5 Reasons to Go On an Epic Yoga Retreat to Patagonia

April 18, 2016

For yogis looking for an adventure, look no further than Patagonia—an outdoor adventure paradise.

As you head into the heart of wild Argentina and Chile, you’ll immediately feel humbled and inspired by the region’s jagged peaks, vast glaciers, snow-capped towering mountains, and wildlife-rich waters, ancient caves, and waterfalls. The night offers some of the most open, star-studded skies available, leaving a person more in touch with the universe and herself.

The region is ideal for adrenaline-lovers—offering epic hikes, kayaking, biking horseback riding, and off-roading, as well as beautiful views for any yoga practice.

For hiking lovers craving a view—look no further than Patagonia. Each step will allow the traveler to gaze out at vast glaciers, snow-capped mountains, and crystal-clear lakes.

In particular, Laguna Azul boasts tall, snowy mountains, a reflecting lake, and an open sky, bringing the hiker close to the clouds. The hike is often described as “pure joy.”

Torres Del Paine National Park is another popular, magical place to hike—encompassing mountains, glaciers, hikes, and rivers. The Torres del Paine are the distinctive three granite plains of the Paine mountain range extending up to 2,500 meters above sea level; be sure to drink a lot of water while visiting. The glaciers include Grey, Pingo, and Tyndall, belonging to the Southern Patagonia Ice Field. The views are absolutely breathtaking.

Grey Glacier is a magnificent, blue ice form surrounded by Grey Lake, and it’s just as magnificent as it looks. By kayaking and then sailing to the glacier, it increases the sense of connection to one of the earth’s most magnificent ice forms.

Visitors say you need to see it in person, bring a camera, and take it all in.

It also allows cyclists to see the area quicker with unique perspective.
