Description

Trekking around El Chalten in Argentina is a magnificent experience. The views are absolutely breath taking, and seem to go on and on. And, on this full-day trip, I would be happy to take you on a hiking adventure that will take you all the way to the Loma del Pliegue Tumbado.

Our trip will begin in El Chalten. From there, we will trek through a forest, which we will cross through completely. After that, we will start trekking to higher altitude, ascending approximately 300 meters before reaching Loma del Pliegue Tumbado, where you can enjoy some incredible views of the Andes and the surrounding landscape. Afterwards, we will return to El Chalten.

The difficulty of this trip is moderate, as there will be some challenging parts. Furthermore, we will be covering a distance of approximately 10 kilometers, and hiking for approximately 8 hours. As a result, it is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition. Prior hiking experience is recommended as well.

Have you ever wanted to hike through the wilderness of Argentina? If so, you can’t do much better than El Chlaten. To join me on this great adventure, please send a request. I have no doubt you’ll have a great time.

I also offer a classic, 2-day, 28 kilometer trek around El Chlaten that includes a night of camping.

About the guide

I moved to El Calafate in 2001 and very soon I started practicing mountain activities, including rock climbing, skiing, hiking and trekking. In 2007, I began to work in the mountains as an assistant guide in Perito Moreno.

I finished my trekking guide course in 2011 and then, in 2015, I completed the following course to become a Mountain Guide.

I manage Zetatrek, a guiding company offering hiking and trekking trips in El Chaltén and Los Glaciares National Park. I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will do it. All the guides in the team are professionally certified, and hold the required permits to guide.
