Patagonia Trek

October 30th TBC 2019 for 17 days

Nordic Walking Highlights of Chile  

From the arid Atacama Desert in the north to the glacial landscape of Torres del Paine National Park in the south,
Chile is an incredible destination for Nordic Walking. Walk on volcanic slopes, past glistening salt lakes and
alongside remote, cactus-lined canyons. In Patagonia, where icy waters flow from dramatic mountain scenery, we
see giant glaciers and hike in the shadow of the world’s second largest ice field.
This trip includes four nights that are spent staying in refuges, situated in privileged locations inside the boundaries of
the breathtaking Torres del Paine National Park.
