Our Patagonia Overland Safari, utilizing specially equipped Jeep Wranglers, offers you the most unique of experiences among the jaw-dropping landscapes of wild Patagonia. These safaris were designed with adventure, safety, luxury, comfort and style in mind. Choose between our guided safaris or venture into the wilds of Patagonia on your own on our self-drive adventures.

This trip offers the very best that both Chilean and Argentinan Patagonia have to offer. Our 9 day Safari includes a unique mix of 5 or 4 Star hotels, depending on whether you select the GOLD or the SILVER package. On both programs you have access to a full menu of excursions to choose from throughout both National Parks.

We begin at the Fjord of Last Hope in Chile, before venturing into far reaches of Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina and the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. Then it’s on to experience the best of Torres Paine National Park in Chile before winding down at the same place where our adventure started.

This Patagonia safari offers the freedom and flexibility for those looking to explore the region at their own pace and away from the crowds. However, having this freedom does not imply sacrificing luxury, comfort and style in the process. The ROAM difference is clear as soon as you board your Jeep and venture into the wilds of Patagonia.

Activies

Walks & hikes

Both Torres del Paine and Los Glaciares offer some of the most spectacular walks and hikes of any region in the world. National Geographic awarded this region one of the top spots in its ranking of the best hiking destinations on the planet.  We offer amazing opportunities to walk and hike among gnarled, mysterious beech forests and open plains to glaciers, roaring waterfalls, glacier-carved valleys and towering granite giants that glow as if on fire with the light of dawn and dusk.  There are naturalist or active hiking routes available.  The more active route is ideal  for those who are in good shape and can stand long hikes (5 – 6 hours) on varied terrain.

Horseback riding

Riding in Patagonia is an activity that can be enjoyed by all, even if you have never gone horseback riding before. We offer this activity on beautiful and tame horses that know the trails and turns like the back of their hoofs. Horseback riding in Patagonia allows you to experience the region a bit differently than on walks & hikes, covering more terrain in a shorter period of time, and doing it as the real gauchos (local cowboys) do it. You will be treated to spectacular views of the valleys and lakes while horseback riding at either Torres del Paine or Los Glaciares National Parks.

Boating

You will have several opportunities to cruise Patagonia’s breath-taking glacier lakes. On the Chilean side you have the option of navigating around Grey Lake to view Glacier Grey from up-close. You will also have the opportunity to navigate the turquoise blue waters of Pehoe lake if you choose to do the French Valley Trek. On the Argentine side, you also have the opportunity to enjoy a catamaran navigation on Argentino lake, to cruise in front of the wall of the mammoth Perito Moreno Glacier. Here we will have the opportunity to witness it calving into the lake and see in detail the electric blue hues of its gigantic walls.

Kayaking

If you are looking for some adventure, then our kayaking excursions are the perfect option for you. We offer kayaking at Lake Grey in Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. This excursion is offered for anyone who wants to see icebergs from up-close as we kayak around an area known as ‘iceberg graveyard’ where dozens of icebergs from Glacier Grey accumulate due to the currents and winds at the lake. Your guide will adjust your paddling route depending on weather conditions, kayaking skills and the abundance of icebergs.

Ice trekking

For those looking for a more active option on the day you visit Perito Moreno Glacier, you have the option of embarking on a catamaran to cross the lake along the southern wall of Perito Moreno glacier and setting off for about a two hour ice trek along the mighty glacier. The ice surface over which you walk is irregular, but firm and very safe. On our trek we will appreciate a variety of ice formations including crevasses, seracs, drains and small lagoons.  Your guide share information about the flora, fauna and general glaciology of the region as well as the particular phenomenon occurring in the glacier Perito Moreno that eventually causes the calving.

Please Note: This activity is limited to participants between the ages of 10 and 65.

Fly fishing

For those in the search of Patagonia’s legendary trout and salmon, we offer a full-day fly fishing excursion at the Serrano River in Torres del Paine National Park. There Serrano River is home to countless rainbows and browns, as well as the mighty Chinook salmon between the months of December and February. We will scout the river and choose our fishing spot based on the weather and water conditions that day. Our fishing expedition will extend throughout the day today and it includes a gourmet lunch at the edge of the river, as well as coffee, tea, beer, wine and the traditional Patagonian “mate” tea. As you fish you will also enjoy all the flora and fauna of the area, including ducks, condors, woodpeckers and possibly even the elusive Puma, which is often spotted around the lands surrounding the river. We return to the hotel in the late afternoon for some relaxation time before dinner.

Jeep touring

Different Jeep® tours are offered in both Torres del Paine and Los Glaciares National Park and this is a great way to see most of the highlights of the Parks in the shortest amount of time.  These tours include the opportunity to enjoy leisurely walks that take in the full spectrum of the park’s flora and fauna, in company with various breathtaking views of the mountains, surrounding lakes and countryside.
