Enjoy the rare privilege of face-to-face encounters with two of the world’s last great frontiers: Southern Patagonia’s majestic fjords and glaciers, and Torres del Paine’s stunning scenery. Along with visits to Buenos Aires and Santiago, discover South America’s remarkable diversity as you connect with other Badgers.
This tour begins with three nights in vibrant Buenos Aires. Here, you can immerse yourself in Palermo’s lovely mansions and parks, peruse the colorful bohemian La Boca district, and experience dinner and a show at one of the city’s top tango houses.
After visiting Argentina’s capital, journey to Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city. Explore this resort town before boarding a comfortable ship for an extraordinary four-night cruise through the famed Tierra del Fuego archipelago. On this cruise, you will sail through the Beagle Channel, fabled Cape Horn, and Strait of Magellan. Also, you will experience shore excursions to spectacular glaciers and visit Magdalena Island’s immense penguin colony.
Disembarking in Punta Arenas, travel to the dramatic Torres del Paine for a three-night stay with daily excursions. Home to jagged mountains, ice-blue glaciers, and turquoise lakes, you will encounter natural wilderness wonders like the Grey Glacier, Cascada del Rio Paine waterfall, and the crystalline Amarga and Azul lagoons. The South American adventure concludes with two nights in the sophisticated Chilean capital of Santiago. Sightsee, dine in a gracious family’s home, and tour a local winery and the colorful old port of Valparaiso. With a two-day/two-night pre-tour option, discover magnificent Iguazú Falls, one of the world’s iconic landmarks. Expand your travels while expanding your Badger spirit.
