Harriet says

There is so much more to Patagonia than Torres del Paine. We put this two-week itinerary together to provide an end-to-end Patagonia tour that includes some of the less well known areas of Patagonia too. We love the culture and landscapes of undiscovered Aysen and exploring the remote and wild fjords of Chilean Patagonia following in Darwin's path and learning about the history of the region.
