The Patagonian Andes - a spectacular region ideally suited to the walker who does not want to commit to a strenuous trek. On our day walks in Los Glaciers 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 with a series of fast Zodiacs and a catamaran through pristine waterways to our lodge in Torres del Paine National Park. Viewing the beautiful and awe inspiring scenery from the river ways 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 our 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.
