The ultimate Patagonia adventure – Exclusive Escorted Journey. Just 8 places available.



Explore off the beaten path and into Patagonia's wild, remote secret heart

Patagonia, the legendary land of wilderness, fierce winds, and hardy gauchos, easily lives up to the allure of its iconic name. Come far away from the beaten path to Amazing Aysen, the undiscovered heart of Patagonia and it’s hidden gem; untouched by tourism and an absolute paradise for travellers who embrace the outdoors. Here you’ll find immense forests, and mysterious fjords and channels, woven within a tangled land of islands, jagged mountains and giant glaciers, reaching up to the Northern and Southern Icefields.

Hike, raft, climb, float, ride, cycle, camp and fly; it is all included, and ready to surprise and delight you. The Carretera Austral is revered by explorers globally and considered one of the most beautiful roads in the world. Along the mainly gravel route we’ll discover small villages, incredible natural areas and an array of interesting people.

This is the Ultimate Patagonia Journey - 17 years in the making. Hidden from tourists, along winding roads with few signposts, it’s a place to engage with the locals and let them share its secrets. Ride with a pioneering gaucho, glide through caves of marble, barbeque with settler families, and hike with passionate guides.

Immerse yourself in the sublime Chacabuco Valley, an amazing gift to the world fuelled by the passion of visionary travellers, and join a spectacular day hike above the Great Glacier. This is a slow journey to allow time to really explore, paying homage to the Gaucho saying,’he who rushes, wastes time”.

Why Forward Travel?

Forward Travel is the brainchild of seasoned travellers David Smyth and Rose Toohey, who have combined their knowledge and experience to help forward thinking travellers travel better, travel further and travel more.

David and Rose have journeyed far and wide enjoying the road less travelled in preference to the busy highway. They own and run Forward Travel, so have the freedom, flexibility, and enthusiasm to tailor your trip exactly how you want it to be. They work directly with trusted tour operators in each country to offer you the largest range of choices in each destination.

The Forward style of travel

Travelling is not just about what you see but how you experience it. Forward Travel wants your memories to be of great guides, fantastic meals, comical "Spanglish" conversations, and how you felt being immersed in your location, rather than merely ticking off the sights you'd already seen before you left home.

Hotels are personally selected to deliver the best value. Your preferences will be considered to suggest hotels appropriate to the location and the amount of time you have available. Trips are often planned using good, tourist class hotels to save you money for a luxury mini holiday at the end of your trip. Hotels used in this collection are mainly 3.5-4 star, usually smaller hotels and offer some local character. Forward Travel looks for excellent locations, security and comfort, spacious public areas, large rooms, luggage space, good breakfasts and free wi-fi wherever possible.

English speaking guides will meet you in each location to escort you to your hotel. Guided sightseeing will introduce you to famous and fabulous places, and allow time to explore on your own. Expert local guides give great insight to hidden jewels and restaurants that the guide books don't know about. When it is time to move on, you will be collected from your hotel and taken to the next exciting destination. Some of the guided sightseeing is with other people, and some is private. Local buses are used for long distance travel, always with someone there to put you on the right bus, and someone to meet you at your destination. This gives you the maximum time to enjoy the journey without having to worry about the boring bits.
