Spending your downtime gaping at another rerun of Planet Earth instead of charging feet first into the wonders of our world? May be time to mix things up. With well established OneSeed Expeditions as your host, head south to Patagonia for a ten day expedition through Torres del Paine National Park - an exotically diverse region of southern Chile, and even more importantly, nowhere near the couch.
The adventure begins at a relaxing bed and breakfast in Santiago, the nation's modern capital city. Meet the fellow trekkers, see the local urban sites, and then prepare for take off. After a short flight to Punta Arenas, a private van takes the small group to Puerto Natales and Torres, where the snow-capped peaks appear to rise from the glistening turquoise sea. You'll trek for six to twelve hours a day, stopping to soak in the scenery, spot wildlife, surmount challenging trails, and finish at comfortable hotel accommodations serving delicious meals. On the last day, relax on a catamaran ride across Pehoé Lake to witness the staggering Perito Moreno Glacier.
Touting picturesque scenery that spans all genres of geography, Torres del Paine is a singular destination. From "Cleopatra's Needles" (the famed rock towers), to massive ice field Grey's Glacier, from old growth forests to rolling golden tundras, this is the perfect environment to challenge yourself on a difficult but accessible trek. Hiking past rocky terrain cut by glacial rivers and an array of emerald and celestial blue colored lakes, we promise you this - you'll never settle for Planet Earth reruns again.
