We’ve added extra places on our 30th anniversary charity trek in the Patagonian Andes from Argentina to Chile next year

Places on the five-day trek were all snapped up, but due to popular demand, we’ve sourced additional places.

“We’re delighted with the success of the trek and pleased to be able to offer more places,” Emily Millington, our events manager, said.

“The trek promises to be the adventure of a lifetime, taking you through some of the most breath-taking scenery in South America."

Once they’re gone, they’re gone

“Hurry up and sign up if you’d like to join us. Places are going fast and once they’re gone, they’re gone.”

The trek starts in the Lake District area of Argentina, where snow-capped mountains fringe glacial lakes, before crossing into Chile and entering a world of lush rainforest, cascading waterfalls and bubbling hot springs.

We’ve teamed up with specialist challenge event organiser Classic Tours for the trek, which takes place between 5 and 14 February 2016.

Registration costs £350 and trekkers need to raise £3,950 in sponsorship. Alternatively trekkers can pay £2,137 for the costs of the trek and pledge to raise at least £1,813. 

In return for this, all flights, accommodation, support vehicles, medical support and experienced guides are provided.

Help with every step

Our events team is on hand to guide trekkers through every step of this challenge.

“From fundraising ideas to training tips we promise to take care of all the practical arrangements - leaving you free to concentrate on walking, enjoying the breath-taking scenery and completing the challenge,” Emily added.
