We are proud to introduce our new series of Patagonia Adventures,
which combine the advantages of independent travel with the convenience
of small group tours. The trips visit both Argentina and Chile,
and the 12-day Adventure adds a beautiful 4-day 3-night expedition
cruise from Ushuia to Punta Arenas around Cape Horn.
1st Day: Upon arrival in Buenos Aires, Argentina,
you are met and transferred to your hotel. In the afternoon,
tour the City, including the Plaza de Mayo and the "Pink
House," the colorful neighborhoods and the famous cemetery
where Evita is buried. In the evening, sample one of the City´s
hundreds of fabulous restaurants, and take a walk in the pedestrian-only
Calle Florida and watch the street vendors and performers.
2nd Day: Transfer to the domestic airport for
your flight to Ushuaia, the southernmost city on the world. In
the afternoon, take a ride on the historic Train to the End of
the World, arriving in Tierra del Fuego National Park, with its
beech forests, lakes and myriad birds, including black-chested
buzzard eagles and Andean condors.
3rd Day: Today is spent sailing through the
Beagle Channel, viewing marine mammals and birds, and enjoying
the views of the beautiful snow-capped peaks at the end of the
4th Day: Fly to Punta Arenas, Chile, transferring
to a bus to Torres del Paine National Park. At the hotel, enjoy
dinner and a view of the towering peaks.
5th Day: Spend the day on a full-day excursion
around the park. Declared a World Biosphere Reserve in 1978,
the park is famous for its spectacular granite spires, beautiful
lakes and incredible glaciers.
6th Day: Today you travel by bus back over
the border to El Calafate. Afternoon at leisure to explore the
town and stroll along the lake.
7th Day: Visit Los Glaciares National Park
and the Perito Moreno glacier, the largest glacier in Patagonia.
You'll view the glacier from the "catwalks," then take
a short boat ride to the edge of the Glacier, where you'll don
crampons and embark on our mini-trek right on the glacier. At
the end of the trek, you'll sample a drink chilled with 10,000-year-old
ice right from the glacier.
8th Day: Today you board a large comfortable
boat to view many more glaciers and the massive ice fields left
by calving glacier Upsala in Onelli Bay. You will view the Spegazzini
glacier, and another side of the Perito Moreno Glacier. With
luck, you´ll witness the spectacular calving of a glacier
as the towering mass of ice crashes into the water.
9th Day: Fly from El Calafate back to Buenos
Aires, and spend the rest of the day at leisure shopping or exploring
more of this great city. In the evening you may want to take
in an optional tango show.
10th Day: Transfer to the airport for your
flight home, bringing plenty of photos and memories of this wonderful
land near the southern tip of the world.
