Rugged Beauty, Remoteness and Lack of People

Rugged Beauty, Remoteness and Lack of People
This couple just returned from a custom trip to Patagonia with their friends. Starting in Santiago, they worked their way down to Torres del Paine National Park for hiking and exploring the environs and then came back north to visit the rustic coastal vineyards. “Torres del Paine national park and all of Patagonia stood out the most to us during this trip because of the rugged beauty, remoteness and the lack of people. Tierra Patagonia was awesome in the true sense of the word!! The staff was extremely professional, friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs. It was an excellent stay.
