What to see? About the region

  • Glacier in Patagonia


    At the southern tip of the Andes mountain range, covering vast swathes of Chile and Argentina, the windswept and remote region of Patagonia has been enticing those in search of adventure for over one hundred years. It is a land of extremes, where vertical spires of granite rise up out of the landscape and glaciers cascade down the hillsides spilling enormous blocks of ice into turquoise lagoons. The national parks of Los Glaciares and Torres del Paine are home to some of the most strikingly beautiful mountain scenery anywhere in the world. Have you have always wanted to travel to the end of the earth and see what was there? Let Kandoo Adventures show you.

  • Playa de mayo in Buenos Aires, Argentina

    Buenos Aires

    Capital city
    Buenos Aires is not told, it is lived. The most visited capital of South America, nicknamed "the city that never sleeps", it will delight travellers. Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan city with neighbourhoods that have a strong identity. But it is the inhabitants who give this city a crazy charm, the inordinate passion for football and asado (barbecue), the omnipresence of references to tango, the easy going nature of the Argentines, too accustomed to the economic upheavals of the country not to appreciate the small pleasures of life.
  • Trek in El Chalten, with the Fitz Roy mountains in the background

    Fitz Roy

    Mount Fitz Roy towers above the icy waters of Laguna de los Tres. Nestled in the Southern Patagonian Ice Field near El Chalten, it marks the border between Argentina and Chile. Standing at 3,405 meters tall, this unique rock formation is an iconic landmark of Patagonia's Los Glaciares National Park.
