Kendra's Trip:9-Day Torres del Paine Circuit
Kendra's Trip Date:
30th Nov - 9th Dec 2021
What was your most memorable moment?
The most memorable moments outside of all of the amazing views were the evenings hanging out at the camps with our guide and porters having a few beers. There were some languages barriers for some of the porters but it was still so much fun. Got to learn a lot about the culture and life of people who lived here and it was the best.

How was your experience getting to and from Chile/Argentina?
Getting to Chile was a little nerve wracking because of the changing covid situation, but the arrival in Chile was ever easy and everything worked well. Departure is still on going but I was able to find a local place in Punta Arenas for a PCR test to get back to the US
How did it feel to be one of the first travellers to visit Patagonia after the pandemic?
It was great. On the O circuit we ran only 4 other people going through so it was almost a private experience. We ran into more people (mostly Chileans) on the rest of the hike. Despite Covid it felt very safe and easy to get to.
Tell us about EcoCamp
Great and lovely location. I had one of the most amazing massages there and all staff were friendly.
Tell us about the Trekking
Pablo (Brujo) was by far the best guide we could have gotten. He knew so much about the park and shared all of that knowledge with us. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a good experience. The porters were also amazing and so accommodating. 100% would recommend.
Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Patagonia?
Tape your feet to prevent the blisters.
How helpful was the information we shared with you, in your Adventure Planner, before your trip? Such as ‘Getting to Patagonia’ and ‘What to wear in Patagonia’. Was there anything missing?
All documents were good! For covid times might e helpful to provide locations for covid tests in Punta arenas and Porto Natales.
