1 Day

All year


Would you like to hike up to the top of Cerro Chapelco, in the beautiful south of Argentina? Then, join me in this 1-day program in the amazing Patagonia!

Cerro Chapelco (1980 m) is a mountain within the Chapelco Range. It's located at the south of the popular ski station of the same name, in the surroundings of San Martin de los Andes. This is a small and charming village. Also, one of the favourite tourist destinations in the country.

The ascent of Cerro Chapelco will take us from 8 to 10 hours. We'll start hiking through forests of lenga. This is an autochthonous species spread in all the Patagonia. If you come in autumn, you'll see their beauty at their best. Their leaves turn to yellow, orange and red and then fall to the ground.

As we start hiking, we'll get to a pass that separates two valleys. Once there, we'll reach the foot of a snow couloir (in winter), by which we'll ascend. The terrain becomes easier after this point. Then, we'll have a great panoramic view, with all the splendor of mountains such as Cerro Tronador, Volcano Lanin and Volcano Mocho, among others.

So if you're ready for a hiking adventure in Cerro Chapelco, contact me and let's start planning! I also offer a 4-day hike to Bariloche's beautiful lakes. Check it out!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
