Description

San Carlos Bariloche is one most beautiful towns, typical of the Argentinian Patagonia. Bariloche is located in the center of Patagonia. It overlooks the stunning lake Nahuel Huapi. And it is guarded the Andes, a the magnificent and worldly famous mountain range. 

We’ll spend the first part of our adventure off-piste skiing and ski touring at some of the best ski resorts in town. All are located near the iconic Cerro Catedral and Cerro Bayo.

After that, we’ll ski tour through the beautiful surroundings of both peaks. So we’ll stay a few days in the comfortable and gorgeous lodge of the Baguales Mountain Reserve.

The Reserve is only a 2 hour drive from Bariloche and offers an easy access to the mesmerizing Villegas and Foyel River. Hence, it is one of my favorite spots. It combines enchanting forests brimming with beech trees and stunning canyons and valleys. We’ll also find majestic peaks with its breathtaking summits. Here, we’ll keep our eyes open in case we spot an Andean Condor flying above us. But we can also see many other curious creatures that call this place home.

The pristine wilderness and untouched sceneries all around this place, make it the absolutely perfect location for a trip like this. The relaxing sound of the water and nature surrounding us, will transport us to a magical land of peace and beauty.

Finally, I propose we spend a weekend in Buenos Aires to end this wonderful journey. This south american city is full of charming neighbourhoods and mesmerizing buildings. 

If you want to join this trip send me a request. I promise you won’t forget it. But, if you want an adventure in a completely different part of the world, check out this 17-day guided ascent of Kilimanjaro, that I guide too.

Accommodation

4 star hotels in Buenos Aires and Bariloche, and lodge La Mesada in double rooms with bathroom.

More info

If the snow and weather conditions are very good, and if the group wishes to do more off-piste skiing, it is possible as an extra to do some snowcats drops. All the routes can be completed with a day pack. A snowcat carries your luggage to reach La Mesada. You'll need to bring an appropriate back pack of approximately 30 liters, a travel bag, your ski equipment and appropriate clothing.
