Patagonia Adventure Tours

Choose from our range of incredible active adventures in Patagonia, all expertly guided and carefully designed for an unforgettable vacation.

The MT Sobek Experience

MT Sobek pioneered Patagonia adventure tours with our first commercial Patagonia trekking trip in the 1970s. Today we offer a range of classic hiking adventures that showcase the best of Patagonia, from Argentina’s Los Glaciares National Park to Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park and the fabled W Route—one of the world’s top 10 treks—plus expedition cruising around Cape Horn. Along the way, you’ll enjoy an immersive experience as you explore hidden places and meet local people. We also make sure that you eat great food and sleep well in comfortable lodgings, while we take care of the logistics every step of the way.

Expert Guides

Our hiking and cruising adventures in Patagonia are guided by local professional guides, who are highly trained in safety procedures and follow Leave No Trace principles. As well as being fun and friendly, they’ll give you an immersive, insider experience—both on and off the beaten path. Many are so popular that people return to hike with them year after year!

On the Trail

There is nothing better than being out on the trail in Torres del Paine or Los Glaciares, feeling the breeze on your face and the rush of a spectacular view. Hiking days generally start early, after breakfast, and cover around 5 to 15 miles per day. Some days may include steep mountain paths, but there are plenty of rest stops on the way—plus a hearty lunch and dinner (per your itinerary).

Then, slumber in a range of accommodations that match your chosen adventure—from luxury lodges and boutique hotels to deluxe wilderness camping. We always aim to pick unique and characterful accommodations that make your trip special.

Hike Chile’s untamed wilderness on a fully supported “O” Circuit trek or explore the beauty of Torres del Paine National Park at your own pace.

Choose Your Adventure

There are three main ways to explore Patagonia: by foot on a hiking adventure; on a multi-adventure with hiking, kayaking, and horseback riding; or on a small-ship cruise (with a hiking option). Some adventures are in Chile or Argentina, while others are in both.

Choose Your Style

As well as scheduled group departures, we can also accommodate private groups or create fully customized adventures. Call us on 800-974-0300 to find out more about our custom and private adventures.

Choose Your Dates

The best time to visit Patagonia is from December to March, which is summer in the southern hemisphere. Although gusty Patagonian winds can pick up at any time, this is when the weather is mildest with mostly blue skies. Temperatures are generally cooler in November and April, but the former brings spring flowers and the latter is lovely for fall foliage.
