Walking Across Patagonia

In January 2012, my wife Laura and I spent a month walking across Patagonia.

We had originally intended to cross from the Chilean Pacific to Argentinian Atlantic coast on foot. We pursued this goal for about three weeks but, after some tough going and complications with a food re-supply, we shifted our plans for the final week and instead explored Torres del Paine and went kayaking.

We were supported by Primus and Rosker‘s OmniLite TiSwoop PatagoniaWalk Patagonia and Fitzroy Adventure Camp (FRAC). More information below.

Primus and Rosker

Who kindly gave us a brand new not-yet-on-the-shelves titanium multi-fuel stove – the Primus OmniLite Ti – which performed excellently.

Swoop Patagonia

These guys really opened the door for our contacts down south. They organised adventure travel holidays in Patagonia.

Walk Patagonia

A trekking company based in El Chalten who were extremely helpful to us when we arrived.

Fitzroy Adventure Camp (FRAC)

A beautiful and homely wilderness camp who offer trips and cook great food.
