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 with stunning Mt Villarrica. After a relaxing stop, 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 - not to mention the condors, flamingoes and abundant bird life.   

One of the 'must sees' in this remote part of the world is the trip between Puerto Montt in Chile and Bariloche in Argentina. This trip takes us through perfectly conical shaped mountains and deep blue lakes by bus. It must make Mr Kodak smile as everyone is clicking away furiously.  

Hike in the spectacular Fitzroy National Park amongst some of the most gorgeous mountain scenery in the world. Stay in the cute mountain town of El Chalten. Visit the impressive Viedma Glacier.

The glaciers of Perito Moreno in Los Glaciars National Park is just plain awesome - the size of Buenos Aires city and such vibrant hues of blue and green and sculptured icebergs all different sizes.

We then move into the stunning Torres del Paine National Park where its granite pillars soar almost vertically above the Patagonian steppe with turquoise lakes, roaring rivers, creeping glaciers and dense forests, creating a hikers paradise. Enjoy 3 nights here right in the park in our stunning eco lodge.  

What really takes folk by surprise is the abundant wildlife - guanacos (from the camel family), foxes, condors by the score, flamingoes, rheas, penguins, seals, beavers, all in their natural habitat. Not to mention the geese, birds and ducks.

Literally at the end of the world is Ushuaia. Its setting is one of the most astounding in the world with jagged glacial peaks rising dramatically from sea level to1500m.

Return home via Buenos Aires – explore the “Paris of the Americas“ and the opportunity for an optional side trip to the mighty Iguassu Falls.
