Come with Luis, an Argentine professional Mountain Guide (AAGM-PNL) in this hut to hut trekking tour of 5 days. Reach the best refuges of the Andes Mountain Range starting from the amazing city of San Carlos de Bariloche!
This program I am proposing today is one of the classic treks in the Nahuel Huapi National Park, in the city of San Carlos de Bariloche.
I love to take my clients and friends to this trekking tour because it’s a great opportunity to reach the best huts of the Andes. During this trek we’ll conquer the following refuges:
The Frey mountain hut;
Jacob mountain hut;
Laguna Negra hut;
And the Lopez mountain hut.
This trekking tour will delight your eyes with the most beautiful views of the Cap, Ilión and Cretón lakes. In addition we’ll also enjoy amazing viewpoints of Mount Tronador and many volcanoes like the Osorno, Puntiagudo, Puyehue and Lanin.
At the end of this description you will find a complete day-by-day itinerary of the trek. Finally, let me share with you the list of necessary equipment you must bring:
Sleeping bag (- 5 degrees)
Waterproof trekking boots
3 pairs of socks
2 Long sleeved T-shirts

Meeting in Bariloche. In the morning we’ll have a talk about the following days and we’ll check the equipment. Then, we will move to the base of the Cerro Catedral, where the trek begins. After around 5 hours we’ll reach the Frey Mountain Hut.
This day we’ll leave in direction to the Jakob refuge where we’ll spend the night. We’ll cross some high lagoons and then, descend to the Rucaco Valley until we are in the hut. Total hiking time: 8 hours.
On this day we’ll ascend to the Cerro Navidad where we will use ropes to secure the passes through the rocks. Then we’ll descend to the valley to finish with the snails that will take us to Laguna Negra Hut. Overnight stay in there. Today we will walk around 10 hours!
After breakfast we will cross the Laguna Negra (Black Lagoon) to ascend to the edges of Cerro Negro with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. We will then leave the Cerro Bailey Willis, descending to the Goye Valley and ascending the channel of the tourist peak. After that we will continue with the descent to the hut. Overnight at López Hut. Hiking time: 8 hours.

The not included meals (like dinner) will be consumed in the huts since they have such services and the cost will be assumed by each client.
Argentine professional Mountain Guide (AAGM-PNL)
I was born in the Andes area, North Patagonia, and I am a certified guide from the Argentina Mountain Guides Association.
I specialize in guided tours to Lanin volcano, by the normal route or other alternative routes and I also have the authorization of Lanin National Park since 2003. I have done between 30 and 40 ascents to Lanin per season, which gives me the experience and security to plan the safest programs with the best services.
In addition to Lanin, I also specialize in guided tours to Domuyo and Tromen volcanos, and traverses in the San Martin de los Andes area.
I am also an Ecomed lifeguard, and I have done the rescue courses in a leadership and natural environment.
My rating for the winter ascent of Lanin volcano is 10/10 in every possible aspect. Luis organized perfectly well the whole ascent and assembled a great team of guides (Ramiro, Gabriel and Jonathan) who came with him to the mountain. The day before, we met in San Martin to check the equipment. On day one, after the hike up to the refuge, we went over the techniques and gear needed for the summit day (self-arrest, avalanche safety equipment, etc.). Summit day is demanding, but exceptional! The views from the summit include Villarica, Llaima and Copahue volcanoes to the north, and Tronador, Puntiagudo and Osorno to the south. Booking through Explore-Share was very smooth and easy, the customer service is the best!
Luis es un guía absolutamente maravilloso, con un conocimiento de la montaña superlativo que nos dio seguridad y permitió disfrutar incluso con condiciones climáticas difíciles. Tiene un gran manejo de grupo, firme y amable a la vez, con sentido del humor y gran amor por la naturaleza. Los seis días de la transvolcánica fueron mágicos y estoy a la expectativa de una nueva travesía.
