Discover a land of giants

A vast land at the southern end of South America, Patagonia spans national boundaries but has no precise borders of its own. Embark on a South America expedition and discover massive snow-covered Andean peaks, steppes, fjords, glaciers, forests, rivers, lakes, and valleys—inhabited by exceptionally interesting wildlife that is marvelously adapted to living here. Fall under the spell of this mythic land, exploring its national parks, its privately held parklands, and the seldom-seen Isla de los Estados, which has been closed to the world for decades and is overrun with wildness. Lars-Eric Lindblad led the first travelers to the region in 1967, and we’ve been pioneering expedition-style travel here since.

    Expedition Highlights

    Embark on an active, immersive adventure in the iconic wildness of Patagonia aboard National Geographic Endurance, National Geographic Explorer, or National Geographic Orion. This region, isolated by jagged peaks amd vast steppes and carved with fjords and channels, was once only the domain of hearty backpackers. Today, aboard our specially equipped expedition ships, we are able to explore its wildest places with the luxury of comfort. Zodiac cruise, kayak, hike, and walk in the wilderness. See Magellanic penguins, massive elephant seals, which can reach up to 20 feet in length and weigh up to nearly 9,000 pounds, and birdlife of incredible diversity. Discover cerulean glaciers, deep fjords, and cliffs carved into shape by Patagonia’s powerful environment.

    Of all the remarkable landscapes throughout Chilean Patagonia, there are few that match the glacially polished, cloud-studded, crenulated skyline of Torres del Paine.

    You may share my belief that exploring the world is always a privilege. If so, this expedition takes that up a notch—as it provides exclusive access to wildernesses that are in private hands. The term seldom seen has seldom been more appropriate.
