From the Atlantic Ocean to the Highest Andes, you will discover corners of Patagonia that only our adventurers can access.

 

The expedition introduces us into a story, as observers of the passing through of explorers and naturalists, and as witnesses of the legacy the first settlers have left behind. It allows us to connect with their descendants, who share their life history and the stories about how their families ended up settling in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. These people will open up their homes to us to share their daily life and work, and show us the most mesmerizing scenery and wonders of nature.
