Enjoy face-to-face encounters with two of the world’s last great frontiers – Southern Patagonia’s majestic fjords and glaciers, and Torres del Paine’s stunning scenery – in a small group, limited to just 24 guests. Your 17-day adventure begins in vibrant Buenos Aires, to tour the city and enjoy a tango performance. Board the comfortable M/V Ventus Australis in Ushuaia for an extraordinary four-night cruise through the storied Tierra del Fuego archipelago: Cape Horn, Pia, Garibaldi and Águila glaciers, and Magdalena Island with its immense penguin colony.
After disembarking in Punta Arenas, travel to Torres del Paine National Park and enjoy three nights among its mountains, glaciers, and turquoise lakes. In Chile’s Lake District, visit Vicente Rosales National Park. Conclude in Santiago, Chile’s capital, to enjoy a meal in the home of a local family and see Valparaiso, a UNESCO World Heritage site. A two-day/three-night pre-tour option is available to those who wish to see Iguazu Falls.
