Patagonia has some of the world's premier hiking and trekking destinations such as Torres del Paine National Park, Los Glaciares National Park, and the Fitz Roy range near El Chalten. You'll have the unique opportinity to go hiking on top of glaciers, or hike one of the world's most famous treks, the classic "W trek" in Torres del Paine. Or, take a 9 to 14 day trip doing the absoulute best hikes and treks throughout Patagonia. Trekking in Patagonia is at relatively low altitudes, so a acclimatization to altitude isn't a major issue, but one must be prepared for extreme weather conditions even in the height of summer. Contact one of Adventure Life's Patagonia hiking specialists to plan the perfect trek personalized to your precise interests, fitness level, skill level, schedule, and budget.  

10 Stunning Treks & Hikes in Patagonia for 2024-2025

Patagonia Trekking & Travel Guide

Highlights of Hiking in Patagonia
  • Glacier trekking - test your mettle as you make your way across these massive sheets of ice that sprawl across South America.
  • Kayaking or zodiac cruising among the fjords.
  • Check out the Perito Moreno Glacier, three miles long and more than 20 stories high.
  • Witness incredible waterfalls.
  • Hike the Fitz Roy Range.
  • Eco-camping
Naturally, since hiking is at the core of these itineraries, we do encourage you to consider them only if you are up for a very active vacation. This is undoubtedly one of the best ways to experience Patagonia, considered one of the last untamed regions of the world, but these itineraries are physically demanding. We also offer other options to tour Patagonia that are also active but less physically strenuous. Consider:
