Patagonia Discovery Trek (Argentina to Chile)

10 DAYS from US$4,690 per person

Our Patagonia Discovery Trek will take you to the wilderness of Chile and Argentina, home to world-famous national parks, pale blue glacial lakes, curious wildlife and mesmerising glaciers. In small groups of 4 to 14 travellers, and accompanied by our naturalist and expert guide, you will experience the best of Patagonia: eagles and condors will put on a show gliding above soaring ice-tipped peaks, native orchids and songbirds will complement your walks through pristine beech forests, you will get up-close with iceberg-calving glaciers and peaceful grazing guanacos will welcome you as you walk through the pampas. Welcome to Patagonia!

LEVEL 2 - Moderate Hiking Style
Some difficult terrain. Multiple consecutive +5 hour hiking days. May be impacted by high altitude. Good fitness, health and hiking experience necessary.

Map & Itinerary

Days 1 to 2 – Los Glaciares National Park & El Chalten, Argentina

Arrive in El Calafate, gateway to Los Glaciares National Park, home of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Afternoon at leisure to explore the town or spot waterbirds along Lake Argentino, before meeting our guide for trip briefing. Next day, we depart early to visit the breathtaking Perito Moreno Glacier and later drive to El Chalten in the heart of the park.

Days 3 to 4 – Fitz Roy & Cerro Torre Base Camps

Crystal clear streams, beech forests in bloom, native orchids and birdsong guide you up to the climbers’ base camps of Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. Enjoy dramatic rock spires piercing the Patagonian icecap, while Andean condors and eagles soar above.

Days 5 to 6 – Puerto Natales, Torres Del Paine National Park & Serrano River

Drive across the pampas to Puerto Natales on the shores of Seno Última Esperanza, renowned for its king crab and gateway to Torres del Paine National Park. Sleep well, then board a boat to the Balmaceda Glacier, switching to Zodiacs for a glorious trip along the Serrano River to Torres del Paine.

Days 7 to 8 – Torres Del Paine National Park

Iceberg-strewn, pale blue glacial lakes, breathtaking pale granite slabs and “Towers of Paine”. Our day walks are calibrated to the group’s fitness, with many of the park’s highlights requiring a 6-7 hour, round trip walk, well worth the effort.

Day 9 to 10 – Punta Arenas, Chile

We drive along the Patagonian steppes, with spectacular views of the Andes, to arrive in Punta Arenas in the afternoon. On our final day, carry on with your own travel arrangements or, for the ultimate adventure, join one of our Antarctic voyages.

Our tour guide Lelia was definitely one of the very best tour guides my wife and I have ever encountered. Very knowledgeable, highly organised, very caring, personable and able to relate to everyone as an individual.
Trevor White - Patagonia Trek, 2015
Lelia is an excellent tour guide because of her passion, knowledge and insight about Patagonia and Argentina. She taught us so much about the Patagonian environment and so much about Argentinian history, culture and life.
John Stephenson - Patagonia Trek, 2015
We had a great little group and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, it was great. Thank you.
