The Patagonia trip was physically challenging, the weather can be hard (impossible) to prepare for and the long travel days are a stretch. I cannot recommend the itinerary enough. The trip strikes the right balance between challenging hikes and relaxing, Guillermo kept everyone informed and safe, the rented equipment is of a high standard and the entire whirlwind was an amazing experience. I travelled solo without the single supplement and never had a problem with the accomodation, and the vegetarian food options were great.
