• Patagonia's most remote and challenging trek.

  • See Fitz Roy and Los Glaciares National Park away from crowds, from unique view points.

  • Take full part as a member of an expedition team in tough conditions.

  • Expert guides lead the group to one of the world's most beautiful and pristine environments.

I've never seen anywhere quite like it. When it's clear, the scenery is beyond anything I could have imagined, like being an Arctic explorer.

There are moments when you have to battle the elements and you realise just what a remote place you are in. The guides were terrific and I always felt safe. One of the best things I've even done in my life.
