About Us

Founded by an experienced team, Patagonia Huts strives to provide enjoyable and safe mountaineering adventures in Patagonia, teaching our clients to move safely and responsibly, preserving the natural and cultural assets during our trips.

We look for to be a model about new operational standards into the national parks of Chilean Patagonia:

-Operation under a long term concession into the park, developed with strong communication to all layers of the Administration Agency

-Operation of the unique Glacier Hut. Our remote basecamp designed to make use of the topography and natural resources available on site, and built using exclusively human power

– Our trips are run with the highest safety standards, considering strong knowledge of the terrain  and weather patrons,  mountain guiding experience, wilderness first aid certifications, all time radio communication, and straightforward procedures

-Introducing new eco/operation standards to the area, considering dynamic control systems of use impact on trails & sites, helping the Park Administration on flora & fauna monitoring , and highest regard of Leave No Trace (LNT) outdoor ethic.

GRACIAS…NUESTRO PRIMER POST!

La verdad, es que la muerte de Doug Tompkins, no hizo darnos cuenta de que debemos partir por dar gracias a muchos, que han permitido transformar Patagonia Huts en una realidad.

Really, the passing of Doug Tompkins makes us to realize that first of all, we need to give thanks to the people who allow turning Patagonia huts into reality.
