blue lagoon 21 May 2015 Winter vacationers are increasingly looking to book a faraway active break at the 'edge of the earth' in Patagonia - according to The Wayfarers Walking Vacations. The Wayfarers, which provides all-inclusive small-group hiking tours, reports a surge of interest in its 'Remote Paradise' Walk in Argentinian Patagonia. Well-known for its extensive portfolio of tours in Europe, the UK and the US, The Wayfarers take slow-travel to South America with eight-night winter vacations hiking to some of the high spots of one of the world’s most magnificent unspoiled landscapes. As well as ‘must-see’ wonders like the Perito Moreno Glacier, The Wayfarers’ Remote Paradise Walk gives guests the opportunity to see how life is really lived in the remote and beautiful far south of Argentina. Add-ons to Buenos Aires, the Iguazu Falls, Torres del Paine in Chile or a stay on a traditional estancia are also offered. The Wayfarers’ founder Michael West says the company’s tried and trusted 'slow travel' formula of small groups, expert Walk Leaders and Managers and carefully chosen accommodations is the perfect way to experience the vast territories of Patagonia. Says Michael: 'A hiking vacation in Patagonia is a real bucket-list trip and our Walk takes care of everything, so all there is to do is to enjoy what truly is the trip of a lifetime. 'Our Walk Leaders and Managers are renowned for their expert knowledge and we certainly do get off the beaten track, meeting locals and seeing the country up-close, while our guests know that their accommodation will always be top quality with the best of local food and wines to enjoy. 'New for winter 2015 we have built in a stay at the Helsingfors Lodge, right inside the Los Glaciares National Park, near the astoundingly beautiful Blue Lagoon, which is yet another breathtaking ‘must-see’! 'And to wake up in the morning in the unique Relais & Chateau Eolo Lodge, on a 10,000 acre property in the La Anita Valley, with unsurpassed views of the Patagonian Steppes stretching away into the distance, is simply unforgettable.' Highlights of the trip include
  • A cruise to the foot of the awe-inspiring Perito Moreno Glacier where great ice boulders break away with a crack and a roar.
  • A visit to Los Glaciares National Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site
  • Hiking on the Mount Fitz Roy Trail and in the incomparable Anita Valley, with unforgettable views and the chance to see local wildlife
  • Drinking aperitifs in a bar made entirely of ice and a visit to the Glacier Museum.
