Itinerary

Day 1
Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

Arrive at any time. As there are no planned activities until an evening welcome meeting, check into the hotel and enjoy the city. With any extra time, opt to visit the districts of La Boca, Recoleta, and San Telmo or catch a tango show.

Day 2
Buenos Aires - El Chaltén

Buenos Aires - El Chaltén

Fly to El Calafate and continue by bus to El Chaltén and Glacier National Park. Enjoy some free time in the city or head out on some short hikes. Fly south to the province of Santa Cruz and the town of El Calafate before transferring overland to El Chaltén. Warm up for the upcoming hike with optional short treks to nearby lookouts or explore around town.

Day 3
El Chaltén

El Chaltén

Enjoy a full day of hiking in Glacier National Park. See granite pinnacles spiraling upward from the third largest ice field on earth. Hike to Laguna de Los Tres to fully appreciate majestic Cerro Fitz Roy/Chaltén (3441m/11290ft) – it's probably the most famous and popular viewpoint of the mountain.

Day 4
El Chaltén - El Calafate

El Chaltén - El Calafate

Enjoy a free morning before heading to El Calafate. Enjoy free time any way you want. Hike to take in spectacular views or kick back and relax to gear up for the adventures yet to come.

Day 5
El Calafate

El Calafate

Get out there and explore the natural wonder that is the Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the world’s few “advancing” glaciers. Head to the southern end of Los Glaciares National Park (Glacier National Park), where Moreno's 60m (197 ft) wall of ice sporadically chokes off the narrow Canal de los Tempanos (Iceberg Channel) creating a natural ice dam, eventually exploding in a dynamic display of force.

Day 6
El Calafate - Puerto Natales

El Calafate - Puerto Natales

Travel by bus into Puerto Natales to prepare for the upcoming days of included hikes with expert mountain guides. Continue the journey south along an unpaved road to the border of Chile. Spend a relaxing evening in scenic Puerto Natales before heading into spectacular Torres del Paine National Park. Explore the town, eat a hearty meal for energy, and rest well for the hike ahead. Do any last minute shopping here and rent all equipment required.

Day 7
Puerto Natales - Torres del Paine

Puerto Natales - Torres del Paine

Cross the pampa Patagonica first on asphalt roads to Cerro Castillo, stopping for a quick break. Continue by dirt road with some photo stops — views here are beautiful! Start checking for wildlife — lots of guanacos and (likely) condors, geese, and other birds as well. Enter the national park and continue for another 30 mins to the start point of the trek. Leave early and go by van to Torres del Paine National Park. Head with the group to the base of Las Torres campsite – a local guide will lead the way and the CEO will act as sweep, keeping everyone together. Hike about 4-5 hrs in and 4-5 hrs back – it’s oh-so-worth-it! Transfer to the campsite at the end of the day for some spectacular food and time to reflect on the day.

Day 8
Torres del Paine

Torres del Paine

Hop on a ferry and cross the lake to trek into the French Valley. Enjoy another full day of spectacular scenery and physical exertion.

Day 9

Cruise along the Beagle Channel to observe marine wildlife among small islands and inlets before using your free time to explore all Ushuaia has to offer.
