Itinerary in detail

Every Jacada trip is tailored to your personal preferences and interests. Below you’ll find a sample itinerary to inspire your own custom-designed journey.

Days 1–2

One night in Buenos Aires

Your adventure begins in the vibrant city of Buenos Aires, the historic home of tango and now to a vibrant modern scene of restaurants, bars and culture. Take a tour through its elegant districts, wander down cobbled alleys and collect stories and anecdotes along the way.

Spend time relaxing and exploring the city’s wonders. You’ll have our top recommendations for activities, restaurants and shopping so that you can make the most of your time here. We can always organise additional privately guided tours (perhaps focused on history, culture or art) as well as more specialist excursions such as personal shopping trips, wine tasting and tango lessons.

Days 2–4

Two days exploring the Glacier Region around El Calafate

Next, it’s on to the Glacier Region around El Calafate. There are a variety of tours to do in this area and it’s up to you how you spend your time in one of Argentina’s most beautiful areas. We can organise several private or shared tours according to your interests. One of our favourite private experiences here is an exclusive tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier. On the way to the glacier, keep your eyes open for wildlife like red and grey foxes, guanaco deer, Patagonian horses and armadillos.

A private tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier

Los Glaciares national park, Perito Moreno Glacier

With your private guide and vehicle take the beautiful drive to the Los Glaciares national park. Enjoy the view, including the Corner of Sighs, where you get your first full view of the Glacier. During the drive you might catch a glimpse of red and grey foxes in the heather, cinnamon-coloured guanaco deer on rocky crags and large Patagonian hares leaping from bushes and across streams. 

Arriving at the humbling sight of the vast Perito Moreno Glacier, your guide will take you on a tour along the walkways. These give you superb viewpoints and photo taking opportunities while your guide brings to life the environmental and local importance of the glacier.

Days 4–8

Four days exploring Torres del Paine

Depending on the lodgings you have chosen and your individual preferences your travel designer can design a program of activities featuring a whole host of different and diverse ways to explore and encounter Torres del Paine. From hiking to horseback rides with gauchos, the rivers, lakes, mountains and glaciers here are breathtaking places to explore.

Days 8–12

A five day cruise from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia

Board your cruise ship in the small Chilean town of Punta Arenas and set sail on your journey to ‘the ends of the earth’. You’ll spend your days cruising the fjords before heading out to the open sea to reach Cape Horn. During the evenings, delicious gourmet dinners are served, drinks at the bar are enjoyed and there’s often lectures, briefings and chats with guides and crew. Each day there will be new excursions where you hop aboard a zodiac (small motor boat) to discover small channels or make landings for nature walks and stunning viewpoints.

Cape Horn Cruise

Your days at sea




The Magellanic Penguin Islands of Tierra del fuego

Seals & penguins

On day two you will hopefully have the chance to witness some of the area’s wondrous wildlife. During a nature walk at Beaver Dam, through a spectacular Magellanic forest, you’ll reach a beach to observe elephant seals. Then later on a zodiac ride to Tuckers Islets you can look out for Magellanic Penguins and Cormorants.

Pia Glacier

As you navigate the Beagle Channel you’ll reach the Pia Fjord for the chance to disembark for a closer look at the stunning, dramatic Pia Glacier. With your guides you’ll take a short hike to a lookout point with fantastic views of the glacier tongue stretching from mountain to sea.

Cape of good hope

Wulaia Bay

On day four you will sail through the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, where you will disembark (weather permitting). Together with your guides you will explore Wulaia Bay, the site of the largest Yamana aboriginal settlements and where Charles Darwin landed in 1833.

Days 12–13

A day in Ushuaia

Enjoy a day in the world’s southernmost city, Ushuaia. There’s lots to do in this part of Argentina where succulent lamb dishes are served for dinner and the intermittent rolling clouds and brilliant sunshine cast dramatic shadows over the equally exciting landscapes. You can take a private tour to learn about history or head out on a kayak to explore the Tierra Del Fuego National Park, or perhaps relax at your hotel with a unique view of Patagonia before you.

Days 13–14

An overnight in Buenos Aires

Return to the capital of Buenos Aires for a final night to enjoy the essence of Argentina; culture, food and music. This thriving city is the perfect place to end your trip where you can take a last walk around the beautiful boulevards, nip into a small cafe and enjoy time with your private guide on a choice of short tours that will fit perfectly with a layover here before departure.
