Argentina:An unforgettable trip in Patagonia, active trekking trip

You are here:

Endless steppes, magical beech forests, diverse wildlife and lakes of different blue, green and turquoise colors at the foot of granite colossuses – this is the epitome of Patagonia. On this trip you will visit exactly these great highlights. Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Moreno Glacier and the Torres del Paine. But a visit to the vibrant city of Buenos Aires should not be missed either, as a contrast to the tranquility of the Pampas. The mixture of optional excursions and days off make this trip an individual experience.
