Wildlife & Glaciers Of Patagonia

From: £Contact us

From the Valdés Peninsula and Perito Moreno Glacier to Tierra del Fuego, this 13-day holiday explores Patagonia – home to a unique assemblage of wildlife and an astonishing variety of landscapes.

Patagonia is one of the world's wildest and most biologically fascinating areas. The closest continental land mass to the Antarctic, connected to the supreme biodiversity of the South American tropics, and isolated from the rest of the world's temperate zones, it has a unique assemblage of wildlife, first described in any detail by Charles Darwin. Indeed it was his experiences in Patagonia, almost as much as in the Galapagos Islands, that sowed the seeds which inspired his seminal work ‘On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection'.

In the Valdés Peninsula we see burrowing parrots, flowering cacti, walk through a colony of Magellanic penguins, and watch offshore for southern right whales. Other highlights include Perito Moreno Glacier, a boat trip on the Beagle Channel, and Tierra del Fuego National Park, home to 90 species of birds including Andean condor.
