PATAGONIA TO CAPE HORN

Explore Patagonia’s majestic glaciers and mountains, from vibrant Buenos Aires and Los Glaciares National Park to sophisticated Santiago and Valparaiso

The most southerly region of the South American continent has always captured the imagination of writers and adventurers. Its relative inaccessibility has preserved its pristine beauty and protected it as one of the world’s last remaining great unspoilt wildernesses. Spellbinding lakes, imposing mountains, magnificent glaciers, untouched forest and picture-book fjords produce breathtaking landscapes of mythology and magic that have yet to be affected in any visual sense by the presence or actions of man.

The awe-inspiring Perito Moreno glacier features dramatic continuous calving and the quaint city of Ushuaia stands on the Beagle Channel at the very end of the world. Cape Horn, wild, wind-whipped and desolate, culminates in Isla Homos, with its forbidding rocky promontory, lighthouse, chapel and designed to withstand 120 mph winds a monument of the albatross in flight. Across the border in Chile is the region of Ultima Speranza, home to Torres del Paine National Park, designated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO with lakes, lagoons, glacier and snow capped peaks.
