Tucan Travel have launched new Overland Tours through Patagonia. These new Overland Tours connect the busy transport hubs of Santiago and Buenos Aires with the remote region through a series of flights allowing clients to get from A to B at a faster, more comfortable and more convenient rate.
Jac Callan, Sales & Marketing Manager is quoted, “At Tucan Travel, we understand that our clients time is precious. This is why we have created these new Overland Tours that will take passengers to one of the most remote regions on earth in a shorter period of time, allowing them to make the most of their annual leave.”
The series of flights allow clients to spend more time in the region exploring some of the most beautiful national parks on foot, by boat and even on horseback where possible. When not flying, clients will travel on Tucan Travel’s purpose built expedition vehicles, staying in accommodation, the equivalent in comfort of 3* hotels. In Torres del Paine NP, travellers will stay in permanent tents with the option to upgrade to hotels nearby.
Tucan Travel’s new Overland Tours in Patagonia range from 10 days to 24 days in length. The first tours will depart for the beginning of the 2016 season and will run from November to April.
