Follow Julian, an AAGM certified guide, on this marvellous trekking journey to reach the summit of the Tromen volcano. Let him guide you across this fantastic place in the Northern Patagonia, Argentina.

Sleep in a camp at 3,000 m with breathtaking views
Enjoy an exquisite roasted goat as you descend the volcano
Reaching the base of the Tromen volcano is a an adventure on its own. Once we arrive, we’ll see a lagoon with over 26 different species of aquatic and migrating birds. Then we’ll ascend by the sides of the volcano covered in snow, until we reach a high altitude camp. And when we get to the summit, we’ll be able to see dazzling glacier valleys and colossal peaks.
On day one we’ll meet in Chos Malal early in the morning. From there we’ll drive towards the Tromen Provincial Park, where we’ll begin our trekking towards the camp located at 3,000 meters. This will take around 4 to 5 hours. Then, we’ll set our base camp, and recover our energies for reaching the summit next day.
Day two will be when we attempt to stand at the top of Tromen. On this day we’ll hike through the last part of the ascent to Tromen’s summit, at around 4,100 meters, which will take about 6 hours. After exploring the summit and trekking through other secondary craters, we will get prepared for our descent. So we’ll start descending to our base camp. And then we’ll reach the area where our vehicle will be waiting for us to take us back to Chos Malal.
So if you want to join this wonderful trekking journey, don’t miss the chance and send me a request. It will be my absolute pleasure to guide you across this fantastic place.
