SOUTHERN ANDES FALL COLOURS
ARGENTINA & CHILE
April 15 – 25, 2019
Stunning landscapes, culture, creative and nature…
This is an Ultimate PATAGONIA Photo Adventure!
The southern Andes Mountains of Chile and Argentina is one of the greatest wilderness locations on this earth. Its true name is Patagonia. The Andean mountains cut through the plains to offer some of the most beautiful landscapes imaginable. To add to this, we will be targeting the amazing fall colours. Beech trees and other species start to change colour just before the onset of winter. Add snow capped peaks with this colour and you have a unique recipe for outstanding creative images. Join our adventure in the depth of Patagonia! 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.
