Traverse
Patagonia & The Falklands

Explore the Valdes Peninsula Nature Reserve, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for being one of the world’s prime whale migration hotspots. Amid the Falkland Islands, also known as the Islas Malvinas, you’re sure to find a variety of wildlife like Magellanic penguins, sea lions, elephant seals and dolphins. The spectacular glacial vistas of the Chilean Fjords will inspire a sense of awe and wonder as you take a life-changing journey. Zodiac safaris will bring you closer to extraordinary scenes of flora, fauna and magnificent landscapes.

Get To Know
The Region

Argentina

Puerto Madryn invites animal lovers to marvel and revel in its extraordinary wildlife. With sea lions and whale watching opportunities, this Argentinian city acts as the gateway to the Patagonia region. The Islas Vernaci, a group of seven islands part of the province of Chubut, are a wildlife lover’s dream, filled with Magellanic penguins and various species of seabirds. Trek through magnificent landscapes as you get up close to the islands and their many natural wonders.

Chilean Fjords

Amid the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Alberto de Agostini National Park sits the enchanting blue ice shelf of Garibaldi Glacier. Famous for its mesmerizing color, it’s a life-changing sight that will inspire a sense of awe and wonder. Journeying through Glacier Alley, navigate icy waters with vistas of snow-capped peaks and dark green forests. Pía, Pío XI, Porter and Romanche Glaciers are just a few highlights of Glacier Alley. For 156 years, the Diego Ramírez Islands were believed to be the southernmost global lands at the time. While further exploration has since disproven that, they are still the southernmost extreme of Chile. The Diego Ramírez-Drake Passage Marine Park is now the southernmost park in South America.

West Point

Home to various nesting species of albatross, West Point Island, on the northwest tip of the Falklands, was once known as Albatross Island. A rugged promontory known as “The Devil’s Nose” offers breathtaking views of sandstone cliffs, tussac grass and black-browed albatrosses and rockhopper penguins. Aside from incredible seabirds, West Point is also home to whales, fur seals, dolphins and sea lions. Neighboring Carcass Island beckons with the possibility of a tea-and-cake welcome at a farmhouse amid the stunning scenes. With a terrain that varies from rocky paths to lush stretches of grass and plenty of wildlife to observe, West Point Island is a destination made for the explorer spirit.

Port Stanley

Although small, Port Stanley contains a big personality. Its signature landmark, the famous whale bone arch, speaks volumes about this eccentric and rarely visited destination. The colorful, small town lies on the Falkland Islands, a hot spot and haven for watching Magellanic penguins. The Malvinas call to every adventurer with an abundance of pubs, eateries and historic attractions to explore. Visit the Historic Dockyard Museum, a one-stop site to learn about life in the camp, Antarctic connections and the 1982 war with Argentina.
