Description of Patagonia national parks holiday

This Patagonia National Parks holiday is a 14 day self guided adventure through this remote and spectacular part of South America. Discover its dramatic mountains, glaciers and wildlife and stay in friendly local hotels and mountain refuges.

You’ll visit the National Parks of Los Glaciares in Argentina and Torres del Paine in Chile, both given World Heritage Site status thanks to their breathtaking beauty. Here, you can hike through dramatic landscapes where jagged granite peaks tower above lakes, glaciers and icebergs.

This two week break is full of highlights, including the famously scenic Route 40 from El Calafate to El Chalten, the dramatic Perito Moreno Glacier, which calves massive blocks of ice into Lake Argentino, and lots of excellent hiking around El Chalten, nicknamed the Argentinian capital of trekking. You’ll see Fitz Roy, Patagonia’s sacred granite mountain and spend four nights in beautiful Torres del Paine National Park.

This trip can be tailored to suit your needs. It’s an independent, self guided holiday, using a mixture of public buses, private transfers and domestic flights. We create a personalised Road Book, custom made for your journey, which contains all the information you need to enjoy this holiday and for it to run smoothly. You will also be supplied with a mobile phone, too, so you can contact us 24/7.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Patagonia national parks holiday

Environment

This trip includes two of the most stunning natural parks in the region: Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina and Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. The entrance fee contributes to the maintenance and conservation of such important ecosystems. The philosophy of the parks is “Leave no trace”. Local rangers will advise travellers as to how to minimise their impact on the environment. Some key guidelines include keeping to marked trails, not disturbing the natural resources and taking back all the rubbish.

Travellers will be briefed as to how to hike responsibly and respectfully. We have developed some handy guidance to help respect the outdoors. Useful tips on how to travel responsibly, as well as information on local flora and fauna can also be found in the road book we provide to our travellers.

This is a tailor-made, independent trip; groups are very small, normally comprised of 2 to 4 people, helping to minimise the negative environmental and social impact.

Community

We support local employment and communities in our choice of accommodation, tours, restaurants, etc. We want local populations to benefit from the resources generated by tourism, by putting as much as possible back into the local communities. We always take into consideration the feedback we receive from the local population to try to improve the quality of services in the best way possible.

This trip is no different from others we provide, in that it encourages real interaction between people while respecting the culture, history and customs of each individual community. All travellers are provided with detailed guidelines as to how to travel responsibly. We provide our travellers with a road book with useful information on local culture and customs.

We donate 3% of the total price of this trip to co-fund micro-projects implemented by local schools, associations and ONGs. These are community projects based on education and conservation activities, especially addressed to young people.
