This active family of four just returned from a custom Hikers Patagonia Adventure in Patagonia and share some of their incredible experiences:
“First of all, we enjoyed all the hiking- it was wonderful!!
Second, we loved all of our guides! Lorena in Santiago took care of us well. Chris in Patagonia Camp was good and entertaining. Ismail, Frederico in Calafate were great. Andres in El Chalten was especially good. Had a nice pace for hiking and just an easy guy to be around for 9-10 hours. His knowledge of geology was great and interesting to us.
Patagonia Camp yurts were fun, unique, warm, cozy, and loved that they were separated. El Puma, in El Chalten, was very comfortable and well situated. Loved Alta Vista in El Calafate because I wouldn't have wanted to be in town. I loved hiking from the house and riding the horses was special. Alta Vista’s meals were exceptional. I felt like each dinner was at a fine restaurant. Served with love.
Making the two hikes in Los Glaciares in El Chalten was challenging, but so rewarding. We had spectacular weather, and as I mentioned before Andres was a wonderful guide.
We definitely recommend wearing layers. If you aren't used to hiking, prepare because the rewards of making the top are spectacular.
Thank you so much!”
