The 4-day El Chaltén hiking traverse is an experience thought for those visitors willing to do as many excursions as possible in 4 days!

El Chaltén is the trekking capital of Argentina. Probably one of the best places to hike in the world. There are so many possibilities that it’s impossible to cover them all at once. Rather than spend your time in El Chaltén looking for information about trips, trekking paths and expeditions, I offer to solve all of them at once! Therefore this 4-day El Chaltén hiking traverse is a mix of the can’t miss expeditions around the area!

I’ll pick you up at the bus station or at your hotel. And I’ll take care of everything from then on. I’ll cover Transfers, food, tents and sleeping bags. So you’ll be able to make the most out of the trip without thinking about the logistics of it.

On top of that I’ll be joining you on every tour. I’ll show you hidden places, give you information about the area and tell you the secrets of this magical paradise!

The usual tour starts going to the Fitz Roy Adventure Camp, where you’ll spend the first 2 nights in comfortable mountain Shacks. A full day excursion to the Desert Lake, followed by a full day excursion through the Fitz Roy trekking route. An overnight at the Poincenot Camp. And a final full day trek to Torre Lagoon.

But El Chaltén hiking traverse is meant for you to put together a customized schedule given your desire and hiking experience. Always putting the best service quality first!

So contact me to make the proper arrangements and get your next adventure going! And If you are coming to El Chaltén but you want to try something else, I can also offer a 3-day hike to Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre or an 8-day Fitz Roy Grand Tour.

About the guide

guide profile img

Since 1985 we have been operating the best trekking programs in southern Patagonia. We are always looking for new itineraries, unique expeditions, little known spots, and we offer the highest quality outdoor activities in the area... A good example of this are our classic Ice Field Expeditions that have been running with great success for many years.

Our mountaineering origin made us choose this pristine part of the Andes; Southern Patagonia is a place ruled by immense glaciers, rough weather, and mountains such as Mt Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, a place not to miss.
We hope you join us in one of our programs so our guides can show you what Patagonia is about. We offer the best hotels, lodges and camping arrangements to suit everyone.
