BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE!

Learn about our flexible booking policies and our on-trip health and safety protocols.
The southernmost Andes rise in spires to the sky, their sheer granite heights drawing the eye and spirit upward. Sunrise bathes the peaks in rosy alpenglow. Glaciers wind down in frozen rivers from the ice-crowned massifs, choking turquoise lakes with floating blue bergs. Patagonia has no peer on Earth when it comes to dramatic mountain landscapes. On our cross-border expedition into Chile and Argentina, look for condors, guanacos and elusive pumas on guided hikes. Puma sightings are on the increase, and we hope to get a glimpse of this stealthy hunter in Torres del Paine National Park. Patagonia’s seascapes are likewise enchanting, a maze of fjords and islands that are a playground for whales, dolphins, penguins and elephant seals. Explore and photograph diverse facets of this legendary adventure realm on an all-encompassing odyssey to the bottom of South America.

Experience More of Patagonia, More Personally, with Nat Hab!

Though Patagonia is one of the world's most remote travel destinations, its matchless grandeur ensures there are plenty of guided group trips to choose from. But you’ll be hard-pressed to find one as impressive as ours. It’s more comprehensive. While many operators focus on either Chile or Argentina, we show you the best of both sides of the southernmost Andes—and in a manner that’s adventurous yet very comfortable. No endurance treks or freezing tents...though we do immerse you in some of the most striking wilderness on the planet.

  1. A More Personalized Nature Experience
    We know a small group is essential for the best nature adventures. That’s why we limit our group to approximately 12 travelers—and just 10 on our special photo departures. You'll enjoy quieter encounters with the natural world, and you’re always assured plenty of personal attention from our Expedition Leader and photo pro.
  2. Varied Angles to View and Photograph Patagonia's Famous Glaciers
    The Southern Patagonian ice fields are some of the largest on Earth, and we don’t shortchange you on glacier sightseeing. You'll visit Los Glaciares National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where we do some light hiking near Perito Moreno, one of the most spectacular glaciers in Patagonia. Unlike most glaciers, it is still advancing, and watching icebergs calve from its 200-foot-high face is a matchless thrill. We also view it from the water on a private boat trip on Lago Argentino. 
  3. Search for Wild Pumas—Sightings are Increasing!
    While pumas—also known as cougars or mountain lions in North America—are elusive and rarely seen, sightings are on the rise, and we put a special focus on looking for them. In fact, we've added a third day in Torres del Paine National Park for this very purpose. This is likely not the case on other Patagonia trips, which aren't as wildlife-oriented as ours is. 
  4. Unique Lodgings Include Famed EcoCamp Patagonia
    Nat Hab accommodations are often as memorable as the destinations we explore. Among the special places we stay is world-famous EcoCamp Patagonia, in view of Chile’s famed Torres del Paine. Domed suites are modeled on traditional Kawesqar native huts; warm and wind-resistant, these nomad-style dwellings provide an immersion in the natural environs while offering supreme comfort. 
  5. Your Expedition Leader is One of Patagonia’s Top Naturalist Guides
    Our Patagonia Expedition Leader is one of the most acclaimed guides in the region, with years of in-depth experience in the southern Andes. All our NHA Expedition Leaders benefit from Nat Hab’s high-level training and further resources provided by WWF scientists, so your trip is sure to be an adventure for the mind as well as the body and spirit. And on our special photo departures, you'll travel with pro photographer who has years of expertise gained through exploring the wild reaches of the southern Andes. Read our Expedition Leader bios and traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.
  6. Our Quality-Value Guarantee Ensures Your Superlative Patagonia Adventure
    Natural Habitat Adventures offers an exclusive guarantee that clearly states that we will meet the high expectations we set forth in our promotional materials. To our knowledge, this is the most ambitious guarantee made by any adventure travel company. Read our important promise for yourself!
