Fully Hosted Patagonian Overland Odyssey Eco Tours | Puerto Varas, Chile
If you're looking to experience the real Patagonia, let us host you around volcanoes in the Lakes District, into the fjords of southern Chile, through the temperate rain forest, down the wind-blown Steppes, and alongside glaciers and granite massifs.
Starting at: USD $4990 per trip
An overland is a type of "roadtrip", where the key attraction is not only each destination, but also the adventure along the way. We head through the remote, pristine parts of Patagonia that most people simply fly over. This 16-day Odyssey through southern Chile and Argentina is your best way to experience this extreme corner of the planet up close and personal, to get Patagonia under your skin.
Typical Day
After breakfast provided by our hotel or lodge, we will head out in our extremely comfortable Sprinter van for our new daily adventure. Most of the morning will be spent driving through a unique landscape, learning about the history and culture of each area, and making plenty of stops for taking photos and stretching our legs. We will have lunch either on the road or at a local restaurant before arriving at our destination for the day. Here, we will either have a scheduled activity or you will have free time to explore on your own before we meet for dinner, to share stories, and to discuss the plan for the following day.

Age range, type of group
This tour is for lovers of nature, history, culture, photography, flora and fauna. It is for those who enjoy sharing this untamed land with like-minded people, who pack along their sense of wonder and their sense of humor. It requires that you be flexible and flow with the tour, so you can create your own Patagonian experience. As one recent client put it, this trip is for people with an "Interest in nature, with all its glories and inconveniences. Interest in a different culture, history, and places. A sense of adventure and excitement over the unexpected. Willingness to leave the internet and the modern world for 16 days." It is not an active trip, but we will have plenty of opportunities for hiking, walking, horseback riding and boat rides, among others.This tour is open to all ages, but in general our overland travelers have averaged between 45-75 years old.

Sleeping and meals
First of all, there is no camping. The hotels we use on our hosted overland tours vary between 3 and 5-star.
