Foreign Travel Advice

This trip links up two of the most cosmopolitan cities of South America, Santiago and Buenos Aires and allows us to explore the real wilderness of the two countries of Argentina and Chile - it's all about Patagonia. It's a journey for lovers of the outdoors, with plenty of camping in national parks of outstanding natural beauty, and the chance to trek, climb, bike, and horse ride through some breathtaking scenery. Perhaps the highlight will be the 5 day visit to Torres del Paine National Park, where there will be plenty of time to trek the W Walk; or maybe riding or trekking around the magnificent Los Glaciares National Park around the dramatic peaks of Mount Fitz Roy will be your highlight but there is so much more, with Gauchos, horses, the spectacular Lake District with its twin towns of Bariloche and Pucon or the penguins and right whales of the Peninsula Valdes. All the while we are criss-crossing the frontiers of Chile and Argentina before heading north, away from the windswept wilds and into the Pampas, the hot, dry heartland of Argentina and the great Salsa city of Buenos Aires. We are partnered with the Torres del Paine Legacy Fund, who work to enhance the long-term health of Torres del Paine and its surrounding communities.
