      About this trip

      One of the best times to enjoy hiking in Patagonia is in March. On this 8-day, all-inclusive adventure, we will enjoy hiking in one of the most beautiful regions on the globe. Patagonia covers both Argentina and Chile. This adventure will include hiking on the Chilean side, home to the world famous, Torres Del Paine National Park. 

      Please plan on unpredictable weather and please note the itinerary is subject to change with the weather. Please plan on wind, rain and cooler temperatures in Patagonia. 

      Packing List


      • Layers: long sleeve, short sleeve, and a warm fleece. The seasons are opposite of us so it will be their summer, but it still gets chilly down south. The key to surviving Patagonia’s notoriously unpredictable weather is layering. 
      • Light down jacket
      • 1 or 2 pairs of trekking pants
      • Yoga pants are my favorite hiking outfit. They’re stretchy, very light, pack small, and dry very quickly.
      • Hiking socks. I recommend packing wool socks or Patagonia. They don’t absorb odors, dry quickly, are very durable, and help to prevent blisters.
      • 1 rain pant and rain jacket
      • 1 synthetic lightweight jacket that I can hike with if it gets cool but not cold
      • 1 down jacket
      • 1 pair of flip flops or slippers for walking around
      • Underwear
      • Bra and sports bra
      • 2 hats (sun hat + beanie)
      • 1 buff / facemask
      • Sunglasses      
      • Comfortable clothes such as yoga pants. We will not be going anywhere fancy and people tend to just wear casual, comfortable clothes in Patagonia.
      • 1 nice outfit if you wish for dinner
      • Bathing suit
      • Pajamas
      • Compression socks for the plane


      • Toothpaste and toothbrush
      • Shampoo and condition if you choose
      • Deodorant
      • Face cream and sunscreen
      • Nail clippers and file
      • Tweezers
      • Brush
      • Chap stick
      • Medications-Prescriptions
      • OTC medications
      • Medical Kit that includes ibuprofen, paracetamol, plasters, a bandage for sprains, arnica cream, blister plasters, cream for insect bites and stings, rehydration sachets, hydrocortisone cream and allergy tablets.
      • Hand sanitizer
      • Wipes
      • Toilet paper/ tissues for hiking. Not all bathrooms have toilet paper.
      • Hair ties
      • Anti chaffing cream if you are prone to chaffing.


      • Trekking poles- we will provide for you.
      • Power bank/ for charging up your mobile phone.
      • It’s also essential to have an adapter(which has both two rounded and two flat pin settings as some places in Argentina have the latter, while Chile has the former: Type C (Chile) and Type C and I (Argentina). You can order one off Amazon.
      • Copy of passport and of course, your actual passport. Make sure your passport is valid for 6 months after your trip date.
      • Hydration pack/ day pack. For day hikes you’ll need a small and comfortable day pack to carry only essentials, snacks, and water. Osprey packs are great. You want a bladder that can hold plenty of water for the day you are hiking over 13 miles. The rest of the days, you will be fine with a water bottle.
      • Hiking shoes with ankle support. Never go on a long-distance trail with brand-new hiking boots; trust me, it’s a recipe for disaster (and fierce blisters!). Break them in with a number of shorter hikes beforehand! Hiking shoes are the most important item on your Patagonia packing list. You’ll spend most of the day wearing them. Make sure your shoes are waterproof, breathable, have good grip – sometimes you walk on muddy slippery terrain, it good – you have some space to wiggle your toes,  and good quality – won’t fall apart after one hike.
      • In addition to my hiking boots, I’ve recently invested in a pair of Teva sandals. Not only are they incredibly comfortable and ideal for walking around.
      • Pack of cards
      • Reading material
      • Travel insurance for Patagonia. This is mandatory. We recommend World Nomads or Allianz. Please bring a copy of the policy for your reference.
      • Neck bag. I’d highly recommend packing a neck wallet for Patagonia to carry your documents, money, and phone. We always keep our documents and credit cards in our neck bags not only hiking but on long bus/train journeys or when flying.
      • Debit card, credit card and cash ($100 or so). You can take out money from the ATM when you arrive.
      • Small bills for personal tipping.
      • Reusable Water Bottle. To save money and to eliminate waste while traveling, pack a good-quality, reusable water bottle.
      • Vaccine cards
      • Download the XE app on your phone to know the conversion for the money.
      • Pen for customs forms and it's always good to have a pen.
      • Headphones
      • Ear plugs
      • Eye mask
      • A few plastic bags. This might seem random but having one or two plastic bags actually comes in handy while traveling. If you have a wet bathing suit or dirty clothes, it’s much more convenient to store them in a plastic bag until you reach your next destination.
      • A bag for dirty clothes

      This was one of the best things I ever could have signed up for! Daily yoga and hiking is the best combination. Amber, is an amazing chef and every time you walk into the retreat home it smells of something delicious! Drew, is full of Utah knowledge and is so efficient. He was great leading the group on hikes and making sure everyone's needs are met. Allison, is one of the best yoga instructors I've ever had. (I've been practicing yoga for 8 years) she caters class to what folks need and create a really comfortable environment. Allison, Drew, and Amber make a great team and really make sure people are enjoying themselves and all three go above and beyond! I will definitely be signing up for another retreat someday!!

      First time traveling alone. Met the most amazing group of people. Drew was an excellent guide, Allison was a great yoga instructor and the food was absolutely amazing and delicious. They really made my stay perfect. The weather was unseasonably cold but the snow topped mountains were absolutely gorgeous.

      Amazing trip with everything taken care of and curated by the wonderful Amy and Brian! Great mix of cultural experiences, beautiful locations and interesting activities.

      Our trip in Tuscany was fantastic. Walker Wellness owners Amy and Brian had set us up with our own group villa. The home was among beautiful rolling hills and totally private. Our group of just 8 people was the perfect amount for dining and traveling together. We had meals prepared for us by private chefs and one dinner was a hands on preparation from scratch of ravioli and pasta. It was delicious. The private van driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. The towns we visited were mostly from the mid-evil era and so interesting. We went to Florence one day to visit the museum that housed the statue of David. It is amazing to see in person. We had a private tour of a family ran winery which included wine tasting and meal which was one of the best during our 10 days in Italy. I would highly recommend Walker Wellness Retreats for any vacations plans you may have. They have traveled the world and know the best sites. Thanks for our memories.
