The south of Patagonia offers some of the most breathtaking views you will ever experience. Act out that fantasy of being a National Geographic photographer by walking over the glaciers in El Calafate, and trekking through a landscape so pristine that UNESCO declared Los Glaciares National Park a world site. The starting point, the town of El Calafate, was originally a stop-over for the wool trade and now a picturesque gateway for tourists and other adventure seekers. Take in nature’s tranquility at one of our pre-arranged exclusive estancias and lodges, all of which provide nothing but the best in personalized service.
Around El Calafate you can admire the view of a glacial lake whilst sipping vintage wine or explore the surrounding countryside by horseback, 4x4, boat or balloon. Set yourself up for either a moderate ice-trek on the Perito Moreno glacier, or an advanced climb in the National Park, or head towards Mount Fitz Roy in the nearby El Chalten - a much sought after summit. Our experienced guides can help organize the hike, or merely be there to point out some of the rare species of flora and fauna, alternatively they can take you off-roading. If the ol’ ticker isn’t up for such activity, take a private plane over the stunning Lake Argentino, famous for its iridescent hues. This trip is a rare chance to traverse what has been hailed as the best of Argentina. Journeys are also available into Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile, an unspoiled 2,400 square kilometres of spectacular forests flanked by glaciers and ice blue lakes, and of course the picture-perfect sheer granite towers that make a challenging and coveted prize for climbers.
