EXPEDITIONS IN AND FOR THE WILD

We need wild places, and wild places need us.

 

In Patagonia’s most remote landscapes, we walk and remember that the spirit of wilderness is vital to our shared future.

 
 

We’re rooted in the Aysén region of Patagonia, the wildest place we know.  This rugged, glaciated landscape is now home to Chile’s newest national parks.

Our far-flung Patagonian explorations inspire and educate, building communities of adventurers, activists and artists along the way. We travel light and seek out challenging terrain, living in the mountains through all of their moods.

Chulengo: our backstory

What's in a name? A century ago, millions of guanacos (a llama-like camelid) and their young, locally known as chulengos, roamed Patagonia. Expanding sheep ranching pushed these native foragers out of prime grasslands, and their population shrank drastically. In Patagonia National Park, the spiritual launching point for our project, the chulengos of spring are symbols of restoration, as grasslands rebound from overgrazed ranch to national park. At Chulengo Expeditions, we trace our roots back to Tompkins Conservation, the team behind the restoration and protection of millions of acres in Chile and Argentina. Curious and energetic, each chulengo reminds us of the power in each of us to work toward a wilder world.

Our Commitment to Aysén

 

For Chile’s ambitious new system of national parks to truly succeed, it must generate livelihoods for the nearby communities and support conservation-based prosperity. We take seriously our responsibility to support Aysén-based businesses and families. Every year, in partnership with our expedition participants, we direct a share of our profits to local social and environmental causes.
