We’ve been tailoring custom journeys for clients since our very inception in the mid-1980s! The process is all about connecting the interests of the travelers with the best that a given destination has to offer. To achieve this, we rely upon good ol’ fashioned conversation! Our geographically focused travel designer love to meet new people and learn about their interests for travel. Understanding your goals informs the process immensely and serves as the foundation for the development of a bespoke travel experience for you and yours.

The trip detailed on this web page is a sample of something we’ve done for other clients over the years. In order to start the process of designing your own custom travel experience, just call us at (800) 445-2995 and ask to speak with one of our Travel Advisors. After a bit of time on the phone, you will then have the opportunity to connect with one of our travel designers.

The entire planning process is very personalized and works in an iterative fashion until a final, perfect trip has been created. We then secure all of the lodging, activities, and guided experiences associated with your trip and send along abundant trip materials capturing these details – and much more about your travels!


Days 1-2: Buenos Aires

Arrive in Buenos Aires. Explore this vibrant, cosmopolitan city on your own or with a guide.

Make the most of your full days with a private naturalist guide as you hike and explore Los Glaciares National Park. Your guide will tailor activities to your interests and energy level. 

Day 6-8: Lago Viedma, Helsingfors

A private driver takes you along Lago Viedma to Hosteria Helsingfors (which is still in Los Glaciares) for three days of hiking, riding, wildlife watching, and appreciating great food and hospitality. Stunningly nestled in a “Lord of the Rings” setting, the intimate hostería offers panoramic views of the lake, Mount FitzRoy, and the Andes Mountains. 

Days 9-12: El Calfate, Perito Moreno Glacier

A driver takes you back to El Calafate, your next base for adventure. This sets you up perfectly for a guided day at the incredible Perito Moreno Glacier, and a day of guided kayaking at the Upsala Glacier.
