Things to consider

  • Do you want to walk well-trodden trails through the highlights, or to explore off the beaten track?
  • Take a group tour, or do self-guided or private trekking?
  • Would you prefer to return to a comfy bed each night, or do some multi-day trekking, staying in refugios or camping under the stars?

Where can I hike in Patagonia?

Where to go trekking in Patagonia

Torres del Paine - Patagonia's most famous national park you, with mile-high granite peaks and world-famous multi-day trekking

El Chalten & Fitz Roy - Walk straight out of your hotel onto trails to beautiful lakes, glaciers and viewpoints of Mt Fitz Roy. You can also choose longer more challenging treks or even an expedition onto the South Patagonian Ice Cap. 

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.

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.

A great way to experience the highlights of Patagonia's iconic hiking trails with the support and camaraderie of a group and guide, and the flexibility to add in extra hikes and excursions if you want to cram in as much as possible!

Group trekking tours in Patagonia

Patagonia is a hiker's paradise. Whether you're looking to see the highlights on the famous W Trek or go off the beaten track somewhere more remote, there are group trekking trips in every region of Patagonia.

Most group trekking 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 discover Patagonia's scenery together.

Self-guided and private hiking

If you have a little more experience hiking and like the sound of exploring on your own schedule, there are lots of trails which you can explore either independently or with a private guide. These range from multi-day hikes to day hikes from a base, and often mean you can get a little off the beaten track.

For those for whom hiking is a passion, ask us about linking together hikes in a few different destinations. Your itinerary could combine treks through rainforest, over the ice cap, climbing mountains, traversing steppe and skirting lakes and volcanoes in the lake district.

My advice is GO! It was really incredible. I spent 2 weeks in total in Patagonia, but if you have the time then spend longer. Read the full review
