Travel to Patagonia in the southern reaches of South America. Patagonia is a region that stands as the very definition of wildness: massive, granite horns thrust from the ground and painted by the sun; fields of ice and glaciers as old as time; and forests and lakes that dwarf those who visit this distant land. International Expeditions’ Patagonia tour takes in this land’s most stunning, landscapes, culture and wildlife. Shining as the crowning jewel in this glittering land is Torres del Paine National Park, internationally renowned as one of the most beautiful, unspoiled and remote places on the planet. This gem is like a separate country perched at the edge of a great continent — brimming with wildlife, dazzling landscapes and activities that are uniquely Torres del Paine.
