These two National Parks real pack some punch and people love to combine them to see the ultimate highlights of Patagonia. We designed this tour for people who love day hiking and staying at hotels at night. We've included time in Santiago and Buenos Aires but we can remove those if you aren't keen on cities and would prefer to focus your time in Patagonia.
