding through unique trails.

The following day, private transfer to the Glaciers National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and frozen wonderland of startlingly white and piercing blue ice encircled by snow-capped misty mountains. After a short boat ride across the bay, experience an ice-trekking excursion on the majestic Perito Moreno glacier crossing towering ice peaks, huge crevasses, turquoise blue creeks and icy lagoons with a specialized guide (you have the option to enjoy this excursion in private upon request). Later, after a picnic lunch facing the glacier, visit the spectacular catwalks and balconies offering breathtaking views of the Perito Moreno Glacier.

The next day, enjoy an exciting boating excursion through icebergs and turquoise water to witness the majestic Upsala Glacier and explore an authentic, century-old Patagonian estate located in the remote wilderness of Patagonia.

In the evenings, enjoy deliciously prepared gourmet dinners at Eolo Lodge, with spectacular views of the valley.

Torres del Paine (3 nights)

Depart El Calafate for a private 5-hour drive to Torres del Paine National Park across the immense Patagonian steppe. Along the way, enjoy a private guided visit of the innovative Glaciarium Museum to learn about the glaciers and the national park’s preservation efforts. You will arrive at Tierra Patagonia located outside of Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, truly one of the most spectacular places on Earth.

Upon arrival, relax after your journey as you enjoy the property's many amenities including the infinity pool overlooking the valley and mountains. As guests of Tierra Patagonia or Awasi Patagonia, you have the choice of a variety of activities in small groups (activities can be done in private if requested). You will have the opportunity to enjoy the incredible natural beauty of the park as well as its wildlife, which includes condors, guanacos and foxes, to name a few. As experts in the region, we recommend the hike to Paso D´Agostini (a 14km/8.5-mile hike with a photography tour by vehicle) and the “must-do” hike to the base of the Torres (19km/12-mile hike), which feature incredible lookout points along the way.

After a long day of discovery and exploration in the wilderness, unwind with a relaxing massage, gourmet meals and vintage Chilean wines as you recount your extraordinary adventures to your fellow travelers.

On your last morning, private transfer back to El Calafate where you will be assisted with boarding your return flight to Buenos Aires, arriving in time to catch your international flight home.
