Explore the thrilling and unspoiled vastness of the Patagonia region on this journey to the end of the world. Starting in the lively capital city of Santiago, jump right into the fun of this tour by heading to Santa Rita Winery, where you’ll learn about the wine-making process and taste, blend, and bottle your own wine to take home with you! On your tour of Santiago you’ll be surprised at how a city of so many people can be so well kept and vibrant—a city packed with local parks, artwork at every turn, and European-style squares. On to Puerto Natales for a night before staying inside scenic Torres Del Paine National Park for two nights. Jagged peaks, glistening green waters, glaciers, and powerful falls set the stage. You’re sure to glimpse some of the wildlife here, like guanacos, foxes, birds, and if you’re lucky, the elusive puma. Cruise on Lago Grey to see famous glaciers and floating icebergs; visit the famous sites of Chile’s largest natural reserve; and even trek through a rugged and unspoiled rainforest to see cascading waterfalls on these two days of unspeakable scenic beauty.A highlight of this tour is undoubtedly your visit to El Calafate, home to Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the largest in the world and still advancing! You’ll have the chance to walk on catwalks overlooking the glacier and, with luck, you’ll witness glacier pieces calving into the waters below. You also experience the massive Upsala Glacier by boat—a different experience that allows you to marvel at the color and sheer masses of these glaciers. Follow this with a visit to an estancia (ranch) on the shores of Lago Argentino for lunch and your choice of activities, such as a 4-wheel drive tour or trekking. From El Calafate, descend to Ushuaia, the end of the world! Cruise Beagle Channel, watching for albatross, sea lions, and skuas while you marvel at the sheer idea of standing at this point on the globe. You also visit Martillo Island for a chance to see Magellan penguins. In Tierra del Fuego, an expert Naturalist will lead you around the delicate ecosystems of this southernmost national park. Head north to Buenos Aires, where you will conclude your Patagonian journey with exciting new adventures like a wine tasting with a local sommelier in a Cava setting and a visit to famous Recoleta Cemetery. And no visit to Buenos Aires would be complete without a lesson in the sizzling, sensuous Tango!
