WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

I had no idea what to expect from the Patagonian Explorer journey, and the tour was spectacular - the views of the glaciers on the Beagle Channel and the vistas at Torres del Paine were spectacular and breathtaking. Iguazu Falls and its scale defy description. Needs to be added to anyone's Bucket List!

- Mary-Anne B.

Patagonia was life-changing; unlike any other place on earth. 

- Jane V.

The Patagonian Explorer was all that we had envisioned and more! Amazing natural beauty, extremely well educated, enlightening lectures. We will travel with Smithsonian Journeys again.
