2-day Ski Tour from Refugio Lopez in Bariloche, Patagonia Norte

Join IFMGA certified guide Indio for a 2 day ski touring adventure at the Refugio Lopez in beautiful Bariloche in Argentinean Patagonia.


2 Days

Jul, Aug, Sep




* Enjoy 2 days of great ski touring at the Refugio Lopez in Bariloche, Argentina.

* Ski at great spots like Cerro Lopez and the valley of Magnat Peak.

* Bask in the sensational views of Patagonia.


One of the most famous, and oldest, refuges in Bariloche, the Refugio Lopez is a fantastic place for ski touring. And on this trip, you will get to enjoy not one, but two days of unforgettable skiing.

Along with the great skiing, the views you will get from the Refugio Lopez are unbelievable. You will get to see a number of amazing peaks, valleys and seemingly endless forest that have made Patagonia so renowned. You will also get to gaze at the Nahuel Huapi Lake as well.

The day before our trip starts, we will have a brief meeting, where we will finalize details and perform an equipment check.

The following day, early in the morning, we will drive to the entrance of the path that will take to the Refugio Lopez. At the refuge, you will drop off your personal belongings. After that, you will get to spend the entire skiing before returning to the refuge for dinner and some sleep.

On the next day, after breakfast, you will get to enjoy another full day of great skiing at either the Cerro Lopez or the valley of Magnat Peak. Each one of these spots will provide you with fantastic skiing opportunities, and in the case of the valley of Magnat Peak, you can even enjoy some forest skiing. Afterwards, we will return to Bariloche along the same path we took to reach the refuge.

Ski touring in Bariloche is an experience you will never forget. The views, as well as the slopes are incredible. To enjoy it for yourself, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I can also take you ski touring on the Cerro Piltriquitron at El Bolson, on this 2-day trip.

Mountain Guide

I am an IFMGA and a High Mountain AAGM certified Mountain Guide. I was born in San Juan, where I found my passion for the mountains when I was a child. Today my home is El Chalten, this magical place where I have my family and where I work and live since 2008.

I have climbed many different peaks along the Andes, as well as in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, France, Spain, Germany Italy, Austria and Switzerland. I have climbed great mountains and new routes in Patagonia, both in Cerro Torre and in the Fitz Roy mountains. I climbed Mount Fitz Roy five times and Mount Torre three times. All of them through different routes and some of them opening a new one.

One of my biggest achievements was the Standhardt - Herron - Egger traverse and the "Directa Huarpe" new route, on the west face of Cerro Torre. As well as climbing the Tehuelche route on the Fitz Roy hill in 16 hours.

I also guide in the Central Andes, in places such as Cerro Mercedario and Vallecitos in Mendoza, among other mountains. I am also a Mountaineering and Climbing instructor in different associations and member of the relief committee at the Club Andino Mercedario of the San Juan Province. I am also a member of the technical committee of the Argentine Association of Mountain Guides, in which I am part of the staff of instructors for IFMGA guides.

I guide my clients mainly in Patagonia. I spend summer in the town of El Chalten and I move to Bariloche, in northern Patagonia, in the winter, where I guide more technical excursions, like ice and/or rock climbing, as well as classic mountaineering ascents. During the year I also guide in the mountains of Peru, Bolivia and in Europe.

Even when I’m not working I enjoy climbing, bouldering, sport skiing and mountaineering. Keeping at my highest level of performance helps me ensure my clients’ safety, that is always my top priority.

What people are saying about Indio



Indio is an awesome guide and all around great guy. The trip up Aguja Guillaumet is absolutely amazing, we took the Comensana-Fonrouge route cause the Amy coluoir was in bad condition. Indio found a two day window of good weather for the climb. He also spent a day climbing in town to go over "systems" and gauge my ability. A great trip I will never forget. Can't say enough good things about Indio!


Indio was a fun and skillful guide! My friend and I did multi and single pitch with him and felt very safe. We felt like we were climbing with a friend and learned along the way! We will be back, maybe next time mountaineering with Indio!



Beautiful moment shared. First summit in the Fitzroy line. Magical and fascinating place. We climbed through the route Amy for the summit Guillaumet. Indio is the perfect, Professional and passionate, he's a perfect guide to do quality with security. Next time, we plan to clim both pics: Cerro Torres and Fitzroy. Enjoy seb



Indio is a very friendly and skillful guide who brought us on the top of the wonderful Cerro Solo. No doubt it's the best way to explore Patagonia!



Thanks for bringing us to Cerro Solo (el Chalten)! It has been a wonderful adventure! I'll come back or maybe we see each other in your region, San Juan, to climb some volcanos...! Take care, Gauthier
