The Patagonia Wilderness and Travel Medicine CME Conferences visit one of the premier scenic mountain areas on the planet!

Chile's Torres del Paine and Argentina's Los Glaciares National Parks are among the great scenic wonders of the world! This is a pilgrimage which all passionate mountain-lovers must do at least once in their lifetime. This extraordinary trip brings you to the very heart of both of these legendary regions. We begin in remote reaches of Los Glaciares Park with spectacular views of Cerro Torre, Fitzroy and the Southern Patagonia Ice Field.

Next, we cross into Chile, where we explore Torres del Paine, an icon for dramatic mountain scenery! We'll see jaw-dropping vistas of rock spires, jagged snowy peaks, the huge expanse of the Patagonia Ice Field, tranquil azure lakes, and golden grasslands bright with wildflowers. Each night, we'll savor the days activities over tasty meals in cozy lodges.

The Wilderness Medicine education will take place each evening before dinner.
