On this superb trekking holiday in Patagonia, Chile we explore the very best of the region's vast wilderness, huge glaciers and awe-inspiring granite peaks, the most famous of which are the Torres del Paine and Cerro Fitz Roy; our popular walking holiday accesses all of the best viewpoints, without the need for sustained multi-day trekking or backpacking. Throughout the trip, we make use of comfortable fixed camps with excellent facilities, including hot showers. We begin our adventure with a 6-day exploration of the Paine region in South America's most impressive national park, including excursions to Lago Grey and Lago Pehoe and day-walks up to the base of the majestic rock towers. Transferring to Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park, we stop-off at the unmissable and extremely impressive Perito Moreno Glacier. Then, 3 days of trekking will enable us to seek out the best views of Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. This is your chance to experience some of the world's most dramatic geography in one of the wildest and most spectacular corners of the earth.
