Patagonia Photography Tour
The amazing beauty of a Patagonia photography tour condensed in 8 days of pure wilderness and unparalleled beauty.
This is a wonderful experience to discover some of Patagonia's highlights, such as the Perito Moreno glacier, Torres del Paine's mountain peaks and the penguin colony of Isla Magdalena. Our Patagonia photography tour starts at the city of El Calafate at the Santa Cruz province. We will journey into the glacier both by land and water (blue, green, brown colors). The Patagonia photography tour will continue south and across the border to Chile, where we will spend a few nights at the Torres del Paine national park photographing its peaks and its wildlife.
