Come Hike Patagonia with Us!

We’re excited to announce that we’re partnering with OneSeed and leading a private group on the Winter Patagonia hike this summer. This hike has been a bucket list hike of ours, and we’re thrilled that we’re finally making it happen! Lately, we keep hearing how ridiculously crowded it’s become, so we decided to do the trek in their winter season. I don’t know about you, but we’d much rather enjoy the scenery without the crowds.

See our guide to the W Circuit hike here.

We can’t wait to hang out with you and know we’ll have an awesome group. Check out the details below, or if you’re ready to secure your spot, fill out this form. We can’t wait to meet you!

  1. Myself and my wife often talked about hiking Patagonia, but we thought you could only hike it in dec jan feb
    due to winter in july.

    We are strong hikers but not sure if wife wants to tackle snowy conditions, any idea how intense the cold and snow might be??

    we are available the entire month of July, I’m very excited to do this without the crowds. I just did not know it was possible.

    thx
    chuck & lisa

    1. We’ve heard it can be pretty brutal, hence being prepared with O degree bags even though you’re in a lodge, but we were really fortunate. I think it’s still worth the weather to see it with no one around!
