Far South Expeditions, Inspiring Wildlife Adventures since 1997Far South Expeditions

Inspiring Wildlife Adventures since 1997


This upcoming season our company will enter its 18th year of Inspiring and intimate nature, photography, birding and cultural journeys in South America, Patagonia and Antarctica.

Based in Chile, we specialize since 1997 in offering world-class naturalist expeditions, planning and leading an assortment of programmes focused on natural history & geography, wildlife & landscape photography, birdwatching, culture & history, trekking & hiking and family adventures in Chile, Peru, Argentina, Patagonia & Antarctica.

For 2015 we have prepared a diverse calendar of journeys combining the best our region offers to travellers whose interest lies mainly in the natural world and culture as a part of it. Our itineraries offer the best locations, dates, lodging and the leadership of the most experienced and knowledgeable local guides. Our trips visit such contrasting and beautiful locations, from the Atacama Desert, and the Altiplano in the Northern Andes, to the enigmatic Easter Island in the middle of the Pacific, and south to the impressive fjörds, mountains and glaciers of Patagonia, Torres del Paine and Tierra del Fuego, and the forbidding beauty of Antarctica.
