Patagonia Torres del Paine photo workshop

Patagonia Torres del Paine photo workshop




Patagonia, the southern section of South America shared by Argentina and Chile, could well be the most dramatic place a photographer could hope to visit. With barren, wind-swept plains, ethereal glaciers, the imperious Andes mountains and the rainforests of Chile, this is a magnetic destination with more variety than you can imagine. On this photography tour you and your camera will encounter nature at its finest. Taking in everything from glacial sunsets to the peaks of the Andes, this autumn adventure in Patagonia is a genuine trip of a lifetime. Fresh snow, enchanting shades of the fall, zero tourists and landscapes to die for… what more could you want? Are you interested in coming along? Check out our itinerary and feel free to sign up or send us any questions.

We arrive to Punta Arenas, the gateway to Patagonia, Torres del Paine national park in Chile. You may have acclimatized yourself, have a good sleep after the long flight. The recommended arrival time will be given later by mail after you sign up for the tour (flight arrival from Santiago). We meet together at the welcome dinner. After the dinner we have an overnight at our hotel.

Day 2

After the breakfast in hotel we move towards Torres del Paine national park, located in Chile (5-6 h). You’ll see many animals on the way, including guanaco, ostrich, armadillo and maybe even puma! As we enter Chile landscapes become more wild and strict with beautiful ridges of Andes on horizon. On the way we may have short stops to meet and greet Patagonia fauna.

Last part of the road (60 km) is gravel, through the inner territories in the park. We check in to our hotel, have a bit of rest and continue to the sunset location depending on the weather. April is the end of tourist and hikers seasons so you’ll see only photographers in the park.
