Days 1–3

Two nights in Argentina's capital

Before you set off for the wilds of Patagonia, spend a night relaxing and exploring the wonderful, colourful city of Buenos Aires. Take in a tango show and explore the city’s distinctive districts on a privately-guided tour, or ask your concierge to organise a more specialist excursion such as a personal shopping trip, wine tasting or tango lessons.

Sightseeing and culture

Four balconies city tour

This exclusive tour with an expert guide serves as the perfect introduction to four of the city’s most distinctive districts: Parque Lezama and La Boca in the south, where artists’ ateliers and brightly coloured houses jostle for space; European-influenced Plaza San Martin and Retiro; and Recoleta, home to Evita Peron’s Mausoleum.

Rojo tango show

Sip champagne and enjoy the best tango show in town, set in the exclusive environs of the Faena Hotel. The Rojo tango is the smallest and most stylish of tango salons.

 

Days 3–5

Two nights in the glacier region from El Calafate

Next you’ll spend a couple of nights based in El Calafate on the edge of the Southern Patagonian ice field. From here you’ll visit Argentina’s staggering glaciers, including the Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glaciares National Park. This is truly is a land of breathtaking vistas, wide open spaces and crisp clean air. Grey foxes flee across the heathery landscape, whilst cinnamon-coloured guanaco deer balance on rocky crags and rosy flamingos gather at the water’s edge. Hawks and kites hover over the hillside, eyeing scurrying voles and other rodents.

A private tour of Perito Moreno Glacier

A private car will take you the 2.5 hours to Los Glaciares National Park, with stops at viewpoints en-route to spot fox, deer, hare and armadillo – and if you’re very lucky, a puma or the silhouette of a condor. Arriving at the humbling sight of the vast Perito Moreno Glacier you will take a guided hike along specially built walkways with superb vistas and photo-taking opportunities, as well as opportunities to learn about the environmental and local importance of the glacier.

Days 5–9

Four nights of exploration in Torres del Paine

Deep in the south of Chile’s remote Patagonia, the spectacular Torres del Paine National Park is considered one of the most beautiful areas in the world and is packed with mesmerising picture-postcard peaks, glaciers and lakes. You can choose from a variety of excursions, including exploring the park’s famous hiking routes, setting off on horseback rides with gauchos or taking a helicopter flight to take in the park’s wild landscapes from above.

Days 9–11

Two nights in Chile's famous Wine Region
