Topic - Patagonia

abh - on 26 Sep 2013

I am going to Patagonia with the Mrs in January for a week and would like some advice....

I would like to do as muching trekking/ exploring as possible but the Mrs. is not too keen on it being too wild/ 'uncomfortable'

At the moment the plan is to
Fly to Calafate, next day go on a Glacier trek at Perito Merino, then drive to El Chalten, stay in nice-ish place, and spend two days trekking to Cerro Torre/ FitzRoy (based in decent digs)
Spend a day driving to Torres del Paine, then have two days trekking around there, maybe with a night in the huts!
Drive back to El Calafate.

Would be keen to know other peoples experiences down there, or anything that is great to do, as an alternative, or of course general advice. The Mrs does like horse riding...

I know it can get pretty wild down there, so what kit do we need? - only walking, so will take poles etc. But assume we need to take gear for Windy weather! No (planned) camping so think the Refuges will have all the equipment, and I understand gear can be hired in Chile.

Hope this is the correct forum...

Many thanks
