A visit to Patagonia is every well-seasoned travelers' dream. It should come as no surprise considering what can be found in the vastness of this legendary place, covering 400,000 square miles of land over Argentina and Chile.

This tour of the Argentinean Patagonia will take you to the End of the World, following Magellan and Darwin's footsteps, sailing the Beagel Channel and hiking in the Tierra del Fuego National Park, making it all the way to Ushuaia, the last inhabited place before Antarctica.

Marvel at the majestic Perito Moreno Glacier, 18 miles of solid ice, the third largest freshwater reserve in the world. Let the glacier's sudden roars startle you as shards snap off the ice wall. A short stay in postcard-perfect Bariloche should help recover from this emotionally loaded experience. The famous ski resort is an idyllic place for hiking, trekking or relaxing by the Nahuel Hauapi Lake, it is also the gateway to any adventure in The Los Arrayanes National Park. Do you need any more reasons to travel to Argentinian Patagonia?
