Join me for this picturesque and awe-inspiring 6-day trek through the wilderness of Patagonia as we camp on lagoon shores and hike through mountain passes!

After meeting in Bariloche, we will discuss our itinerary and check out our gear. Then early the next morning, we transfer to Colonia Suiza and the journey begins.

Over the course of the next five days, we will hike through over glaciers, along mountain passes and on the banks of the numerous lagoons in the area. To whet your appetite for the spectacular views you will become accustomed to by the end of the trip, on the very first day of hiking we make our way to Refugio Italia and enjoy the spectacular vistas it affords.

As we trek through valleys and across mountain streams, Monte Tronador will be among the many peaks that looms over us, capturing our attentions and imagination.

There will be plenty of up and down throughout the trip, so having a high level of physical fitness prior to beginning the trip is recommended. All the hard work will pay off as we descend from mountain passes, viewing the incredible surroundings of some of these lagoons.

As our trip begins to wind down, we will ascend Filo del Capitan and bask in the spectacular views of some of the mountains and glaciers we have just passed through, including Monte Tronador. On the final day, we will have the option of climbing Mirada del Doctor for a quick encore, before making our way to Pampa Linda.

From this idyllic village we will transfer back to Bariloche and bid one another farewell.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this tranquil and scenic 6-day trek through the Andes in central Argentina!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy the 3-day guided ascent of Cerro Tronador near Bariloche that I guide!
