The Edge of the Earth

About patagonia

At the very southern tip of South America lies a wild, barren, and beautiful region called Patagonia. It’s home to majestic mountains pouring out arctic blue glaciers that have been carving up sheer cliffs, and leaving behind sharp mountain peaks. Patagonia has been nearly untouched by humans for decades because the arctic weather conditions make it unbearable to live in year round. Here you’ll peer at mountains originating at the ocean floor, peeking up straight out of the icy Pacific waters, making you feel like you’re hovering over The Edge of the Earth.


On this epic adventure we’re going to pick you up in Buenos Aires and fly you straight into the heart of Patagonia, to Mt Fitz Roy, where you’ll find the peaks that inspired the Patagonia brand’s logo. You’ll hike up to turquoise blue mystic lakes hoisted in the mountains, and raft through an erie desolate wilderness. We’ll watch the world’s third largest ice sheet calve icebergs into glacial waters below us at Perito Moreno Glacier, then we’ll cross from Argentina into Chile to backpack the famous five day “W” Trek in Torres Del Paine.

Patagonia is not for the faint of heart, it’s a camping adventure with challenging hikes from sea level to mountain pass and it’s so far off the beaten path that most tourists still don’t even know what Patagonia is. Go now, before the rest of the world wakes up to the savage wilderness at The Edge of the Earth.
