Small group adventure vacation

This trip is run by a company which specialises in only Central and South America vacations. Typically you will be sharing your experiences with between 4-20 like minded travelers (depending on the trip and how many others are booked on it) and you'll have a group leader with you. Whether you are traveling alone, with your partner or with friends its good value, and a great way to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is some flexibility and you'll have plenty of privacy. This trip will appeal to travelers of all ages who enjoy meeting new people as well as seeing new places, whilst being led by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic leader.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

This vacation takes you to some of the more remote and as yet little visited areas of Chile. We are aware that we do not want to disturb the balance of the environment nor the landscapes we visit. We visit the Queulat National Park where the entrance fees are funnelled into the conservation of local flora and fauna as well as the protection of the waterways and the glacier itself.

We stay in locally run hotels and B+Bs, built in keeping with the with the landscape and scenery, using locally sourced materials and labour carefully monitored by the CONAF the forestry commission. By doing so, we help to avoid the demand for large scale hotels in an area that is as pristine as this.

This vacation particularly appeals to an adventurous traveler, wishing to explore the natural surroundings of the region with having as little impact as possible. Most of the roads in the region are unpaved and vehicles are restricted to a reduced speed limit in order avoid erosion of the road verge, and vegetation along the routes. We employ local guides for the included and optional excursions into the National Parks who adhere to strict guidelines of the trails which visitors should stay on and educate them on the protection of the flora and fauna in the area.

The Impacts of this Trip

Our groups are always small and integrate well and sympathetically into the small communities we visit. We use small family/locally run hotels which feed their income and create employment directly into their communities - examples of these are Green Baker Lodge and Casa Ludwig. In this way the local communities, so cut off from the outside world, will gradually be introduced to the idea of receiving visitors in small numbers, without suffering a deleterious impact.
