Trips with PAEX are hand-hewn, custom-built, and range from one week to a hundred days in length. We work with a limited number of clients each year. All trips include a minimum of one guide per client and place an emphasis on understanding Patagonia's physical and cultural geographies, with up-close interactions with glaciers, pristine rivers, wildlife, and authentic Patagonian ranching traditions.
No two trips are the same, but most use our iconic Aysén Glacier Trail as a base. We offer door-to-door service from Balmaceda Airport, outside Coyhaique.
