Now is the prime time to head down to Patagonia. The weather will be stunning for the next couple of months and it is a perfect time to see one of Mother Nature’s most stunning expositions. Have a look over these four different tours which we think offer some of the best ways to see that great part of the world.
First, we have the 11-day Patagonia Ultra-Luxe Tour from Blue Parallel, in which you go to Buenos Aires — the most European city in Latin America, Bariloche, Calafate, and El Chaltén. Here you can choose private tango lessons or meet local artists in their workspaces while in Buenos Aires before heading to Bariloche, which is a pristinely set lake-side city in the mountains. Then head to see Perito Moreno Glacier, a UNESCO World Heritage Site before going to El Chaltén where you will experience Mount Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. Other activities include hiking, yachting, golfing, superb fishing in some of the best trout lakes on Earth, mountain biking, horseback riding, and kayaking.
Next, from Ladatco Tours is the 12-day Patagonia Explorer. Here the highlights include a start in Buenos Aires where you can take in a show at the famous Gala Tango as well as a show highlighting Gaucho music and dance. At Glaciares National Park you will be able to see the Perito Moreno Glacier, which is one of the few glaciers that is currently growing, and as well have a view of the Upsala Glacier in the Cristina fjord — only accessible by boat. Finally, before going to Santiago, Chile where you will visit Pablo Neruda’s house and visit wineries, you will see the iconic Torres del Paine in Tierra Patagonia.
Our third tour suggestion is Chile’s Patagonia and Mapuche Culture tour by Big Five Tours and Expeditions. For 14-days you will visit some of the best natural features including Wulaia Bay via the Stella Australis Cruise, which you will be on for three days along the Chilean coast, along with Aysen, Chile where you can stay at an ice camp for a full adventurers experience. Following that, you will visit Puerto Montt and Pucón where you can learn about Mapuche culture along with your choice of trekking, horseback riding, mountain biking, kayaking, sailing, or fishing as your recreational activity.
The final tour we want to speak on is the President’s Pick – The Wilds of Chile’s Northern Patagonia, also by Big Five Tours and Expeditions. This tour has glacial expeditions to the famous Hanging Glacier of Queulat National Park, a trip to Los Condoreras to see the famous Andean Condor birds take flight, and kayaking through the marble caves — which are amazing structures half submerged in glacial lakes. You will also spend time in Chile’s two biggest cities, Santiago and Valparaiso for some urban fun with food and drink. And last, but maybe the highlight of the trip is a journey to Easter Island!
