Family Patagonia: Glacial lakes and mountains

16 days from £5,233pp
 

Private Journey

 

This adventurous family holiday takes you from Buenos Aires to Patagonia in the far south of South America. It’s a land of ice caps, glaciers jagged mountains and lakes at the tip of the Andes in Chile and Argentina. Explorations include a visit to the minty blue, cathedral-high Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina, and the wildlife-rich Torres del Paine National Park in Chile.

To the delight and awe of youngsters, the south is a true wilderness, where just a few rough roads cut through a frost-bitten landscape of glaciers, luminous lagoons, icy pinnacles and wind-strafed steppe. It is however readily accessible to all visitors, and our explorations are reassuringly comfortable for any older members of your party. You’ll also head north to the Atacama desert: the driest in the world.  Here the scenery has a moon-like quality, with wind-carved rocks, fizzing geysers and pretty oases.

What our experts say

If you have the opportunity to fly south from Santiago to Puerto Montt or Punta Arenas in Patagonia, make sure you book a seat on the left-hand-side of the plane. You’re children will be rewarded with spectacular scenery of glacial lakes, snow-capped volcanoes and granite peaks for the 3-4 hour flight. There is no better entertainment than this view, I promise.
