I’m so pleased to introduce Argentina: Walking in Patagonia. On this invigorating new Walking Vacation, we explore this rugged land in the utmost comfort, staying at elegant hotels that exude a rustic Patagonian flair. We’re even privileged to stay at the coveted Los Notros Hotel, the only property with direct views of Perito Moreno Glacier.
But there’s more to this trip than exhilarating walks and superior accommodations. We’ll connect with local culture and also take picnic lunches in these great outdoors, surrounded by towering granite peaks. Indulge in an authentic, Argentine barbecue. Learn the remarkable story behind the estancias that have played host to travelers like us for more than a century. And chat with the locals of El Calafate and El Chalten, two of our home bases, who have plenty of stories to share about their outpost towns.
VBT’s Director of Worldwide Product, Chris Skilling, spared no effort in adding these authentic details that make this a Patagonia vacation unlike any other. “It’s a truly captivating part of the world,” he kept telling me as he pulled it all together. “And it gives VBT travelers another warm locale to explore during winter months since the seasons are reversed south of the equator.”
We’ve worked to provide the highest caliber experience, even in a region as remote as Patagonia. Incredibly, you’ll enjoy our exclusive itinerary for one low price, and it includes all this: international airfare, fuel surcharges, deluxe accommodations, many meals, two expert local Trip Leaders, cultural activities, FREE use of our custom VBT walking poles, and van support.
I hope you’ll join us on our newest Walking Vacation, Argentina: Walking in Patagonia. Fall 2011 departures are now available; you’ll also find our very first offering of 2012 warm-winter departures on our website. But call soon to reserve – space to this last great wilderness is sure to fill quickly.
