Patagonia isn’t just wind-buffeted grassland and ice caps. In Argentina, this huge region embraces the pastures, dark forests and snow-smothered volcanoes of the lake district and, further south, the desert, turquoise lagoons and towering glaciers in the Los Glaciares National Park. The two areas are easily linked by air, and both offer a range of exciting excursions and outdoor activities which you can book with us before you leave or locally. The choice is yours, in this holiday for the independent-minded visitor.

We've chosen our favourite places, excursions and hotels, all of which have been enthusiastically enjoyed by our clients. Our benchmarks are high: a "standard" option doesn't mean low quality or dull, however.

You can view this option and, if you are happy with it, we welcome you to make a booking request online. But as with all our holidays for individuals it is flexible: if you'd like to tweak the trip a bit, perhaps choose different hotels, or add in an extra place or visit or excursion, please contact us and one of our specialist consultants will help you come up with your perfect holiday.
