Frey and Jakob Huts 3-day trek

Juan was a great guide. We went in mid November and there’s no way we could have done the Frey to Jacob traverse without him. He’s very relaxed but you feel very safe and unhurried, good fun to be around. He looked after us really well and even let us take a shower at his place before we headed off to the airport.

Me and my sister booked two treks with Explorer-Share and guide Gisela. We are vers content with havinspektionen Gisela as a guide. She was on time, very pleasant company, had made an ekstra effort to make the trip interesting, very knowledgeable and just all in all made our trip to El Chalten a success

Trekking Cerro Huemul loop, El Chalten

Everything about this trip was really great. Firstly explore-share was extremely helpful, really responsive. We felt really supported making all the arrangements from Netherlands to Argentina. Thanks for the team for that! In terms of the trip -- this was one of the most special trips we ever had. Huemel circuit is was very special. You start day1 in Patagonian forests and slowly ascend to the more rugged, stoney views of the circuit until you end up in the glaciers (and walk on them!) in day 2. Day 2 is slightly challenging due to the long ascend and walk until the camp. But without being very experienced we were able to do it (also thanks to our amazing guide Luis). We camped in an area only by ourselves, where it snowed overnight, which added to the majestic beauty of the whole trip. Day 3 mainly was descending to the 3rd camp area next to Viedma lake. This was also slightly challenging given the very steep descend in the forest, but despite the challenge it was fun, and was filled with great views. The reward is big, where Viedma lake is awaiting with glacier pieces floating on the lake just in front of you (and sometimes letting go some of it’s pieces). It’s a mesmerising area. And day 4 is going back to the start through next to the lakes, hares and guanakos. slightly easier trek but very peaceful, a nice goodbye to the circuit. We were picked up by a car at the end, arranged by Merlin/Luis. In all days, we were flabbergasted by the ruggedness and beauty of Patagonian mountains, glaciers, forests, lakes and everything we've seen. We were mainly alone in the circuit -- at least in the direction we were doing there was no one else with us. In that sense it was extra special. Our guide Luis was one of the main reasons for why this trip was so special. Very experienced and friendly -- made us feel really comfortable in what we were doing through his guidance on technical moves (e.g. in traverses, when we are descending etc). Also very experienced in the area, knew the circuit step by step - gave us a lot of information on the story of the geography not just like a guide but like a scientist almost (he was full of knowledge for this space). It was obvious that he really loves these lands and mountains, it was great to experience this route with him. I never write reviews, but this was a great trip on all levels, and want to make sure anyone who sees the review doesn’t doubt and just goes for it. Thank you Luis, Merlin and explore share - for your friendliness, professionalism and love of nature. You definitely added an incredible memory to our minds. I highly recommend everyone to experience Huemel Circuit with Luis and Merlin. Gulcin and Sebastiaan

Trekking to Aconcagua “Confluencia” Base Camp, Day trip from Mendoza

Joaquin was an amazing tour guide! He was polite, on time, and gave us an amazing experience. He is not only a great guide but amazing person, we love talking to him and learning about Argentina and consider him a friend. We are so appreciative and this hike was the highlight of our trip.

3-day guided trek in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego

Marine was a really wonderful guide and she made the 3 day trek around Tierra del Fuego a great pleasure for us. She is very knowledgable and a very professional guide. Marine also helped us with renting clothes that we needed and went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we would need. I would definitely recommend this trek as well as Marine and Seba. Booking and paying through explore-share was also very easy and efficient. Thank you to all!

Ojo del Albino Glacier trekking day in Ushuaia, Argentina

Since my Dad could not come due to illness I am hoping his tour price can be refunded. The tour was nice although the trail conditions were incredibly muddy and wet, which can’t be helped. But people should be warned about how wet and muddy it is. Gabriel and Félix were great and the views were spectacular! Thanks.

Trekking to Aconcagua “Confluencia” Base Camp, Day trip from Mendoza

The hike and location were great, but what made it a super experience was Joaquin, our guide. He shared a lot of his knowledge about the nature and the country. He really took his time and let you enjoy all the surroundings have to offer. On top of that we had an amazing lunch (you have to try the carrot mayonaise) with an incredible view. If we ever go back to Argentina we’ll definitely book another day with him. Thanks for making mendoza unforgettable!

Guided 1-day trek to Laguna Esmeralda, Ushuaia

I came here at the end of Winter, so it was still snowing and the lake was unfortunately frozen with snow on top. However, the hike had amazing views with a very knowledgeable Guide. Pick up was on time and all information was given to me as needed. Highly recommend.

Trekking to Aconcagua “Confluencia” Base Camp, Day trip from Mendoza

I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. Joaquin is an excellent guide, and will not only take you to you destination, but also teach you a lot about the geography and history around Aconcagua and the area around. The view of Aconcagua is better by the entrance to the park, but the trip up to Confluencia is worth the trouble if you are staying in Mendoza (or nearby, I travelled from Chile just for this hike). Depending on your fitness level, Joaquin can find a hike that will suit you and give you an experience of the Andes mountains that you wont get anywhere else.

Trekking Cerro Huemul loop, El Chalten

Recientemente fui guiado en el circuito de Cerro Huemul por Luis, quien era un guía muy experimentado, experto y profesional. Ayudó con los 2 cruces de tirolesa, la parte de la caminata que requería caminar sobre el glaciar, y significó que nunca tuve dudas sobre dónde llevaba el sendero. Merlin organizó a la perfección toda la comida, el equipo y la transferencia de retorno desde el final del camino. Debido a que toda la experiencia transcurrió tan bien, y Luis hizo que mi caminata fuera tan cómoda y agradable, definitivamente recomendaría esta compañía. El sendero en sí era hermoso, con muchas vistas impresionantes y estoy muy contento de haberlo experimentado. Entre los puntos destacados se encuentran los Campos de Hielo de la Patagonia Sur después de escalar sobre Windy Pass, así como los cóndores al otro lado del paso Huemul y las vistas desde el último campamento.

8-Day Southern Patagonia Ice Field Expedition

I first saw the opportunity to trek the South Patagonia Icefield when I was in El Chalten 3 years ago. I finally took the plunge this year and signed up with Serac Expeditions for their late-February departure - best decision ever! The Expedition itself is incredible! Only about 100 people/year undertake it so you get to see a part of Patagonia that few others have experienced. And of course the scenery is amazing. I won't lie - the expedition is challenging (especially for a relatively small female), but if you go in with reasonable fitness and the right mental attitude, it is totally doable and absolutely worth it. It also helps when you have decent weather :) Serac Expeditions are wonderful! They are very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process of arranging the trek, provide excellent equipment, and work with incredible guides (million thanks Juan and Rafa - you guys are awesome!). They also include some special surprises along the way, but you'll have to sign up yourself or read my blog posts to find out what ;) 100% recommend Serac Expeditions and this trek. I am now wanting to return to do the Marconi - Estancia Cristina expedition with them, but this time at the start of the season (November) to experience the Icefield with snowshoes rather than crampons.

8-Day Southern Patagonia Ice Field Expedition

My husband and I had a great experience with Serac - we did the El Chalten Mountain Escape trek and it was fantastic. Our guide (Christian) was very knowledgeable and kind; food was excellent and they even had wine portered to our campsites each night. All in all, highly recommended!

4-Day Huemul Circuit with Ice Field Views, Patagonia

This was a great trek. The organization by and support from the Serac team was top notch. I reserved well in advance and the communications I received before my trip were always clear and timely. Once I arrived in EL Chalten, everything was smooth. Hostels were arranged and the team arrived to walk us through the trek. The guides were knowledgeable and helpful, the trek was challenging but the views were rewarding. Highlights were camping in "iceberg bay" and the hike up to Paso del Viento. The shuttle back to El Chalten was timely and even came with a complimentary beer! The trek is tough so not for the mentally unprepared.

4-Day Huemul Circuit with Ice Field Views, Patagonia

Awesome guides provided by serac Expedition. The Huemul circuit is really beautiful and we were lucky to have good weather. Meals provided were sufficient, given that you have to carry your food, and dinner carried by the guide. It would be cheaper if you could go in a bigger group, and also definitely more enjoyable with more people. We managed to spend 1 hour at the Paso del Vento and the view is amazing!

Trekking expedition to Marconi Pass

¡Fantástico! ! Ambos tuvimos una increíble aventura con nuestro guía de montaña, Max. Por suerte el clima era perfecto y toda la experiencia fue fantástica. Realmente disfrutamos aprendiendo sobre el área local, así como la montaña de plantas autóctonas que Max estaba muy dispuesto a transmitir durante el viaje. Nos sentimos seguros en todo el 3 días y tenía plena confianza en nuestros guías los niveles. Él también era muy agradable y divertido. El día en el glaciar fue inolvidable. Explorando las cuevas y ver los hoyos profundos de la fusión del hielo fue de lo más destacado. El equipo de escalada y tutorial para principiantes era genial. Un especial de unos pocos días en las montañas que le gusta compartir durante algún tiempo. gracias Merlin para organizar nuestro viaje y nos configurar con un gran guía. Todo lo mejor y nos pondremos en contacto la próxima vez que estemos en El Chaltén. Leon y armonía

8-Day Southern Patagonia Ice Field Expedition

Super professionals, great choice! When looking for options for trekking in Patagonia, Serac was the company that responded in the shortest time. They asked for our preferences and skills and they put together a plan for us. We adapt the program to our preferences and they always guided us and recommended what seemed best to us. Super thoughtful throughout the whole  planning. We spent 1 day in the Perito Moreno glacier and 4 days hiking guided by Martin (great experience with him, very good guide, at all times he knew how to adapt the plan to the climatic conditions and our fitness) Everything from the pick up to the airport, the hostels, the camping, the food to the guided one by the mountain have been exceptional !!!! Thanks to all the team, Diego, Sergio and Mariano for being so aware of us!

Southern Ice Field Expedition, Patagonia

Fantastischer Bergsteiger-Trip über das patagonische Eisfeld von El Chaltén aus. Unser Bergführer Juan und sein Assistent Raffael waren hervorragende Führer. Wir hatten eine super Zeit zusammen. Die Tour ist körperlich sehr anspruchsvoll, ein echtes Abenteuer. Aufgrund eines Schlechtwetter-Einbruchs mussten wir zusammen 2,5 Tage auf einer chilenischen Hütte ohne Heizmöglichkeit Weihnachten feiern. Juan und Raffa haben uns am 24.12. sogar Pizza auf dem Gaskocher gebacken! Das Wetter klarte auf und wir konnten auf das Eisfeld gehen. Die Blicke auf den Cerro Torre und FitzRoy waren atemberaubend schön! Die gesamte Organisation über Merlin und sein Büro sowie mit Juan und Raffa waren top! Unser absolutes Highlight in Patagonien.

Base Camps Trek in El Chaltén

Had a really amazing time on this trek. Most credit to our very knowledgeable guide Juan, his assistant Matthias who was also a good cook and porters Waco and Patto. The trip was very well organized, and we learned a lot from being hands on as far as pitching and taking down our own tents. The views were amazing and everyday had something different to offer. Would definitely recommend Mountaineering Patagonia to anyone who wants see the beauty of Patagonia. Would love to do the Southern Ice field someday with the same company

Base Camps Trek in El Chaltén

I just returned from an incredibly memorable and exciting trip from Patagonia, the highlight being the 6 day Base Camps trek with Mountaineering Patagonia. The trip was well organized, the food was amazing (I think we all gained weight somehow despite the long days of hiking) and the guides were wonderful-particularly our lead guide Juan. If you're looking for an adventurous outdoor experience with a team that truly knows and loves the area I highly recommend them. The experience could not have been better. Thank you Merlin, Juan & the rest of Mountaineering Patagonia for an incredible time!

Hut to hut trekking, Bariloche

My husband and I have been on many incredible hikes all over Argentina with Lucas as our Guide. He has taken us to the most phenomenal places and pushed us (willingly) to our limits whilst at the same time always feeling very safe knowing that he is such an expert and highly qualified mountaineer. We have crossed glaciers wearing crampons as the sun rises, we have climbed volcanoes that we thought would never be physically possible, and Lucas has been fun and entertaining along the way. He jas great judgement - the tripas are planned and amended along the way in order that you can totally disconnect from everyday life. Every trip also contains interaction with local people and so we have learnt a lot about Argentinean culture and Argentinean people. Georgina and Rob Smart - England
