The high Andean peaks and pristine glaciers of Southern Patagonia in Argentina make for one of our favorite adventure tours! From the famous Cerro Fitz Roy Mountain in Los Glaciares National Park to the frigid waters of the Beagle Canal in Ushuaia, this is definitely a bucket list trip! We do have a few other special trips that need to be on this list, but if you’re only able to get to South American once in your life, this is the Patagonia tour package you want!!!
The trip begins in the cosmopolitan capital of South America, Buenos Aires! Here you will enjoy Tango dancing, eclectic neighborhoods, world-renowned cuisine, and endless Malbec wines. Buenos Aires is truly one of the great cities of the world, combing Latin and European cultures into one.
From here you are off to the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, which is located on the Island of Tierra del Fuego. Ushuaia is home to working estancias, the Beagle Canal & Bay of Ushuaia, the only spot in all of South America where the Andes Range runs from West to East (rest of the range is North to South), and some of the best outdoor activities found anywhere in Argentina.
Your next stop on this mega Patagonia adventure tour is the village of El Calafate, which is the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park. Los Glaciares is well known for the Perito Moreno, Upsala, Spegazzini, Onelli Glaciers, and many more.
Just over three hours to the north you will be visiting the village of El Chalten, home to Cerro Fitz Roy Mountain and the Southern Patagonia Ice Cap. This small Argentine village is the gateway to some of the best day hikes, multi-day treks, rock & ice climbing, mountain biking, and rafting in all of Patagonia. Book this incredible Patagonia tour package to experience this beautiful country for yourself!
