Tronador Ascent

Mount Tronador, in the Argentinean Patagonia, is one of the most iconic peaks in the area! Summit it with Pablo, IFMGA certified mountain guide.


1 Day

Jan - Mar, Oct - Dec


Advanced excursions in the area of the Otto Meiling Refuge, Mount Tronador. Starting for the refuge, we'll summit the Argentine peak of one of the most iconic mountains in North Patagonia!

The excursion takes 8 to 12 hours. This will depend on the pace and the glacier conditions.

Due to the duration and character of the endeavour a good physical condition is mandatory. Besides, technical experience helps but is not a must.

The ascent starts around 4AM. Then, we cover 4.4 miles and 4430 feet across spectacular snowy glaciers and steep ridges. We reach the summit around noon. After a peek from the top the descent starts using the same route to get back to the refuge. Hopefully, we arrive not later than 3PM.

For operational and safety reasons there is a limit of two clients per guide. Another guide can join us in case of a larger group.

In this 1-day program, we go to the summit of the Argentinean Peak of Mt. Tronador from the Otto Meiling Refuge. You must do on your own the hike up from Pampa Linda to the refuge, where we'll meet. You must sleep there the night before because on summit day we start early in the morning. The path that goes up from Pampa Linda to the Meiling refuge is well marked, and you shouldn't have trouble doing it on your own if you have some previous experience in mountain trekking.

In any case, let me know if you are interested in reaching the top of one of the most iconic mountains of Bariloche region!

Great experience ! Amazing views of Cerro Tronador and Bariloche city. The guide, Pablo was really good. The activity is very recommendable !! Thank you Pablo and Explore Share!



It was an amazing trip!! We had no experience in paragliding but the guides made us feel very very safe, they have a lot of experience and are very professionals. If you are in Bariloche, don't miss the chance to fly with them. And also the Explore-Share team was always willing to help. 10/10!!



The paragliding experience was unbelievable! Getting to see Bariloche and it's surrounding lake and mountains was breathtaking. I would definitely do this again. Pablo was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgable and had a lot of experience paragliding. He gave clear instructions on how to take off and made you feel safe every step of the away. Throughout the trip, he will capture pics and videos for you to take home. He was very friendly and always looked out for your best interest.
