Description

This 9-day Southern Patagonian Ice Field expedition from El Chalten will take you to an unknown world of ice and snow.

The Southern Patagonian Ice Field is the biggest remnant of the Patagonian Ice Sheet, located south of the Andes, between Argentina and Chile. It’s the world’s second largest contiguous extra polar Ice Field.

And in this program, I will take you through the best spots on it. We’ll start from El Chalten, a beautiful small town, located at the foot of Mount Fitz Roy, in the Argentinian side of Patagonia.

There are so many amazing features in this adventure that is hard to describe them all. We’ll spend a week immersed in a kind of landscape that you’ve never seen, with panoramic views of great peaks and volcanoes. We’ll see lakes and lagoons with indescribable colors.

So join me on this incredible 9-day Southern Patagonian Ice Field expedition from El Chalten and discover an incredible Ice World at the end of the world. It’s an experience you will never forget!

And if you’re coming to El Chalten and you want to try a different adventure, please check my Fitz Roy Grand Tour: hiking, mountain bike and canoeing or my Loma del Diablo guided snowshoeing 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.
