Our Ultimate Patagonia to Antarctica Holiday

The open roads and mountain trails of Patagonia; an active 'base camp' cruise to Antarctica. This is our ultimate polar adventure. We'd love to make it yours.

The far south of Patagonia is a dramatic place of wild beauty, where walking trails reveal glacial lagoons, alpine meadows and blue glaciers of unimaginable size and strength. South from here, the next landfall is Antarctica, best experienced by walking along snowy ridges, floating silently among giant blue sculptures of ice and burrowing in to spend the night watching the vast starry sky above.

Day 5 - Cross the park via a wildlife trail

As you cross Torres del Paine to change hotel, you can follow the fauna trail across an area of arid open steppe, where you can see guanacos, foxes, armadillos and, if you're lucky, pumas.
