Our recommended activities and highlights

Experience frontier living
El Calafate

Experience frontier living

Gaucho (cowboy) culture is alive and well in Patagonia. Spend a couple of nights on a working estancia (ranch) and get stuck in with shearing sheep and long rides through the open country on horseback.

See glaciers in action
Glaciers National Park

See glaciers in action

The Southern Patagonian Ice Field straddles the border between Argentine and Chilean Patagonia, feeding most of the region’s glaciers. Visit Argentina’s Glaciers National Park to witness Perito Moreno calving building-sized blocks of ice or, better still, go for a guided hike on the ice itself.

Visit Chaltén and Fitz Roy
El Chaltén

Visit Chaltén and Fitz Roy

Chaltén and Fitz Roy

Hot on the heels of nearby Torres del Paine, Argentina’s Fitz Roy Range (inside Glaciers National Park) is a contender for the most impressive hiking landscapes. The country around El Chaltén is truly jaw-dropping, with options for self-guided day hikes or multi-day camp-outs.

Hiking Torres del Paine
Torres del Paine National Park

Hiking Torres del Paine

Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park is renowned for its trekking and hiking, with excellent infrastructure for day hikes and multi-day treks. While the popular W and Circuit treks steal all the glory, other lesser-trafficked routes are available.

Birdwatching in Patagonia
Torres del Paine National Park

Birdwatching in Patagonia

What Patagonia lacks in megafauna it more than makes up for in rare bird life. There are Magellanic penguins on the Valdes Peninsula, Andean Condors soaring above Torres del Paine, flamingos in Tierra del Fuego, and much more everywhere else. Bring your binoculars!

Meander the Lakes District
The Lakes District

Meander the Lakes District

As distinctive for its conical volcanoes as its shimmering lakes, this region of central Chile and Argentina offers accessible and easy-going hiking with spectacular views, quiet villages and a laid back pace of life.
