Welcome to Patagonia, the enchanting region of Southern Argentina and Chile – a place which has challenged explorers and adventurers ever since its discovery in 1520. Enjoy the dramatic snow-capped mountains, ice blue glaciers, emerald green lakes, sparkling rivers, heavenly green forests, majestic cliffs and fjords. Its awe-inspiring natural beauty makes it one of the most spectacular destinations on Earth.
Please note: this private Patagonia tour is an example, as all of our luxury journeys are custom-made.
Upon arrival in the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires, your personal host will take you by private transfer to your 5-star hotel of choice. On the first day of your luxury Argentina tour, with your expert guide, you will discover the chic neighborhood of Recoleta home to the world-renowned Recoleta cemetery. In the evening, dine at an authentic “parilla” to savor some of the world’s best steak and malbec wine.
Begin the following day with a private tour of the magnificent Teatro Colón (with exclusive access to the theater’s backstage studios and dressing rooms). Visit the Plaza de Mayo with your private guide before continuing to the cobblestone streets of San Telmo with its artisans and antique shops. Following dinner, we will take you to the best tango show in town to watch this iconic dance firsthand. Alternatively, we can also organize a private biking tour through the gorgeous parks of the Palermo neighborhood, a personal shopper for insider access to the high-end Argentine shopping scene, or even a private tango lesson with a professional dancer.
Fly into El Calafate to begin your luxury Patagonia tour. Your host will escort you by private transfer across the Patagonian steppe to the luxurious Eolo Lodge. This smartly designed property is located in the heart of the Anita Valley, surrounded by snow-capped mountains where you will spot wildlife species in their natural habitat. On your first afternoon, explore this beautiful valley by trekking, mountain biking or horseback riding through its unique trails.
The following day, take a private transfer to the Glaciers National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This frozen wonderland of startlingly white and piercing blue ice is surrounded by snow-capped mountains. After a short boat ride across the bay, experience an ice-trekking excursion on the majestic Perito Moreno glacier crossing towering ice peaks, huge crevasses, turquoise creeks and icy lagoons with a specialized guide. Later, after a picnic lunch facing the glacier, visit the spectacular catwalks and balconies which offer breathtaking views of the Perito Moreno Glacier.
The next day, enjoy an exciting boating excursion through icebergs and turquoise water to witness the majestic Upsala Glacier and explore an authentic, century-old Patagonian estate, Estancia Cristina, tucked away in Patagonia’s remote wilderness. In the evenings, enjoy gourmet dinners at Eolo Lodge, with spectacular views of the valley.
Continue your luxury tour of Patagonia as you cross the border into Chile. Depart El Calafate for a private 5-hour drive to Torres del Paine National Park across the immense Patagonian steppe. Along the way, enjoy a private guided visit of the innovative Glaciarium Museum to learn about the glaciers and the National Park’s preservation efforts. We recommend the following luxury lodges – Tierra Patagonia, Awasi Patagonia or Explora Patagonia, and will be happy to select one for you based on your personal preferences.
During your stay, choose from a variety of outdoor adventures (in private or in a small group). You will have the opportunity to enjoy the incredible natural beauty of the park as well as its wildlife, which includes condors and guanacos. As experts in the region, we will provide you with exciting excursion recommendations based on your interests and fitness level, such as the hike to the base of the Towers or a day in the French Valley of the National Park.
After a long day of discovery and exploration in the wilderness, unwind with a relaxing massage and enjoy an outdoor jacuzzi with expansive views of the Torres del Paine mountain range and the valley with animals grazing nearby. Spend the last evening of your private Patagonia tour indulging on a gourmet meal accompanied by vintage Chilean wines.
