Patagonia and New Zealand - they have been described as landscapes of the imagination.

Patagonia, vast and empty, with a silence and beauty that takes the breath away. New Zealand, lush and dramatic – no wonder it is the backdrop for movies like Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia. Our Walks in the southern hemisphere are big bucket-listers and we take care of everything, so all you have to do is take a deep breath and experience these otherworldly and unspoiled lands. What a perfect way to connect with family or a group of friends on a trip that, we promise, will never be forgotten. Our routes use a thoughtful mix of road transport and time on the trail to do justice to our destination and our Walk Leaders and Managers are all experts with huge local knowledge, so we can make the absolute most of our time.

Patagonia - beyond beautiful

Fitz Roy in Patagonia with The Wayfarers

We hike in Argentinian Patagonia beneath big skies and where we are more likely to meet sheep and llama-like guanacos along the trail than other hikers. We cruise by boat to the foot of the awe-inspiring Perito Moreno Glacier, where chunks of ice regularly 'calve' from the main ice sheet and thunder into the water. We visit an original pioneer ranch where we see a demonstration of sheep shearing and there is the opportunity to take a horseback ride over the estancia, and we see a rich array of wildlife from flamingos to guanacos. And to conclude our trip, waking up in the morning in the unique Relais & Chateau Eolo Lodge, on a 10,000-acre property in the La Anita Valley, with unsurpassed views of the Patagonian Steppes stretching away into the distance, is simply unforgettable.

New Zealand - beauty and hospitality
