What's included in this trip
Patagonia Trekking SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Set within a circle of snow-capped mountains, Santiago is vibrant, artistic and gourmet - and the gateway to adventures in the snow, sea or desert.
Once a Chilean penal colony, Punta Arenas is now a vibrant port city with plenty of museums, historic sites and shops to keep you entertained. Seated on the shores of a beautiful lake, Puerto Natales is the gateway to Torres del Paine National Park and a great place to relax in one of the many quaint local restaurants.
Located in the wilds of Patagonia, Torres del Paine National Park is one of the world's most beautiful landscapes with glaciers, lakes and dramatic mountain peaks.
Surrounded by snowy-mountain peaks and endless grass plains, El Calafate is famed for its proximity to the Perito Moreno Glacier. One of the few advancing glaciers in the world, Perito Moreno Glacier is a glorious, electric-blue mass of ice that occasionally breaks dramatically into Lago Argentino.
Cosmopolitan, cultured and chic, Buenos Aires has European sensibilities with a fiery Latin heart. Discover colonial architecture, funky neighbourhoods, exceptional cuisine and a thriving nightlife.
