Where we visit

 

Day 1: Buenos Aires

 

You can arrive at any time today, as there are no planned activities until an evening welcome meeting. So check into the hotel and enjoy the city. The welcome meeting is your opportunity to meet your guide and fellow travellers and learn more about your tour. Don't forget to see the notice in the lobby (or ask reception) for the official time and place to meet up with the group.

 

Booking pre or post-trip accommodation is highly recommended to experience this vibrant city fully. With any extra time, opt to visit the districts of La Boca, Recoleta, and San Telmo or catch a tango show.

 

Accommodation: Hotel

 

Day 2: Buenos Aires to El Chaltén

 

Fly to El Calafate and continue by bus to El Chaltén and Los Glaciares National Park. En route, marvel at the towering Andean mountains. Enjoy some free time in the town or head out on some short hikes.

 

Transport: Domestic economy flight taking approx 3 hrs 30 min, private vehicle with an approx driving time of 6 hrs
Accommodation: Hotel

 

Day 3: El Chaltén

 

Enjoy a full day of hiking in Los Glaciares National Park. See granite pinnacles spiralling upward from the third-largest ice field on earth. Hike to Laguna de Los Tres to fully appreciate the majestic Cerro Fitz Roy/Chaltén (3,441m/11,290 ft) – one of the mountain's most famous and popular viewpoints.

 

Transport: Guided hike with a total distance of 20km, taking approx 8 to 9 hrs
Accommodation: Hotel

 

Day 4: El Chaltén to El Calafate

 

Enjoy a quiet morning before heading to the quaint little town of El Calafate. You can use your free time in any way you want. Hike to take in spectacular views or kick back and relax to gear up for the adventures yet to come.

 

Transport: Local bus with an approx driving time of 3 hrs 30 min
Accommodation: Hotel

 

Day 5: 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, 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, which eventually explodes in a dynamic display of force.

 

You could also choose to take an optional boat tour of the glacier. Embark in the floating dock in the south arm of Argentino Lake, and navigate along the Iceberg Channel towards the front wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier, where most of the ice calving takes place. This boat trip, which lasts approximately one hour, is one of the most popular excursions and is not to be missed.

 

Accommodation: Hotel

 

Day 6: El Calafate to Puerto Natales

 

Travel by bus into Puerto Natales, continuing the journey south along an unpaved road to the border of Chile. Here you'll prepare for the upcoming days of included hikes with expert mountain guides. Explore the town, eat a hearty meal for energy, and rest well for the trek ahead. Do any last-minute shopping here and rent all equipment required.

 

Transport: Local bus with an approx driving time of 6 hrs
Accommodation: Hotel

 

Day 7: Puerto Natales to Torres del Paine

 

Taking a private vehicle, you'll cross the pampa Patagonica first on asphalt roads to Cerro Castillo, stopping for a quick break.

Enter the national park and continue for another 30 mins to the start point of the trek.

 

Head with the group to the base of Las Torres campsite – a local guide will lead the way, and your guide 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.

After a couple of hours, cross the border, change to a van, and continue to Ushuaia.

 

Transport: Ferry taking approx 20 to 30 mins, a local bus with an approx driving time of 12 to 15 hrs
Accommodation: Hotel

 

Day 11: Ushuaia

 

After a big day yesterday, you've earned some free time to explore Ushuaia. Opt to hike to Laguna Esmeralda, get face-to-face with Martial Glacier, or visit Tierra del Fuego National Park.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most people automatically assume that the weather is hot in South America, but in Patagonia, the temperature can feel quite cold, especially at night. The Operator recommends using a backpack for your convenience, or a medium-sized suitcase if you prefer. A daypack is also essential for carrying everyday items. Space is limited on transportation, so there is a limit of one main piece of luggage per person. You will be responsible for carrying your own luggage.

 

Camping equipment for the Paine trek is provided and included in the cost of your trip. A sleeping bag and mat are also provided. You may leave the bulk of your gear stored in Puerto Natales. While hiking you will only need to carry your daypack with supplies for the duration of each day.

All countries require a valid passport (with a minimum 6 months validity). Contact your local embassy or consulate for the most up-to-date visa requirements, or see your travel agent. It is your own responsibility to have the correct travel documentation. Visa requirements for your trip will vary depending on where you are from and where you are going.

1

It is customary in Latin America to tip service providers such as waiters, at approximately 10%, depending on the service. Tipping is an expected - though not compulsory - component of your tour program and an expression of satisfaction with the persons who have assisted you on your tour. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels. There are several times during the trip when there is an opportunity to tip the local guides or drivers The Operator uses. Recommendations for tipping drivers and local guides would range from 5-10USD per day depending on the quality and length of the service; ask your guide for specific recommendations based on the circumstances and culture.

 

Additionally, at the end of the trip, if you felt your guide did an outstanding job, tipping is appreciated. The amount is entirely a personal preference, however as a guideline $20-25 USD per person, per week can be used.

1

Travel insurance is compulsory in order to participate in any of the trips. When travelling on a group trip, you will not be permitted to join the group until evidence of travel insurance has been sighted by your guide, who will take note of your insurance details.

 

When selecting a travel insurance policy please bear in mind that all clients must have medical coverage and that The Operator requires a minimum coverage of USD200,000 for repatriation and emergency rescue. They strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. If you have credit card insurance they require proof of purchase of the trip (a receipt of credit card statement) with a credit card in your name. Contact your bank for details of their participating insurer, the level of coverage and emergency contact telephone number

The currency in Argentina is the Argentine Peso (ARS) and in Chile, the Chilean Peso (CLP).

Credit cards and debit cards are very useful for cash advances. Visa cards are the most widely accepted cards. While ATMs are widely available, there are no guarantees that your credit or debit cards will actually work in Latin America. Check with your bank.

You should be aware that to purchase products or services on a credit card a fee of 5%-10% usually applies.

Do not rely on credit or debit cards as your only source of money, a combination of US dollar cash and cards is best. Please bear in mind that the cost of living in the southern cone countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile) is much higher than the rest of South America, and in the case of Argentina, more comparable with Europe. Always take more rather than less, as you don't want to spoil the trip by constantly feeling short of funds.

The Operator does not recommend bringing travellers' cheques as they are very difficult to change in the country.

 

Please also make sure you have access to at least an additional USD $200 (or equivalent) as an 'emergency' fund, to be used when circumstances outside our control (ex. a natural disaster) require a change to our planned route. This is a rare occurrence!
