Trip Motif Hiking Walking Exploring Patagonia : Journey Highlights






Enjoy a personal introduction to the people and places of Patagonia on an adventure that offers infinite opportunity to connect. The trip begins in Los Glaciares National Park, with its breathtaking views of the famous massifs FitzRoy and Cerro Torre. Exploring gentle trails and beech forests by day, you unwind each evening in a cozy hostería. A wonderful estancia stay follows, with opportunities to ride with gauchos, hike, or relax. Spectacular Perito Moreno Glacier marks the grand finale. A boat ride close to the glacier’s 200-foot high wall puts you in perfect position to witness the dramatic sight of huge ice pillars calving into the lake.

  • Hiking: Enjoy your choice of gentle walks or more strenuous trails in forest, pampas, foothill, and mountain terrain.
  • Horseback riding: If you would like to, you can ride with gauchos on excellent Argentine mounts across the pampas or through beech forests.
  • Perito Moreno Glacier: The dramatic formations, sounds, and shifts of this enormous “river of ice” make a lasting impression.
  • Estancia stay: Experience gracious rural hospitality on a historic estancia set in a stunning landscape of deep forest, open steppes, and soaring peaks.

“This exceptional journey blends cultural interaction with the region’s outstanding geographic highlights to create a remarkable travel experience.” —Pam Bryan, Off the Beaten Path Co-founder
