San Martin de los Andes

MaPa Program

MaPa is an expedition of 6 + 1 days for Mothers, Fathers, and children from 12 years of age that aims to generate a memorable moment and live a space mutual learning.


For six days, in the Lanín National Park - near San Martín de los Andes-  mothers, fathers, and children will face challenges that seek to strengthen the natural bond of both parties and build a shared history that last for a lifetime.


MaPa is a pause, it is leaving everyday life aside and focusing on what is important in life.


Sleeping in a tent, telling a story next to a fire, cooking together or watching a sunset can generate a connection that is impossible to generate in the day-to-day life of the times we live in.

  • 1. Do I need to have mountain experience to participate?
    No, the expedition is designed for people with no experience in terrain or mountain experiences but definitely in good physical, psychological and emotional condition.
  • 2. What does 7 + 2 days mean?
    Which are seven days of expedition, plus the meeting day prior to the start of the expedition and the day after, that you can return home or stay at the destination to continue enjoying.
  • 3. Where is the expedition?
    The itinerary of the expedition is a well-kept secret. When we send you the acceptance email to the course, we will reveal the meeting place and time. Don't worry, we do it with enough time so you can organize yourself.
  • 4. How is the payment system?
    When we send you the value of the program, we tell you about the different payment options and the promotions that we have available.
  • 5. How do I get to the meeting point?
    Each participant decides whether to arrive by plane, car, bus or bicycle.
  • 6. Can I apply for a scholarship?
    Sorry, this option is not available for foreign participants
  • 7. How can I prepare myself physically?
    Undoubtedly, doing aerobic activities. For example, running or cycling.
  • 8. Are there shelters? Where do we sleep?
    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. We usually sleep in tents, but we're sure that one night you'll want to bivouac.
  • 9. Are there bathrooms?
    In shelters yes, but usually no. But don't worry, there are techniques for everything.
  • 10. What activities are we going to do?
    It is impossible -and contrary to our principles- to tell you everything we are going to do.
  • 11. Can you consider my dietary requirements?
    Definitely yes! You will only have to help us a little with the planning and cooking.
  • 12. Can I wear glasses or contact lenses on the expedition?
    Yes, they may even be used by some of the course instructors.
  • 14. Can I bring electronic devices to the expedition?
    First, we are going to remind you that on the fifth day of the expedition you will understand what a gram of excess in your backpack is. In addition, there is no telephone or Wi-Fi signal in the places we pass through. Finally, we remind you that if the device gets wet it is your responsibility.
  • 15. What training do my instructors have?
    The Patagonia On Foot team is made up of a group of teachers, mountain guides and kayak guides. Our instructors are true Outdoor Educators, with extensive experience in expeditions from different institutions in Argentina and abroad.
