Surreal clouds over Lago Nordenskjöld. These formations are rare to spot elsewhere in the world but are pretty common to see down in Patagonia. It’s unique weather patterns create these spectacles in the sky. We don’t mind a bit of cloud, especially when they look like these.

Las Torres, the grand finale of the W Trek. 
This day was one of the most physic
Las Torres, the grand finale of the W Trek. This day was one of the most physically tough experiences Pedro and I have ever put ourselves through. Day 3 on the W promises a chill day, making your way to your next camp from which you would hike to Torres on the morning of day 4. We set off with our packs around 8am to perfect weather. We walked until we hit camp Cuernos where we ran into our trail buddies. We all chatted for almost an hour until I went to go check the weather for the next day. Clouds. It was around 11:45 at this point and we had a decision to make, do we hike like we’ve never hiked before to make it to Torres while the weather was perfect or leave it till the next day and risk not seeing them. We knew that wasn’t an option so we decided to attempt two days worth of hiking in one. The path to the view point at Torres closes at 4pm so we had 4hrs to complete a normally 7hr hike and we would have to do it most of the way with our packs. The trek was hard but we were determined. We were making pace the whole way, enjoying the intensity of the trek. It wasn’t until we reached the pass up to Chileno that we hit breaking point. We were in such an intense state we didn’t even realize how low our blood sugar was. Onward we marched. We dropped our packs at Chileno and practically ran up to the check point for the lookout. We just made it, crossing at 3:45pm, exactly 4 hrs from when we had started hiking. We felt a rush of relief but we had to keep going. We still had the intense climb to the top over large rocks with a trail that is easy to lose. At the top Las Torres were lit up by the late afternoon sun, the turquoise lake below them sparkling. We were completely ecstatic and slightly in shock at what we had accomplished. We sat in the last of the sunlight munching on our very late lunch reveling in our personal achievement. Once the sun headed behind the mountains we set off down to make it back to camp. We continued with our packs for another 2.5hrs down to Central. By far one of the hardest days we have had on our trip so far it was also one of the most rewarding. Thank you Torres del Paine for the most amazing trekking experience ✨

Not a bad view when you’re down at the river collecting some water. This suspension bridge was one of many we crossed during our hike in Torres del Pain but the backdrop at this one was particularly stunning. It was the final landmark before arriving at our campsite for night number two, Italiano. Such a beautiful place to call home for a night.

The cloud formations in Patagonia are some of the craziest and most beautiful we’ve ever seen. This ‘tablecloth’ cloud looks as though it is falling off the side of the mountains. Cascading down as a tablecloth does from a table. While some of these cloud formations are rare to see around the world they are pretty common down here in Patagonia ✨

Day one of the W Trek took us up to Glacier Grey. Part of the Patagonian Ice Field this glacier stretches as far as the eye can see. But, despite that, it is one of the many glaciers around the world that is constantly shrinking. A stark reminder of the effects of climate change. Being surrounded by so much breathtaking nature really hit home how much of a negative effect humans are having on this magnificent planet of ours. There are signs all over Torres del Paine stating to take your trash with you when you leave and yet you still you see little bits of plastic left behind. A careless act which is completely unnecessary. We all really need to learn to treat our planet with more respect because, for now, it’s the only home we have. Pedro and I certainly aren’t perfect. We lived a life riddled with wastefulness while in New York. So, we have promised ourselves that when we settle in our next home, we will live a much more green and sustainable lifestyle. Attempting, as best we can, to lessen our negative impact on the planet.

Admiring the unreal scenery with our trail buddies. One of our favorite things about exploring Patagonia was getting to meet some amazing people along the way. As we were all there for the same thing, going out and enjoying the great outdoors, we immediately found we had a lot in common. We loved our time on the trails with our friends, sharing stories and making new amazing memories together. We were especially excited to see our Fairy Trail Godmother @followtherobyn while in Torres del Paine. She has shared with us so much invaluable knowledge, pro-tips and made us feel like we can accomplish anything we put our minds to. Thank you Robyn! 💕

Walking into the valley. We had the most amazing four days in Torres del Paine National Park doing the W Trek. We can’t wait to share all the beautiful places we got to see. It truly was a once in a lifetime experience that we won’t ever forget.

The Perito Moreno Glacier really is a sight to behold. Reaching over 70m tall it is impossible to capture the presence of it on camera. We were lucky and had perfect weather, something that only happens 65 days of the year. This glacier is unique in that it is in a state of equilibrium. While most other glaciers are retreating due to global warming this one is growing just as fast as it is shrinking. Snow compacts into ice at the top of the glacier in the Patagonian Ice Field and then the ice at the front falls off. A true sight to behold. The massive crashing sound it makes as the ice hits the water is incredible. The chunks you see falling are often larger than a truck, made of ice that is over 400 years old. Pretty crazy stuff nature!!

Majestic Mountains. While it’s always nice to have a clear view of the peaks there’s nothing like a few clouds to make the view even more dramatic ☁️

The spectacular Mt. Fitz Roy at Sunrise. We woke up at 3am to hike up and catch this insane light phenomenon. As the sun rises over the horizon the sun beams reflect off the mountain peaks, lighting them up in shades of orange and red. We were so lucky to have such a clear view as this range is notorious for being hard to see, often covered by a sea of clouds. It really was worth the early morning, hiking in the dark and almost freezing at the view point. This is by far the most beautiful sunrise we have ever witnessed. Argentina, you continue to shock and surprise us in the best ways.

WE ARE BACK ONLINE. We have had the most amazing week exploring the mountains surrounding the small Argentinian towns of El Calafate and El Chaltén. Our day with Mt. Fitz Roy was by far the highlight for us. This dramatic mountain is the inspiration for the Patagonia logo as the founder was so inspired by this mountains presence.

Two little mountain goats in the making. We are both hikers but neither of us have done as much intense hiking as we have this trip and we can’t get enough! Thinking our future travels are going to be much more mountain focused. Nepal we are looking at you! 👀

In the depths of the woods. Love that the hikes in Bariloche take you through all kinds of terrains. Everything from woods to rocks to snow.

The crystal clear waters of Lagoa Nahuel Haupi. These lakes sit in the valleys once carved out by great glaciers. They are so pristine, a perfect transparent turquoise. Almost impossible to capture how striking it is.

A lake made of glass. Llao Llao you’re a stunner. If you find yourself in Bariloche for a day this is a must do. So lucky to have spent a whole week in this beautiful place. Tomorrow we move on again, Puerto Varas, Chile, here we come!
