Rugged, snow-capped mountains stand amid the wild south of Argentina and Chile, fringed by huge icy lakes and windswept grasslands. In the distance, shy guanacos roam and a few hardy gauchos tend their many sheep. We discover the sheer-sided peak of Mount Fitzroy and the immense Perito Moreno Glacier, from which ice chunks often tumble into the water. Our journey culminates in Ushuaia – the southernmost city in the world. Renowned for expansive landscapes and outdoor activities, Patagonia never fails to astound.

Day 1: Start Buenos Aires; walking tour

Our local leader will meet us today for a welcome briefing and to take us on an introductory walking tour of the city. The evening is free for you to visit one of the many excellent restaurants in the capital, many serving the much-revered Argentine steaks. Accommodation: Deco Recoleta Hotel (or similar)

Day 2: Fly to El Calafate; dive to El Chaltén

This morning we fly from Buenos Aires to El Calafate and transfer (approximately three to four hours) to the small mountain town of El Chaltén. The town has a beautiful location in Los Glaciares National Park with breath-taking views of Mount Fitzroy and the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. Accommodation: Hosteria Don Atilio (or similar)

Day 3: Los Glaciares National Park; walk to Cerro Fitzroy Base Camp

We set off for a day of walking amid incredible mountains and valleys. First, we hike to Cerro Fitzroy Base Camp with views of the massif ahead. In the afternoon, we continue to Laguna de los Tres, a glacial lake whose still waters reflect the three main peaks of the range. This is a full day of walking over fairly rough terrain, but with impressive, rugged scenery along the way. Trekking: 11mi (18km), eight to nine hours Accommodation: Hosteria Don Atilio (or similar)

Day 4: Optional activities; to El Calafate

Today has been left free to enjoy an additional trek or an optional excursion in the area. In the late afternoon, we transfer (approximately three to four hours) back to El Calafate. Trekking option: 9mi (14km), six hours Accommodation: Hosteria Tierra Tehulche (or similar)

Day 5: Visit Perito Moreno Glacier; optional boat trip

Today we visit the Perito Moreno Glacier. This jagged ice sheet stretches more than 3mi (5km) across Lago Argentino and rises 200ft (61m) out of the cold waters. It is the fastest-moving glacier on the planet and the eerie creaks and thunderous groans add an atmosphere of anticipation. Every so often, an office block-sized chunk of ice calves from its face into the water below before slowly floating down the lake as an iceberg. An optional boat trip gives an even greater appreciation of the immense scale of this wonder. Accommodation: Hosteria Tierra Tehulche (or similar)

Day 6: Free day in El Calafate

We spend a second day here to explore. We can take a gentle walk along Lago Argentina to see birdlife (including flamingos), or a slightly more demanding hike for fantastic views over the Patagonian Steppe and towards the mountainous border with Chile. Alternatively, join an optional excursion to a local estancia (ranch) or to Todo Glaciares – this navigation includes Upsala Glacier, Bahia Onelli (where glacier pieces float in the water) and the Spegazzinni Glacier. Please ask your tour leader and they will help you to arrange it. Accommodation: Hosteria Tierra Tehulche (or similar)

Day 7: To Torres del Paine National Park

After breakfast, we have a long drive (approximately eight to nine hours) across the border into Chile before we arrive in one of the most beautiful national parks in the world, Torres del Paine (due to local regulations we must change buses at the border). From here, we meet our Chilean guide and drive around some of the park. We may have time after check-in for a short walk next to Laguna Amarga or Laguna Azul, which offer great panoramic views of the Paine Massif and the striking granite Horns of Paine. Accommodation: Hosteria Pehoe (or similar)

Day walk to the Torres del Paine

Without a doubt, one of the park highlights is the hike up to the base of the Torres del Paine. The walk itself is beautiful, trekking through forests and offering fantastic park views. This is a reasonably difficult and long trek, and the last section is steep with rocky terrain, so you need a reasonably good level of fitness and confidence. The reward on reaching the small lake at the base of these sheer granite peaks makes the long walk worthwhile. Note that adverse weather conditions can make this walk much harder; your group leader will give a briefing the night before and answer any questions you may have. Once we finish the trek, we take a transfer (approximately two hours) to Puerto Natales. Trekking 9mi (14km), eight to nine hours Accommodation: Hotel Lady Florence Dixie or Hotel Baquedano

Day 9: To Tierra del Fuego

After breakfast, we have free time before a fairly long transfer in the afternoon, through dramatic scenery to Cerro Sombrero. This journey involves a short ferry crossing over the Magellan Straits. We advise you take plenty of water and snacks for the journey (approximately seven to eight hours). In the evening, we'll have dinner together at the hotel in the small town of Cerro Sombrero. Accommodation: Hosteria Tunkelen (or similar)

Day 10: To Ushuaia, the end of the world

Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire) is named after the original inhabitants who lit bonfires to ward off the winter chill. Crossing the island, we'll have views of the most southerly part of the Andes before catching our first glimpses of Ushuaia – the end of the world! This is a long driving day (approximately seven to eight hours) but we use a private bus to make the journey more comfortable. We should arrive at our hotel mid-afternoon depending on weather conditions and traffic. Accommodation: Hotel Ushuaia (or similar)

Day 11: Walk in Tierra del Fuego National Park; optional visit to penguin colony

We'll spend this morning in the stark wilderness of Tierra del Fuego National Park, walking among varied terrain, flora and fauna. In the afternoon, there is an optional boat ride along the Beagle Channel to see marine wildlife including penguins, sea lions and many species of water bird including a flightless duck. We also enjoy fantastic views of Ushuaia and its backdrop of often snow-capped peaks as we head out on the boat. Please ask your tour leader and they will help you to arrange it. For those wanting more adventure or not wishing to trek, an optional half-day 4WD excursion is on offer, which takes us deep into the wilds of Tierra del Fuego, where conventional transport would fail to reach, including the remote lakes of Fagnano and Escondido (please note, it is not possible to see penguins on this tour). Walking 2mi (4km), two hours Accommodation: Hotel Ushuaia (or similar)

Day 12: Fly to Buenos Aires

Depending upon the flight schedule, we may have free time this morning in Ushuaia. There are magnificent views from the hills leading up to the Martial Glacier and some small shops to pick up souvenirs. Ushuaia has just one museum, housed in the former prison, which is worth a visit. We fly back to Buenos Aires and usually arrive in time to visit one of the excellent tango shows in the old quarter of San Telmo (optional) and enjoy a last group meal together. Accommodation: Deco Recoleta Hotel (or similar)

Day 13: End Buenos Aires

Depending on the time of your flight home, you may have another chance to see more of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires. After last night's tango show, you might be tempted to learn a few steps or watch it in the streets and plazas. A visit to the grave of Evita in the remarkable Recoleta Cemetery, said to be the most expensive real estate in the world, is possible.
