Argentina & Chile Patagonia holiday
Description of Argentina & Chile Patagonia holiday
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThis 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.
This is a journey through the Chilean and Argentinean Patagonia. Much of the trip is spent in pristine nature, including some pristine National parks. Our travellers are briefed by local guides as to how to minimise their impact on the environment. Advise includes staying on marked tracks, only picnicking on designated areas and disposing of all waste responsibly.
Travellers will experience the extraordinary beauty of this natural environment: millennial native rainforests, snow-capped volcanoes, waterfalls and lakes. 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.
On this tour, we work with authentic lodging run by people aware of their environmental responsibilities. Most of the accommodation consists of traditional constructions, often built using local materials such as native woods.
PeopleWe want local populations to benefit from the resources generated by tourism, by putting as much as possible back into the local communities. We support local employment and communities in our choice of accommodation, tours, locations, etc. 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.
During this trip, travellers will have a chance to familiarize with customs and traditions of local Mapuche both in Argentina and Chile. 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 support local educational projects. Each year, we support and develop educational programs focused on ancestral cultures and the environment, thanks to a solidarity development fund generated by our travellers.
