Experience Patagonia's most stunning panoramas by vehicle, by boat and during spectacular hikes. What makes this trip different from our Patagonia Hiking trip is a much greater focus on wildlife, in search of feral horses, the elusive puma, humpback whales and penguins. Our 18-day active adventure travels through one of the planet's wildest spaces.

We begin by exploring the impressive capital of Buenos Aires, before flying to El Calafate. Enjoy three nights in the Fitz Roy region of Glacier National Park hiking through gorges, alongside glaciers and through forests to approach the famed Mount Fitz Roy. Explore Glacier National Park, (UNESCO) and see Perito Moreno Glacier up close, one of the greatest natural attractions in the Americas.

Crossing into Chile, we drive to Torres del Paine National Park to enjoy hikes up to the viewpoint to take in the awesome granite spires of the Blue Towers. Enjoy superb hiking and wildlife.

From Punta Arenas, our journey includes excursions in search of whales and penguins before returning to Punta Arenas, where our journey concludes.
