3/4 star B&B & Hotels (11 nts), camping (3 nts)
We have carefully chosen these gay-welcoming properties with you in mind. They have the right balance of comfort while still being locally owned.
Sleeping - This trip includes three nights of camping. Our campsite acts as our base while we hike in Torres del Paine National Park. We are required to set up and dismantle our tents from the campsite, but have guides to assist if necessary.
Food - All meals are provided during the camping portion of this trip. Dinners are simple (pastas, rice, chicken) and are served in a common dinning area. Lunches consist of sandwiches, fruit and sometimes a chocolate bar. There is also a small variety of snacks available at the campsite's general store.
Luggage - All luggage, except for a day pack, is left at the campsite during the day. One guide is dedicated to staying behind to look after the site while we hike.
Be prepared for some serious physical activity. This trip features treks of up to 8 hours with breaks. The more fit you are, the more you will enjoy your holiday.
Expect to rough it every now and again, whether it's a very simple B&B or shared bathroom facilities while camping.
Maximum of 16 travellers per group. Departure is guaranteed, subject to 6 people travelling.
Allow USD $750 for meals not included.
Feast on mountains of meat at one of the city's famous asado restaurants or take a walk around the Recoleta cemetery, stopping by Evita's flower-adorned grave.
Fly south to the shores of Lago Argentino and El Calafate, gateway to Glacier National Park.
Admire Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the world's few advancing glaciers. Watch as huge shards of ice creak and collapse into the freezing water below.
Hike to Laguna Torre to see the summit of Cerro Torres rising majestically out of a mist-clad valley.
Trek through the dramatic granite pillars, sparkling lakes, gushing waterfalls and herds of wild guanacos in dramatic Chilean Patagonia. Experience the beautiful Torres del Paine, then relax at our campsite and enjoy fantastic meals cooked by our crew.
Visit the world's southernmost city and cruise along the Beagle Channel to watch the marine wildlife playing along the shoreline of the many small islands and inlets.
Back in the capital, relax over a glass of vino, wander the city's elegant boulevards or visit the Casa Rosada, the pink presidential palace where Evita once appeared on the balcony in front of adoring fans.

Most of our trips require a compulsory local payment, which is part of the contract with you (the customer) and OUT Adventures. This amount is the final payment for your trip and is to be paid in the specified currency, in cash to your leader upon arrival. The local payment is non-refundable, and is considered part of the total trip payment.
It is expensive to transfer funds to many countries - so by making a Local Payment you help us keep your costs low.
The Local Payment is used for paying for local services such as hotels and transport.
No, as the money is used to pay for local services these cannot be paid elsewhere.
