Itinerary

Set out in Chile's sultry Santiago and enjoy free time to indulge in the city’s cafe culture and art scene. Perhaps take a cable car up to Cerro San Cristobal - on a clear day the view is breathtakingly beautiful.
After a flight to Punta Arenas, watch the Patagonian landscapes roll by on the bus journey to Puerto Natales.
Hike Patagonia's famous W Trek through dramatic granite pillars, vast glaciers, sparkling lakes, gushing waterfalls and herds of wild guanacos in dramatic Chilean Patagonia. At the end of each day, camp in the arms of nature and marvel at the wonder of this remote corner of the world.
Travel to El Calafate in Argentina to explore the awe-inspiring Perito Moreno Glacier. Admire the natural blue beauty of this imposing icy mass, one of the few glaciers that is advancing, not retreating. Photographers will enjoy capturing the epic scale and splendour of this gigantic glacier. Chunks of ice frequently break off and plummet into the water below, providing dramatic, memorable moments.
Enjoy a final night in Argentina's sophisticated and seductive Buenos Aires. Sample local cuisine, revel in the passionate atmosphere and admire the European-inspired architecture. This is a city rich in culture and charisma so don’t miss out on the opportunity for indulgence. Hit the elegant boutiques and pick up a fashionable reminder of Argentina, or try and catch locals dancing the tango - the quintessential representation of Argentinean flair.
