ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
With pink granite towers, colossal glaciers, emerald-colored fjords and a bleak and beautiful steppe, it is no wonder Chile’s and Argentina’s Patagonia has been inspiring travelers and explorers for centuries. Make your own voyage to the southern tip of South America, as you connect with the beauty of Patagonia via an expedition vessel from Tierra del Fuego National Park to Cape Horn and in an eco-camp in the heart of Patagonia’s rugged wilderness. By sea and on foot, learn about the landscape, abundant wildlife and hearty residents who call the “End of the Earth” their home.


Highlights

• By expedition vessel, sail the icy waters around the tip of the continent, past breathtaking glaciers to Cape Horn National Park and islands teeming with wildlife.
• Stay in an eco-camp in the spectacularly beautiful Torres del Paine National Park, whose craggy peaks symbolize Patagonia’s rugged wilderness.
• Discover the food, wine and vibrant culture of Buenos Aires and Santiago.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes
