Patagonia Chile 2017: Trip Photos
For the second trip in our project, a trek in the Patagonia region of Chile, was selected after Peru was found to be a poor choice for a trek in the month of March. We knew we couldn’t replace the magic of our projects first trip to Mt. Kilimanjaro but southern Chile was an equal for its incredible, grand beauty. Six days spent backpacking the ‘W’ trail in Torres del Paine National Park was our focus. The landscape was stunning beyond words. Each day built upon the other to provide the group with a trip of a lifetime. We were blessed with fantastic weather as twice in the previous weeks the park was closed due to heavy rains and the hazards it brought.
To add to the experience we kayaked among glacier ice-floes on Lago de Grey (Grey Lake); rode horses at a sustainable ranch at Estancia La Peninsula; explored cities of Santiago, Puerto Natales and Punta Arenas; and got up and close to the penguins on Ilsa Magdalene.
We hope you enjoy a sample of the many images taken (our Street2Peak Facebook group has a few more pictures).
