I travelled on the Tucan Travel Patagonia Highlights tour in November 2019 and spent the weeks running up to my holiday gazing at photos of mountains and trying to plan what I should pack. Patagonia has an unforgiving climate, and I read that the weather changes daily (I can confirm - it does!), not to mention the remote locations we...

Patagonia is the wild child of South America, nestled deep in the south of the continent straddling both Chile and Argentina.
