Chile is an awesome destination for those backpacking in South America with some of the world’s classic trekking routes through the craggy mountains of the Torres del Paine National Park. This country has so many natural wonders - volcanos, geysers, thermal pools as well as the Patagonian rainforest and wildlife. Heaps to do - snowboarding, sandboarding, surfing, fishing, even a glacier tour past giant icebergs.

"I am usually the sort of person to arrange my travel independently, but for my trip to Patagonia I made an exception. This proved to be a very wise idea indeed; without Say Hueque's expertise, reasonable pricing and astute care, I was able to make the most of my limited time in Patagonia.
