This is an outline of a journey taken by Civilized Adventures clients who travelled to Chile & Argentina in February, 2014 at the height of the southern summer months. Highlights included two regions of Chilean Patagonia, Chile's Atacama Desert, and Mendoza in Argentina's wine district. This is a sample of an exclusive journey with private touring, top hotels and luxury lodges. A variety of activities were included as offered by the lodges of Patagonia and the Atacama regions. This sample trip offers adventure, mountains lakes and desert, culture and wildlife.

  • "If people like hiking, wine and great food, Chile is the place to go. Horseback riding is great; we went 4 times for 2 hours each. We canoed along a river in the lake district, hiked along the coast and went to a fishing village. A hike, lamb barbeque and horseback ride is not to be missed in Patagonia. The Casablanca Valley was also a highlight".
  • "It was a very memorable trip and we thank CA".
