If you want to experience the very best of Patagonia: the Chilean Fjords, Los Glaciares National Park, Torres del Paine and Tierra del Fuego, but have less than a month to do it in, this is the trip for you. It’s a trip packed full of jaw-dropping scenery and exhilarating outdoor adventure, including a guided trip to the Moreno Glacier, trekking through National Parks and following in the footsteps of Darwin as you cross the Magellan Straits. The trip ends in Ushuaia with the option of a guided tour of Tierra del Fuego (the Land of Fire) at the very southern tip of the continent – beyond which lies only Antarctica.

Please note: On this trip at any time of the year you could encounter some very cold weather, even in full summer, especially at night.
Due to the nature of this trip and the area through which you will be travelling, there is a lot of both camping and wild camping involved. You will be travelling to the southern most point of South America and nights can be bitterly cold. To experience the most of what Patagonia has got to offer Dragoman, thanks to their overland vehicles, take you off the beaten track so that you can wild camp in some of the most stunning scenery you will ever encounter but remember it can get very cold and you will need to prepare accordingly. This is a tough trip and should not be taken lightly and we suggest you take some extra clothing and a good quality four season sleeping bag with a comfort zone of at least -1°C
