“Unbounded” is an adventure-travel documentary following a young, unaided crew of four as they hike and pack-raft for four months into the infinite region known as Patagonia. The crew’s journey is based along the “Greater Patagonian Trail”(see below), a relatively unknown route that is now the longest continual trail network in South America. The adventure takes the crew through dense forests, snow-capped mountains, active volcanoes, barren deserts and everything in-between. The film focuses on discovering the indescribable factors of the region, learning the history and culture of the people living amongst the Andes, and bringing to light the incredible beauty of the area – all in an effort to help raise awareness of the need to preserve this untamed, but delicate environment. A portion of the film's proceeds will go towards environmental organizations in Chile to help protect and maintain the land and rivers of this unique part of the world.

Robyn is a travel enthusiast and linguist from the United Kingdom. She has lived in countries all over the world and has extensive experience backpacking through Europe and North America. Fluent in Spanish, Robyn will act as translator during the expedition, to help communicate with the locals and gain a better understanding of Patagonia.
Garrett is the director, cinematographer, and the visionary behind Unbounded. He will be traveling as a part of the crew to film their experiences on the trail and the raw beauty of the Patagonian Andes. His mission is to document this region like it has never been seen before and help protect Patagonia from outside industries through the creation of Unbounded.
Anthony is an avid adventurer, snowboarder, hiker, climber and loves anything involving the outdoors. He currently works as an expeditions coordinator in Massachusetts and is always searching for his next adventure. He has been looking for an opportunity to go back to Patagonia after he visited years ago and is extremely excited to bring his wilderness skills to the unpredictable conditions of the region.
Aljoscha is a world traveler and backpacker from Germany who also has experience in the film industry. His adventures constantly take him deep into the wilderness and he is always seeking out the unexplored to learn more about not only the world, but also himself. His experience with photography and film production will help the crew document this adventure and share Patagonia with the world.
GREATER PATAGONIAN TRAIL
'Greater Patagonia' is a term coined by Jan Dudeck to describe the trail he is currently blazing in Chile around and through Patagonia. It is currently the longest continual trail in South America and follows a combination of old farm roads, horse trails, and footpaths. Upon its eventual completion, the Greater Patagonian Trail will lead right to the most southern point of South America.
The trail is titled the Greater Patagonian Trail because a majority of the path is not actually located within the technical boundaries of Patagonia. Our journey begins just south of Santiago, deep in the Andes, and follows us as we hop around until we finally make it within the borders of Patagonia. Of the 2,000+ km that we cover, we hike and pack-raft roughly 700 km of it, exploring in depth the mysterious beauty of the Andes mountains.
