Patagonia Exploring

Moun­tain Mad­ness was invit­ed to attend the first ever Adven­ture Trav­el Week” offered by the Adven­ture Trav­el Trade Asso­ci­a­tion host­ed in the Mag­el­lanes region of Chile. We are excit­ed to refine our trek in Patag­o­nia and take advan­tage of the stun­ning adven­tures the region has to offer. The trip is essen­tial­ly a ten day tour of the best that the region has to offer in regards to adven­ture tourism. With an array of trav­el com­pa­nies and a hand­ful of trav­el writ­ers, the group is trav­el­ling through­out the region par­tic­i­pat­ing in dif­fer­ent expe­ri­ences with the inten­tion of draw­ing com­pa­nies to the area.

I just returned from a 3 day tour to the Par­que Tor­res Del Paine where we were able to expe­ri­ence the spec­tac­u­lar tow­ers of the Paine Mas­sif, boat up Lago Grey to see the the giant flow of the Grey Glac­i­er, and late-sea­son skiing.

As a moun­tain guide, it is often hard to release the reins and allow oth­ers to take con­trol, but hav­ing a chance to meet some of Moun­tain Mad­ness’s part­ners in the region and do some spec­tac­u­lar guid­ed sea kayak­ing up Lago Grey proved to be a one of a kind expe­ri­ence. This jour­ney will con­tin­ue with vis­its to two oth­er pop­u­lar adven­ture trav­el areas in the south­ern region. So stay tuned!
