Hikers Patagonia

Our most active hiking tour of Patagonia ventures into the heart of Torres del Paine National Park, Chile, then crosses into Argentina's Glacier National Park and the peaks of  Mt. Fitz Roy near El Chalten. Designed as an active Patagonia vacation, we are strategically based in comfortable Suite Dome Tents at Las Torres EcoCamp under the towering rock spires of Torres del Paine and at boutique estancias and mountain lodges in El Calafate and El Chalte.

In one the most spectacular hiking areas in the world, amble among the mountain peaks on undulating trails that contour past turquoise lakes, waterfalls, hanging glaciers, and the pampas where guanaco roam and condors soar. Optional hikes to high base camps and lookouts afford spectacular views of sheer rock walls, calving glaciers, and chances to observe rock climbers. Accompanied by professional Patagonia guides, each day of this Patagonia adventure tour in Chile and Argentina presents different hiking options, including  a non-technical mini-trek on Perito Moreno Glacier, a glimpse of life on a traditional estancia, lots of wildlife viewing and photographic opportunities.
