Your Patagonia journey begins as you board an international outbound flight and land at Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport. Your private guide will greet you at the airport and escort you to your luxurious hotel. After check-in, you relax into the comforts of your hotel room and get acquainted with the atmosphere of Patagonia.
Today, you’ll start your journey in the serene location of Punta Arenas, which is one of the closest Chilean towns to Antarctica. You can wander in the streets of Punta Arenas and explore the city as much as you want. Afterward, take a ferry to Isla Magdalena, which is a very popular penguin spotting location in South America. This island is ruled entirely by penguins and approximately 60,000 breeding pairs come every year. You can then travel to Bahia Inutil where the only colony of king penguins outside of Antarctica resides. After spending a day with these adorable penguins in their natural habitat, it is now time to move towards Puerto Natales.
Puerto Natales is an important stopping point for those heading to the Torres del Paine National Park. It is a modest fishing port having a string of corrugated tin houses that now has a handful of hiking shops for its tourists to browse. After spending much time here, you can now either rent a car or board a bus to the famed Torres del Paine National Park. Whether you want to stay in rustic refugios (hiking hostels), go into the wild to set up your camp or live the high life in one of the many boutique hotels with magnificent views, enjoy the afternoon discovering your surroundings - wherever you choose to be situated, there are bound to be some beautiful waterfalls or lakes to visit.
If you are an eager hiker and want to hike the more advanced W or O trails, you need to allow for a longer stay in the Torres del Paine National Park as they take between 4 to 10 days (the W trail being the shorter of the two). If you are on a tight schedule then today you’ll be doing the Torres hike! You can opt to start the hike before sunrise in order to catch stunning views of the three towers as the sun rises up. Once you reach the creamy green lake and the humongous towering peaks, relax and enjoy your well-earned view. You can also treat yourself to a meal in one of the refugios or hotels after your difficult trek!
In the early morning, you can stroll around the beautiful turquoise Pehoe Lake. Sure your legs might be tired from hiking, so take a boat across the lake and enjoy the surrounding waterfalls and stunning vistas. Later, head out to Grey Lake where the gigantic Grey Glacier sits. It is accessible via a boat trip or you can hike across the ice on a Bigfoot Patagonia excursion where all the necessary equipment will be provided.
This morning, try your best to board the earliest bus out of Torres del Paine and across the Chile-Argentina border as the queues can take a long time later in the day. Once you arrive at El Calafate, Argentina’s glacier capital, you can wander across the main street, go horseback riding or simply settle into your accommodation. Enjoy your last evening in Patagonia by having a traditional meal at any of El Calafate’s various restaurants remembering your amazing Patagonia journey.
Today morning, return back to Punta Arenas and catch an international flight back home completing your Patagonia tour.
