At a glance

This trip has been expertly designed for those seeking to explore the stunning landscapes of Patagonia. Patagonia is a vast unspoilt wilderness extending from the Lake District in Argentina and Chile, down to the Southern-most tip of South America. It truly is a land of breathtaking vistas, glaciers, crystalline turquoise lakes, wide open spaces and crisp clean air.

The tour starts with an introduction to Argentina, with a stay in the splendid and vibrant city of Buenos Aires. We will then take you down to the crumbling Perito Moreno Glacier and across the border to explore the towering peaks of Torres del Paine National Park, considered one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Your trip will finish in Chile’s famous wine region, where you can enjoy the area’s rich central valleys and numerous vineyards.

Four balconies city tour Four balconies city tour

This exclusive tour serves as the perfect introduction to four of the city's most distinctive districts, offering a fascinating insight into its history, contrasts and culture. One of the professors from the university will draw on his extensive knowledge as you experience the highlights of Buenos Aires, including political centres, artist meccas and barrios rich in European architecture. You'll become acquainted with the foundation site of the capital at Plaza de Mayo, undisputedly Buenos Aires' political heart.

Next, you'll delve into one of the oldest districts, Parque Lezama and La Boca in the south, where artists ateliers and brightly coloured houses jostle for space; before moving on to Plaza San Martin and Retiro. Here, you'll notice the transformation of Buenos Aires architecture from the rambling style of the south of the city to the European-influenced residential quarters of the 19th century. Finally, you'll come face to face with the sophisticated neighbourhood of Recoleta, whose buildings and avenues were inspired by the French; it's also home to the world-famous Recoleta Cemetery and Evita Peron's Mausoleum, and you'll get to make a stop here on this tour.

It's up to you how you want to spend your time in Argentina's Glacier Region, and we can organise several private or shared tours according to your interests and time should you like to.

Private tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier Private tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier

You will be brought by private vehicle through the national park, a beautiful drive of some 2.5 hours with stops to 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 fleeing across the heathery landscape, whilst in the distance cinnamon-coloured guanaco deer balance on rocky crags and below, large Patagonian hares leap from bushes across streams. Along the roadside crawl little armadillos and if you are very lucky, you might just see the tawny back of a puma. Rosy flamingos gather at the water’s edge while hawks and kites hover over the hillside, eyeing scurrying voles and other rodents. And, just possibly, way way up above, you might spy the magnificent silhouette of the condor.

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