How we approached Cyril's trip
"I organised Cyril's trip around his interest in photography, so as to take in some of Patagonia’s most scenic destinations. Knowing he was a keen photographer, I was keen for Cyril to visit in April, to benefit from the autumn colours, as the leafy greens turn to rich reds and browns. The trip took him to both El Calafate and El Chalten in Argentina, before crossing the Patagonian steppe into Chile and onto Torres del Paine National Park.
They were doing the trip on a self-drive basis, which allowed Cyril to access parts of the national park that the group excursions wouldn’t usually cover. For anyone looking to experience Patagonia at its most visual and dramatic, I always recommend visiting throughout autumn, to not only benefit from the festival of colour, but also the lesser foot traffic in the national parks, providing a more personal experience in one of the world’s wildest destinations."
