Active Patagonia: Classic treks in Argentina and Chile

14 days from £3095pp
 

Private Journey

 
Patagonia is a vast and scarcely-populated wilderness of outstanding natural beauty which straddles the Andean border of southern Chile and Argentina. It is a primeval land of towering granite peaks, frontier-bending expanses of windswept pampa pitted with sparkling glacial lakes, and a huge domed sky which can be egg-shell blue calm or torn apart by angry clouds.

In the Patagonia region of both countries there’s a well-developed and expanding infrastructure to cater for the domestic and international demand for outdoor adventures, especially trekking.

You will savour stretches of the 2 most famous hikes, the W Trek in Chile and the M Trek in Argentina. The hikes are quite challenging:  you will have experience of walking for several hours and over tricky terrain, sometimes steep. Good weather can’t be guaranteed of course in a region of fast-changing climatic conditions, but in the southern summer – November to March – you have a good chance of catching some clear, sunny days, promising a magical experience.
