Patagonia is absolutely immense, comprising over 400,000 square miles at South America’s sparsely populated tip. The region is home to snow-capped volcanoes and the world’s driest desert; rainforests and the southern hemisphere’s largest ice fields outside of Antarctica; flamingos and penguins. It’s no surprise, then, that Wilderness Travel offers a number of ways to explore the far reaches of this untamed realm.

In Patagonia is our signature hiking journey to both the Argentine and Chilean sides of Patagonia, but we can bring you to Patagonia in other ways! On Great Hikes and Estancias of Patagonia, you’ll hike the best trails of Argentina’s Los Glaciares National Park. Patagonia’s Wild North will bring you one of the world’s last wild places—the rugged trails of Parque Patagonia, a new national park created by legendary conservationists Doug and Kris Tompkins.
