2 weeks Patagonia Itinerary - Day 1 -4 Buenos Aires - Ushuaia
Buenos Aires in Argentina is where you’ll likely land when flying in, so spend the first few days of your trip exploring Buenos Aires.
After exploring Buenos Aires, you will fly to Ushuaia, the world's southernmost city. The city at the end of the world has much to offer, from the stunning landscapes of Tierra del Fuego National Park to once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Rivers, lakes, glaciers, and Virgin forests all await you. Quiet hikes, horseback riding, kayaking, and a 4x4 off-road are some experiences you can enjoy in this natural paradise.
As part of your experience, Indulge the foodie in you with a traditional Cordero al asador and a Patagonian red wine.
Last year I traveled to Ushuaia for my 3rd. I have to admit that it was only on this 3rd visit that I could appreciate the magic of this stunning place.
Check out this Instagram post about my trip to Ushuaia and you will understand why Tierra del Fuego is THE place you have to visit in Patagonia.
2 weeks Patagonia Itinerary - Day 5- 8 Australis Expedition Cruise Experience
After exploring Ushuaia, we will embark on the Australis Expedition Cruise for a 4-night trip. From Ushuaia in Argentina to Punta Arenas in Chile. Prepare yourself for seeing some of the planet’s pristine landscapes and incredible scenery while we cross the Beagle Channel. Spots like Cape Horn and Wulaia Bay. Stunning glaciers, frozen icebergs, and of course the legendary Strait of Magallanes.
I wrote more in-depth on this Instagram post about the Australis Expedition Cruise experience, so if you have any questions about this experience please feel free to message us on Instagram!
Our last spot before docking at Punta Arenas is Isla Magdalena, to visit Chile’s most important Magellanic Penguin Colony.
2 weeks Patagonia Itinerary - Day 9 -11 - Torres del Paine National Park
The next destination on this 2 weeks Patagonia itinerary is Torres del Paine National Park. We will go by land from Punta Arenas to the park. I love Torres del Paine. Torres del Paine National Park is absolutely beautiful. A place of blue lakes, rivers, waterfalls, glaciers, forests, and incredible wildlife. A must-see destination for wildlife observers and nature lovers.
We will stay at Patagonia Camp. It's the must-do in your Visit to Torres del Paine. Located on the edge of Torres del Paine National Park. Here we will enjoy a Luxury Glamping Experience. The perfect combination to explore the outdoors of the park and Stargaze at night from your extraordinary luxury yurt.

2 weeks Patagonia Itinerary - Day 12 -15 El Calafate Argentina
Our next and last destination in this 2 weeks Patagonia itinerary is El Calafate in the Argentinean Patagonia.
We will journey by land along with the most spectacular landscapes of the Patagonia Steep for about 4 hours before arriving at Eolo lodge. Located halfway between the city of El Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park, is the perfect place to explore the Perito Moreno Glacier, which is the greatest attraction in the area, and enjoy activities at the estancia and relax before going back home.
