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.
PlanetOn this self-guided Patagonia itinerary we partner with local vendors who prioritize conservation and protection of the landscape. Your trip briefing includes responsible trekker practices like packing out waste (leave no trace), carrying a reusable water bottle, and tips on how to protect local flora and fauna along the trail. As well, the group transportation provided to/from Torres del Paine minimizes environmental impact.
Our community partner donation for this trip supports Torres del Paine Legacy Fund who work tirelessly to preserve and restore the special ecosystems of the area through a plethora of programs. Our add-on 'citizen scientist' day with Legacy Fund allows guests the option to gain in-depth knowledge about the unique bio diversity of Patagonia and even participate in their current projects like reforestation.
Before your departure, you will also be provided with responsible travel tips such as eco-friendly travel gear and unique local information to help you practice sustainability.
PeopleAlong this journey you will be supporting locally owned small business like your boutique hotel in Puerto Natales and your catamaran trip to Glacier Grey. Our on-the-ground partners who provide your trip briefing in Puerto Natalaes and daily meals along the trekking route value fair employment practices and compensate their staff well.
Your trip will also benefit the many community projects that Torres Del Paine Legacy Fund supports, such as tourism training, waste recycling and environmental stewardship programs that aim to sustain the beauty and unique culture of this region for generations to come. The many add-on activities that include local guides offer you an even greater opportunity to connect to traditional customs and insider knowledge in the area, from visiting a working estancia to cycling remote trails.
In addition, when you book you will be provided with cultural tips and helpful knowledge to navigate your trip from start to finish in a way that benefits locals.
