Pantanal

As the world's largest wetland, this remarkable ecosystem is teeming with a diverse array of animal and bird species.

Welcome to the mesmerising world of the Pantanal, where nature reigns supreme and the human presence is minimal.

A remarkable variety of ecosystems, the Pantanal provides the perfect haven for a thriving wildlife population. With over 650 species of birds, hundreds of mammals, reptiles, and fish, exploring the Pantanal offers an unrivalled refuge of sheer beauty.

Caimans diligently patrol the waters, monkeys fill the trees with their lively chatter, and a multitude of bird species flit from treetop to treetop. The sky becomes a canvas of fiery reds and oranges at sunset, reflecting their vivid hues upon the water.

Due to the absence of roads and marshy swamplands, exploring the region is best done on horseback, allowing you to venture deep into the remote areas of the Pantanal. Glide along the rivers in dugout canoes or traverse the vast savannah in 4WD vehicles for a comprehensive safari style exploration of this remarkable landscape.

The Pantanal, far removed from civilisation, can be reached by flying into either Cuiaba or Campo Grande. Accommodations in the region are rustic and remote, scattered throughout the area. Whether you're interested in photo safaris, fishing trips, or jaguar tracking, the Pantanal offers unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities.

Patagonia

Experience the untamed wilderness of Patagonia, where electric blue glaciers, ancient forests, icebergs, and towering peaks await. A haven for nature enthusiasts seeking thrilling adventures and captivating natural wonders.

Welcome to the wild wonders of Patagonia, a destination that promises an unforgettable holiday experience.

Patagonia is a vast and diverse landscape, stretching across the southernmost parts of Argentina and Chile. Its scenery encompasses towering snow-capped mountains, pristine glacial lakes, expansive grasslands, and dramatic coastlines. This untouched wilderness offers a playground for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers alike.

When planning your holiday to Patagonia, the first decision to make is which side of the region to explore. The Argentinean side boasts iconic destinations such as El Calafate, El Chaltén, and Bariloche, while the Chilean side showcases the wonders of Torres del Paine National Park and Punta Arenas. Both sides offer unique experiences and jaw-dropping landscapes, so choosing the right itinerary is crucial.

One of the highlights of Argentinean Patagonia is the awe-inspiring Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glaciares National Park. Witnessing this massive glacier up close is a mesmerising experience as ice chunks break off and crash into the turquoise waters below. Another must-visit destination is El Chaltén, known as the trekking capital of Argentina, where you can embark on unforgettable hikes to Mount Fitzroy and Cerro Torre, surrounded by jaw-dropping mountain vistas.

For those seeking adventure, the Argentinean side of Patagonia offers ample opportunities for activities such as horseback riding, mountain biking, fly fishing, and kayaking in pristine lakes and rivers.

Bariloche, nestled amidst the stunning Andean mountains, is a paradise for nature lovers. Explore the picturesque Nahuel Huapi National Park, go hiking in the surrounding mountains, or indulge in winter sports during the snowy season. Bariloche also serves as a gateway to the famous Lake District, where charming alpine-style villages and shimmering lakes await your discovery.

With its untouched natural beauty, awe-inspiring landscapes, and thrilling outdoor activities, Patagonia is a dream destination for travellers seeking a unique and unforgettable holiday.
