Hiking in Tierra del Fuego

Argentina is the World's 8th largest country; almost as large as India but with a smaller population than England. Spanning almost half the length of South America, Argentina encompasses an incredible range of natural environments and experiences - from the thundering waterfalls and steamy sub-tropical forests of Misiones Province; to the jagged mountains and vast glaciers of Patagonia. Condors soar above the highest mountain peaks in the Western Hemisphere, within sight of elegant colonial cities and acclaimed wine lands of Mendoza. We can also discover seemingly endless flat expanses of the pampas, home to the legendary figure of the 'gaucho' (the Argentine cowboy) and the strange ostrich-like rhea.

Argentina's coastal region attracts relatively little attention but stretches for 4665 km along the Atlantic seaboard. Colourful and stylish barrios of the La Boca district in Buenos Aires contrast with noisy colonies of sealions and Magellanic penguins hauled out on rocks around the Tierra del Fuego. Overlooking the Beagle Channel, Ushuaia is the World's southernmost city and the normal start point for our expeditions to Antarctica and South Georgia.

Patagonia also offers some of the World's best whale watching opportunities at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Peninsula Valdes. This is a breeding ground for large numbers of Southern Right Whales and a hunting ground for Orca, drawn to the peninsula by young elephant seals and southern sealions. Watching orcas hunt close to the shore must truly be one of Nature's most brutal yet awe-inspiring spectacles, the image of which has made an indelible mark on many of us who have watched this on the BBC series Blue Planet and Ocean Giants.
