Join IFMGA certified guide Lucas on a full day trekking adventure across the Alerce glacier on the beautiful Mount Tronador near Bariloche, Argentina.
Spend a full day trekking on the amazing Alerce glacier on Mt. Tronador.
Gaze out at the gorgeous scenery of Argentinean Patagonia.
Spend some time enjoying the nearby city of Bariloche.
The trek will begin at the Meiling hut early in the morning. From there, we will check our glacier equipment and head out. The trek will take between 4 and 5 hours. During that time, we will traverse the Alerce glacier until we reach the Roca hut, where the trip will conclude.
The views you will get throughout the day, not just of the glacier but also of the surrounding area, are nothing short of amazing. In order to maximize those views, we will also make our way to the upper part of the mountain by going over large slabs of rock. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled as you may spot an enormous Andean condor flying overhead!
The pace of this trip will not be too taxing. However, because of the arduous nature of glacier trekking, participants should be in good physical condition.
Glacier trekking is an amazing activity. Fun, thrilling and unbelievably scenic, the experience is amazing. And the Alerce glacier on Mount Tronador near Bariloche is no different. To enjoy this trek for yourself, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.
Would you climb Mount Tronador to its summit? Then come and join me on this full day mountaineering trip that also begins at the Meiling hut.
The Roca hut is a comfortable mountain hut that you can spend the night in after the trip at your own expense.

The Meiling Hut in the morning.
I was born in a very remote area of northern Argentina which gave me a special appreciation for the outdoors. When I was 16 my family moved south, closer to the mountains, and I started to climb in the Andes. I've been mountaineering – trekking and climbing – ever since.
I've traveled and climbed throughout Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, the USA, Canada and Europe. I spent two summer seasons working in Aosta, Italy where I completed numerous ascents and climbing on the area.
At some point in my younger years, my career path steered me to the telecommunications industry, scaling towers and fixing cellular systems. But the mountains were never far away and I eventually returned to my roots and become a mountain guide since 2001.
In the winter I focus on being a ski guide around the mountain range and also the volcanoes, this is how I spend part of my time on the winter seasons as well as teaching backcountry ski and avalanche awareness courses.

Lucas is an all-round and really good guide. I really enjoyed my trip with him. He is capable of adjusting the difficulty of the terrain to the capabilities of his clients. Would recommend him to anybody.
It was a real pleasure to spend two amazing days with Lucas. Really nice to spend time with him and most important Lucas is really a good guide. The trips were amazing with a fantastic scenario. Even if snow conditions were not the best, the panorama has played a key role in making this trip unforgettable
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
Have recently hiked up Mt Tronador with Lucas as a guide. The rest of the team and I were very happy to have him guide us. He is very professional and experienced, yet also very attentive and friendly. Would definitely consider hiring him again for our next adventure!
