We begin our tour in the picturesque seaside city of Ushuaia, the most southerly city in the world, and will enjoy a lovely meal at one of Ushuaia’s great port side seafood restaurants. Enjoy a days walking in the Tierra del Fuego National Park and a cruise on the Beagle Channel before we set off north and into Chile. Crossing the Straights of Magellan we arrive into Punta Arenas from where we will visit the Seno Otway penguin colony, home to approximately 3000 breeding pairs.
Torres Del Paine National Park
Next we arrive at Torres Del Paine National Park and will enjoy our first night camping on the edge of the picturesque Lake Pehoe. Under the constant watch of the towering granite peaks and circling condors this will be our base to explore what is to many South Americas finest national park. We spend four nights inside Torres Del Paine National Park and are able to enjoy wonderful day hikes through emerald forests, to magnificent glaciers, along alpine rivers and lakes, with picturesque mountain vistas, while in this area of unparalleled beauty.
Argentina - El Calafate
Leaving this remarkable region we cross at a remote border post into Argentina and arrive in El Calafate, and the Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. This charming town is our base to visit the impressive Perito Moreno glacier, one of the earths most dynamic and accessible ice fields. Visiting the glacier we can witness from a series of walkways huge chucks of ice breaking free from the face of the glacier and crashing with a mighty roar into the water. A boat trip along the face of the glacier gives us the opportunity to admire its impressive height that reaches, at points, to 80 meters from the water level and stretches 5 kilometres from edge to edge.
A short drive around Lake Argentina brings us to El Chalten, nestled quietly under the imposing peaks of Mount Fitzroy, which is named after the captain of the Beagle, who navigated Darwin’s Expedition of the area in 1834. We will take a boat trip across the lake to the Viedma Glacier, the largest in Argentina, where we will have the opportunity to explore ice caves and take a walk atop this mighty ice sheet. Spend some time hiking in the region before your tour concludes.
