Spectacular Hiking Trails Around The World
Greater Patagonian Trail
This trail is so underdeveloped, isolated, rigorous, and remote that only a few hikers have ever attempted it, never mind completed it. Requiring just as much orienteering, map reading, and logistical planning as actual physical endurance and hiking, this roughly 800 mile route uses horse trails, local paths, country roads, and even pack raft river sections to traverse the Patagonian Andes along the border of Chile and Argentina. It is an unofficial route in its infancy, but the pristine natural beauty of this region will surely attract intrepid backpackers in the years to come.
