Planning a trip to Patagonia is overwhelming. We spent a month travelling across Patagonia as a gay couple, in particular in the Chubut region, Santa Cruz in Argentina and Torres del Paine in Chile. Since our travels in the Gobi desert in Mongolia where we got to stay with nomadic families in their yurts, we really wanted to do this again, but in a luxurious way. Located near the entrance of the Torres del Paine National Park by the shores of Lake Toro, the camp is surrounded by spectacular landscapes. The yurts are absolutely lush. They have a private bathroom, comfy king-sized beds and even central heating.

An option you can take is a boat trip up to the face of the glacier which towers 40m above the lake at its face. When you go to the viewing walkways which face the glacier there is an excellent cafe which is worth a visit if you plan to do the full circuit. There is also a restaurant at the far end of the walkways and a free shuttle bus back up to the first cafe and start of the walkways. The glacier is truly immense and stretches 31km back into the mountains. A great days excursion. A highlight of our 2 week trip to Patagonia. The Glacier Perito Merino is awe inspiring.
