Argentina is a country of a hundred different biomes. While traveling the sweeping planes, the frozen summits of the Andes, or the endless forests and deserts, Argentina can feel like a whole new planet to explore.
Ryder-Walker’s Patagonia: The Lakes District Trek focuses on the mountainous region of Patagonia along the border with Chile. Patagonia combines the majesty of the Himalayas with the comfort of the Alps, a stunning and precipitously vertical region where 20,000-foot mountains crash into the rolling planes and cobalt blue lakes below. The Lakes District of Patagonia is the region with the highest concentration of horizon spanning alpine lakes, which are complemented with lively tourist centers such as the city of Bariloche. Some highlights include the deep crystalline waters of the Cajon del Azul, or Blue Canyon, and the desolate wilderness of Los Arrayanes National Park.

The accommodations in the Lakes District are absolutely incredible considering the remoteness of the region, with a collection of mountain inns and nature preserves that rival even the most comfortable hotels while also providing you with instant access to the Patagonian wilderness.
