Discover the natural wonders of wild Patagonia on this nine-day Premium journey. Travel from Santiago through Torres del Paine National Park, take in stunning views of glaciers and icebergs and explore the incredible Perito Moreno Glacier – one of the few glaciers left in the world that isn’t shrinking! Along the way, keep your eyes open for sea lions, penguins, guanacos and pumas. Cruise past icebergs and glaciers and listen to the crack of the ice as it plunges into the waters below. This trip takes you into the heart of the drama and the calm of this vast wilderness with unique wildlife opportunities and striking natural landscapes.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Weather in Patagonia can be wild, so it's important to prepare for all elements. Rain, wind and extreme cold are all part of the adventure. As a result of this wild weather the hikes and activities within Torres del Paine National Park may not always be possible, but if you are prepared to be a little flexible, you will have a great time.

We had an amazing time travelling around Patagonia on our premium trip, the hotels made the experience feel very relaxed even though it is a packed full itinerary. A great way to see the main sights of Patagonia, with local knowledgeable leaders, and some great food!

The Patagonian Premium trip has been our fourth with Intrepid. We continue to be impressed with the experiences offered, the quality, professionalism, friendliness and knowledge of the tour leaders together with the small size of the tour groups. The quality of accommodation and meals provided were also of the highest quality. We have no hesitation in recommending Intrepid and their Patagonian Premium trip to others.

wonderful trip to visit Patagonian highlights. in 7 days has a good balance of sightseeing, light hiking, and enough down time to experience the food/culture of Patagonia. we added a half day visit to Tierra del Fuego national park, a must see when in Ushuaia

Patagonia is a unique & isolated place to visit. The Intrepid design of locations and activities were simply well designed without a moment wasted and your guide/tour manager, Tomás Revestido, helped make the trip far better than I expected with his local knowledge, sense of humor & proactive approach to helping everyone. The trip could not have been better. We had originally booked a Patagonia trip with a far more expensive operator than Intrepid, however they cancelled and we benefited, as Tomas & Intrepid were wonderful
