Patagonia - the scenery in this part of the world is just stunning. Think of Queenstown and Central Otago then multiply it by 100 - minus all the people. Just plain spectacular!!!

We start out by flying from Santiago to Temuco to visit Pucon with its spectacular setting on Lake Villarrica and the stunning Mt Villarrica. You can explore off-road paths on National Parks and protected areas, surrounded by lakes, volcanoes, forests, rivers and hot springs.

After a relaxing stop, we travel overland through to the Lakes District. Crystal clear lakes, spectacular and imposing glaciers, remote and magnificent national parks, combined with endless snow-capped peaks of the Andes. And its not just the scenery that's eye catching - wildlife includes condors, flamingoes and abundant bird life.

We follow Chile's Carretera Austral route. Though most of the trip involves gravel, winding curves and unpredictable weather, the rewards are enormous. It's no exaggeration to say that each kilometre offers picture-perfect vistas - so have the camera at the ready.

You will hike or bike in the spectacular Fitzroy National Park amongst some of the most gorgeous mountain scenery in the world, before staying in the cute mountain town of el Chalten. The glaciers of Perito Moreno in Los Glaciars National Park is just plain awesome, its the size of Buenos Aires City and has such vibrant hues of blue and green with sculptured icebergs of all different sizes.

The nest part of the journey is into the stunning Torres del Paine National Park where its granite pillars soar almost vertically above the Patagonian steppe. The Park is littered with turquoise lakes, roaring rivers,creeping glaciers and dense forests that are a biker's paradise. The area is so good that we enjoy 5 nights here right in the park in a stunning eco lodge.

What really takes folks by surprise is the abundant wildlife - guanacos (from the camel family), foxes, geese, birds and duck, condors by the score, flamingoes, rheas, penguins, seals, and beavers, all in their natural habitat.
