Expedition to the Land of Giants - Patagonia

Ahhh! …Patagonia. One of our favorite destinations. Although the 19th-century explorer Florence Dixie first described this land as an “uninviting and feared,” by the end of her expedition she wrote in her journal: “The sights well repaid us for our troubles.”

The land of the mythical Patagon giants has been appropriately dubbed “The End of the World.” We at Surtrek don’t say this for its geographical location alone, but for its “spirit” as well. The vast, windswept expanses of barely touched wilderness and silent landscapes truly reflect the world’s extremes. In this stunning environment, an inspiring journey awaits. Remote and pure, this place will evoke all the romance and adventure within you.

Speaking of romance, let’s take a little detour and talk about spending your perfect honeymoon in Patagonia. Just picture the two of you in an intimate wood-cabin lodge, surrounded by dense forests but with spectacular views of snowcapped mountains looming above. Imagine yourselves cuddling in front of a roaring fireplace or in an outdoor hot tub (something you’ll have to try). In this remote and seemingly inhospitable land, the two of you will also share in some of the most exquisite and avant-garde cuisine in all South America. I mean, where else will you find such a delectable fusion of African and Patagonian dining? What’s more, you can pack up these delicacies and take them on a luxurious picnic on the shore of an emerald-green lake.

But while romance is definitely nice, without an adventurous spirit you won’t have fully experienced this region. On an adventure tour, you’ll have a chance to go on long treks in which you’ll camp in the most pristine wilderness, or climb soaring granite towers, or kayak as close as prudently possible to massive, thundering glaciers. In these glaciers, by the way, you can occasionally find ice tunnels that are a thrill to wander through. And how about a Patagonian safari? Consider the possibility of looking out onto a grazing herd of Guanacos while you camp in the towering forest above the expansive plain.

On a Surtrek tour, we can also blend romance and adventure with culture and heritage. Learn what it takes to be a real “gaucho.” Explore the plains on horseback, make camp and fire up a Patagonian grill (a definite must).

If these experiences aren’t quite enough, you can always stop through a quirky Southern Cone town for a couple of glasses of fine local wine. As a matter of fact, you’ll find wineries where you can sample earthy, full-bodied flavors and bouquets. Still not enough? Remember, Surtrek also has a selection of glacier cruises and even Antarctic expeditions to complement all this. On these cruises, you’ll travel even deeper towards the End of the World, allowing you to witness what very few have been able …discovering a realm of majesty and overwhelming beauty.

As you’ve already have noted, there is an entire range of activities in Patagonia. But perhaps what Dixie saw — or rather, what she experienced — will be inspirational: That simple yet transcendental moment of sheer delight.

This is not your ordinary vacation, but your experience of the best of Patagonia (in both Chile and Argentina). Set out and explore the land of the giants, and sense and discover your own horizon at the End of the World. Surtrek welcomes you to your own unique and personalized journey in Patagonia.
