Pick one of two routes into the rugged, pristine beauty of Patagonia. The first is less physically demanding than the second. Both are ridiculous - in a good way.
A 5-day trek across the Patagonia's permanent southern ice cap. You'll be roped in. You'll pull your own gear sled. You'll camp on the ice. An glacier experience of a lifetime. Appropriate for beginners.
Then it's onward to cosmopolitan Buenos
Aires, the vibrant cultural capital of South America, to direct some of that positive Patagonia
energy into a 3-day volunteer project.
Our Backcountry expedition is physically moderate and visually breathtaking. You decide how active, easy or hard core you want to make it. Our Extreme Ice expedition is a passport to another world - for those who enjoy being physically tested a bit more rigorously.

"Most people travel to see something. Roadmonkey attracts those who travel to feel something. It may be your body hitting the ground as your bike crashes on top of you on a muddy road. Or it may be the realization that your destination is not a place, but a new way of seeing things. Adventure philanthropy joins the self-determination and motivation of true travel, peppers it with a little anthropology, and throws in some goofball moments to keep it all real."
What you are doing has had a huge affect on all of us, internally. Externally, there is a playground where there was none and a bit more hope than there was just a week ago. There are ties forged by the experience that go both ways, and cross oceans, that will never be undone. It's a beautiful thing.
