Enjoy a few days exploring Patagonia from your new home, the spectacular Rio Serrano Hotel and Spa.

Patagonia evokes the image of the last frontier. A fabled landscape of rugged peaks veiled in clouds, lush forests, glaciers that extend to the horizon tumbling into electric-blue lakes, endless steppes unpopulated for hundreds of miles; a herd of guanaco grazing nonchalantly.

Day 1

Santiago

Overnight in Santiago.

Day 2

Santiago - Patagonia

Morning flight from Santiago to Punta Arenas where you will be transferred to your hotel.

Enjoy the afternoon exploring the local area or relax at the hotel.

Day 3

Patagonia

Admire the hardy local flora and be on the look out for the Patagonian BIG FIVE – the Guanaco (a bit like a llama), the elusive Puma, the South Andean deer or huemel, the majestic Andean condor and the Nandu (like an ostrich). This is paradise for bird watchers as there are 118 species in the park – happy twitching. If it is all too much, you can just spoil yourself at the spa.

Day 4

Patagonia

You can hike, horse-ride, cycle or travel by van to explore lush forests, rugged mountains, glistening glaciers and sparkling lakes, rivers and waterfalls. Examine bizarre geological Jurassic era formations; marvel at cave paintings from the Aonikenk, hunter-gatherer native Indian inhabitants of 6,000 years ago.

Day 5

Patagonia - Punta Arenas

Transfer to board the ship from Punta Arenes.
