    In this 2-days mountaineering program we propose to reach Mt. Alvear, the summit of the third highest mountain in Isla Grande of Tierra del Fuego in the Argentinean area. This includes two days and an overnight in the mountain going over the heights of the Fuegian Mountain Range.

    Itinerary:

    Day 1:

    The first day consists of five hours trekking to reach the Base Camp (BC). After setting up the tents we will practice all the necessary (crampons and piolet techniques) for the next day in which we will reach the summit. In this day trip we will walk along Lasifashaj Valley and the hanging Valley of Alvear going through Lengas and Coihues forests. The trekking finishes with a partial climbing of Monte Alvear’s side hill until we reach the BC.

    Day 2:

    On the second day, very early in the morning, we will set off from the BC to the summit. From the begging of this daytrip we will meet ourselves surrounded by the mountain environment walking through glaciers. On our way back, after having achieved the summit, we will disarm the BC and continue our march to the rout, from where we will return to Ushuaia City.

    The views, the landscape and the feelings when transiting Alvear Mount are beyond description. Contact me if you want to live this unforgettable experience!

      About the Guide

       
       

      Mountain Guide, GEM-AAGM Ski Guide, UIMLA, AIARE level 2 from Argentina.

      I was born and live in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world! I've been skiing since I was 2 years old, and competed as a ski athlete in a Nordic ski and Biathlon world ski championships, world cups and in the winter Olimpic Games Torino 2006

      In 2007 I retired from professional competitions to focus on my guiding career. I trained on rock, ice and mixed climbing skills as well as guiding techniques and became a mountain guide in 2011 at the Argentinean Mountaineering Guides Association (AAGM). In 2017 I completed the guiding courses to become also a certified Ski Mountain Guide GEM-AAGM.

      I've done a large number of technical climbs at the Darwin Range and Patagonia while many of those are new lines

      The trip was great! Sebastian\'s colleague Ignacio catered it exactly as I have envisioned the trip to be according to my skills and background experience. He was patient and helpful when I struggled in certain moments and he taught me a lot of important safety details on various aspects of the activity, which was what I expected. Overall, a fantastic three days and will definitely return if I have time next year!
