The Wild South

17-day adventure

Patagonia—The Wild South INCA adventure includes seven days of hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, hot-tubing, fine dining and luxuriating at Exlpora Salto Chico in Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia.

Our active exploration of Patagonia begins in the heart of Argentina, Buenos Aires. After attempting the tango and strolling the famed shopping and cafe districts, we head to central Patagonia to don crampons for a mini-trek across Perito Moreno Glacier.

Now we head to Explora Patagonia, where we may celebrate Christmas in remote yet not at all sparse style. We follow by ringing in the new year on board the Via Australis while cruising the fjords of Tierra del Fuego.
