Itinerary idea in detail

With international flights from a choice of airports including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Santiago.

  • Arrive into Santiago after your international flight. From the airport you will have a private transfer into the city and take a half day tour of Santiago to get acquainted with the city.

  • This morning you will have a private transfer to the airport for your domestic flight to Punta Arenas. Once in Punta Arenas you will be met by a representative from your all-inclusive lodge and transferred with other guests into Torres del Paine National Park.

  • Today you will be out exploring the highlights of Torres del Paine. Excursions can range from gentle walks to full day treks. Horseback riding and more cultural outings can also be arranged.

  • Trekking is a highlight of any visit to Torres del Paine. You can opt for something on the easy side like taking the Paine Mountain Path or full day treks that will take you to the base of the famous towers.

  • A shared transfer across the border into Argentina will be arranged by the lodge. You will be dropped off at your hotel in El Calafate and have the afternoon and evening at your leisure.

  • Leave the town and spend the day on a working estancia on the Patagonian steppe, where you will learn about the people who call Patagonia home. Of course, no visit would be complete without a traditional asado.

  • This morning you will have a private transfer to the airport for your flight to Ushuaia. Upon arrival you will have another private transfer to your hotel. The afternoon has been left at your leisure in anticipation of the journey ahead, but Tierra del Fuego offers plenty in the way of exploration, and excursions can be arranged.

  • Enjoy some free time in the morning to explore the city before you board the ship and set sail along the Beagle Channel. Settle in to your cabin.
