Andes Adventure

I had an amazing trip! A once in a lifetime experience, and memories I will cherish forever ... the entire experience from booking to trekking was exceptional, I couldn't expect higher standards.

Paine & Fitz Roy Trek

The Patagonian Andes forms a wonderland of glacial lakes, towering granite peaks, impressive glaciers, secluded lakes, beech forests and rolling grasslands. A spectacular region ideally suited to the walker who does not want to commit to a strenuous trek. On our day walks in Los Glaciares National Park we stay in comfortable lodges and trek to the base of Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre the granite peaks that have inspired mountaineers and trekkers throughout the world. We transfer to Puerto Natales for a taste of Chile before cruising up the stunning fjords to the impressive Balmaceda Glacier. We continue on a series of fast Zodiacs and a catamaran through pristine waterways to our refugio in Torres del Paine National Park. Viewing the beautiful scenery from the riverways is an unforgettable highlight of this trip. By contrast our fully supported classic W trek leads into the heart of the Torres del Paine National Park. From comfortable mountain refugios we trek beneath a panorama of impressive granite peaks rising above the tumbling glaciers and deep blue lakes and undertake exhilarating walks to clamber across the glacial moraine to the base of the peaks. Crossing the button grass we may also appreciate the guanacos and other wildlife, while we hope to spot a mighty condor soaring overhead.

traveller reviews

The Paine & Fitz Roy Trek was an enjoyable and enriching experience, due in no small part to the efforts of our leader, Juli. She had a great sense of humor, and was fully involved with the whole group at all times. Great stuff!!
