Nandu: Peaks and plains of Patagonia

21 days from £3,528pp
 

Group Journey

 
The Nandú Journey explores the beautiful, remote and sometimes savage scenery of Patagonia in southern Chile and Argentina, and the diverse human and wildlife landscapes of these two very varied countries. 

From the gentle countryside, dense forests and snow-capped volcanoes of the Chilean lake district, the journey heads south to the bleak windswept scenery of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, crossing grassy plains, passing soaring granite peaks and creaking glaciers. By way of dramatic contrast you’ll savour life in the two capital cities; the elegant and European Buenos Aires, and cosmopolitan Santiago.

What our experts say

We designed the Nandu Journey to showcase the best of Patagonia’s epic scenery: from volcanic lakes and thermal springs to waterfalls; towering granite massif and calving glaciers. For those looking to get out into nature and challenge themselves, there are plenty of opportunities to hike and horse ride, with optional ice trekking, white-water rafting, and volcano climbing excursions available too.
