Wilderness immersion in Patagonia

Expeditions in and for wild places

We schemed up Chulengo Expeditions to bring friends, friends-of-friends, and soon-to-be-friends to real wild places, those landscapes that deeply inspire us, challenge us, and offer space to think hard about the part each of us might play in a wilder, more ecologically healthy future. 

We're working to create backpacking expeditions that lead toward enchantment with the natural world, ourselves, and our communities, via immersive wilderness travel. This vision grows out of years of explorations while working toward the creation of Chile's future Patagonia National Park. As longtime members of the team creating this 700,000-acre future national park, we're committed to sharing this landscape's beauty and power as we dive into human/nature futures in this region and beyond. Please join us in this exploration!

Foundations of our Approach

Commitment to wildness

In the words of Aldo Leopold, “we can only be ethical in relation to something we can see, understand, feel, love, or otherwise have faith in." We believe connection with the natural world can ground a respectful relationship between us and the rest of Earth. Our project is to educate, challenge and inspire, leaning away from mass tourism in favor of a thoughtful, wild experience.  

Lightweight guiding

We teach outdoor skills, find remote routes and create community to give you space to challenge yourself.  Think of it as an invitation to co-create adventure.  We handle all the logistics and bring years of local knowledge. But we'll ask you to carry your own weight, literally and figuratively. 

Less traveled landscapes

All expeditions travel through off-the-beaten-path wilderness areas. Spectacular but difficult to access, these places require careful planning to reach. Backpacking lets us to reach these rarely-visited corners with minimal impact. As we disconnect from devices and to-do lists, we reconnect with the rhythms of sunrises and moonrises and afternoon swims.
