Sprawling across the border of Argentina and Chile, Patagonia is one of the planet’s greatest frontiers.

Wild and isolated, Patagonia is South America’s playground for intrepid adventurers. Its wind-swept plains, glaciated mountain ranges and turquoise lakes stretch for thousands of miles, and despite its desolation, it holds a wealth of unique flora and fauna.

Witness ice calving from Perito Moreno’s 5km glacier front, watch the sunrise over the legendary Torres del Paine, and enjoy breath-taking views from Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torres base camps. Keep your eyes peeled for Patagonia’s wildlife; flamingos, ibis and swans on the shores of Lake Argentino or befriend a charismatic guanaco as you cross the Patagonian steppes. With so much to see and do, Patagonia’s travel and nature experiences are enough to entice trekkers of all levels.

The lively towns of Punta Arenas and El Calafate are our gateways to Patagonia’s hiking trails. Private vehicles transfer us between each region, where we stay in carefully chosen boutique hotels or eco-friendly trekking lodges from where we enjoy spectacular day walks that are tailored to suit our group of trekkers.
