In partnership with Onesixth expeditions, we offer this Amazing Experience in Patagonia designed to immerse you in a world apart and to provoke emotions and thoughts probably only reserved to those who took the first steps to explore and guard these lands, culture, and its natural wonders.
From the Atlantic Ocean to the Highest Andes, you will discover corners of Patagonia that only our adventurers can access.
This expedition introduces us into a story, as observers of the passing through of explorers and naturalists, and as witnesses of the legacy the first settlers left behind. It allows us to connect with their descendants, who share their history and the stories about how their families ended up settling in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. These people will open up their homes to us to share their daily life and work, and show us the most mesmerizing scenery and wonders of nature.
It is about following the steps of the pioneers who first visited these lands; footprints of hunter-gatherer people, Magellan's route, the explorations of Charles Darwin and Commander Fitz Roy, and the more adventurous ones such as George Musters, Florence Dixie and Andreas Madsen, the arrival of Bridges and European families in search of southern lands.
We will follow the footsteps of Francisco Pascasio Moreno, with a private visit to Natural Science Museum of La Plata, visit La Boca, San Telmo, Plaza de Mayo and historical places like the old Casa del Perito Moreno and the Geographical Society. Enjoy a show of Tango, and maybe try a few steps!
Sail to Penguin Island to meet fascinating fauna like the Magellanic and Rockhopper Penguins, Dolphins, Toninas and Sea Lions. Then, submerge in a rocky crevice where the sea enters inland through the estuary of Deseado River.
Learn about the wool process and sheep production and enjoy a delicious Patagonian Asado at a typical Cattle Ranch. And, at Las Animas Canyon go through magical caves, mallines, springs, and fauna in the immense Patagonian Steppe.
Reach the Andes Mountains and El Chaltén, surrounded by turquoise lakes, trek to the foot of Fitz Roy Mountain, and enjoy a horseback ride to discover new places. Visit Estancia El Rincón - where Fitz Roy and Darwin arrived in the 18th century, and reach the banks of the Santa Cruz River for an amazing Kayak journey, navigating the same river that our first explorers did.
To end this expedition, we will navigate through Lake Argentino in a private boat to the Perito Moreno Glacier, disembarking at Playa de las Monedas, an exclusive beach, to enjoy nature, the sound of the wind and the colors and grandeur of the glacier. Maybe even, walk on it!
Wildlife from Puerto Pirámides to Camarones
A 2,000 km road connects hundreds of farms, towns and cities: the Blue Route, a scenic road that takes you to the largest Natural Museum on Earth.

Both, proof of only a very small portion of this region's underworld that mankind has still to discover.
