Perth-based travel company Walk into Luxury has expanded its program beyond Australia and New Zealand into Patagonia, South America.
The new range of premium Patagonia journeys including signature walks and nature-based journeys. Partnering with Patagonia’s best lodges, estancias and eco-camps, as well as expedition cruise ships, Walk into Luxury’s collection offers unique access to the remote landscape of Southern Patagonia and the region’s icefields.
Expedition cruising in Patagonia and the Antarctic Peninsula, and extension options to Atacama Desert, Iguazu Falls, Chile’s Lakes District and Mendoza’s Uco Valley, are also available.

“We want to make it easy for active travellers to plan that dream South America trip that combines the most iconic national parks and landscapes with exceptional local food and wine experiences and unique accommodation,” said Nikki King, Founder of Walk into Luxury
Among the new collection are two W-Trek hike options in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park. One is a small group trek paired with glamping in the National Park; the other, a ‘best of’ experience with day hikes on the W-Trek and guests returning to a luxury lodge each evening. Must-see Perito Moreno Glacier near El Calafate features in a new Best of Patagonia signature journey, and an extension to El Chalten – Argentina’s national trekking capital – offers a chance to hike at Mount Fitz Roy and complete bucket-list day walks, Laguna de los Tres and Laguna Torre in Los Glaciares National Park.
“Each journey is designed to get people into nature to discover the unique landscapes of Patagonia. We have various options, ranging from challenging hiking trips (even the chance to climb a volcano) to luxury journeys featuring day walks and scenic glacier cruises. Horse riding in the pampas, and unique food and wine experiences like an Asado lunch in an Argentinian vineyard with the Andes as a backdrop, offer a gentler pace and way of getting guests into nature,” adds King.
Local food and wine, exceptional accommodation in natural settings, and access to world-class walks is at the heart of every Walk into Luxury journey.
“We are grateful to partner with Patagonia’s best lodges, who lead the way in sustainable travel, protecting the pristine landscapes they sit within. It’s a privilege to introduce our clients to this world-class wilderness area, supported by expert guides and exceptional local hospitality,” concluded King.
All itineraries can be personalised to the client’s needs and are available as private or small group departures.
