Patagonia – a hidden paradise occupying the very edge of the world! Situated at the southernmost corners of both Argentina and Chile, it represents a unique blend of turquoise lakes, imposing mountain tops and lush vegetation. It is also home to one of the world’s most famous glaciers. This tour will enable you to experience a world unlike any other, one that you will be sure to remember for the remainder of your life!
Meeting at Buenos Aires airport, then transfer to the hotel. After settling in, a tour of one of the most beautiful cities on the southern hemisphere. The famous port of Boka, the tango at every turn, the old town on La Plata, Avenue 9. de Julio with its obelisk, the main square of Plaza de Mayo, huge parks, top restaurants and even better wine. 🙂 All in one place. Dinner. Overnight.

Breakfast. Transfer to El Chalten. Accommodation in the hotel. After our check-in, we’re going to explore the Argentinean part of Patagonia. Lightweight trek for 3 hours to Laguna Torre, from where you can see one of the most beautiful and hardest peaks – Cerro Torre. We spend some time on the shores of the lake, and then we go back to El Chalten. Free time, dinner and overnight.
Breakfast. Trek to the lake at the foot of the highest peak of Patagonia – Fitz Roy (3359m), Lagune de los Tres. This is somewhat a more demanding tour and the trek to the lake lasts about 4h. A turquoise lake in combination with dominant peaks will not leave you indifferent. Also, the entire Fitz Roy massif is used as the “Patagonia” logo, so if someone owns one of their products, they will be able to see it on the spot. Return back to El Chalten, then take the bus back to El Calafate. Overnight.

TORRES DEL PAINE – MIRADOR DEL TORRES
For the end of the trek we left the most recognizable symbol of the park and a place where you will surely remain breathless. After breakfast, we start by bus for Tores del Paine, and then on the ascent and after 1,5 hours, we arrive at the mountain chalet where we make a short break. We keep walking by observing the condors that compel us.
The final part of the trek is also the most challenging, but the prize that awaits us at the very top is incredible. You will definitely remember the view that will be provided from the Mirador del Torres point. Return back to the campsite, from where we board the bus and return to Puerto Natales. Dinner and overnight stay.
Note: Who does not want to take a trek can take a day trip to Punta Arenas, where we’ll board on a boat that drives to the island in the Magellanic Strait to see the Royal Penguins. Return to the hotel in the evening.
