There are special places in the world that are a must for the outdoor lover, explore these beautiful environments and share our experiences with others. 

Patagonia is no exception, the southern Andes mountains with its huge glaciers, lakes & fjords, The end of the world, wild and wonderful, an explorers dream bound by the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. It has long been my ambition to visit this part of the world and this month that dream will come true.

Alex Langdon and I plan to make the three week recce of Chilean & Argentinian Patagonia. Our journey starts from Chamonix on the 16th March as we travel to Madrid, Santiago and to Puerto Natales in the south of Chile, from here our adventure begins explore it two stunningly beautiful UNESO regions in that area of the world.

We start by heading to the Torres del Paine National Park to take a look at the Piney Trail or the O as its now more commonly known. The Circuit includes the world famous “W” trek, but also, it goes around the Massif exploring some of the wildest areas on the park. An adventure for the brave and the nature lovers! Paine Towers, Paine Horns, French Valley, Grey Glacier, Dickson Lake, Los Perros Glacier, and, the southern Patagonian Ice field are some of the incredible highlights.

Our visit will include Perito Moreno National Park, El Calafate, Glacier Moreno and the Los Glaciares National Park, El Chalten with hiking around the base of Cerro Torre & Fitzroy.

In this day and age with what is going on in the world it seems wrong to be planning a trip such as this. This is an incredibly environmentally sensitive area of the world and appreciate tourism is one of the elements that threatens this impressive landscape. It is an important factor that can’t be overlooked and responsible tourism is the only way forward. Therefore, we will look into ways in which we can minimise our impact being there and support local environmental projects. 

In addition to this, we are committed to giving financial support to organisations worldwide that do invaluable work to protecting and restoring wildlife, promoting regenerative agriculture, supporting local communities and the development of existing and new national parks. In relation to this area of the world take a look at the Tompkins Foundation.

Get Wild…. In ways large and small, as individuals and groups, we have the power to reorient the trajectory of life on Earth toward beauty, diversity, wildness, and health. Tomkins Foundation

A full trip report will be forthcoming once we return back to Chamonix. We will put together an itinerary for 2024 I the same way we have done for our treks in Nepal and Morocco.
