About

Recommended for:
Activity adventure | Exploration cruise | History & culture | Wildlife

Taking in Patagonian’s highlights both Chilean and Argentinian, you’ll centre on an all-inclusive cruise that apes Darwin in weaving past creaking icebergs to reach penguin islands and condor peaks. Then, an all-inclusive stay in South America’s first luxury tented camp will see you uncover the geological drama of Torres del Paine on a range of included excursions before a private tour showcases the colossi of the Glaciers National Park. But, you won’t be without your luxuries, with included gourmet dining, private transfers, open bars and tours of Buenos Aires.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Depart UK

Begin your trip in style with complimentary airport lounge access before your overnight flight to Argentina.

Days 2-4
Buenos Aires

After touching down, a private transfer will bring you to your central hotel; just across from the leafy plaza home of the Beaux-Arts San Martín Palace, its rooms are among Buenos Aires' largest. You’ll then enjoy a private city tour. There’s artsy La Boca with its brightly painted houses and the pretty colonial architecture of San Telmo before you reach Recoleta’s grand cathedrals and cemeteries. End with the city’s bohemian markets and the Buenos Aires Design Centre before enjoying a day at leisure and a cabaret show at Faena Hotel. You’ll witness Argentine tango at its best, accompanied by a live orchestra, dinner and a selection of local wines.

Stay: Emperador Hotel, Buenos Aires, Argentina (Superior)

Meals: B

Day 5
Ushuaia

On day five, you’ll bookend your flight down to Ushuaia with private transfers, arriving in Patagonia’s remote south to spectacular mountain views from your architect-designed accommodation. Here, contemporary rooms, fine-dining restaurants and infinity hot tubs look out to the alpine meadows and jagged peaks that frame the Beagle Channel. You might also want to take advantage of this adventure sports hub; there’s everything from skiing and hiking to sailing and even scuba diving. Or, head out of town on a narrow-gauge, steam railway trip through the surrounding mountains.

Stay: Los Cauquenes (Deluxe)

Meals: B

Days 6-8
Australis Cruises

You’ll board your adventure cruise to a cocktail reception, settling in to enjoy all-inclusive gourmet meals and an open bar – a true contrast to your wild route. You’ll weave through narrow channels, passing great calving icebergs to reach Cape Horn, the very southern tip of the continent. Along the way, you’ll stop for end-of-the-world lighthouses, ancient indigenous settlements, historic radio stations and hikes into wooded mountains. A visit to a cold rainforest and a Zodiac landing at the base of a colossal glacier are particular highlights. It’s all brought to life by expert guides, onboard lectures and the presence of everything from whales and dolphins to condors and penguins.

Stay: MV Stella Australis (Superior)

Meals: B L D

Days 9-11
Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

This morning, you’ll visit either Magdalena or Marta island, the remote home of a penguin and sea lion colony respectively. You’ll then arrive into Punta Arenas where a private transfer – perhaps stopping at a penguin colony on the way – will bring you to your luxury yurt accommodation in Torres del Paine National Park. Over the next three days, you’ll enjoy a full range of included excursions, from hikes to the park’s hidden waterfalls, famed glaciers and 2km-high granite pillars to kayaking, fishing and drives to picturesque lake beaches. Each day, you’ll return to private-terrace views over lakes and mountains along with all-inclusive gourmet dining and open-bar indulgences.

Stay: Patagonia Camp, Nr Torres del Paine National Park (Superior)

Meals: B L D

Days 12-13
El Calafate

Your next included transfer will see you to El Calafate, the small-town gateway to the magnificent Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. Here, you’ll stay in a spa-furnished retreat, complete with views of Andean peaks and Lago Argentino’s great shimmer. The next day, on a private tour, you’ll visit its most impressive sight – the monumental, 96-square-mile Perito Moreno Glacier. A scenic drive past skittish deer and elusive puma will bring you right up to its 230-foot high face where you can watch as house-sized chunks crack off naturally formed ice bridges.

Stay: Esplendor El Calafate (Superior)

Meals: B

Day 14
Buenos Aires

Your flight to Buenos Aires, again sandwiched by private transfers, will see you back to the Emperador Hotel for a final night. It’s the opportunity to sample a last Argentine barbecue or perhaps book onto a wine tour to taste your way through the country’s finest varietals. There’s also some time to relax in Parisian sidewalk cafés and the city’s green parks. It’s no wonder that Buenos Aires has inspired so much art, showcased in street murals and world-class galleries alike.

Stay: Emperador Hotel, Buenos Aires, Argentina (Superior)

Meals: B

Days 15-16
Depart Buenos Aires

A final private transfer will see you to the airport for your overnight flight back to the UK.
