TOUR 2 – This is a new location for us, on roads less visited. We target locations in northern Patagonia (Chile) that few travellers have visited and even fewer photographers. Be one of the first to explore a region of Patagonia that has only opened up in the last few years.
This fantastic tour is inclusive of most land travel expenses from excellent accommodation to local guide, transport and of course your world class photo guide. Further details are as per the tour itinerary. The vehicle we use is a comfortable A/C van. We travel in a small group which provides flexible arrangements that ordinary tours with their usual large groups can not provide. We can not stress enough how the following combination of leading world experts will make this a holiday of a life time! This experienced team will put you in the right place at the right time and introduce you to special opportunities like meeting local people in small villages and unique behind-the-scene locations. They will go beyond the ‘call of duty’ to make sure that you have a great holiday.
Tour 1 explores the traditional Patagonian wilderness of Los Glaciers National Park and Torres del Paine, while Tour 2 explores the newly opened region further north. Both are different, yet will offer you outstanding landscapes, nature and creative adventures. And yes, fall colours…
Plus, we are offering linked optional adventures from a unique 4 hour tango shoot in the streets of Buenos Aires, to a 3 day hummingbird and nature adventure just a short trip away from Buenos Aires. (Details are available in Tour 1 itinerary.)
