Self-drive Patagonia: The open road to Torres del Paine

20 days from £5,478pp

Price excludes international flights at the beginning and end of the trip

 

Private Journey

 
This holiday showcases three contrasting regions of Patagonia in Argentina and Chile where independent self-drive opens up amazing landscapes for you to explore at your leisure and preferred speed. You have freedom as soon as you get behind the wheel but also the security of knowing your accommodation is booked for you at the end of a day on the road.

Discover Argentina’s glorious lake district, a feast of virgin forests and rugged mountains reflected in a necklace of glassy lakes. The highlight is the drive north along the poster-perfect Seven Lakes Route to tranquil San Martin de los Andes. Later, fly south to visit one of Patagonia’s finest national parks: Los Glaciares, featuring Mount Fitz Roy. Move on to Torres del Paine National park in Chile staying at 2 lodges in different areas. Each is situated in magnificent surroundings, offers a range of optional excursions and enables you to enter and leave the Park on different, scenic routes. Besides scenic drives all round, each offers uniquely different experiences once you’ve parked the car. As you drive through the magnificent natural theatre of Patagonia you’ll really appreciate the extra freedom to pause for photos or linger longer for yet another fabulous view.
