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.
This type of adventures depends on the weather conditions and there are plenty of factors that can affect it. The guide has the right to cancel the expedition if the weather conditions are dangerous or not appropriate as well as if there is a problem with one of the group members.
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.
