    Take part in this adventure in the Los Glaciares National Park and enjoy climbing three different mountains in Patagonia.

    Los Glaciares National Park is a large park located in the Argentinian province of Santa Cruz. This area was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

    Our adventure will start in Calafate, a city located in Santa Cruz. From there, we’ll drive to El Chaltén, a village near the Andes. This unique program includes climbing Cerro Solo (2,121 meters), a mountain with an incredible view, Aguja de la S (2,335 meters), and Aguja Guillaumet (2,579 meters). In addition, you will visit Laguna Sucia and Piedra Negra Camp. For a more detailed description of the itinerary, take a look at the bottom of the page.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I´m based in Bariloche, Patagonia, where I guide full time, mostly technical custom trips with small groups.

    I started guiding in 1998, and my job took me all around the globe. In Montana, USA, where I lived for many years I worked extensively in the Rockies, guiding in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, and the Beartooths. Back to Argentina, I spend most of my time ski guiding volcanoes, rock climbing at Frey and mountaineering in Chalten and Tronador.

    The rest of time I work as a Technical director at the AAGM, forming new guides, and trying to be an exciting dad for my two kids, taking advantage of the great backyard we have at home!
