With it’s high price, complicated logistics, and language barriers, planning a trip to the distant Patagonia can feel extremely daunting. Many people put an eighteen day trip to the end of the world on their bucket list or Pinterest board and it haunts them for years as they wait for enough money or a free schedule. Sure, there may seem like a lot of obstacles, but when we’re talking about watching the sunrise hit the towers of Torres del Paines, we believe it’s worth it. We’re not careless, or some modern traveling hippies. Heck, we’re simply a group of social workers, marketing directors, nannies and construction workers, but we believe Patagonia’s awesomeness is accessible to anyone who wants it bad enough.
