Patagonia: Argentine Glacier & Chilean Eco-Camp

An active escape to pair with our Antarctic or Chilean excursions.

DESCRIPTION

Patagonia’s wilderness is so renowned there’s an outdoor clothing brand named after it. This trip introduces you to the heaving Perito Moreno Glacier, then heads for an eco-camp in Torres del Paine National Park where we'll conquer some of the region's most rigorous treks. You'll be rewarded daily with unrivalled flora, fauna, and vistas. Please note: this trip can be booked on its own, as a grand finale to our Antarctica Gay Expedition, or to kick off our Chile Grapes, Grit and Stargazing tour. It’s an active itinerary, so you should be physically fit. For a more laid-back visit to Patagonia, consider our Argentine Glaciers & Estancia Cristina excursion.

ITINERARY:

Hola! Welcome to Argentina! Many of you have just disembarked our Antarctica Gay Expedition. There are no activities planned until our welcome meeting at 6PM, followed by dinner.

Our day begins with a private tour of Perito Moreno Glacier – one of Patagonia’s premier tourist attractions. It covers 250 sq km (97 sq mi), and is one of a few advancing glaciers (most are receding). We'll enjoy a boxed lunch on site. After that, settle in for a long drive to Eco-Camp…our home for the next three nights.

Today we'll rise early and drive towards the Western Lakes, enjoying views of the mountainscape. Then we'll enjoy a Lake Pehoé boat ride and trek to Grey Glacier, one of the region's most scenic destinations. Today's hike is fairly difficult but certainly achievable. We'll reconvene back at our Eco-Camp for a gourmet dinner.

We hope you're feeling industrious because today we're conquering Tower Base Trek: 22km/14 mi uphill. This is a challenging trek but we'll be rewarded with life-changing views of Patagonia's glorious landscape. After a full day, we'll enjoy yet another extraordinary dinner at Eco-Camp.

After breakfast, you’ll be transferred to Punta Arenas, where you can check in to the hotel and freshen up. Enjoy the amenities and rest your weary feet after the past few days in Patagonia. We'll convene in the evening for our Farewell Dinner.

It’s the last day of our tour, with no activities scheduled. You’ll be transferred to Punta Arenas airport, where you can catch your flight home, or to Santiago for our Chile Grapes Grit & Stargazing tour.
