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. Join us and discover the breathtaking beauty of Torres del Paine National Park in southern Chile. You pick the excursions and the pace to suit your interest, fitness and mood on the day.

Join us for our pre-conference tour off the beaten track in the Atacama Desert.

Our Post-Conference Tour will be onboard a luxurious ship cruising the Patagonian Fjords from Punta Arenas (Chile) and Ushuaia (Argentina) through some of the planet’s most remote places and incredible scenery.

Your room overlooks gorgeous Torres del Paine backdrops with intense, contrasting colours, ensuring you are always connected to the serenity of this magical place. The wooden decor and warm colours embrace Patagonia’s natural design and traditional culture.

You’ll participate in 24 hours of medical conference programs and have 3.5 days to explore the national park, with over 20 included tours to choose from.

Pre Tour – Atacama Desert.


Like nowhere else on earth, Chile’s Atacama Desert is THE destination for those who want to get off the beaten track, thrive on adventure (soft or not so soft – you choose) and have a passion for photography. Marvel at the incredible landscape of jagged, rust-coloured ravines; vast rocky white salt pans; volcano-topped horizons. From your base in a state-of the-art eco lodge, you can immerse yourself in one of the most remote and spectacular environments on the planet.

Post Tour – Patagonian Fjord Cruise.


Explore Patagonia on an adventurous five-day, four-night cruise between Punta Arenas (Chile) and Ushuaia (Argentina) through some of planet’s most remote places and incredible scenery. Discover the wild beauty of Patagonia on an Australis cruise that showcases the region’s pristine landscapes, rich wildlife and fascinating human history aboard an expedition ship that brings an extraordinary level of comfort and service to the uttermost edge of the world. Leaving the twinkling lights of Ushuaia behind, the vessel calls on fabled spots like Cape Horn and Wulaia Bay before cruising down the Beagle Channel. Continuing through the maze of islands, we’ll visit a number of glaciers, frozen giants that guard the southern flank of the Fuegian Archipelago, before entering the legendary Strait of Magellan. Last stop is the Isla Magdalena and its boisterous Patagonian penguin colony before docking at Punta Arenas.

Post Tour Ship – Stella Australis.

The purpose-built Stella Australis exploration vessel is ideal for discovering the fjords of Patagonia. Onboard, the décor in each of the 100 cabins is low- key though comfortable, while spacious lounge areas and observation decks let the stunning landscape and views do the talking.
