What you need to know

You could be part of the incredible #TeamGenesis and trek Patagonia with amazing women just like you. By signing up for this challenge you will be helping us fund world class research which saves the lives of women and babies. Miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth are just three of the areas of research we fund, everyone will know someone affected by these three tragedies. Genesis Research Trust with your help can prevent these tragedies from happening but we need you to trek for our researchers!

Course Details

This is a truly incredible trek! You’ll be starting off in Bariloche which is the gateway to Argentina’s oldest National Park – the spectacular Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi. You’ll be trekking through the park and exploring its diverse and beautiful surroundings, waterfalls, streams and forests set against the snow-capped mountains of the Sierra Cuyin Manzono. On the final day you’ll cross the border into Chile and explore the lush rainforests teeming with parrots, hummingbirds and parakeets. You’ll cross the Rio Peulla using the amazing suspension bridge, from here you’ll finish the trek at Lake Todos Los Santos.

On average each day there will be between 6-8 hours trekking depending on the pace of the group. The terrain will be challenging so training for inclines is key! Don’t worry! We’ll be here to help you with bespoke training materials to help you in the lead up to the event.
