Adventurous Argentina & Chile trip highlights

  • This 11-day Adventurous Argentina & Chile trip takes you to some of Patagonia’s most gorgeous and off-the-beaten-path locations, where adventure awaits every step of the way. 
  • Start your trip in Santiago, where you’ll spend the evening resting up after your long flight. The following day, you’ll set out with your private guide to explore Valparaiso. Spend the day getting lost in alleyways full of street art, drinking craft beer and cocktails, or learning about this bohemian town's past poets and history. 
  • Next, it’s back to the airport for your flight to Patagonia and the breathtaking landscapes of Torres del Paine National Park. With views of the Towers, it will be hard not to spend a day hiking to this magical spot from your lodge. Spend three days traversing this remote corner of the world. 
  • You continue by road to El Calafate, keep your eyes open for guanacos and foxes as you drive! Visit Perito Moreno Glacier, where you’ll have the opportunity to walk on glaciers and catch the ice fields from the deck of a boat. Explore the area by foot, horseback or Jeep, making the most of your South American adventure. 
  • Take a boat to a private Estancia that managed to survive the harsh winters of Patagonia. Hike through fossil canyon, ride horseback along the dramatic mountain landscapes or go for a jeep ride. Spend the evenings with a glass of wine around the fire, before heading off to your room for the night.
  • Fly to Buenos Aires for the final night of your trip. Stay in a boutique hotel in the trendy Palermo neighborhood. Enjoy a closed-door dining experience focused on traditional cuisine and local wine.
  • Head to the airport in time for your flight home.
