Looking for help with your Patagonia trip planning?
The sharp, granite spires of Torres del Paine National Park. The windswept plains of the Argentine Patagonia. Magellanic and king penguin colonies. Hiking trails through splendid native forests. Cruises through some of the most pristine environments on the planet.
Patagonia, the vast expanse of land covering the southern regions of both Chile and Argentina, is a paradise of wild flora and fauna, ripe for a unique adventure.
But where should you go and how should you get there? What are the real “unmissables” – and what shouldn’t you spend your time on seeing? How can you escape the ever-increasing numbers of tourists travelling in Patagonia?
Why trust Worldly Adventurer for your Patagonia trip planning?
As you might have noticed on the blog, over the past years I’ve spent a lot of time exploring the four corners of Patagonia:
- In 2016, I took a one-month overlanding tour across Patagonia, exploring the vast majority of Argentine Patagonian, plus I hiked the W Trek in Torres del Paine.
- A month later, I returned and spent another month exploring some of the Carretera Austral by bus and hitchhiking, as well as taking the Navimag ferry from Puerto Montt to Puerto Chacabuco.
- In 2017, I spent five weeks in Patagonia, hiking the O Circuit in Torres del Paine, exploring Punta Arenas and the surrounding area and road tripping into Chilean Tierra del Fuego.
- In 2018, I spent two months exploring the length and breadth of Chilean and Argentine Patagonia for Moon Chile, including taking the Navimag ferry from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales, reaching Puerto Williams in the far south via boat and travelling the entire length of the Carretera Austral.
I’ve written widely about the nuts and bolts of travel in Patagonia for both Worldly Adventurer (including these travel itineraries for vacations in Patagonia) and for companies based in Chile, as well as for websites and magazines. I consider myself an expert on travel in the region.
How the Patagonia trip planning service works
Pre-conversation survey to identify your budget, timeframes and proposed destinations
Once I’ve received payment, I’ll send you a quick survey to get a sense of your budget, time restrictions and destination. This will inform the next stage of the Patagonia trip planning service.
A tailored, day-by-day travel itinerary or 30-minute Skype call*
Following the survey, I draw up a detailed itinerary for the duration of your trip, where I include day-by-day recommendations for:
Where to travel in Patagonia – the destinations that you shouldn’t miss on a trip to Patagonia, and those that you should and exactly how to undertake the task of planning a Patagonia travel itinerary.
