Active 14 day adventure to explore the wilds of southern Chile and Argentina(Patagonia). Meet in the adventure center town of El Calafate in Patagonia before crossing the border into Chile.Hike for five days in the spectacular Torres del Paine National Park, touring around the stunning glaciated landscapes of the “Towers.” The hikes are easy to strenuous, and all afford views of the majestic peaks and remnants of enormous glaciers. Returning to Argentina, we travel by boat across Lago Argentino, passing huge icebergs and brash ice, to view the massive terminus of the Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glacieres National Park. A side trip takes us to a local Patagonia estancia (ranch) on the edge of the pampas to experience a traditional lifestyle and enjoy a fabulous “asado” (grill). We then venture to El Chalten to hike around the famous Mt. Fitzroy area. Our hikes take in lovely glacial lakes and beech forests. We embark on a long walk to a very special stay in a small private lodge overlooking Fitzroy, enjoying hearty breakfasts before our hikes and gourmet dinners after! Farewell dinner here before heading across the plains back to El Calafate and the next adventure.
