Patagonia Wilderness was a great trip. It is hard to cram so much beautiful nature in a mere 2 weeks, but this trip had a good go at it. Each hike was well planned with excellent local mountain guides. Nature itself was breath taking with each corner taken another stunning view, I felt like I should have had 4 pairs of eyes, one pair on each side of my head. Carefully read the description of the activities included on the itinerary, as some of these hikes are not for the faint of heart. They are 22km round trips in some parts on steep terrain, but the views are worth the effort!

Everything about this trip was excellent. The walking is definitely hard but unbelievable scenery. Even though we had some bad weather it all adds to the experience and the weather is so changeable in Patagonia that we had some of the best weather too-perfect sunny clear days with no wind! Camping adds a whole other aspect to the trip and thought the standard of the accommodation overall was very good. A really well thought out itinerary with enough rest days between the walks and staying at least 2 nights in each place. Oh, and the food and wine were nearly as good as the seceneary and walks. This is a trip you will never forget!
