From the coastal fjords in Chile and the Valdez Peninsula on Argentina’s Atlantic coast, to the glacial lakes in the north and gale-swept shores of southern-most Tierra del Fuego. Marvel at the monumental grandeur of Mount Fitzroy and Torres del Paine; watch for llama-like Guanacos wandering among the peaks, and scan the skies for Andean Condors, which soar on wings spanning 12 feet!
