PATAGONIA

Making your "End of the Earth" Dreams Come True 


Rugged, windswept and wild, Patagonia entices. Come hike mountain trails, watch glaciers disgorging chunks of ice into lakes, and look for guanaco at Torres del Paine National Park. Cruise the Straits of Magellan and the glacial fjords of Tierra del Fuego. And relax in style at Explora Lodge, a unique outpost of elegance in the remote wilderness.

Some of the world's wildest landscapes and most remote villages are in Patagonia, where the Andes stretch south toward Antarctica. This is a land shaped by water, wind and ice, past and present. Glaciers calve into mountain lakes and narrow fjords, waterfalls fill the air with their murmurs and roars, and winds shape trees to their will. Probably the most famous landmark is the Torres del Paine—great ice-capped granite spires that surge from the golden pampas below.

People have held on in this rugged country by harvesting the bounty of the rich seas and forests, ranching the pampas grasses, and supplying ships that cruise the Straits—once loads of fortune-seekers, now loads of wilderness lovers.

Patagonia with INCA

We have several Patagonia itineraries to entice you. Each highlights a different aspect of this dramatic land and all include four or more days in Torres del Paine at Explora Hotel Salto Chico or Tierra Patagonia Hotel and Spa.

Charles Darwin in Patagonia Cruceros Australis and INCA continue the highly successful special Tierra del Fuego cruises in celebration of Charles Darwin. Join author/historian John Woram and other guest lecturers aboard the Via Australis or Stella Australis as we cruise the Strait of Magellan, the Beagle Channel and explore some of the places seen by Charles Darwin on his famous Voyage of the Beagle.

Patagonia—The Wild South takes you into Big Country, past 4-ton elephant seals, penguins, seabirds and glaciers. You'll cruise the Straits of Magellan, enjoy hikes in view of the spires of Torres del Paine, and spend a day hiking across Perito Moreno Glacier.

Patagonian Spring From the tango and cafe life of Buenos Aires to the Wilds of Patagonia, from whales, elephant seals and penguins to the snow-capped peaks of Los Torres del Paine, this is an active wildlife and hiking adventure. We planned this trip to coincide with the annual migration of whales along the Atlantic coast. Not to be missed!

Christmas in Patagonia and New Year's Eve in Buenos Aires This 12-Day adventure pairs five nights at inspiring Tierra Patagonia Hotel and Spa with five nights in Buenos Aires at Hub Porteño.

Tierra Patagonia is situated in the East side of Torres del Paine National Park, on the shores of Lake Saramiento. The lodge is our base for hiking, horseback riding and cycling through this remote, inspiring natural wonder. When not out and about, Tierra Patagonia offers fine dining, the best of Chilean wines, spa services and excellent attention to detail. Remote, elegant and rewarding.

Hub Porteño is a delightful base for a Buenos Aires exploration. Perfectly located in the Recoleta section, "the Hub" combines art deco and modern elegance with exceptional service. With 11 all-suite rooms, your experience will be intimate. Each year the Hub hosts a New Year's Eve celebration, optional for our guests. Join the Porteños for a New Year's to remember.
