Andes Adventure

I had an amazing trip! A once in a lifetime experience, and memories I will cherish forever ... the entire experience from booking to trekking was exceptional, I couldn't expect higher standards.

Patagonia Parks & Wildlife

Patagonia is one of the most dramatic mountain regions in the world - a rugged land of huge granite peaks soaring above the grasslands and beech forest. Our journey includes viewing the magnificent Perito Moreno Glacier, cruising the Beagle Channel, visiting the Magellan penguin colony at Punta Tombo, bird watching in the Tierra del Fuego National Park and crossing the lakes beneath the soaring volcano Osorno. Our first few days are spent in Puerto Madryn, where the nearby Valdez Peninsula, a World Heritage site, teems with a multitude of wildlife including fur seals and sea lions. We then head to Ushuaia, the southern most city in South America, before continuing on to the national parks of Los Glaciares (Argentina) and Torres del Paine (Chile). Here we enjoy walks amongst granite peaks, whose reflections dominate the serene glacial lakes. The final stage of our journey involves a lakes crossing from Chile to Argentina, where we enjoy time in the picturesque town of Bariloche.
