Active Argentina: Walking in Patagonia

14 days from £2919pp

Private Journey

The world's most spectacular wilderness mountain treks can be hard to reach. Not so in Argentine Patagonia: world-class hiking trails are just a short drive away from the airports of El Calafate, Los Glaciares National Park, and Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego National Park. We've put two treks together, the M Trek and a hike on Tierra del Fuego, in one amazing walking holiday.

The M Trek, so named after its shape, is a long recognised and popular route, renowned for its spectacular mountain views of the Fitz Roy massif, as well as vistas over crystal clear glacial lagoons. The Tierra del Fuego hike is less well known or walked, which adds to its appeal. Just a few kilometres inland from the busy port of Ushuaia is a quiet wilderness of ancient forest clinging to mountain cliffs, hidden streams and views over vertiginous glaciers. Follow guanaco trails where footpaths have not yet been forged. Some peaks you’ll see are still as yet nameless. A superb trek.
