Join a Patagonia adventure tour or expedition and travel deep into Patagonia’s beautiful mountains and valleys.
This is a vast land of fjords, lakes, glaciers, high Andean peaks and grassy plains. The coast is a wildlife paradise, ideal for nature lovers. The mountains are home to pumas, guanaco and soaring condors. Gauchos and huasos, the local cowboys, roam the extensive pampas on horseback.
The sheer variety within this southern land means we can organise a wide range of adventure expeditions and tours. If you like off-the-beaten-track adventure, are willing to travel far and love open landscapes, wide sky and a feeling of pioneering then Patagonia can offer that adventure. It has many hidden corners yet to be well trodden.
For an extreme remote expedition, nothing can beat the Patagonian ice caps. Both the North Patagonia Ice Cap and the South Patagonia Ice Field offer amazing expedition adventures.
If you really want to challenge yourself and take on the wilderness and wide-open spaces for a life-changing experience this is the trip for you. Enjoy a week far away from civilisation as you snowshoe or ski around the back of the iconic peaks of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre. Push yourself to new limits in Arctic-style conditions on this South Patagonia Ice Field adventure.
Another challenge is to join a mountaineering expedition to the summit of South America’s highest peak, Aconcagua. This is a non-technical but tough trip, with climate and altitude posing a challenge as you ascend to nearly 7,000m.
In Chile, the Paine Circuit in Torres del Paine national park is a multi-day hike taking you to the less-visited side of the Paine mountain spires. The landscapes and wildlife in this part of the world are unsurpassable.
For adventure expeditions, Patagonia offers unbeatable opportunities. Ask for our suggestions to suit you.
Great expedition overall, personally, it was tough, though a fantastic experience.
Very good guides who always came up with the goods. Camp was very good with very good facilities and food.

We're back in El Calafate at the conclusion of our wonderful adventure.
Thanks so much to you, Andean Trails, and the local operators here in Argentina and Chile for what turned out to be a perfectly executed trip.
Everything went as scheduled with friendly and helpful people assisting us along the way.
The accommodations were great, the food delicious and nourishing (broiled salmon at a remote Refugio!), and the views and experience spectacular.
An unforgettable experience was watching the glacier calving at Perito Moreno. Every five or ten minutes, another building-sized block of ice came crashing down into the lake. Many of these events I was able to capture on video.
Again, thank you so much for everything, we will have memories that will last us a lifetime.

How do I successfully achieve high altitude acclimatisation? This is the question that anyone travelling to the high altitude Andean areas of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina or Colombia should be asking themselves. Successful acclimatisation will make a huge difference to your visit. It will mean you have a much safer and more enjoyable experience, whether trekking or climbing high Andean peaks. Over the past 25 years I have been up many 5,000 m plus peaks and trekked many fabulous routes in the Andes. I have suffered altitude headaches, lethargy, loss of appetite and certainly lack of breath when trying …
