Walking and easy hiking with options for more extensive hikes and activities. Comfortable accommodations in hotel, lodge or yacht.
Following the footsteps of early explorers, immerse yourselves in the wilds of Patagonia by land and sea without sacrificing comfort. This journey combines a five-day cruise around the Cape Horn with overland, naturalist-led explorations of Torres del Paine, Tierra del Fuego and Los Glaciares National Park. On this Patagonia adventure tour, spot wildlife on a hike and zodiac ride in Tierra del Fuego; trek across the massive ice field of Perito Moreno Glacier; and explore a site that was once the largest Yamana native settlement and the spot where Charles Darwin landed in 1833 and your voyage through the Beagle Channel. In addition to awe-inspiring scenery, you also encounter a variety of wildlife in their native habitats: walk through the protected nesting grounds of the Magellanic penguins; watch for rhea, Black-necked swan and flamingo in Torres del Paine National Park; and hike among massive glaciers to an elephant seal colony. This trip has been carefully designed to cater to travelers who want to sample and soak in Patagonia's majestic nature at their own pace but prefer shorter day hikes to long treks and appreciate a high level of service.
The cruise on the Australis was a superb experience. We were blessed with the calmest of waters and the bluest of skies. The crew, guides and staff made the experience an unforgettable one. Disembarking at Cape Horn was a remarkable part of the adventure.
