Description of Patagonia overland truck tour, South America

Travelling overland brings you up close to a country and its culture and it’s one of the best ways to experience South America. This trip spends just over three weeks travelling overland by truck through beautiful and exciting Patagonia, beginning in Santiago in Chile, snaking south and ending in remote Ushuaia in Argentina, the world’s southernmost town.

Patagonia is the perfect destination for anyone who loves the outdoors, and this 23-day adventure includes lots of camping in National Parks with the chance to hike, cycle, climb and ride horses through breathtaking scenery.

The journey begins in the elegant capital of Chile, Santiago, beautifully tucked in amongst the mountains. From here, visit the spectacular Lake District towns of Bariloche and Pucón, which are a paradise for adventurers, with lots of optional outdoor activities available. Then journey south on the stunning Carretera Austral to desolate and wild Patagonia, a legendary place that is home to some of the most amazing views on the planet. We will explore the magnificent Los Glaciares National Park in Argentinian Patagonia, from both El Calafate and El Chaltén, so that we can trek around the peaks of Mount Fitz Roy and take a guided trip to the enormous Perito Moreno Glacier.

In Chile, one of the trip’s undeniable highlights awaits – the awe-inspiring Torres del Paine National Park. You have four days here to explore and hike around the beautiful landscapes of mountains, glaciers and icebergs. Finally, we will cross the Strait of Magellan and travel through this huge, wild region to the end of the earth, Tierra del Fuego, and to the town of Ushuaia, perched on its southernmost tip. All in all an unforgettable overlanding experience!

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Patagonia overland truck tour, South America

We are dedicated to minimising the effects our trips have on the environment, and are committed to ensuring that we have a positive impact on the local communities we travel through.

On this epic trip through Chilean and Argentinian Patagonia, we will be travelling overland using a combination of overland vehicles, boats, and buses, thus cutting out the need for air travel and reducing carbon-emissions. Going overland (by car and on foot for excursions) means you get to experience physically crossing the borders between countries as well as explore places which are off the beaten track.

In order to minimise the impact of our presence on the wildlife and ecosystem of the areas where we travel, we explicitly forbid any involvement in activities that harm or exploit animals, and advise our crew in specific activities to avoid in this regard.

We believe that local culture and communities must be an integral part of our trips. We recognise that we are guests of the local communities we travel through and strive to make these communities into our partners.

Wherever we are in the world, we prefer to use smaller locally-owned businesses, ensuring that local communities gain a direct economic benefit from our business, for example, we use small locally owned hotels, campsites and activity providers wherever possible.

We use local guides and operators throughout the trip; for example, in Torres del Paine National Park we use a responsible local operator that provides training and employment to many local people as guides, providing them with stable employment in the tourism industry.

All of our vehicles conform to UK emission controls when they leave the UK and are regularly serviced and maintained in established, locally-owned workshops ensuring that they run as efficiently as possible and our economic returns to a country reach beyond tourism. Waste products such as oils and tyres are often reused several times after we have finished with them, as we pass them on to local people.

All trucks carry a 350-litre water tank, providing drinking water for the group and minimising the need to purchase bottled water. Rather than using plastic bags when shopping for food, we also provide reusable longer lasting bags; we bury our bio-degradable waste or give it to local people to feed livestock; and for cooking we generally use gas instead of wood, a cleaner fuel which leaves natural resources for local people. Passengers and crew are encouraged to use rechargeable batteries for items such as cameras, which can be charged from mains supplies or on our trucks as we travel.

In the office and as a company: We are committed to trying to reduce, re-use and recycle as much as is possible: we reduce what we print by using email and online media for the majority of our communication; any necessary print is always 2-sided and all paper products (in addition to plastics, glass, cardboard, oils and metal) are recycled. We minimise our energy consumption in whatever way we can (e.g. using energy efficient light bulbs and minimising water usage with reduced water cisterns in the bathroom for example).

We are committed to promoting human rights within our sphere of influence – this means trying to ensure that everybody involved with us are treated with fairness and respect, including our office staff, crew, local guides and suppliers, as well as all the other stakeholders.

We are also involved with a variety of community projects in key destinations as we visit. Our involvement with these projects is a long-term commitment, allowing us and our passengers to participate directly in delivering real practical benefits to the communities we travel through on the ground. The projects are not tourist initiatives, but a way of employing tourism to generate funding and support and facilitate community interaction.
