Full trip itinerary


  • Day 1: Overnight Flight to Chile

    Sit back, relax, and unwind on your overnight flight to Santiago, Chile—the capital city of the country, and your base from which you’ll enter the Patagonia Region. Hope you packed a travel pillow for the plane, because you are in for plenty of neck craning in awe of the giant mountains on this trip.

  • Day 2: Arrive in Santiago + Welcome Dinner

    Welcome to Chile! Santiago is an incredible, vibrant city that looks like someone dropped the world’s newest skyscrapers next to the most ornate churches and placed the stunning Andes Mountains behind it all.

    Wander around Santiago’s city center and artsy neighborhoods with a pisco sour (the national alcoholic beverage) in hand.

    Today's highlights:

    • Land at the airport and meet a waiting EF representative.
    • Transfer to your hotel to check in and meet your fellow travelers.
    • Check out street art and trendy venues along Barrio Bellavista on an introductory sightseeing walk with your Tour Director.
    • Make a stop at Plaza de Armas or Kilometer Zero—where the distance between different cities of the country begins to be measured.
    • Enjoy a Welcome Dinner of local cuisine and drinks with fellow travelers at an authentic local spot.
  • Day 3: Fly to Punta Arenas + Travel to Puerto Natales

    Things are going south today (don’t worry it’s a good thing). Fly way down the country to Punta Arenas, one of the furthest south large cities anywhere in the world then work your way back up to Puerto Natales.

    Today's highlights:

    • Fly just about to the bottom of the Earth from Santiago to Punta Arenas.
    • Enjoy a fresh, authentic, Argentinean lunch at an estancia—ranch.
    • Board the bus and keep your eyes peeled for condors en route.
    • Arrive in Puerto Natales—the gateway to Parque Nacional Torres del Paine and home to panoramic views, good craft brews, local shops and handmade crafts.
  • Day 4: Explore Torres del Paine National Park

    Funky mountains and breathtaking glaciers galore are on the menu today, and friend, it is going to be a feast. You’re going to Chile’s Patagonian pride and joy: Torres del Paine National Park. The park is named after the three spiky granite towers that you simply can’t miss. Get ready—this is what you came here for.

    Today's highlights:

    • Prepare for your mind to melt and your camera roll to be filled on a full day guided tour of the rugged must-sees of Torres del Paine.
    • See firsthand how Lago del Toro got its name, no bull.
    • Spot icebergs in glacial Grey Lake.
    • See a shade of blue you didn’t know existed at Lake Pehoé.
    • Fuel up with an included lunch.
    • Stop at Cueva del Milodón en route back to Puerto Natales to see the caves that once housed extinct giant sloths 10,000+ years ago and cave people 8,000 years ago.
  • Day 5: Travel to Argentina + Explore El Calafate

    Cross the border into Argentina today: land of steak, soccer, and gauchos. El Calafate is a little town of warm vibes and close proximity to glaciers. Hop your private bus to El Calafate in the morning and get ready to tango with Argentina.

    Today's highlights:

    • Cross another country off your list as you travel from Chile to Argentina.
    • Arrive in El Calafate and take advantage of a free afternoon getting acquainted with the town.

    Free time suggestions

    Avenida del Libertor San Martín: The main shopping drag of El Calafate has something for everyone. Wander in and out of the artisan souvenir shops, sample craft beers, or chow down on the famous Patagonian lamb dishes.

    Laguna Nimez: Can’t wait for more nature? Take a short walk to Laguna Nimez—a nature reserve in town that over 80 species of bird, including flamingos, call home.

  • Day 6: Explore El Perito Moreno Glacier

    Two things you can always count on: steak tastes better with a glass of Argentinean malbec wine, and El Perito Moreno Glacier won’t shrink anytime soon. That’s right, despite climate change speeding up the melting of most glaciers, El Perito Moreno remains inexplicably strong. Today is all about hiking this resilient glacial king.

    Today's highlights:

    • Trek one of the world’s most beautiful glaciers with expert guides.
    • Discover lagoons & geological oddities on a full day hike of El Perito Moreno.
    • Wash down a day’s work with a well-earned glass of whiskey served over glacier ice.
  • Day 7: Enter Glacier National Park

    Hey kid, wanna see the Andes Mountains? You’re in luck. El Chaltén is a little Andean mountain village that packs a lot of beauty into a small area. Like a lot a lot. And it’s all contained within your next stop: Argentina’s Glacier National Park.

    Please note: All outdoor and hiking activities may be adjusted on tour due to local conditions, such as weather or trail closures.

    Today's highlights:

    • Drive by the mind-blowing Andes Mountains en route to El Chaltén within Glacier National Park.
    • Relax and recover in El Chaltén.
  • Day 8: Full Day Mt. Fitz Roy Trek

    You didn’t come to Patagonia to not go big on a full-day hike, did you? Today you’ll get up close and personal, trekking to the base of the nutso 11,000 foot high granite tower they call Mt. Fitz Roy around here. Get stoked, you’re gonna do great.

    Hike Info

    Distance: 12 miles

    Elevation: 2,959 feet

    Today's highlights:

    • Head out bright and early for your guided hike to Mt. Fitz Roy.
    • Check out sweeping views of the De Las Vueltas River Valley as you ascend.
    • Climb through scrub forest and rocky wilderness up toward Mt. Fitz Roy.
    • Finish the hike at the foot of the mountain, where views of the turquoise Laguna De Los Tres reward your effort.
    • Return to El Chaltén for some much needed relaxation.
  • Day 9: Fly to Buenos Aires

    By now your legs are surely sore and your heart is surely full. Time to hit the big city for a little Latin American culture. You’re going to Buenos Aires: the colorful megapolis that gave us the tango dance, the current Pope, and your next travel crush of a city.

    Today's highlights:

    • Board your flight from El Calafate to Buenos Aires and fly over the very same mountains you’ve been trekking.
    • Arrive in Buenos Aires and get to know the city with your Tour Director.
  • Day 10: Explore Buenos Aires + Optional Bike Tour + Farewell Dinner

    After the long, active days you've had, you deserve some time to slow down and wander through one of the world's most exciting capitals. From rich architecture to vibrant arts, you’ll quickly feel the energy pulsing through the city.

    Today's highlights:

    • Wander through Buenos Aires most notable sights
    • Share some last laughs at an included farewell dinner with the group. You’re not leaving tonight—but this is your last dinner all together with your new travel family.

    Buenos Aires bike tour (extra cost)

    Hop on a bike, pedal around town, and get to know Buenos Aires from a new POV with a local guide. 

  • Day 11: Overnight Flight Home

    So this is it: the final day of your Patagonia adventure. The hiking blisters will fade, but the memories and new friendships will last a lifetime. Take one final day to pop in and out of markets, grab that last souvenir, and raise a toast to your group before you fly home tonight.

    Free time suggestions

    Milonga: For those of you just as excited to get some use out of your dancing shoes as your hiking boots, hit up a milonga. Simply put, it’s a place where you can tango dance. Let’s see what you’ve got!

    Café Tortoni: Opened in 1858, this regal café is one of the oldest in Argentina, and a reliably excellent place for a café con leche and some top-notch people watching.

  • Day 12: Arrive Home

    Your next destination awaits—home, and you’ll arrive there in the late morning or early afternoon after your overnight flight.

      Anonymous, traveled Mar. 2024

    This was my second EF trip, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an more adventurous option! It was very active, but well worth the workout. We had active events every other day. Travel and explore the local town one day, followed by hiking/exploring the next day. I'd definitely recommend getting your workout routine going before this trip! Juan P... See more

  • Pumas, Proposals, Piscos, Patagonia!!!

      Alex, traveled Mar. 2024

    This trip is UNREAL. The views are stunning, the water is crystal clear and delicious, and the food is awesome! I didn't have a single underwhelming meal here even once. That all said, it's very important to have realistic expectations here. The travel days are LONG, and it is a ton of travel time! Places are remote and far between, and that's just something...

  • Just do it!

      Alexandra, traveled Feb. 2024

    This trip was incredible! I have no regrets. It’s incredible to know that places like that exist. Juan Pablo was great, just so kind and willing to help out. The local guides for the big hikes through Torres del Paine and Mt Fitz Roy were incredible—I loved picking their brains! Just be prepared—this trip is pretty active and you do need to be ready for that... See more

  • Bucket list trip!

      Megan, traveled Feb. 2024

    It was an amazing trip! The views, the food, the wildlife, and the people all made it a trip of a lifetime! There was quite a bit of traveling but I was prepared for that and felt it was well balanced with activities. Juan Pablo was an awesome guide! The glacier hike was mind blowing- a bucket list experience! Loved the hikes and wished there was time to do ... See more
