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.
