Patagonia tours with Grand American Adventures
Our Patagonia tours begin in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, which is considered to be the most European of all the Latin American cities thanks to its wide boulevards and spectacular architecture. Here, you'll be able to soak up the local culture before your real adventure begins!
During your travels, you'll make your way to Ushuaia, a former penal colony that holds the distinction of being the most southerly town in the world. Here, you'll be able to see snow-capped peaks year-round as well as plenty of wildlife – in addition to sea lions, more than 150 different types of bird have been spotted in this region.
In Chile, you'll have the opportunity to spend several days at Torres del Paine National Park, which was declared a Unesco Biosphere Reserve in 1978. This park is home to some of the most stunning scenery in the world – it is home to ice fields, green valleys, towering peaks and unique green and blue lakes. This is a great location to try out camping – tents and bedding are included.
If you love outdoor pursuits, you will find plenty to like about this part of Patagonia. Weather permitting, try the challenging hike along the valley of the Rio Asencio or take a boat trip on Lago Grey to get up close and personal with a mighty glacier.
If you're a hiker, you'll also enjoy stopping at El Chalten – a tiny settlement that provides the perfect base for exploring the amazing Fitzroy mountain range.
But our trips offer much more than hiking alone. When you travel to Patagonia with Grand American Adventures, you can also take part in a range of other optional activities, including horseback riding, a catamaran cruise or an evening of entertainment featuring tango dancers.

Your tour leader will also be able to help you plan which of the optional activities you wish to take part in while on your adventure.
