Patagonia 2-Week Tours & Itineraries
The proverbial two week vacation is ideal for lazing on tropical beaches, visiting amusement parks and… embarking on the adventure of a lifetime in the unspoiled wilderness that is Patagonia. If you’re a fiend for long-distance nature hikes, head straight for the world-renowned Torres del Paine National Park, in Chilean Patagonia for their epic eight-day O Circuit Trek.
For shorter day hikes visit the mammoth glaciers and towering Mt. Fitz Roy located in the UNESCO World Heritage Centre of Los Glaciares National Park, in Argentina. Or combine both of them in a southern-Patagonian adventure that also includes a cruise along the Beagle Channel, in Tierra del Fuego, and a visit to an island home to a colony of Magellanic penguins.

Two weeks is a fantastic length of time to experience Southern Argentina. After kicking off in Buenos Aires, fly to Patagonia for glaciers and treks around Los Glaciares National Park (and iconic Mt. Fitz Roy). Then head to Ushuaia—the southernmost city in the world—for canoeing, channel cruising, and frolicking with penguins. Each night is another opportunity to taste the region's best food, wine, and local culture.
Explore the best sites of Southern Patagonia (both countries) on this two-week adventure. First, there's Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina Patagonia for a boat trip to Perito Moreno Glacier. Next is Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia for three days of guided hikes. Head back across the border to Ushuaia—the southernmost city in the world—for ice trekking and free time to see the penguins.
This two-week Chilean trip combines the southern tip of Patagonia with a major trek in Torres del Paine National Park. Starting from Santiago, fly to Punta Arenas for neoclassical architecture and penguins before heading to Puerto Natales—the jumping on/off point for Torres del Paine. Then join the Paine Massif Circuit ("O"), a more challenging option than its sister trek ("W"). You'll beat the crowds by hiking the remote backside of the park for an even more memorable experience with nature.
