safari experience
torres del paine national park in chile & los glaciares national park in argentina

These are our top of the line Overland Safaris, offering the full extent of the very best that both Chilean and Argentinean Southern Patagonia have to offer. Our safaris include a unique mix of 5 or 4 Star hotels, depending on whether you select the GOLD or the SILVER version. You can also choose between a Self-Drive or a Guided Safari. On both programs you have access to a full menu of excursions to choose from throughout both National Parks.

We begin at the Fjord of Last Hope in Chile, before venturing into the heart of Torres del Paine National Park. Then it's on to experience the far reaches of Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina and the famous Perito Moreno Glacier for the ultimate Patagonia experience.

    self-drive

    On a Self-Drive tour, you are in complete control of your adventure as you drive around the National Parks. Enjoy the maximum freedom of a self-drive experience, while relying on the 24/7 support of our Patagonia staff and the state of the art navigation equipment we provide.

    This equipment includes a GARMIN GPS navigation system, a full interactive itinerary and expedition manual, a GPS tracker and a Satellite phone. On top of this, you always have the 24/7 support of our Patagonia team to help you anytime along the expedition

  • guided tours
    guided

    On a Guided tour, you drive around the National Parks accompanied by a tour guide in your vehicle who can also assist with the driving. Your guide is there to make sure every moment of your adventure is fun, safe and memorable and they take care of all the details of your trip. You can even opt for an more private option where your guide will escort you around the Parks in their own separate vehicle. Please inquire with us for more details on this second option, available at an extra cost.

    READ MORE

    Guided tours add a little bit of additional pampering, as our expert guides show you around the National parks while taking care of all the details of your trip. A Guided Safari is the perfect option for those who don’t want to worry about a thing.

FOR RESERVATIONS FOR 1 TO 5 TRAVELERS:

  • To confirm a Patagonia reservation: An $800 USD non-refundable per person deposit is due from the Customer at the time of booking.
  • Final Payment: Final Payment is due from the Customer at 65 days prior to departure

FOR RESERVATIONS OVER 5+ TRAVELERS, please inquire with us about the Payment & Cancellation Policies.

Forms of payment: Forms of payment accepted by the Tour Company include wire transfers, credit cards and checks. Detailed information regarding forms of payment will appear on the Customer’s invoice or will be provided upon request by the Tour Company. For Travel professionals, please note we do not accept credit card payments, only wire transfers or checks.

Payments are due in the Tour Company’s offices on the due date specified on the passenger’s invoice and should be sent in a timely fashion to arrive by the above mentioned date. Failure to do so may result in the release of cabins, with rebooking subject to availability at the desecration of the Tour Company.

cancellations

FOR RESERVATIONS FOR 1 TO 5 TRAVELERS:

The following cancellation fees will be applied to the Customer according to the number of days prior to departure that the Tour Company receives written notice of cancellation from the Customer. All cancellations must be made in writing and should be sent via email to the sales agent who made the Customer’s reservation for the Tour Company.

How to guard against cancellation fees: The Tour Company strongly recommends the Customer purchase trip cancellation / interrupt insurance directly after the reservation is confirmed.

For passengers with pre-existing conditions: coverage must typically be purchased from a travel insurance company within 24 hours from the time a reservation is confirmed to cover cancellation resulting from the pre-existing condition.
