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

Inspiring Wildlife Adventures since 1997

 

Entering our 18th year operating intimate and inspiring 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.

Our 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+Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest, 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. Check out our Wildlife Blog here.
