WHY WE LOVE PATAGONIA

Patagonia is a vast and empty wind-swept triangle at the southern-most tip of South America – the continent’s Southern Frontier. Awash with breathtaking landscapes and filled with expansive lakes, arid plateaus, mighty glaciers, snow-capped mountains and ethereal forests.

Patagonia is the outdoor adventurer’s playground and wilderness lover’s paradise. Horse riding, white water rafting, mountain biking, fly fishing, hiking, volcano-climbing and fjord cruising are all on offer and destination highlights include the breathtaking Puerto Moreno Glacier, the lonely island of Tierra del Fuego and the towering peaks of Torres del Paine National Park. Cruising from the Valdez Peninsular one can spot southern right whales, orcas, elephant seals and sea lions and an expeditionary voyage from Cape Horn takes you to the very ends of the earth, dwarfed by the primal magnitude of nature. Patagonia is truly a wonder of the world.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Rather than dividing Patagonia ‘Argentinean Patagonia’ and ‘Chilean Patagonia’ it is more logical to think of the region in terms of the north and the south. Covering a great longitudinal range, the landscapes and experiences of both Chilean and Argentinean Patagonia are far better defined by geography than by nationality.

Passing between the two countries is straightforward and allows you to enjoy a bespoke journey tailored to your interests and sense of adventure, taking in the very best of this wildly beautiful region without compromise.
