From the Founder's Desk


It’s been 17 years since we started operations as a company. All this time, we have explored every remote corner of Chile and Patagonia, and have been fortunate to share our passion for what we do with our friends and customers.

This upcoming season finds us looking forward to go out in the field once again, with renewed enthusiasm, additions to our staff and a bunch of new programmes aiming to expand our scope and venture into some of the most spectacular places our vast continent has to offer, always keeping and if possible improving our standards and doing our best to give you a first-class experience. Read more...


Socialize with the Wildlife

Visit our wildlife blog - We want to share our encounters with wildlife with you. © Far South ExpeditionsOur naturalists and guides are periodically delivering short notes accompanying photographs taken in our tours, to let you have a virtual peek into the wonders that we experience first-hand in the field. 

This material, which is shared through our Wildlife Blog into social networks such as Google+FacebookTwitterPinterest and Tumblr, is in the format of a brief, easy-to-read “mini-article”, but on the other hand it is intended to be of high quality both visually and in written content, so you can enjoy the photographs while learning a little bit about the natural history of the subject. 

Join us daily on our glimpses into the awesome wilderness of some of the remotest and most pristine ecosystems in the Planet! Check out our Wildlife Blog here.
