An unaided crew of four young travelers encounter dense forests, snow-capped mountains, active volcanoes and barren deserts, as they spend four months following the route of the 'Greater Patagonian Trail', the longest continual trail network in South America. As they immerse themselves in the history and culture of this extraordinary region, they discover the beauty, volatility and fragility of the Patagonian landscapes.
“El Agua, Nuestra Voz”
Watch our additional short environmental film, “El Agua, Nuestra Voz” (“The Water, Our Voice”), that features interviews from the top environmentalists across Chile. The film aims to raise awareness to the issue of water privatization in Chile and how citizens are joining together to help protect the rivers and waterways throughout the country.

The 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 network 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 began just south of Santiago, deep in the Andes, and follows us as we hop around until we conclude in Patagonia National Park. Of the 3,000+ km that we cover, we hike and pack-raft 700+ km of it, exploring in-depth the mysterious beauty of the Andes mountains.
