Patagonia 13-Day Tours & Itineraries
With almost two weeks there’s enough time to enjoy scenic tours of both the Argentine and Chilean regions of Patagonia. One option for active adventurers is to embark on a self-guided hike around the mountain trails running through the national parks of Chile’s scenic Lake District. Or you could venture deeper into Chilean Patagonia and visit with both Humboldt and Magellanic penguins followed by a trip around unspoiled fjords and glaciers. Another idea is a trip to Argentina’s far south to visit penguin colonies while touring the famous Beagle Channel in Tierra del Fuego, located at the end of the continent.

With this 13-day adventure, you’ll get the best of the region—in both countries— starting with Chilean Patagonia. Here you'll partake in the famed 'W' trek—a multi-day hike that covers the furthest reaches of Torres del Paine. Then bus over to Argentine Patagonia for ancient glaciers and the iconic Mt. Fitz Roy. Kick off the adventure in Chile's capital for a dose of big-city culture.
