The vast and wonderfully diverse landscapes of southern Argentina await on our Magellanic: Southern Voyage group tour. You’ll begin your journey in one of Latin America’s most iconic cities, Buenos Aires, renowned for its elegant boulevards, colonial architecture and fashionable café society. After spending a few days exploring its trendy modern districts and colourful neighbourhoods, you’ll leave the capital behind and head to Bariloche in the Argentinian Lake District. Famed for its Swiss-style architecture and exquisite chocolates, the town is skirted by snow-capped Andean mountains and gemstone-clear lakes. It’s the perfect base for outdoor explorations, from picturesque boat rides to hikes through ancient cyprus forests. Venturing deeper into Patagonian territory, you’ll arrive at Los Glaciares National Park, where the Perito Moreno Glacier towers 60m above the glittering lake’s surface and sends vast chunks of ice hurtling into the water. Your last few days will be spent in the Valdés Peninsula, taking in its astonishing array of exuberant wildlife: expect to encounter tens of thousands of chattering penguins, gargantuan elephant seals sprawled on beaches and southern right whales breeding and calving in the sheltered bay.
