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.

Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival


Patagonia Photo Workshop with Daniel Kordan


Our Patagonia photography adventure starts in the Argentinean city of El Calafate. It’s known as the gateway to the breathtaking Patagonia. Arrival airport El Calafate (FTE), recommended arrival time will be provided later to the group. You will fly via Buenos Aires by Aerolineas Argentina. You can book this return leg separately on Aerolineas website.

Please note that complimentary shuttle will be organized for this recommended time. You are flexible with your flights this day – there are no activities except welcome dinner planned during this day.

Over dinner we’ll start your trip off with a bang, with the very special Cordero Patagonico – a famous dish of Patagonian lamb roasted on a local parilla. There’s no doubt that it’s the best meat we’ve tasted on our photography adventures around the world, so we’re sure you’ll enjoy it too! After dinner we’ll settle in for the night at the hotel.


Day 2 - Perito Moreno Glacier


Patagonia Photo Workshop with Daniel Kordan


We visit Perito Moreno in the afternoon til sunset to have a stroll among amazing Patagonia forest with panoramic views towards Perito Moreno glacier. Going back to El Calafate after evening at Perito Moreno for dinner and check in to hotel. Overnight at El Calafate. (BLD)


Day 3 - El Chalten


Patagonia Photo Workshop with Daniel Kordan


After the breakfast at hotel we move towards small village El Chalten, located in Argentina. Allow around 3 hours (paved road). We settle at our hotel in El Chalten for 2 nights. At sunset we have photography session at canyon with stunning panoramic views towards Andean ridge. The Fitz Roy river flowing in bends beneath our feet leading the sight towards towers of Fitz Roy (Chalten) massif. (B,LB,D)


Day 4 - Fitz Roy, Lago Desierto


Patagonia Photo Workshop with Daniel Kordan


Before the breakfast we depart to morning photography session to the point with stunning panoramic views towards Andean ridge. The Fitz Roy river flowing in bends beneath our feet leading the sight towards towers of Fitz Roy (Chalten) massif.

At the daytime we explore the Lago Desierto sector with waterfalls and river cascades. Mountains and glaciers will surround us for the full day.

For sunset we pick up one of panoramic points with views of Fitz Roy massif. (BLD)


Day 5 - Torres del Paine


Patagonia Photo Workshop with Daniel Kordan


After breakfast at our hotel in El Chalten, the group will start the journey toward towards the Torres del Paine national park. We cross the border Argentina-Chile.

As we make our way through the heady scenery and near the peaks of Torres del Paine, with any luck we’ll also see plenty of animals too. A puma or two isn’t unheard of, but much more likely is a photogenic combination of guanaco, ostrich and armadillo.

Nearing the park the landscape will become more wild, and the imperious ridges of the Andes will begin to loom on the horizon. Naturally, we’ll take plenty of time to stop and shoot the local flora and fauna. The last part of today’s journey is made on a gravel road, as we traverse through the inner territories of Torres del Paine.

Inside the park we’ll check in to our hotel. We’ll have a short rest before heading out to our sunset location. The autumn here brings with it the end of the tourist season, so it’s likely that only photographers will be left in the park.


Day 6 - 8: Torres del Paine


Patagonia Photo Workshop with Daniel Kordan


We spend the next 3 days in the park visiting many beautiful diverse locations. We know area very well, so we will choose photography locations depending on the next day’s weather forecast.
