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.

What our clients say

There are two moments that I wish I could return to again and again - watching the sun go down over the jagged rock formations of the Valley of the Moon and walking on the salt flats (the beauty of the place nearly brought a tear to my eye).DK, Dover
This was my second group trip to South America with JLA and it was just as fantastic - seeing the main sites such as Machu Picchu but also less well-known or off the tourist radar such as the inside of an Inca house in Ollytaytambo that added an extra insight to the culture and local way of life.
