Through the lens: Patagonia’s secret trek

  • Through the lens: Patagonia's secret trek

The journey to get to this hidden trek in Chilean Patagonia is an adventure in its own right. The lack of trail marking means some sections of the trek requires some free-styling and guesswork, but the rewards are huge. I took this adventure with a great friend at Christmas time, needless to say it was a far cry from the warmth of my family in Australia.

This trip was intended to be four days and three nights, but due to weather the last night was cut short. Pictures and video below.

If you want to try and find this place the town you want is Coyhaique in Chile. Good luck!
