Cerro Torre and its 3.133 meters are unmistakable in the eyes of any mountaineer.

The Cerro Torre is located in the East of the South Patagonia Ice Field, just in the border between Argentina and Chile. Los Glaciares Nationa Park and the Patagonian Ice Field are two of the best places of the world for ice mountaineering.

And that’s what I offering you: a 3-day trip hiking on glacial soil. By the end of the trip we will reach to Fitz Roy Massif and Cerro Torre.

If you want to be part of the team I’m going to lead, you need:

  • Know how to use crampons

  • Previous experience

  • You will also need good physical shape

This 3-day expedition to Cerro Torre starts in El Chaltén, Santa Cruz province. Here you have the complete itinerary:


Once we have our equipment checked we’ll move towards the trail-head and walk for more than 2 hours up to Fitz Roy River. We will cross it by a zip line. And here comes a moraine and forest land until we put our crampons on and start hiking through pure glacier.

By the end of the day, we’ll be finally in our first base camp known as Niponino, where we will dinner and spend the night.


A magic day of hike among the two giants: on the left Cerro Torre, on the right Mount Fitz Roy. Wherever you look, you will find an ice wall. This day will consists in 5-to-7 hours of intense walk up to the base camp of Cerro Torre.


Last day of this amazing trip. We’ll disarm our camp and start the return to El Chalten. The way back is really nice. We will hike through the Grande Glacier until we are in the city of El Chaltén.

I can ensure it is one of the best Patagonian hikes. Now, you have the chance of fulfilling a great goal with the help of a certified mountain guide.

We wish we could have Simon as our guide on every trek we do. His mountaineering experience and extensive knowledge of the area was impressive and definitely enhanced the trek for us. On top of this, we got along great with Simon and appreciate his easy going personality and sense of humor. We will definitely request Simon as our guide for the next hike we do from El Chalten!
