Patagonia

Torres del Paine  & Los Glaciares National Parks

20 - 30 March 2019

Instructors:  Jon Fuller & Maria Cecilia Costa 

 

Patagonian Chile and Argentina contain some of the most spectacular scenery on earth, with beautiful lakes, glaciers, and near-vertical mountain spires soaring thousands of feet above the surrounding terrain.   Guanacos and emu-like rheas roam the surrounding steppes while giant Andean Condors circle overhead.  

Visit this awe-inspiring region with Moab Photo Tours' Jon Fuller, along with local Patagonian mountain guide and professional photographer, Maria Cecilia Costa.  Hone your photographic skills and refine your photographic vision while being guided to the best locations to capture this remarkable landscape in camera.
