Hidden Patagonia Family Adventure

Incredible activities, wonderful people and nature on an epic scale. That's why we've taken our families to Patagonia, and why we'd love to help you take yours.

On this always-active lap around Chile's greatest lake, you can explore on horseback and on foot, by kayak and by bike, in a raft and in crampons. You have your own 4x4, beautiful accommodation and ample downtime to sit back and soak in the enormity of Patagonia together.
