Trekking among breathtaking peaks on the edge of the Continental Ice Cap
An adventurous two-part trek in Patagonia, the most southerly region of Argentina and Chile, where the scenery is dramatic and the trekking world-renowned.
As well as spending time in the Torres del Paine National Park, hiking to the base of the Towers of Paine and close to the Grey Glacier, we also visit the spectacular Moreno Glacier and pass the beautiful, glittering lakes of southern Argentina and Chile.
All this is a precursor to our week trekking through the stunning Fitzroy region, visiting Fitzroy and Cerro Torre Base Camps with views of the Continental Ice Cap that lies just beyond the range.
What makes this trip responsible?
We use several family owned lodges and hosterias during this trip which helps to keep money in the local community. At these properties locally sourced food is served wherever possible. When hiking we stick to marked trails to reduce our impact on the local environment and we camp in the designated grounds regulated by each National Park. At campgrounds (and throughout the trip) we employ a ‘leave no trace’ policy in regard to litter - everything taken into the park is taken out to preserve the local environment and we recycle wherever possible on the trip. Entrance fees are included for Los Glaciares and Torres del Paine National Parks which goes towards supporting conservation efforts in the area.
