We had a number of highlights: seeing pumas in Torres del Paine- the pumas were a bit of a distance away and had their backs to us for most of the sighting!
Overall, the whole trip was extremely well-organised and delivered.

The organisation and the food were excellent – easily the best I have had on a trek. The food was both good to eat and plentiful. The cook at the second camp was particularly good and his baked salmon dish was the best meal of the trip – better than anything the restaurants produced.
Difficult to pick out one particular highlight as we had amazing views of Fitzroy, Paine, and Ushuaia. The whole trip was wonderful, but if there has to be one particular highlight, I would probably select the morning spent on the Beagle Channel.

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.

Larry and Gillian are coming to the end of their month of travelling with Andean Trails in Patagonia. We put together a tour designed to take them off-the-beaten-track – read the first instalment in their blog – covering Santiago and Aysen and remote border crossings. Once in Argentina, Gillian and Larry trekked to the base of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre, and took a day tour to Perito Moreno. They then set off for Torres del Paine on a self-guided trek. Their tour has ended with a few days in Ushuaia and a flight out from Buenos Aires. Check their progress below …
