If you have already seen the regular highlights of South America join us on this tour of some more off-the-beaten-track  attractions and chose your own adventure.

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.

Nature lovers – don’t miss out.

PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE UNABLE TO SECURE HOTEL BOOKING THIS FAR IN ADVANCE, SO THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE

Day 1

Fly from Santiago to Torres del Paine, Chile

Travel to the Fjord of Last Hope to your hotel on the outskirts of Torres del Paine National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. This will be your base for the next 3 nights. You are free to choose your own adventure depending on your interest, fitness and mood on the day.

Day 2

Torres del Paine, Chile

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 3

Torres del Paine, Chile

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.

In the evenings, share tales of adventures with your fellow delegates at the bar as daylight fades. Then enjoy a delicious dinner accompanied by the best Chilean wines.

Day 4

Torres del Paine, Chile - Santiago

Today you fly back to Santiago where you’ll spend the night at the airport hotel.

Australia
