Luxuriously wild, the southernmost tip of South America has been attracting outdoor enthusiasts for years. Johanna Turres, Kensington’s Senior South American Expert likes the wider assortment of adventures suiting travelers of all types for 2011. “In addition to trekking its landmark glaciers, travelers can experience authentic estancias (Argentinean ranches), relax at any number of new eco-camps or enjoy a leisurely cruise along Patagonia’s sparkling coast. This once remote land is now ideal for cruisers, adventurers, nature travelers, families and more.”

Glamping - noun - 1) glamorous camping 2) camping in style
Designed for those who want to get away from it all, hike in pristine nature, but who don't want to rough it. On the shores of Lago Toro, at the edge of Torres del Paine National Park, each of the 18 yurts at Patagonia Camp is heated, has en suite bath, a private terrace, and offers spectacular views. All meals are included, and there's a full range of full and half day programs to keep you busy. When it's time to relax, enjoy the view of the mountains from the comfort of the lounge, perhaps with a glass of Chilean red in hand.
