Latin America – Patagonia

Region - Latin America - Patagonia

The 11-day journey takes place in Chile and Argentina’s Patagonia. Destinations en route include Santiago, Punta Arenas, Torres del Paine National Park, El Calafate and Buenos Aires.

A key highlight is visiting the Perito Moreno Glacier. There is an opportunity to walk on the glacier surface itself. An expert ice guide will accompany guests as the surface is very uneven.

The trip ends in seductive Buenos Aires. Home of the tango, the city, is energic and colourful.
