8 nights in Argentina
As a destination for Active travellers, Patagonia is nothing short of iconic. Do yourself a favour, get yourself down there, and hike all over it. From trekking through the crisp air of El Chaltén (with its crazy beautiful Cerro Torre), to the area near (very near) the imposing Perito Moreno Glacier, and of course, all the giant sky, vast views, big city Buenos Aires appeal, and the sense of personal triumph you can handle (and then some) – Patagonia's ready and waiting for you.

Fly south to the province of Santa Cruz and the town of El Calafate before transferring overland to El Chaltén. Often referred to as the trekking capital of Argentina, El Chaltén is the gateway to Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torres, two of the most beautiful peaks in Patagonia. Enjoy free time to warm up for the upcoming trek, opt to take a short hike to a nearby lookout or explore around town. Transport: Plane (3.50 hour(s)) Private Vehicle (3.00-3.50 hours)
Laguna de los Tres is the most popular trek in El Chaltén and for good reason. On a clear day, the view of Cerro Fitz Roy and the sparking teal lake below are spectacular. The gradual start to the trek provides time to appreciate the stunning landscape and ease into the challenging trekking ahead. Although the 400m (1,312 ft) incline to reach the lake is taxing, the reward is well worth the effort. Included Activities: Glacier National Park Guided Hike
Explore one of El Chaltén's many trekking routes. Opt to explore the Laguna Torre trail to spot the dramatic Cerro Torre, hike to Laguna Capri or head up to the Condor Mirador to enjoy great views of the town.
Jump into a raft and enjoy the thrilling ride through Glacier National Park. Watch the mountains fade into the distance and paddle down Class III rapids. Afterwards, head to the quaint little town of El Calafate, and opt for a hearty dinner to refuel. Included Activities: El Chaltén Whitewater Rafting Transport: Private Vehicle (3.00-3.50 hours, 152km)
Home to the immense Perito Moreno Glacier, the quaint alpine town of El Calafate is the perfect base for exploring the nearby glaciers. Los Glaciares National Park, the most renowned in Argentina, was created in 1973 to preserve this vast glacial area encompassing the Upsala Glacier and the incredible Onelli Bay. The main strip of this tiny town is lined with small wooden shops, browse for souvenirs, chocolates, or stop in one of the restaurants for a rest.
Argentino Lake, discovered in 1873, is the southernmost of the four water sheets produced by the Pleistocene Glaciation. With its fjords and fingers it covers 1,505km² (935 mi²), and is considered one of the most breathtaking lakes in the world. The Perito Moreno Glacier is an imposing river of ice, 2.7km (1.7 mi) wide by 55m (180 ft) high, which descends from the continental ice field to the Canal de los Tempanos. Included Activities: Perito Moreno Glacier Tour
Fly to the capital city of Argentina, Buenos Aires, the city of Tango! When you are done exploring, settle your weary feet and enjoy a drink in one of the many sidewalk cafes and restaurants. You'll soon begin to understand the contemplative Argentine way of life. Get together for one last meal—and a final bottle of wine. This will be your last chance to try Argentina's succulent bife and parrilladas, so dig in and enjoy! Transport: Plane (3.00-3.50 hours)
