(approximate dates)
Leader: Martin Sheader

This tour will be led by Martin Sheader, who has visited Patagonia many times and is the author of the AGS book, Flowers of the Patagonian Mountains.

Oxalis enneaphylla The tour covers the far south of the Patagonian mainland, concentrating on the mountains and steppe of Argentina’s Santa Cruz province, with a short detour to visit Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park. We will stay in comfortable hotels and hosterias. The trip caters for those with an average level of fitness with only a couple of moderate uphill climbs. We will visit in the austral spring, when the weather is usually dry and often windy. Temperatures vary, but are similar to the UK in spring, with occasional night frosts and with daytime temperatures cool to warm.

After a short visit to Torres del Paine National Park (Chile), the rest of the tour will be in Argentina, starting in Los Glaciares National Park and moving north to finish at Monte Zeballos. We should experience spectacular scenery and see abundant wildlife such as condors, guanacos, rheas, foxes and many species of flowering plants on both the steppe and in the mountains.

As with our last tour to Patagonia, demand is likely to be high so we would advise placing your name on the waiting list as soon as possible.
