Patagonia Expeditions

The ship National Geographic Resolution at Bernal Glacier, located in the Alacalufes National Reserve in Bernardo O'Higgins National Park, Patagonia, Chile.

From soaring mountains with razor-sharp peaks to a panoply of rare wildlife, Patagonia stuns with its trove of natural wonders. Aboard our small and nimble expedition ships, travel to the region’s wild isles and untrammeled coasts, where roads are scarce and nature reigns. Go where few have ventured with special access to places like the wind-bent forests and wetlands of Karukinka Natural Park and Argentina’s Staten Island, home to magellanic penguins and fur seals. Along the way, you’ll be guided by veteran expedition leaders, naturalists, and photography experts, traveling by kayak, Zodiac, or on foot as you discover new perspectives on Patagonia’s epic wilderness. 

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.

“The natural beauty of Torres del Paine inspires a wonder so pure you simply need to experience it for yourself,” says Naturalist Eduardo Shaw.
