Description of Patagonia trekking tour

Trek through out of this world scenery in Patagonia and visit two of the region’s buzziest cities on this 10 day tour. Patagonia lies in the far south of Chile and Argentina and this tour is bookended by time in their big, exciting capitals: Santiago and Buenos Aires. In between, explore the wilds of Patagonia where the landscapes are beyond dramatic – think towering peaks, vast glaciers and tumbling waterfalls. Trek through Torres del Paine National Park, home to jagged granite pillars that turn pink in the sunset, on a four day camping trip with meals taken care of. See the phenomenal Perito Moreno Glacier, too, a blue-tinged wonder and one of Patagonia’s most impressive sights and look out for wildlife while admiring the scenery: guanacos, condors and Chilean pink flamingos. This is an adventurous trekking trip, with a good level of fitness necessary, which is balanced out by time in two of South America’s most fascinating cities.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travellers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world we are exploring; to travel responsibly is at the heart of our commitment as a global tour operator.

Journey to Patagonia and take in the magnificent, expanse of vistas that is the scenery of Torres del Paine. Exploring this wilderness at the end of the world by foot is a fantastic experience for all keen walkers and our itinerary has been compiled to allow not only you, our traveller to get the best out of the trek, but also to ensure that the region is conserved for future visitors. We believe in running trips that adhere to the concept of negative impact (or even positive impact) tourism and this is no exception.

On trek we will be staying at campsites within Torres del Paine National Park. Our entrance fee to the park, along with camping fees, will contribute towards the maintenance and protection of this beautiful wilderness area.

The sale of bottled water contributes to an enormous environmental problem around the world. In addition to the water in bottles, the production of a 1 litre plastic bottle takes 2 litres of water and 200ml of oil. A large proportion end up in limited landfill or discarded in waterways and natural environments. In countries like Argentina and the Patagonia region of Chile, tap water is treated and safe to drink so we encourage all our travellers to please avoid the purchase of bottled water by refilling from the tap.

The Impacts of this Trip

In Santiago, Puerto Natales, Calafate and Buenos Aires we’ll stay in small, locally owned properties, traditional in their style and reflective of the Patagonia region. Likewise when we go out to eat as a group it will be in traditional, often family run establishments who source their produce from the surrounding area. Our aim is to keep the financial benefits that our itinerary brings to the region local, supporting local industry, small businesses and helping to provide employment opportunities. To this end, your group leader, driver (and all of our on the ground support team) will have come from the Patagonia regions through which we are travelling.

Throughout your trip you will be encouraged to take steps to ensure that your journey is environmentally responsible as possible. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with the appropriate disposal of rubbish en route, recycling wherever possible. We also encourage all our travellers to use refillable water bottles rather than purchasing regular supplies of bottled water.

Reviewed on 20 Jun 2017 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The entire trail and Machu Picchu itself were phenomenal, of course, but the visit with the Andean village was surprisingly touching and enlightening.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


There were certain items for camping that would have been helpful to have that weren't on the Incan Trail items list, e.g. Flipflops

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I've done other village visits with locals on other tours in other parts of the world, but this was the first one that really seemed like both sides, locals and foreigners, were benefitting from the experience. The knowledge and cultural exchange was priceless. To improve, the guides could do more to encourage tourists to not smoke or touch the ruins. It was disheartening to see a smoker on top of Dead Woman's Pass and nobody say anything to discourage it.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent, trio of a lifetime.
