• Self-guided Paine W Trek.

  • Flexible itinerary with all logistics taken care of - including now essential Paine W reservations.

  • Perito Moreno glacier day tour.

  • Fitzroy and Los Glaciares national park in Argentina and Torres del Paine National Park in Chile.

  • Patagonian wildlife - guanacos, condors, rheas and more.

It was a FABULOUS trip – so THANK YOU! All the bookings, guides and transport that ANDEAN set up worked out very well for us and made for a great trip. For me the highlights of the trip were seeing the incredible landscapes of Patagonia, Perito Moreno glacier, the beautiful hikes to Lago del Torre and Fitzroy in Los Glacieres, and completing the self-guided Torres del Paine W trek with high points of Frances Valley and the Torres.

Everything you set up worked out very well for us - having 2 nights at Refugio Chileno was super as that gave us more options to get up to the Torres which we saw very well in between snow showers. I would not have wanted to walk up to the Torres on the same day as getting to another hut.

We also had a great time at Perito Moreno and at El Chalten where we did two 25km hikes and got great views of the Fitzroy range. I’m glad to have done all that before the Torres del Paine - would not want to have missed that! I really liked the town of El Chalten and the hikes there were a bit easier and absolutely beautiful.

This was truly a life-changing wonderful trip!
