Explore the powerful glaciers, the beautiful wetlands, ancient forests and the stately Magellanic Penguins in an adventure you will never forget.
This program is for the girl who wants to experience Southern Patagonia in a variety of different ways. We will be kayaking through the Straits of Magellan and experiencing the local sea life, birds and shipwrecks in this beautiful area. A horse back ride through the wetlands and forests just outside of Punta Arenas with a gaucho will introduce you to the local culture of the Patagonia cowboy. Other highlights will include hiking through areas of Pali Aike National Park, a full day glacier cruise to the Serrano Glaciers and of course a zodiak trip to Marta and Magdalena Islands to see the Magellanic Penguins and sea lions!
Patagonia is a region located at the southern end of South America, shared by Argentina and Chile. The region comprises the southern section of the Andes mountains to the southwest towards the Pacific Ocean and from the east of the mountain range to the valleys it follows the Colorado River south towards Carmen de Patagones in the Atlantic Ocean.
Participants should be physically fit, able to hike and paddle for at least two hour stretches and have an interest in experiencing
a different culture at the bottom of the world.
