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 Lake District and 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 accommodations, while we take care of the logistics every step of the way. New for 2023, check out our Patagonia National Park trekking adventure!
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).
After an inspiring day of hiking and trekking, recount your tales from the trail and recharge with a delicious dinner. 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.
Cruise Cape Horn on the new Ventus Australis, a 210-passenger expedition vessel, tailor-made for exploring the remote southern tip of South America. Designed for the extreme maneuverability needed to navigate narrow fjords and channels, the ship also features gourmet dining with an all-inclusive bar, three lounges, an open top deck, and spacious light-filled cabins.
Adventures for Your Skill Level
Our Patagonia adventures include hiking in spectacular wilderness terrain, including mountains, glacial valleys, and desert steppes. All are moderate to strenuous trips, with a Level 3 or Level 4 activity rating, and we recommend training for your adventure in advance. Patagonia is the perfect place to reach your goals and return invigorated!
