Lana, my trip planner, connected with me on our very first call and never dropped one detail in creating the most perfect trip for my daughter, grand daughter and myself that I could ever imagine. She knew exactly what I was after and arranged every last detail for me perfectly. I was able to call her with some on-the-fly changes to the itinerary and she and her staff were ON it immediately! We were fortunate beyond belief. Kudos to Elevate Destinations!.

Chile offers an extensive and vast wilderness. Take a trip to see a wondrous region beloved by the visionary Douglas Tompkins (founder of Esprit and North Face) who bought and protected vast acreages of land so that future generations could enjoy its splendor.

Patagonia – Exclusive Wilderness
Aguas Arriba is a small, rustic but homey lodge with only six rooms. You have to take a boat to get there — a scenic sail past glaciers — and once you arrive, you’re on the doorstep of a wild, and private version of Southern Patagonia. From the lodge, enjoy impressive views of the towering Mt. Fitzroy and lots of trekking opportunities. This lodge is also great for fly fishing.
Wine Country Retreat
If wine country calls, Entre Cielos is a fabulous way to unwind and bask in the glorious sunshine of Mendoza, Argentina. Nights full of stargazing and wine tasting, and days spent exploring, would make for a welcoming couples retreat! The hotel and spa are set on a 20-acre vineyard with views of the soaring Andes Mountains. The spa and hammam on site offer various treatments for added relaxation.
