Join us for an unforgettable 10-days of guided trekking through the virgin paradise of Northern Patagonia. Along the way you’ll become intimately acquainted with this region of the Andes, which has only just recently gained the touristic appreciation it deserves. We will enjoy contact with a rich local culture, hiking through pristine temperate rainforests, and marvel at towering granite peaks reminiscent of those of Yosemite. We spend our time in the superlative Cochamó and Puelo River Valleys, using a diverse set of trails including ancient trade routes as well as tracks created in just the past few years in the building of the new park, Tagua Tagua. Our small group will head way off the beaten path through the untamed regions of Chile and do so in style as our daily efforts are rewarded with incredible scenery, fascinating people, cozy accommodation, tasty local cuisine, and delectable Chilean wines. Simply put, you’ve got to see this place!
