Are You Ready to Fall in Love with South America?

 

A destination so diverse, any direction you go in is wonderful.
 

 
 
 
 

The more I travel to South America, the more I want to travel South America. Argentina and Chile are home to colorful culture, ancient history, and awesome exploration in some of the most extraordinary landscapes on the planet. As Outside GO’s expert trip designer for Latin America and the Poles, I have just returned from the ultimate journey to Patagonia, and I’m here to share my love for all things south of the equator with you. 

Are you a traveler who relishes the pleasures of the journey to remote reaches of the world? Do you love traveling long distances to actively interact with vast wildernesses where you are utterly exposed to untamed nature—giant glaciers, massive mountains, rare rain forests, lush lagoons, and stunning salt flats? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, you, too, are ready to fall in love with Argentina and Chile.

These countries have it all—cosmopolitan cities, cowboy country, glacier-cut valleys, and raging rivers. Each stunning environment features perfectly situated luxury outposts specializing in extraordinary experiences that connect you with the place, the planet, yourself, and your companions. Hear the sound of the silence broken by the crystalizing of salt within the walls of a 25-million-year-old valley, or a glacier calving and crashing into icy waters hundreds of feet below.

“Patagonia is not a destination for the faint of heart."

 
 
 
 
 

Patagonia is not a destination for the faint of heart. It is a place where you need to believe that every day is a great day to be outside. It is not a country or a place, it is a territory that is ruled by Mother Nature. Trekking to the tallest peaks is tough, but the views from the top are better than breathtaking. The rivers are a wild ride, and Patagonian horses run strong into the winds and rains. Wildlife roams free in this uncharted land rich with myriad daily adventures.

“I listened to the waterfalls and the call of the guanaco and I fell deeper in love with South America.”

 
 
 
 
 

I danced tango in the streets of Buenos Aires and indulged in the art of the empanada. I sampled various versions of pisco sours and shared many passings of the traditional maté cup. I trekked on the icy peaks of the third-largest glacier in the world, climbed massive mountains, and felt the warmth of the sun as the aspen trees glowed. I sat in front of the towers of Torres Del Paine on the shores of Lake Sarmiento without a cloud in the sky, and later watched as a storm passed and cleared into a rainbow framing the Paine plains. I listened to the waterfalls and the call of the guanaco, and I fell deeper in love with South America.

“No matter which particular destination you choose to pursue, everywhere is wonderful at this end of the earth.”

 
 
 
 
 
 

You, too, are ready to fall in love with Argentina and Chile if you have a passion for pure travel, crave unique environments, ooze the spirt of adventure, and are delighted to take comfort in distinctive properties that fit into their host landscapes. You will be expertly guided, but it honestly seems to me that no matter which particular destination you choose to pursue, everywhere is wonderful at this end of the earth.

Take the Ultimate Argentina + Chile adventure!
