Photos From Patagonia

Dave Gruss sent these photos from our guided hiking tour in Patagonia which is going on right now. Look at the awesome wood carvings in the next photo. 
Patagonia is a HUGE place and is shared by the countries of Argentina and Chile. Within Patagonia you’ll find grasslands, steppes, deserts, and the Andes Mountains, the longest continental mountain chain IN THE WORLD. The Andes mountains stretch 4,300 miles / 7,000 kilometers through seven different countries including, Venezuela, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. Our hiking tour takes place in Argentina.
We chose Argentina because the hiking is similar in style to the inn-to-inn hikes that we love so much in Europe. The food and the towns are exciting, while eccentric mountain huts and country inns color the mountain landscape with tasty refreshment and sumptuous local specialties. In the above photo, our group stops for liquid restoration at a hut with incredible views. 

Argentina is not Europe. It is a country with its own customs, colors and spin on the world, yet it shares the same blood that courses through all mountain communities across the globe. Climbing a mountain is one of the best things that a person can do in life, and Argentina is a great place to do it. It’s also a nice place to hang your hat!

Speaking of hats…Look at all those fashion-forward Ryder-Walker adventure caps. We give them to our guests, but you can order extras by emailing our office.
