If you are in the market for the kind of vacation that takes you to the limit, perhaps consider the exhausting adventure that takes extreme athletes to the end of the world.

Digg spotted the following video that captures just one of the 20 teams that compete in the grueling Patagonian Expedition Race that takes place “in the heart of southern Chilean Patagonia.”

In just a couple of minutes you meet Chelsey and Jason Magness; both of whom now have a sizable portion of our respect and admiration, because they have taken part in a race that demands just about every manner of human conveyance.  

Here is their story from Seeker Stories:

You can find out more on the next epic journey that kicks off in February of 2016 at the website or you can glean a modicum of the thrilling adventure with the following gorgeous video:

The race in 2016 will mark a return of sorts for the event, which took a brief respite after 2013.

This time around, however, things are being turned up a notch. The website quotes PER’s founder and race director, Stjepan Pavicic, who offers, “we will move between mountains, fjords, and glaciers towards the western sector of southern Patagonia, an inhospitable territory, to which never before has a race gone.”

Beauty and nature’s grandeur is just the backdrop for some amazing people doing incredible things.

When you are pushing yourself to the edge of possibilities and towards the "end" of the world, there is no time to sit back and appreciate all that is around you.

That’s a shame, because this small group of people are competing in some of the most isolated and captivating places on earth.
