HSX Patagonia 2017

Since its foundation in 1986, Hampshire Scout Expeditions (HSX) have successfully run over 20 international expeditions for Hampshire Scouts across the globe. In 2017 we’ll be breaking new ground and heading to the Patagonian Andes!

Patagonia is a sparsely populated region located at the southern tip of South America, shared by Argentina and Chile. The region comprises the southern section of the Andes, characterised by granite pillars, deserts, steppes and grasslands.

The expedition will take place over the course of six weeks, in the winter of 2017, with the expedition team likely to leave in late November 2017, returning in early January 2018. The trip will comprise of three principle elements; a community development project working with the locals; a trek around the Torres del Paine National Park and climbing in the Andean mountains; and to finish, a series of cultural tours and adventurous activities. Participants will experience Chile’s unique culture, incredible sights, stunning scenery and fascinating history.

Prior to the expedition the participant will undertake an 18 month training programming focusing on teamwork, personal development and leadership skills to ensure that members gain as much as possible from the experience. The hope that as well as being a life changing experience for those involved, such experiences and contacts will bring greater understanding and tolerance, of the multi-cultural society in which we live today.

The expedition aims to continue the HSX tradition of being a life changing experience for all involved and inspiring the next generation of expedition leaders.

Recruitment for the expedition has started and we would love to hear from you! We are hosting a “taster day” which is to be held in Winchester on Sunday 24th April 2016. Email the leader team at the below address to find out the venue information.

If you’d like to know more about the expedition please feel free to contact the leader team (Patagonia@hsx.org.uk) or stay tuned to the blog for more details.
