Sailing Amongst the Glaciers

Get glacial in Patagonia, sailing between icebergs and exploring a frozen world of endless mountains, piercing winds, lakes and cool blue glaciers bigger than the entire city of Buenos Aires. It’s a surreal, silent place that has to be seen to be believed. This trip will take you into the frozen heart of Patagonia, a land of dazzling white snow, deep sapphire skies and cool blue glaciers.

Whale Tails & Tyre Tracks

Drive across a rugged wilderness packed with wildlife, spot killer whales and visit huge penguin colonies. Argentina’s Peninsula Valdes is over run by animal life, from ostrich-like nandoos darting across the plains to humpbacks breaching in the waves. This is a really wild road trip along the northern coastline of Patagonia. The richness of the wildlife is simply staggering and seeing it on your own four wheels doubles up the adventure.

Puerto Madryn - Bariloche

Today, you can drop your car off in the morning and visit the interesting Eco Museum in Puerto Madryn or take a walk along the coast. In the early evening you’ll make your own way to the bus station for the overnight journey to Bariloche. The 15 hour overnight buses are comfortable with fully reclining seats, a meal and movies on-board.

The Seven Lakes of The Andes - Bariloche

Kayak across glacier lakes and gaze up at snow-tipped peaks in Bariloche, penned in by pine forests and dotted with fjord-like lakes. It’s Patagonia at its most picturesque. Sit back and soak up the gorgeous alpine scenery with a glass of local wine. Bariloche has a holiday atmosphere, drawing skiers and snowboarders to its slopes every year. The landscape that lies beyond the streets is just staggering, so lace up your walking boots and start to explore.

Mountain and lake landscape

Fine Wine and Sunshine

Cycle between wine bodegas against a backdrop of snowy peaks and sit back with a glass of local Malbec at a sidewalk café. During this trip, you’ll spend two in a small traditional village with cobbled streets and shady colonial plazas, twenty minutes from Mendoza itself. On the second day, you’ll set out early to cycle between sun-kissed vineyards to sample some local wines with views over the Andes.
