This one isn’t about Portland hikes, but rather a Portland hiking company: Embark Adventures, whom I work for.

Embark is mainly about Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and trekking in the Himalayas, but today we announced the trip lineup for 2013 and the start of 2014. It’s a remarkable set of trips — Nepal, Bhutan, Kilimanjaro, wildlife safaris — and new for this year is trekking in Patagonia. I went to Patagonia years ago and took the above photo of the Perito Moreno Glacier, which the Embark trip will visit and upon which one can walk. Seriously:

Embark's trip will include actually walking on the surface of the glacier.

No, typically trekking in Patagonia looks more like this:

Anyway, here again is the list of Embark trips for 2013 and 2014. It’s a great company, and the trips all look amazing.
