South America Trekking and Hiking Reviews

5 - Excellent
Based on 875 customer reviews
Great Trip!!!
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“The trails were very well marked and easy to hike on your own. There is a clear itinerary of where you should be each night. Do not bring food, as there is an excellent and ample breakfast, lunch and dinner provided. The showers were also decent and at all the camps on the W trek and had warm water. The sleeping bags and mats were warm enough, although I did go in December, so summer season. Transfers were seamless. We had to wait for the ferry to make a second trip at the end, so a one hour thirty minutes delay, and the buses waited on us to take us back to Puerto Natales. Having everything booked took the stress out of trying to get my own sites and transportation, and meals being provided saved a lot on weight. Overall, no complaints and a great trip!!”
Great tour
5 - Excellent
  • Monica Shao
“Although we would have preferred to travel in the summer season due to the weather, everything was amazing. El Calafate has plenty of options to do and Perito Moreno Glacier was absolutely incredible and Torres del Paine in Chile really worth the visit! Both were very nice destinations. Mercedes was so kind and took care of flight changes in our arrival. Thank you!”
Stunning expedition
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“From the first to the last second, the expedition was not only carried out very professionally, but also with a great deal of passion and a remarkable mixture of excellent planning and flexibility depending on the environmental conditions. You could tell from the entire team and crew — each highly competent in their respective fields — how committed they are to their job, but also to Antarctica as a unique and most beautiful corner of the planet. Safety and environmental protection were taken seriously, at the same time there was always a lot of fun and a lot to learn (and a lot to eat & drink) on board. All in all, a breathtaking experience.”
