Untouched Aisen: Little-known Patagonia

15 days from £2618pp

Group Journey

There are surely few areas of Latin America of such outstanding natural beauty, yet, owing to its remoteness, Aisén in Chilean Patagonia is relatively unvisited. Lying between the justifiably popular volcanic lake district to the north and the windswept granite peaks and glaciers of Torres del Paine to the south, this remarkable region reveals a wilderness of cool rainforest, glaciers, and sweeping vistas across stunning mountain peaks.

Not all that long ago, finding comfortable transport and accommodation in the region was a challenge. Now, as the area opens up with new roads and begins to develop its tourism potential, a number of reasonable and good hotels and lodges have been established.

A sense of adventure is vital, as is an understanding of the nature of journeys which explore remote areas.
