Christmas in Patagonia and
New Year's Eve in Buenos Aires

a 12-day super way to spend the holidays

December 21, 2014 to January 1, 2015

What would be the most memorable way to spend "The Holidays" this year? This special holiday adventure is the fruit of our brainstorming.

Torres del Paine, PatagoniaEarly morning sunlight blazing the Torres del Paine in December, summer in Patagonia. The "magic hour" lengthens into awe-inspring sunrises and sunsets.


Tarquino, Hub PortenoIntimate Tarquino cocktail bar, with a peek to Tarquino restaurant, headed by Dante Liporace of Maskana and Las Margas with former El Bulli chef Pedro Subijana.


Tierra Patagonia, situated on the eastern edge of Torres del Paine National Park, entices and seduces. It is a perfect place to spend Christmas, away from the usual holiday madness, enveloped in clouds, mountains, pampas, fine dining and casual luxury. A deeply unwinding experience.

For contrast: ring in the New Year Porteño style in the "City for Lovers," southern version. The Hub Porteño—a luxurious combination of history and modernism with just eleven all-suite rooms in the chic Recoleta district—is renowned for concierge service and fine dining. Buenos Aires never dissapoints.

Arrangements have been made for just twelve guests. Be one.

Asilo de La Paz

as seen in "The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden"

The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden

See the cave where Rolf Wittmer was born! Sip from the spring that was the sole source of water during the 1934 draught! Visit Post Office Barrel and Bay, the first link in the leaked Ritter and Strauch Floreana dream! Walk Black Beach, where the Wittmer family still resides!

Hyperbole aside, on an INCA Western Route you will visit Asilo de La Paz in the highlands of Floreana, the scene of drama and mystery 80 years ago, as shown in the new documentary "The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden."

Since our first trip in 1976, we have believed the human history and mystery of the Enchanted Isles is almost as interesting as the wildlife so we have brought our guests to Floreana to hear the tales of Margaret, Friederich and the Baroness en situ. Come make your own theory!

Weekly departures.
