Patagonia - Trip of a Lifetime!

We spend five days day-hiking Torres del Pane National Park and then another week cruising to Cape Horn and exploring Punta Arenas and Ushuaia. Perhaps there is no more beautiful place on earth. If you are into photography. as I am, your camera will get a real workout!

I am going to Patagonia next month as part of a tour of Argentina, Brazil and Chile. I am looking forward to several hikes, seeing glaciers, and exploring this beautiful part of the world.

If you’re into nature, I’ve always wanted to visit the Los Glaciares National Park

Also if you’re spending any time in Buenos Aires, we’ve got a pretty sweet guide for some self-guided time there:

It’s a strenuous, all-day hike, but the seeing the towers up close at the end of a hike through Torres del Paine National Park is well worth it.

I stayed at Remota, which was quite a nice hotel with striking architecture, but also an hour+ drive from the park:

If money is no object, this stunning hotel is actually within the park:
