Description of Patagonia adventure holiday, tailormade

This Patagonia adventure holiday takes you on a tailor made trip around Chile and Argentina’s top natural highlights. These include the 80m high walls of the stunning Perito Moreno Glacier and a 4WD tour of Torres del Paine National Park, spotting wild guanacos and taking in the incredible scenery. There will also be time to enjoy El Chalten, El Calafate and Puerto Natales at your leisure – perhaps taking advantage of one of the many self-guided treks in the area.

Since this itinerary is tailor made, you are free to customise it as you see fit, adding extra/fewer nights or destinations. You could, for example choose to add on a trip to Buenos Aires, or visit the world famous wineries in Mendoza – the choice is yours.

Responsible tourism: Patagonia adventure holiday, tailormade

Environment

As a locally owned Argentine business, we strive to operate all of our tours in a responsible manner. We work with local tour operators, tour guides and properties to ensure that they understand the importance of protecting the environment as it is a finite resource that, if managed properly, can provide economic benefit to the local community.

We follow all local environmental laws and legislation, and work with local partners that minimally impact the natural surroundings to ensure that we protect the national parks and destinations that we visit for future generations.

National Park entrance fees are paid directly to the national parks by the clients to ensure that they directly support the parks´ maintenance and preservation.

During our trekking tours with overnight camping in a national park, local or wilderness site, we aim to minimize waste by using products with minimum packaging, leaving no litter behind, keeping all water sources clean and leave the camp sites cleaner than we found them. At the core of this effort is the desire to leave no trace behind and to minimize our impact on the beautiful lands that we visit.

We are working to keep our operations green and are utilizing web/e-communication to reduce paper consumption. We have taken the decision to no longer produce 75 page printed brochures and focus on web/e-communications. We utilize low energy lightbulbs in our offices, recycle paper/glass and try to minimize our water consumption. We also reduce our plastic bottle waste by providing refillable large water coolers. Additionally, we are constantly assessing our operations to see how we may partner with and support local communities, NGOs, wilderness areas, regional and national parks that we visit.

We are also looking into how we might implement a voluntary carbon-offset program for our clients.

Community

As an Argentine owned travel business, we understand the importance of supporting our local partners during both the good times and the bad times. By partnering with locally owned hotels, activity providers, guides, restaurants and properties over the years, we not only ensure a high level of quality and that our clients' needs are satisfied, but we also develop long term relationships with local business owners and help them plan and prepare for the busy and slow times of the year. And this also helps our clients to better experience the local culture.

We hire local guides and pay them a solid wage (which is generally higher than the local average). We also train our guides and cover the associated costs with the training program.

We prefer small, family run operations to ensure that we help sustain the community economy, and actively seek them out rather than using international chains.

We donate each month to the Argentine not-for-profit organization, “Por los Chicos” and our support benefits poor and vulnerable street children in Argentina.

In addition, we also share our ethos of cultural and environmental respect with our local partners. Be it a small hotel, mountain lodge, kayak or hiking guide/outfitter, we ensure that they work their best to incorporate environmental and culturally sensitive best practice in their operations, so as to benefit the diverse communities in which we operate.
