Beginning in Ushuaia, the most southerly city in the world, and home to the beautiful Tierra del Fuego National Park, we head north to explore the remote Southern Patagonian region. Visit Torres Del Paine National Park, famous for its granite pillars, lakes and mountains and Los Glaciers National Park, home to some of the world’s most stunning ice formations. Be amazed glaciers, mountains, forests and lakes abounding in this truly captivating part of the world.

Days 1–5: Your tour begins with a bang in Ushuaia, the most southerly city in the world. Take a cruise on the Beagle Channel to view wildlife and learn of the regions history. Explore Tierra Del Fuego National Park and arrive at ’the end of the road’: Lapatia Bay. Visit a King Penguin colony on the way to Cerro Sombrero. We arrive to the port town of Punta Arenas and enjoy a unique dinner prepared by a talented local chef who uses unusual local flavours. Enjoy some time in Puerto Natales before we continue on to Torres Del Paine, South Americas finest National Park.

Days 9–11: We arrive in El Calafate, and the Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, our base visit the impressive Perito Moreno glacier, one of the earths most dynamic and accessible ice fields. Visiting the glacier we can witness from a series of walkways huge chucks of ice breaking free from the face of the glacier and crashing with a mighty roar into the water. A boat trip along the face of the glacier gives us the opportunity to admire its impressive height that reaches, at points, to 100 meters from the water level and stretches 5 kilometers from edge to edge.
