Where to go trekking in Patagonia

You can join small group treks with local guides in each national park that you'd like to visit. You can read more about trekking in these different regions in our guide to trekking in Patagonia, or take a look at our interactive map to see the main trekking areas and some of the most notable landmarks.

Torres del Paine - In Patagonia's most famous national park you can trek to the base of mile high granite peaks - the "torres" from which the park takes its name - or get off the beaten track and explore hidden valleys. Find out more about trekking Torres del Paine

El Chalten & Fitz Roy - From the small town of El Chalten, you can walk straight out onto trails to beautiful lakes and glaciers and the best viewpoints of Mt Fitz Roy, returning to your hotel each night. You can also choose longer more challenging treks or even an expedition onto the South Patagonian Ice Cap. See more details on trekking Fitz Roy

Tierra del Fuego - This southernmost region of Patagonia is home to wild landscapes and dominating mountain ranges, including the Dientes de Navarino and the Cordillera Darwin, which make for interesting and challenging treks. It's also possible to go on day hikes starting from the outskirts of the city Ushuaia. Read more about trekking in Tierra del Fuego

The Lake District - Here you can trek among the abundant lakes, forests, and mountains, or to the top of one of the region's volcanoes. Find out more about trekking in the Lake District

We’ll work around your budget and arrange flights, transfers and buses, to create your perfect trip.


Paine & Fitz Roy

Visit the two most famous trekking destinations in Patagonia - Torres del Paine and Mount Fitz Roy. In Torres del Paine, you can hike the well-known W trek or get off the beaten track into seldom visited valleys. Either way, you'll see the mile high granite towers, after which the park is named, brilliant blue lakes and stunning glaciers. Fitz Roy stands above the small town of El Chalten, in Los Glaciares National Park. From here, you can trek straight from your hotel to the best viewpoints of Fitz Roy and the neighbouring Mt. Torre, or take on a longer trek around these mountains.

We can help you combine these two incredible destinations into one tour.



Group tours range from luxury to rugged, overland trips. They are typically for 2-3 weeks and explore all the main sites.

Great for solo travellers and those on a budget, group tours come packaged with fixed itineraries, dates, and prices, making them easy to plan around. Group sizes tend to be around 15 travellers at most and you'll really get to know each other as you make your way across Patagonia together.
