Introduction

Patagonia is land of granite & ice. At this austral land the climate and therefore, the flora & fauna, vary from one geographical zone to the other, making this an extensive region of a unique ecosystem, of great contrast and nature characterized by hostile weather. This diversity makes this program specially varied. We will explore a unique world, mighty glaciers, fjords, raging rivers and turquoise lakes.
We will go to the heart of Patagonia, into the wild region around Lake General Carrera. Here the approach to the great San Rafael Glacier is one of the numerous highlights of our tour. We will navigate the channels and fjords of the Pacific coast near the mythic bay town Caleta Tortel, where the glaciers of the great Southern Ice Field flow to the sea. A variety of experiences and encounters with the local population as well as the culture of the country, complete this itinerary.
The easy hikes included in the program do not require specific training, physical condition or endurance above the average. The program has been designed for active and versatile nature & culture lovers.
Join the SPONDYLUS team on a new and incomparable trip and let yourself be fascinated by the magic in the heart of Patagonia.
