Southern Patagonia

Where Condors Soar over Mountains and Cobalt Lakes

Argentine Patagonia is a land of arid terraced plains, rising towards the glaciers and icefields of the Andes. Volcanic eruptions formed the central plateau, and ice streams cut away the land to form lakes and basins. Geologists and geographers here are in their element, but so too are hikers and wildlife lovers.

Patagonia’s birdlife is abundant. The Andean condor soars high above the mountain peaks, while closer to the ground you’ll find southern caracara, austral parakeet, and even green-backed firecrown. Chilean flamingo and upland goose inhabit watery areas, whilst along the coastline there are colonies of comic Magellanic penguin
 
The islands of the Tierra del Fuego are arguably Patagonia’s most exciting destinations, on account of the variety of terrain and the broad range of species which live there. Sailing, kayaking, and hiking you can expect to see condor and albatross, sea lion and guanaco.

Complete your journey with a ride on the Southern Fuegian Railway, the train to the end of the world. This heritage railway has as its terminus Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world.

Accommodation:
EOLO
In the south of Argentina, between El Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park, is the active paradise called EOLO. Hike or mountain bike between lakes and glaciers, then indulge in some sublime stargazing by night. Moonless, the sky’s a profound inky black.
Accommodation:
Arakur Resort and Spa
Ushuaia is right at the end of the earth, the most southerly city in the world. Arakur sits on a rocky outcrop above the city, looking over Ushuaia to the Beagle Channel and the snow-topped mountains of the Cerro Alarkén Natural Reserve.
Accommodation:
Los Cauquenes
All roads south ultimately lead to Ushuaia, and therefore also to Los Cauquenes. This resort and spa offers five-star accommodation at the end of the world, a pristine natural environment, and excellent service. The spa and wellness treatments are an added bonus at the end of a tiring day outdoors.
Accommodation:
Alto Calafate
Look out of the window at Alto Calafate and you’ll see not only Lake Argentino before you, but also the snow-capped mountains beyond. Nothing gets in the way of that view. It’s one of our first choices for local hikes and also for longer excursions into the Los Glaciares National Park.
Accommodation:
Estancia Cristina
Estancia Cristina is your remote cabin on the shore of Lake Argentino. The only way to get across the valley is by boat and anticipation builds as you journey through remarkable scenery. The location of this simple, ranch style property is everything: rugged, wild, and stunning.
