January 26 – February 5, 2023

Join Isabelle from Admiral Travel in Argentine Patagonia.  It is is pristine and wild—the definition of an adventurer’s dream! Located at the southernmost tip of South America, this region is defined by its dramatic landscapes, incredible wildlife and unique pockets of culture.  To access, you’ll reach Buenos Aires, Argentina and connect first to the Lake District – one of the top highlights in the region.  Sitting below the Lake District, Southern Patagonia offers unforgettable sights such as Perito Moreno Glacier.   El Calafate is where you can dig into that rugged nature and get off the grid.

From there, we border cross to Torres del Paine National Park for a few days of adventure in one of the most untouched areas of the world! Torres del Paine National Park, in Chile’s Patagonia region, is known for its soaring mountains, bright blue icebergs that cleave from glaciers and golden pampas (grasslands) that shelter rare wildlife such as llama-like guanacos.

Cost: $9,860.00 per person, based on double occupancy

January 26-29, 2023 – Bariloche, Argentina

Welcome to Bariloche

Guarded by majestic mountains and Lake Nahuel Huapi, Bariloche stands proudly as the gateway to the stunning Lake District. This city has strong ties to central Europe as many families immigrated from Germany, Switzerland and Northern Italy over the past century. Their influence is easily found in the local culture and, of course, in the mountain-style architecture.

Bariloche is one of Argentina’s most exciting resorts, it offers mountain resort activities and every season is distinctively charming. Summer is best for outdoor activities and sports such as trout fishing, horseback riding, rafting, trekking and hiking. Enjoy lazy days at the lake at river beaches or more vigorous mountain climbing. In winter, Cerro Catedral is visited by increasing numbers of winter sports enthusiasts every year it is the largest and most developed ski resort in South America with 600 hectares (1,482 acres) of snow.

January 29-31, 2023 – Two days of hiking to see Mt. Fitz Roy & Cerro Torre

A full-day trek to the foot of mythical Mount Fitz Roy is one of the prettiest in the area.  Starting with a minibus pick up from your hotel and drive to the trailhead. Just before arriving, stop off at a scenic spot overlooking the Fitz Roy. On arrival at the trailhead, enter a beech and a forest bordering the Rio Blanco. Following this path, an hour’s walk leads to the first viewpoint with excellent views of Piedras Blancas Glacier. Continue for another 45 minutes Poincenot camp

Located next to Mount Fitz Roy, this is the other major trekking area, which ends in a beautiful view of the world’s most difficult mountains to scale, Cerro Torre. The half-day trail starts with a slight slope in the first few minutes, walking along the river course in the direction Fitz Roy. After 20 minutes, see Fitz Roy River Canyon and beautiful waterfalls. From here, stunning views of Cerro Torre begin to emerge. The first viewpoint ties in with the first break, 90 minutes from El Chalten. Here, you can also see Cerro Torre, its glaciers and the Adelas cord. Return to Chalten from here. This is a three-hour trek.   Walk for one hour through a slightly undulating valley to reach Base Camp De Agostini and, a few minutes later, Lagoon Torre, with its magnificent view of Cerro Torre, Egger flanked by needles, and Standard, Bifida and the Adelas cord, glaciers that spill into the lagoon.

Have you ever felt completely insignificant in comparison to nature? Well, get ready to feel precisely that way among the turquoise waters, glaciers and towering granite horns of the Torres del Paine National Park. The jaw-dropping landscapes of this eighth wonder of the world are humbling indeed.

Take full advantage of the 17 hours of daylight in summer and don’t miss out on sunrise, when the horns of the Torres del Paine massif glow purple and red. Sail on Lake Grey to admire the eponymous glacier, or paddle a kayak through its colossal blue and white icebergs.

You’ll enjoy terrific wildlife-watching in Torres del Paine. See majestic condors wheeling in the pristine skies overhead. Look out for foxes, huemul or Andean deer and guanacos along the way, and if you lie in wait patiently, you might be lucky enough to spot the reclusive puma.
