Divergences:
patagonia

 

There are few bucket lists that don’t include a breathtaking (or breath-giving) trip to picturesque Patagonia, and for obvious reason if you’ve ever so much as glimpsed at an image of the region’s otherworldly glaciers. Often revered as the pinnacle holiday for adventurers, Patagonia features colossal, crystal blue glaciers, a symphony of wildlife quite unlike anywhere else in the world, and swirling, dreamy skies that seem to extend beyond the reaches of our Earthly existence. 

 

Our next Divergence will take you there - to the southernmost tip of South America, where, nestled along the western coast of Argentina are landscapes so vast and pristine it looks animated. Join us in February 2019 to enjoy an adventure beyond your wildest imagination!

Trip Itinerary

Some dreams take longer to come true…(Update - december 2018)

Alas, so does our dream to hike Patagonia! We write with the news that we are officially postponing our February 2019 trek. We listened to your preferences and, because we were unable to secure reservations that better fit our vision, we are rescheduling for a later date. 

Let us explain. On the Chilean side of Patagonia, there is only one hotel at the entry to the park. There are multiple-day hikes that are available from that location that all return to the hotel at night. The loop we planned to take had two nights in tents at the most remote end of the trail because there are no other options for those overnights. By removing that extension of the trek, we can stay in refugios (visualize overnight rustic bed and breakfasts) for the entire trek and not have to worry about carrying food or tents. We are also looking into arranging for hotel stays with day treks as an option for those who would prefer to day-hike only.

Thank you all for your patience while we coordinate this trek to fulfill our collective dreams. We know it will be amazing and well worth the wait!

In the meantime, we are looking into other domestic treks including some right here in Wisconsin. We will tempt you with those options soon.
