Just like a great wine, here at Quasar, we believe that travel too, gets better with age! Once the kids have left home, you’re now free to explore the globe and do something to reward yourself for all those years of hard work. If you’re looking for your next holiday destination with stunning landscapes, incredible food, rich culture and a bit of luxury, here’s why Patagonia is a top destination for over 50 travel.

1. Patagonia Isn’t Just for Backpackers Anymore

When the facilities of Patagonia’s National Parks were limited to camping and basic refuges, it was a destination that naturally drew in a younger crowd of hikers and nature enthusiasts. However, these days, Patagonia has opened up as a destination for all ages. With a great range of places to stay throughout Chile and Argentina, there’s no need to ‘rough it’ anymore. On any Quasar tour, you can choose from our gold 5-star package or silver 4-star package for full access to some of the regions finest accommodation options and menu of daily excursions. Many also have world-class spas so you can relax in total style at the end of each day making our packages the perfect Patagonia tours for seniors.

2. Options for All Ability Levels

Whether you’re a well-seasoned hiker or prefer to see the sites from the comfort of a luxury Jeep, there’s absolutely no reason why Patagonia’s outdoors can be enjoyed by people of any fitness level. Sit back and relax to breathtaking views or challenge yourself with some amazing short and fun walks that are ideal for people who haven’t done a solid hike in a while. Of course, there’s longer day hikes such as the Base of the Towers. Regardless of your preference for activity level, there’s no better time than now to get out and enjoy the fresh air of this part of the world.
