Mount Fitz Roy, Patagonia, Argentina

Argentinian Patagonia

This is a place where stunning carved valleys, electric blue glaciers, aquamarine rivers and ancient wind-blasted beech trees combine to create an epic landscape. The town of El Calafate, surrounded by majestic peaks, is the gateway to some incredible experiences in the nearby Los Glaciares National Park.

Here, you can try some typical Patagonian food like Calafate berry stews, purchase local handicrafts or prepare for outdoor activities such as trekking and fishing in this incredible terrain. Trek a spectacular route, flanked on one side by the gargantuan Perito Moreno Glacier and on on the other by lush forests and small waterfalls.

The glacier, a huge chunk of ice that seems to extend beyond the horizon, makes for stunning photography opportunities. Wearing sturdy crampons, plot a route over the shimmering blues, reds and greens of the ice field or, for the ultimate adventure, try your hand at an unforgettable ice-climbing expedition up the side of the glacier.

Paul Bird

Paul has visited Argentina several times, taking in everything from the mighty Iguazu Falls to the dazzling Perito Merino Glacier. According to him, any country that boasts one of Earth’s most dramatic waterfalls, magnificent salt flats, exquisite wines and a vibrant capital is more than worth a visit.

James Armitage

This epic country offers extraordinary landscapes, from the flat Pampas to rugged Patagonia and the lofty Andes. One of James’s recommendations is to head to the north-west of the nation to experience the very different Andean culture based around Salta.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team for looking after us so well! Who could have foreseen electric storms (according to the locals in Buenos Aires – the worst in 10 years!) and the civil unrest in Chile.  You couldn’t have looked after us better if you had been on the spot! We had an AWESOME adventure – your advice and suggestions were bang on the nail every time. Each hotel was better than the next and the cruise was FANTASTIC, the scenery throughout the trip was amazing!
