North & South Patagonia - Expedition Add-on

Both culture and passion run hot in Patagonia, and there’s no way to experience it quite like jumping right in and living it for yourself. Conveniently ending in Ushuaia, this tour provides the perfect leap-off point to our Antarctica expedition cruising program – but there’s plenty to get up to in Buenos Aires and beyond. Go from cosmopolitan centres to Torres del Paine National Park and the Perito Moreno glacier. Scenic ferry rides and standing at the end of the Earth cap off an unbelievable experience that you’ll remember forever.

Trip Advice

Please note: You should be especially careful when wandering about the capital city on your own, particularly at night. Tourists are easy prey for individual pickpockets or groups of two or more people, working as a team, on the streets. Pay particular attention to anyone who “accidentally” spills anything on your clothes or belongings (mustard, etc.), then apologizes and offers to help clean up. They will clean you out instead! Be safe and leave your passport, credit cards, traveller’s cheques and cash you won’t be using immediately within the hotel’s safety deposit box. Most Porteños are honest and genuinely helpful and friendly, but be safe and enjoy the city!

What to Take

Most people automatically assume that the weather is hot in South America, but in Patagonia the temperature can feel quite cold, especially at night. We recommend the use of a duffel bag, soft rolling bag or backpack, whichever you find easiest to carry. A good size daypack is also essential.

About Accommodation

Local Dress

Weather can change dramatically in Patagonia - we recommend layering to be prepared for any unexpected weather changes.

Meals

Eating is a big part of traveling. Travelling with G Adventures you experience the vast array of wonderful food that is available out in the world. Generally meals are not included in the trip price when there is a choice of eating options, to give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where, what and with whom to eat. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility, though generally food is cheap. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this though. Your CEO will be able to suggest favourite restaurants during your trip. Note: Food is generally considered to be more expensive in Argentina and Chile than in most other South American Countries. Moreover, as this is a comfort tour many passengers may want to visit more exclusive restaurants.

Group Leader Description

All G Adventures group trips are accompanied by one of our Chief Experience Officers (CEO). The aim of the CEO is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. They will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the countries visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects. We also use local guides where we think more specific knowledge will add to the enjoyment of the places we are visiting- we think it's the best of both worlds.
