PATAGONIA

Patagonia Hiking & Trekking

Patagonia is, simply put, a hikers' paradise. At the southern tip of South America (in Chile and Argentina), where the weather and climate mirror that of Northern Canada and Alaska in the Northern Hemisphere, this awe-inspiring landscape is home to a stunning sliver of the Andes Mountains, as well as deserts, steppes and grasslands. Wildland's Guided Patagonia hikes are all-inclusive opportunities to discover Patagonia's sheer granite spires, towering mountains, glaciers, lakes, rivers, wildlife and more!

Our Patagonia hiking tours are focused on Torres del Paine National Park, an invaluable conservation and wilderness gem in Chile; and Parque Patagonia, a vast wilderness preserved through private conservation funding and donated as a national park to the Chilean Government. Our Patagonia trekking tours in Torres del Paine are Inn to Inn hikes for the most part, but the Circuit Trek also includes one night of portered camping.

More About Patagonia Hiking Vacations


Why a Patagonia Hiking Trip?

Patagonia is in many ways the South American equivalent of Alaska - it's a region characterized by vast wilderness; harsh winters; stunning, short summers; and breathtaking, extremely photogenic mountain scenery. Patagonia's iconic landmarks are the soaring granite towers in Torres del Paine National Park in Chile and in Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina. Guided Patagonia hiking trips are wonderous adventures with glaciers, alpine lakes, waterfalls, unique wildlife, and cozy backcountry accommodations in the region's "refugios." Bottom line is if you like to hike and travel, Patagonia is a must-visit destination to add to your "Life List!"


The Wildland Hiking Experience

Our international trekking vacations are all-inclusive hiking packages that allow you to explore regions around the world without having to worry about many of the difficult logistics of international travel. We pick you up at the regional airport, provide lodging for the duration of the trek, and drop you back off at the airport on the final day. (If you'd like extra days in Patagonia before or after your trip, we're happy to help you set that up as well.) We hand-pick unforgettable hiking routes and provide expert trekking guides with in-depth local knowledge and expertise. You can expect wonderful meals, fantastic accommodations that put you right in the action, and top-notch customer service!



Torres del Paine or Parque Patagonia?

One question we receive relatively often from our Patagonia trekking guests is whether to hike Torres del Paine National Park or join us in Parque Patagonia. The answer is pretty straight forward - are you looking to have an iconic and relatively comfortable national park experience, or a pretty hardcore wilderness experience?

In Torres del Paine, we (for the most part) stay in Patagonia's famous refugios, which are backcountry lodges with dorm-style sleeping, bathrooms, hot meals...etc. Trips in Torres del Paine National Park include the Torres del Paine W Trek, Torres del Paine Circuit, and our Lodge-based Patagonia Hiking Tour (which stays in a cozy lodge outside the Park but in a perfect location).

Parque Patagonia, on the other hand, is a massive, recently-designated national park that is mostly deep wilderness and requires backpacking and camping. Not to worry though! The Wildland team has been operating guided backpacking trips since 2005 and are one of the world's premier backpacking guide companies. We know how to make a trip comfortable, exciting and enriching. We offer one trip in Parque Patagonia right now, which is our Parque Patagonia Discovery Trek. Regardless which Patagonia trekking tour you choose, one thing's for sure - it's going to be an unforgettable adventure!



Hike Patagonia with or without a Guide?

Patagonia hiking trips can be done with a guide company or on your own. Patagonia hiking companies like Wildland provide a variety of packages from very, very basic options to premier tours like Wildland's which are all-inclusive. The value points of traveling with Wildland Trekking are many: the confidence and peace of mind that comes from traveling with a proven, premier trekking company; reservations, permits, and logistics are taken care of for you; worry-free adventure travel as you're accompanied by expert, highly trained guides; exceptional meals and gear; in-depth knowledge of the local area, flora, fauna...etc. and more!


When to Hike in Patagonia

Being in the Southern Hemisphere, Chile has opposite seasons to North America and Europe. That makes their summer months December through February, and shoulder season months October-November and March-April. We heartily recommend trekking in Patagonia in the shoulder months if possible, as the crowds are much lighter than summertime, although the weather can certainly be a bit more spicey. Average temperatures and precipitation in Torres del Paine National Park during these months are detailed in this table:

Month Hi Low Precip
October 51° F (11° C) 37° F (3° C) 5 in
November 55° F (13° C) 40° F (4° C) 5.6 in
December 57° F (14° C) 42° F (6° C) 7.2 in
January 59° F (15° C) 44° F (7° C) 5.1 in
February 58° F (14° C) 43° F (6° C) 3.8 in
March 55° F (13° C) 41° F (5° C) 4.9 in
April 50° F (10° C) 38° F (3° C) 5.8 in
