Southern Patagonia presents a veritable wilderness of huge glaciers and awe-inspiring granite peaks, the most famous of which are the Torres del Paine and Cerro Fitz Roy. Our popular itinerary accesses all of the best viewpoints, without the need for sustained multi-day trekking or backpacking. Throughout the trip, we make use of comfortable fixed camps with excellent facilities, including hot showers. Flying in to Punta Arenas, the southern-most town in Chile, we make a 6-day exploration of the Paine region, including excursions to Lago Grey and Lago Pehoe and day-walks up to the base of the majestic rock towers. Transferring to Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park, our first stop-off is at the unmissable and extremely impressive Perito Moreno Glacier. Then, 3 days of trekking will enable us to seek out the best views of Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. This is your chance to experience one of the wildest and most spectacular corners of the world.
Is this holiday for you?
Making use of fixed camps and refuges, as well as hotel and lodge accommodation whilst at Fitz Roy, this trip uses a day-walking format to allow us to see the very best of the Patagonian landscape. Ranging in duration from 3 to 8 hours, group members will be required to carry just a small day-pack during these day walks. All of the walking is on well-defined paths. Altitude is not a factor on this trip.
