Experiences of a lifetime

In the southern Andes mountains lies one of the most beautiful places on Earth… Patagonia. Astonishing landscapes of jagged Andean peaks and deep fjords carved by glaciers... panoramic vistas of living ice that changes shape and color by the angle of the sun, amid deep water lakes of emerald and turquoise. No wonder some local legends hold that extraterrestrials once lived here.

Join us for Tauck's remarkable 11-day Patagonia tours through stunning fjords, glaciers, turquoise lakes, jagged, dramatic mountains valleys populated by exotic wildlife – with an opportunity to experience a slice of daily life in the Patagonian outback. Experience the exotic flora and amazing wildlife of Torres del Paines National Park; Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the wonders of the world; cruises on the Ultima Esperanza Fjord and the Lago Argentina; a private visit to one of the world’s most famous silversmiths; a private lunch at a ranch where gauchos demonstrate their skills; a private wine pairing dinner in Puerto Natales; excursions led by local guides and naturalists, and so much more... on a Patagonia travel experience that's second to none.

Cruising Patagonia's fjords

Day 3

Glaciers galore in O'Higgins National Park

Cruise Patagonia's fjords through Última Esperanza Sound, stopping for a hike in the interestingly named Bernardo O'Higgins National Park, which encompasses a large part of the Southern Patagonian Icefield, and is chock full of glaciers... including Pío XI, Chico, Jorge Montt, Chico, Témpano, Penguin and O'Higgins. The park, by the way, is named for Gen. Bernardo O'Higgins, the illegitimate son of an Irish-born Spanish officer, who became an independent Chile's first head of state in the 19th century.

The rugged Torres del Paine National Park

Day 4

A spectacular nature preserve in Patagonia

Torres del Paine National Park, in Chile's Patagonian region, is an incredible collection of natural treasures dominated by a unique trio of granite peaks with serrated edges that jut dramatically skyward – the Torres del Paine – also known as Cleopatra’s Needles. Against this rocky backdrop, the park’s shimmering lakes are vivid emerald or turquoise – caused by the rock flour produced by the constant glacial grinding of the mountains. And for the record, "Torres del Paine" translates to "Blue Towers" – "paine" means "blue" in the region's Tehuelche language.

Gauchos and silversmiths

Day 10

Gaucho and silver traditions combine in San Antonio del Areco

The traditions of Argentina's gauchos (cowboys) run strong in the town of San Antonio de Areco. And so do the artisanal traditions of the Draghi family and its patriarch, Areco-born master silversmith Juan José Draghi, whose workshop, founded here in the 1960s, created world-famous customized silver pieces for folks ranging from local gauchos to US Presidents. Today, Draghi's work and traditions are carried on by his grown children. See examples of their exquisite silver and saddlery evoking the region's gaucho culture at their studio and museum; you may also see their work among the cowboys demonstrating their equestrian skills during your visit.

The Singular Patagonia

Nights 2, 3, 4 and 5

Nature and history meet at The Singular Patagonia

With a privileged surrounding of unparalleled natural beauty, The Singular Patagonia is a space of extreme sophistication, incredible history and the highest levels of personalized service at the so-called “end of the world,” deep in the heart of Chilean Patagonia. Just over a century ago (1915, to be exact), the buildings that are now The Singular were built as the Bories cold-storage plant, which received sheep from local estancias and prepared the meat and wool for export. When the former factory was converted to the luxury hotel you'll stay in today, a museum was created to preserve the plant's original century-old industrial machinery, for which the factory was declared a historic monument in 1996.
