Patagonia Expedition To The End Of The World Expedition
The Patagonia Expedition to the end of the end of the World is a unique challenging expedition that will appeal to adventure-minded individuals who want to experience the raw power of nature and physical and mental challenge in this stunning environment.
Patagonia is a unique and challenging part of the World. It is stunning but at the same time very challenging due to the remoteness and weather. We conducted trips to Patagonia during 2013 and 2014 and we are now aiming to do the ultimate Patagonia Expedition in 2017. The expedition will link three iconic Patagonia locations.
Phase 1 10 day training Expedition in Iceland
Phase 2 will be a 10 day crossing of the Patagonia Ice Cap
Phase 3 will be a 8 day circuit of Torres Del Paine
Phase 4 will be a circuit of the little visited Dientes de Navarino on Navarino Island at the end of the World overlooking Cape Horn
In Patagonia we will link these challenging treks together by mountain biking and by boat in order to make one continuous journey north to south.
This is a 50 day Expedition which will be physically and mentally challenging with periods of extreme weather more than possible.
We are seeking just eight-ten people for this unique and challenging expedition, if we are over subscribed as we normally are, we potentially could run with sixteen people split into to groups of eight.
We will be camping for the vast majority of this expedition but there will be some nights where we take advantage of local bunkhouses and lodges to regroup, dry kit and get a good wash etc.
