Discover the hidden wonders and diverse landscapes of South America's most beautiful region on this nine-day photo workshop in Patagonia. Photographers and nature lovers who want to capture lush forests, mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, and wildlife with the guidance of award-winning photographers should book a spot in this photo workshop today.

Your multi-day adventure in Patagonia begins in El Calafate, a beautiful city in Argentina. You'll meet your guides and the rest of the workshop joiners through a welcome dinner highlighting Patagonian lamb and other local delicacies.

Over the next eight days, local guides and two seasoned photographers will lead your adventure. With their guidance, you'll not only witness Patagonia region's iconic sights, but also learn to master the art of capturing its essence through your lens.

Nestled at the southern tip of South America, Patagonia is a vast and diverse land of extremes between Argentina and Chile. Its geography ranges from soaring mountain peaks to enormous steppes, from dense forests to expansive glaciers. In addition, wildlife thrives here in abundance, with guanacos, foxes, pumas, and many bird species calling it their home.

The Perito Moreno glacier, a magnificent natural wonder, is one of your first stops. Towering ice walls and vivid blue hues create a surreal backdrop for your photography. As you explore its intricate ice formations from a distance, your guides will share valuable tips and techniques, helping you achieve the perfect shot of this glacial giant.

Another area to explore is the El Chalten village and its surrounding areas, nestled beneath the imposing Fitz Roy mountain. Against these rugged peaks, you'll capture the stunning beauty of Patagonia's autumnal palette.

On day four, the adventure takes you to Lago del Desierto, a hidden gem surrounded by pristine forests and crystalline waters. Amidst this serene wilderness, your guides will assist you in harnessing the play of light and shadow, crafting excellent images of lakes, valleys, and waterfalls.

The remaining days of your photography tour will focus on the Torres del Paine National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on the Chilean side of Patagonia. Here, the iconic Andes mountains serve as your canvas, while the park's diverse landscapes, from azure lakes to sprawling grasslands, provide endless opportunities for exploration and photography.

As you approach the end of your Patagonia multi-day tour, you'll make a final stop in the historic city of Punta Arenas. With its vibrant culture and scenic waterfront, this coastal city provides a captivating backdrop to complete your photography experience in Patagonia.

Throughout your adventure, you'll be treated to comfortable accommodations for eight nights, sumptuous meals, and hassle-free bus transportation between locations. All national park entrance fees are included, ensuring unrestricted access to Patagonia's wonders.
