This overland adventure is an outdoor lover's dream with the best Patagonia has to offer: hike to the top of a volcano and peer into its crater in Pucon, climb ice and trek on a glacier in El Chalten, raft the Futaleufu's class five rapids by the Carretera Austral, see the incredible Perito Moreno glacier near El Calafate, challenge yourself to the famous 'W' Trek in Torres del Paine, and visit the world's most southerly city, Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego.  Then see the southern Atlantic wildlife on the Valdes Peninsula before a well-earned steak and glass of red wine in Buenos Aires, Argentina's cosmopolitan capital.  Take in the majestic Iguazu Falls and join the party in Rio
