A Natural Wonderland
Flying low across the sinuous Santa Cruz River as you land in Calafate, the sensation of being transported into another reality is inescapable. The magnificent silence and vast expanses of this gorgeous landscape make it easy to imagine a 23-year-old Charles Darwin rowing his boat up this very same river and uncovering the turquoise water of Lago Argentina, then unknown and unnamed, just as we do now. Spend the first days rapt and beholden by the majesty of the local glaciers, including the legendary Perito Moreno. Then, make your way to an even more remote piece of paradise on the southwestern shore of Lago Viedma, where you’ll have privileged access to UNESCO world heritage site, Los Glaciares National Park. Spend your last three nights among the verdant forests of Peuma Hue and fully immersing yourselves in the natural wonderland that is Northern Patagonia.
