Our ultimate hiking tour to both Chile…
Our ultimate hiking tour to both Chile and Argentina was everything I had hoped. Not only were our guides, Andre and Lucio in Argentina, superb, joyful, incredibly attentive and caring, instructive, healthy and amazing athletes; they also shared so much historical and naturalist information that made the land’s flora and fauna come alive. I loved that we all wanted to be in nature hiking so much. Most importantly, the group was fantastic! We were all in the same age group and I loved so many women who could share hiking in this beautiful place together. All the elements made this the best guided travel experience I have ever been on.

Hassle free trip of a lifetime.
The staff was delightful, friendly, fun and helpful. All arrangements were taken care care of, which made the trip relaxing. From airport to airport we did not have to wonder what was happening or why there was a delay as they kept us informed and made sure we were prepared. While in Quito, free time in old town would have been nice. The tour was interesting but could have used time to wonder for an hour or two. The islands were beautiful and interesting with each one have it’s own unique qualities. Our guide answered all the questions thrown at him. He was patient, accommodating and knowledgeable. The food on the boat was good, not great. Having a snack upon returning from the excursions was appreciated and fun. The selection of non-alcoholic beverages was limited. All in all a trip of a lifetime. I would recommend MT Sobek to anyone looking for a hassle free vacation adventure.

Our Heritage

In 1969, three intrepid mountaineer-explorers, Leo Le Bon, Allen Steck, and Barry Bishop, came up with a then-radical idea: to create a company called Mountain Travel out of their incurable wanderlust for global adventure travel and their passion for sharing backcountry wilderness experiences with others. Around the same time Richard Bangs and John Yost were whitewater rafting first descents of rivers across the adventure travel globe, and created Sobek Expeditions in 1973. Together they ushered in a new way for adventure travelers to see the world actively and earned us our moniker of the Adventure Company™.
