Take your family to Patagonia on a family tour. Adults will love the wonderful hospitality, scenery and wildlife of this beautiful part of South America. Kids will love the freedom of wide-open spaces.
Patagonia is ideal for an active family tour for active teenagers and kids – and parents, uncles, aunties and grandparents! This is the land where almost every activity is possible – hiking, walking, glacier treks, camping, biking, rafting, and kayaking. For lovers of cold water, there is plenty of swimming too.
For the less active, our vehicle-based scenic tours are well worth doing. Excellent guides will give an insight into the history and culture of Patagonia. Or perhaps your interests tend more towards horse riding, fossil hunting, bird watching, fishing or jet boat rides.
Patagonia lends itself to self-drive holidays too, giving the family plenty of flexibility. There really is an activity to suit everyone.
For off-the-beaten-track scenery, remote mountain eco-lodges, and sheer adventure, try Aysen in Chile. Camp out under a star-filled sky – ask for places with no WiFi. Get back to basics with camping, or go for glamping, eco-domes or top-class hotels.
Torres del Paine is the ideal base for a family holiday in Patagonia. Kids can have their own specialised guides to explain how to be a cowboy. Guachos take the family horse riding and show you how to round up cattle.
Paine is perfect for day walks or multi-day trekking with camping or eco-lodges for a touch of luxury. There is plenty of the best steak, fresh home-made pasta, gourmet delights. This is family-friendly eating even for the pickiest of kids. Enjoy evenings by a fire with the very best of wine from Chile and Argentina.
Travel to Patagonia with kids, babies, toddlers and teenagers for a fabulous family holiday. Everyone will love it.
Visiting Aysen in Chile was like stepping back in time 15 or 20 years, to what Patagonia is so good at, the wilderness, stunning scenery, the isolation, and above all the warm and friendly people.

The highlight was definitely just how amazing that part of the world is - Patagonia is stunning, I loved it. In particular, I loved the Argentinian side of Patagonia around El Chalten and the hikes we did in that part of Patagonia. Of course, a lot of what will affect a hiking trip is the weather, and I have to say that we had perfect weather on the day with the best viewpoint.

Our trip was really wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and I can honestly say that there weren't any low points.
But, there were many highlights. Camp Poincenot in the woods in the snow was chilly but fun. Amazing views of Fitzroy. Our tour leader Flor was excellent as was Fernando, one of the mountain guides. The wildlife was memorable, guanacos and rhias and then later the penguin colony and elephant seals. El Pedral was magical. The food was superb and we loved it's isolated setting.
Everything was well organised. The group had just 7 people which worked well.
All the accommodation was generally very good. The camps were really good fun, good fun and really warm sleeping bags.
We took trade to local restaurants and bought the odd souvenir etc. We tried to be sensitive to environment and keep impact low.
I would recommend the tour to anyone fit enough for the treks. The uphills were longer and steeper than expected but enjoyable.
Thank you for organising the holiday for us.

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 …
