Overview & Highlights

Two classic moderate hikes, the M Trek with the backdrop of Mount Fitz Roy in Argentine Patagonia and a trek at the end of the world in the uninhabited virgin territory of Tierra del Fuego.

The world's best wilderness mountain treks can be hard to reach. Not so in Argentine Patagonia: world-class hiking trails are just a short drive away from the airports of El Calafate, Los Glaciares National Park, and Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego National Park. We've put two treks together, the M Trek and a hike on Tierra del Fuego, in one walking holiday with four nights' camping.This is comfortable, low intensity hiking appropriate for the weekend hiker. 

The M Trek, so named after its shape, is a long recognised and popular route, renowned for its mountain views of the Fitz Roy massif, as well as vistas over glacial lagoons. The Tierra del Fuego hike is less well known or walked, which adds to its appeal. Just a few kilometres inland from the busy port of Ushuaia is a quiet wilderness of ancient forest clinging to mountain cliffs, hidden streams and views over vertiginous glaciers. Follow guanaco trails where footpaths have not yet been forged. Some peaks you’ll see are still as yet nameless. A superb trek.

Our Expert's Opinion

Trekking is one of Patagonia's most enticing draws, so we created an active holiday that focuses on this activity. You don't have to be an expert trekker to enjoy this holiday - if you enjoy hiking in the hills on weekends, you'll appreciate the low-intensity hikes we've included in this trip. For an added sense of adventure, you'll camp overnight by mountain lakes and in forested valleys.
