South America’s southern frontier with wild, barren open spaces
This huge area of Southern Argentina is dominated by remote and vast plains, peppered with azure blue lakes, glaciers, and icebergs. The landscape just takes your breath away.
Lago Desierto, near El Chalten, offers an ideal staging post, being overlooked by the impressive and famous Fitz Roy Mountain, which is one of South America’s best hiking destinations. Nearby is El Calafate, which offers an impressive range of five-star accommodation in the neighbouring countryside, surrounded by some of the most stunning scenery you can imagine.
Choose between taking things at a more even pace, or thriving in this land with plentiful opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast, from horse-riding at one of the region’s best estancias, to trekking, and white-water rafting for the young at heart. The region is justifiably famous for the remarkable and unforgettable Glaciar Perito Moreno, one of South America’s great wonders of the world.
Patagonia is unreservedly a nature lover’s paradise on earth. Many visitors to the region combine their experience with a few days walking in Torres del Paine in Chile, across the border from El Calafate. Or enjoy the freedom of a 4×4 Overland Safari and discover Patagonia at your own pace.
