Trekking in Patagonia is about as safe and worry-free as any outdoor adventure can be. Still, it comes with the risks inherent in any outdoor activity. Our guides are experienced outdoor leaders and have received advanced emergency wilderness medical training as Wilderness First Responders. As a result of this preparation and a concern for your safety, we have never had a serious accident or injury on one of our trips.

In Patagonia the abundance of mountain Refuges and campsites means safety and help is never too far away.  Your guide is fully trained and experienced in how to safely evacuate a casualty and can contact local emergency services if and when required.  Please read our travel insurance information carefully and ensure you are fully covered for helicopter evacuation and repatriation. 

Emergency Evacuation Instructions

  • In the event of a serious accident or medical emergency, have someone remain with the participant.
  • If there is a mountain hut, inn, farm, or house nearby, seek assistance there.
  • The international distress call is a series of six signals (blasts on a whistle or horn, and after dark, flashes with a light) spaced evenly for a minute, followed by a one minute pause. Then repeat with an additional six signals. The reply is three signals followed by a minute's pause.
