We lean into the power of wildness to offer transformative experiences: physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.
As adventurers, educators and conservationists, we find camaraderie and reflection, creativity and routine, epiphanies and synthesis through uninterrupted time in the wilderness. Our project avoids mass tourism in favor of a thoughtful experience.
We listen to the lessons of the landscapes we walk through.
We use these parks as classrooms for exploring Patagonia's history, land conservation, and wilderness, bringing years of expertise as members of the Tompkins Conservation team, which spearheaded the protection of 10 million acres in Chile's newest national parks. Protected through determination and commitment, these new national parks call on each of us to commit to "paying our rent for living on the planet."
We teach outdoor skills that empower participants for their own explorations.
We call our style "lightweight guiding." We handle the logistics and bring years of outdoor experience and local knowledge to share. But we'll ask you to carry your own weight, literally and figuratively, through difficult terrain and unpredictable weather.
Thoughtful, immersive wilderness travel invites us into deeper relationship with the natural world, each other, and ourselves.
Chulengo Expeditions believes these wild experiences ground work toward a more resilient, beautiful, and equitable world. As educators, outdoorspeople and activists, we've spent years rooted in Patagonia and are continually awed by its beauty and power. We're invested in this place’s future as a global model of land conservation and sustainable resource use, and ask participants to question and develop their personal land ethic as we move through this inspiring region.
