SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT

Puerto Varas and Bariloche both embrace chocolate. Hot chocolate involves melting pure chocolate into warm milk, and the actual chocolates are a highlight. Make sure you allow time, and leave room, to fit them in.

FLEXIBLE ITINERARIES

Most of our itineraries are private journeys, just for you. They are flexible, so we can tweak them for you, maybe add extra days, combine trips or upgrade hotels.
We know Patagonia well and will happily make suggestions based on your interests.
