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!
