Trekking in Patagonia Testimonials

Yes – it was great.  Particularly enjoyed the hikes, cultural experiences, lodges, guide quality. Ben did a great job teaching the group high altitude techniques -breathing, rest step, hydration, etc.

This is really a very, very nice, upscale trekking experience and I really enjoyed it. Treking around the Peruvian Andes was fabulous.  Days trekking were just long enough so you could sit back and enjoy the wonderful lodge facilities every day.

Ben was a particularly effective leader. The three made a great team – Ben providing the leadership, Admil the local knowledge (which was amazingly broad) and Yosif helping with individual issues.  Admil was never at a loss when asked about local flora or fauna – if he did not know (rarely), he provided  the answer from one of his books. Ben was the go-to guy for issues with altitude and trekking. They made a great team. Admil’s English was flawless by the way.

Overall quality of the trip was fantastic.  Just enough trekking to enjoy the mtns but also have some downtime to allow for people to relax and enjoy other things.  Quality of the food and lodging first rate.  Demeanor of the guides were excellent.  Mountain lodges or peru guide super knowledgeable. No weakness.

It was fantastic. Will definitely recommend it to friends. Cannot imagine it being any better. One particularly unexpected but delightful experience was the 2 hour train ride from Aguas Calientes – the scenery was absolutely spectacular.

  • Staying Hydrated in the Backcountry

    Sometimes the harsh environment encountered in mountaineering can make even the simplest tasks difficult. Staying hydrated is a perfect example – something that is among the most banal of tasks in the lowcountry can become exceedingly complicated in a cold, snowy environment. When all available water is locked up in solid form as snow or […]
