Active Patagonia: Classic treks in Argentina and Chile

14 days from £4,520pp

(based on two people sharing & excluding flights)

Chile / Argentina / Patagonia

  • Fitz Roy

Overview & Highlights

Low-altitude trekking through Patagonia's glaciated landscapes in Torres del Paine National Park (Chile) and the Fitz Roy massif in Los Glaciares National Park (Argentina) to discover the pinnacles of the region's natural scenery.

Patagonia is a vast and scarcely-populated wilderness of outstanding natural beauty which straddles the Andean border of southern Chile and Argentina. On this holiday you will savour stretches of the 2 most famous hikes, the W Trek in Chile and the M Trek in Argentina. The hikes are quite challenging:  walk for several hours over tricky terrain, sometimes steep. Good weather can’t be guaranteed in a region of fast-changing climatic conditions, but in the southern summer – November to March – you have a good chance of catching some clear, sunny days.

In the Patagonia region of both countries there’s a well-developed and expanding infrastructure to cater for the domestic and international demand for outdoor adventures, especially trekking. It is a primeval land of towering granite peaks, frontier-bending expanses of windswept pampa pitted with sparkling glacial lakes, and a huge domed sky which can be egg-shell blue calm or torn apart by angry clouds.
