Travel to Patagonia has never been more popular and this growing interest has encouraged the development of unique, world-class lodgings in the area. In particular, the impressive properties of Argentine Patagonia aim to match the grandeur of the stunningly picturesque wilderness that surrounds them, creating a unique vacation experience for those who travel to Argentina.
Patagonia has always inspired awe in visitors from around the globe, from English naturalist Charles Darwin to the legendary outlaws, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The region, with the timeless draws of stunning granite towers, turquoise blue waters, and expansive glaciers, now has the added allure of first-rate accommodations. Justin Laycob, president of Southern Explorations, a South American ecotour operator that organizes trips to Patagonia and other Argentina tour adventures, said, "Travelers to the Patagonia region have historically been backpackers, simply due to the lack of lodges in the area. Now adventurous travelers no longer have to sacrifice comfort and luxury in order to experience the area's renowned natural sites first-hand."
Especially when coupled with a stay in the stylish capital city of Buenos Aires, Patagonia tours now cater to some of the most sophisticated travelers without compromising the region's pristine surroundings. The striking accommodations offered when you travel to Argentina range from charmingly rustic estancias to plush lodges--all in picturesque settings near the heart of the country's premier sites, such as Glacier National Park, home to Mt. Fitz Roy and the Perito Moreno Glacier. Laycob added, "We are able to base our trips designed for passionate hikers, kayakers, and outdoor enthusiasts out of world-class accommodations. Very few other wilderness travel destinations can offer a similar level of premier lodging."
To ensure the best of these scenic accommodations included on many of these tours, the time to book Patagonia tours for the upcoming Argentine summer is now. Southern Explorations specializes in small group departures and customized tours to Patagonia and other Central and South American destinations, with trips personalized to specific traveler interests, from those looking for cozy estancia stays to luxurious lodges--all with breathtaking views.
