Patagonia & Beyond Santiago - Buenos Aires

Trip Overview

This trip links up two of the most cosmopolitan cities of South America, Santiago and Buenos Aires and allows us to explore the real wilderness of the two countries of Argentina and Chile – it's all about Patagonia. It’s a journey for lovers of the outdoors, with plenty of camping in national parks of outstanding natural beauty, and the chance to trek, climb, bike, and horse ride through some breathtaking scenery.

Perhaps the highlight will be the 5 day visit to Torres del Paine National Park, where there will be plenty of time to trek the W Walk; or maybe riding or trekking around the magnificent Los Glaciares National Park around the dramatic peaks of Mount Fitz Roy will be your highlight but there is so much more, with Gauchos, horses, the spectacular Lake District with its twin towns of Bariloche and Pucon or the penguins and right whales of the Peninsular Valdes.

All the while we are criss-crossing the frontiers of Chile and Argentina before heading north, away from the windswept wilds and into the Pampas, the hot, dry heartland of Argentina and the great Salsa city of Buenos Aires.

We are partnered with the Torres del Paine Legacy Fund, who work to enhance the long-term health of Torres del Paine and its surrounding communities.

Neil B
I've been on other overland trips as well numerous other extended trips with leaders. Rob was simply the best I've ever encountered. He was funny, informative, organized, and helpful well above and beyond what most other leaders have been. Rob takes great joy in making people's overland experience as exceptional as possible. I've heard the term servant-leader thrown around often in my organization, but Rob too me exemplifies this perspective. Finally, as great as some of my past trip leaders have been, Rob was the first one I've ever contemplated following wherever he goes in the future.

Tig was very organized, even colour coded our notes! Always there to answer questions. Rich was also super helpful - a great team! Very kind, funny, make you feel instantly like part of the group. Both very good safe drivers, and good problem solvers! Never grumpy or frustrated with the group. Just really awesome people!
