Why Travel with WT?

The Absolute Best of Patagonia

We’ve created the perfect journey in Patagonia, including all of the wonders you want to experience in this epic land, with the right logistics. We’ll get you to the iconic places including Fitz Roy and Torres del Paine, hiking by day and being welcomed at boutique hotels and heritage estancias by night. And we take you to far-flung Tierra del Fuego, the legendary Beagle Channel, and colonies of penguins!

Impeccable itinerary and outstanding implementation. Every day delivered a new ‘oh my’ because of the variety of the scenery and experiences. Thanks, Wilderness Travel!

The right pacing to Truly Experience Patagonia

Patagonia is vast, and its weather is notoriously changeable—you can’t rush this trip, or you may never see the mountain views, much less truly experience its amazing parks. We include enough hiking days in Los Glaciares National Park and Torres del Paine National Park so that you get to do not only the classic hikes, but also our secret off-the-beaten-path ones. Other companies may pack the same parks into a shorter trip, but you end up spending more time in the vehicle getting between locations, rather than hiking.

Insider Access to Exclusive Accommodations

Our decades-long relationships in Patagonia give you special access to some of Patagonia’s most renowned estancias and enchanting lodges. We start at Hosteria El Pilar, a delightful inn right at the edge of Los Glaciares National Park. At century-old Estancia Helsingfors, we have world-class hiking yet see no other hikers, and at remote Estancia Lazo, a historic working ranch, our great hike starts right out the front door. We usually have sole access to each of these boutique accommodations, and you’ll be welcomed like family.

I really appreciated that each of the lodges where we stayed had stunning views. The contrasts (working estancias to hosterias to hotels) was nice. El Pilar and Helsingfors were particularly memorable.

Superb Trip Leaders and Expert Local Guides

Wilderness Travel has deep roots in Patagonia, and our Trip Leaders have decades of experience and incredible knowledge to share. You’ll be introduced to countless locals along the way and given a wonderful insider’s experience of the land and its people. Because we add additional local guides on all our hikes, we have the flexibility to adapt the hikes to prevailing conditions and offer shorter versions of the major hikes for those who want it.

Comfortable Travel

Patagonia is enormous! Travel here requires a few long drives, but we do it in comfort, with a redesigned bus that has half the seats removed, doubling your leg room. We have the same experienced (and delightful!) driver throughout the trip, and make plenty of stops for photography and wildlife spotting.

tierra del fuego: gateway to the antarctic

You wouldn’t want to miss this breathtaking austral realm where you’ll hike ancient lenga forests alive with birdsong, explore by Zodiac in the Beagle Channel, and walk through one of the northernmost penguin rookeries in the world.
