Hike around the Chilean's Yosemite in North Patagonia, Chile
This valley has a striking similarity to Yosemite Valley in USA, due to its granite domes and old-growth forests. Explore La Junta valley and trek among some of the most picturesque granite peaks: Anfiteatro, Arco Iris and Trinidad Hills. This valley is also one of the world's three remaining virgin temperate rainforests; and it has astonishingly beautiful waterfalls. Trails are more than 300 years old and were used between the Argentine border and Chile's northernmost fjord, Reloncaví. According to legend Cochamó was a track once followed by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Come to do trekking in one of the most fascinating places in Patagonia Lake District, Chile. *This expeditions are priced for a group of 4, but I can accommodate 10 travelers. Get your Quote!
