Patagonia: the name alone gives rise to feelings of wonder and adventure. Yvon Chouinard, founder of the famous Patagonia clothing brand, perhaps summed it up best when he said the name Patagonia brings up, ’romantic visions of glaciers tumbling into fjords, jagged windswept peaks, gauchos and condors.’ We will see all that, and more.
There are few places on earth with such wild, raw beauty, and it has attracted intrepid rock climbers and mountaineers for generations. Running is a more novel approach, but it gives us a chance to get up close and personal with this majestic landscape in a different way. The trails and roads are quiet and endless, the pace of life is as relaxed as it comes, and the climate, though fierce at times, makes you feel alive as never before.
Our adventure begins with a private, chartered boat journey through the Strait of Magellan, past the southernmost tip of South America, and onward to explore newly established Kaweskar National Park – one of the most remote in Chile. Sail in comfort among rugged mountains, thundering glaciers and virgin ecosystems while spotting sea lions and whales, all the while completely removed from any sign of human civilization. Believe us, this is a next-level experience!
Afterwards, we head north towards the renowned Torres del Paine National Park for a week of running & trekking through the awe-inspiring beauty of Patagonia: enjoy a stunning mosaic of golden meadows, lush forest, brilliant glacial lakes, dramatic mountains and rushing rivers. Finish each day with a big feast, plenty of Chilean wine and a warm bed, preparing you for the next incredible day.
Between running, hiking and plenty of chances to explore the lakes and glaciers, this trip is all-action and perfect for anyone with a keen sense of adventure. You don’t have to be a trail runner to go to Patagonia with us, but we guarantee that you’ll leave as one!
