ITINERARY:

Costa Rica

Day 1: Welcome to Patagonia


Our journey begins in Bariloche, Argentina. This remote mountain town is accessed by first catching a domestic flight from Buenos Aires. After a full day of traveling, we will feast upon world famous, Argentinian cuisine during our first group dinner followed by a brief orientation to the adventures ahead! After dinner we will explore the town and visit a small museum that discusses the local indigenous tribes and wildlife. Accommodations: Eco-Lodge




Day 2: Life in the Mountains


This morning we embark on an adventure into the Andes Mountains. A four-hour trek will lead you past shimmering alpine lakes and to spiraling granite peaks overlooking the immense Patagonia landscape. Tonight we will be staying in a rustic lodge perched next to the towering Glacier Castaño Overo. Curl up next to the fireplace and watch the stars out the window from our cozy lodge. Accommodations: Eco-Lodge




Day 3: Climbing Towards Adventure


Patagonia is a rock and ice climbing mecca that has attracted visitors from around the world. Today you'll learn why first-hand! Depending on the conditions, we will learn the ropes of ice or rock climbing. Challenge yourself as you scale peaks to indescribable views. This evening we will have a hearty, traditional dinner to refuel us!




Day 4: Hidden Waterfalls


This morning we wake up in the quaint village of El Bolsón. After a warm farm to table breakfast, we will depart for a leisurely hike to hidden waterfalls tucked between the crevices of the granite cliffs. The journey across hanging bridges and up wooden ladders may inspire you to take a dip in one of the many crisp waterfalls. This evening we will catch the sunset from the highest point in town while sipping on locally sourced coffee. Accommodations: Eco-Lodge




Day 6: World Famous Rafting


Between lush valleys and towering peaks appears Futaleufu’s main character: the river. Continuous and numerous rapids with different difficulty levels, make the “Fu” an unmissable destination for rafting lovers. It’s crystal clear water in contrast with huge mountains, offer one of the premier whitewater rafting experiences in the world! Accommodations: Cave "glamping"




Day 5: A Glimpse of Chile


The Patagonia region is comprised of portions of Argentina and Chile. Today we venture across the border marked by jagged mountain peaks and into Chile. Tonight we will be staying in one of our favorite locations- the treehouse camp! Tap into your inner child as we make our way into the rustic treehouses perched 30 ft off the ground and connected between each other by a series of bridges. This hidden gem is rarely visited by foreigners and is positioned next to a natural lake. There, we can enjoy the lakeside hot tub, kayaking, or hiking up to Condor Hill where you can usually see these spectacular birds that with their outstretched wings that extend up to 11 feet! Accommodations: Treehouse Eco-lodge




Day 7: One Last View


This morning we will hike out from our mountain home and begin our journey back towards Bariloche. Tonight we will watch our final sunset and reflect on the incredible journey we were just a part of. Tonight is our final group dinner. You will have a chance to walk around town to grab any last minute souvenirs to take back to your family and friends.
Accommodations: Eco-lodge homestay




Day: End of the Journey


Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end...or do they! Although we head home today, the sights and experiences from Patagonia will be forever a part of your life! Accommodations: Your own bed!

Mike Dann

The Costa Rica trip met and exceeded all my expectations. Accommodations, at all levels, were a wonderful experience. Caving, Ziplining, Rafting, Repelling,Wildlife experiences, Local people. What could be better! The trip was well planned in order of easy experiences to more difficult as the trip progressed. Easing us old timers into it. Cody and Lystina were great hosts, guides, traveling companions and very conscientious for each of the team members. 

Steve Blatney

This was hands-down one of the the most exciting, rewarding, and memorable trips I've ever been on! The peace of mind to know that I didn't have to worry about anything was worth every penny. All I had to do was show up. Cody and Lystina took it from there. No stress, no anxiety, no rushing around or wasting time trying to find an activity or a place to eat. I got to sit back, relax, and experience a whole new world that was far beyond my map.

Madisen Gomez

Beyond the map is for sure one of the best travel companies you can go with. Everything they had us do was something I never thought I was capable of! I pushed myself & completed everything & it was just an amazing feeling. The things you see and the people you meet just makes the trip hundred times better! This was my first time in Costa Rica & I don’t think I would’ve had a better experience with anyone else!
