With an almost legendary status, Patagonia is the region that covers the southern halves of Chile and Argentina. This is a land of almost unimaginable size from vast open plains to towering peaks, a true wilderness of spectacular beauty.

Why travel to Patagonia

From the rugged beauty of the Andes to the untamed majesty of Patagonia’s glaciers and fjords, the awe-inspiring landscapes are complemented by an array of thrilling adventures we can curate for you.

For unparalleled outdoor experiences, we collaborate with expert local guides who possess intimate knowledge of Patagonia’s wilderness, offering top-notch hiking, horseback riding, and fishing excursions. If you seek refined comforts amidst nature’s splendour, we can recommend exclusive lodges nestled within the stunning surroundings of Torres del Paine National Park, El Chaltén, Patagonia National Park or the Perito Moreno Glacier, plus many of the more remote corners of this vast region.


Hidden amongst this startling landscape is a surprising range of wildlife to discover, from guanacos and armadillos to Patagonian foxes and even puma. Do remember to look up though as condors are often overhead, while woodpeckers and owls can be spotted among the trees.

There is a rich human history here to discover, from ancient petroglyphs and rock art to the story of Welsh settlers and the gauchos of the last two centuries. Patagonia really does offer so much on so many levels.

Whatever we design for your tailor-made holiday in Patagonia, you can rest assured that every aspect of your trip will be totally seamless, so that all your focus can be on enjoying this otherworldly and magical destination.
