Robinson Crusoe / Deep Patagonia

15 June 2012

Robinson Crusoe is our mother-company where we were fired by passion for the spirit of this universal legend.

After several exploratory journeys to Deep Patagonia, we discovered the force of its indescribable beauty and the diversity of its remote landscapes, evoking the freedom we have lost. Convinced that the World should reach and see this marvellous place, we began this undertaking and took over another company, Hielo Sur, set up in 1999 when the Austral Way (the very end of the Pan-American Highway) reached its southernmost point, the little village of Villa O’Higgins, located beside Glacier Lake (O’Higgins Lake).

In January 2005, our passenger vessel Quetru made its first voyage to the Great Glacier and today we are playing an important role in the development of the Patagonian Corridor, linking the Chilean Austral Way with the localities of El Chaltén and El Calafate in Argentina.

Further south one can re-enter Chile to visit the “Torres del Paine” (Paine Peaks) and then the city of Punta Arenas, facing the “Estrecho de Magallanes” (Strait of Magellan ) and “Tierra del Fuego” (Land of Fire).

In the course of 2010 we built our first Lodge in Villa O’Higgins, which we called “Robinson Crusoe Deep Patagonia”. It is the only one of its kind in the area, comfortable and with attractive features for visitors. To allow us to provide a good transport service we also have a bus for our passengers. We shall continue growing year by year, adding services and reaching out to new, remote places around Glacier Lake in Deep Patagonia.
