Description

Welcome to this trekking trip in the Challhuaco Valley!

As you may know, the Challhuaco Valley is south-east of the Nahuel Huapi National Park, 18 km from Bariloche City.

It is a really beautiful valley surrounded by the Nireco, Carbón, Ventana and Challhuaco mounts. Its amazing landscapes and native flora and fauna diversity make this adventure a trip of a lifetime!

As for the itinerary, our starting point will be Bariloche, from where a transfer will take us to the Challhuaco Valley, near the Neumeyer Hut. From this point we'll begin the walk along a low difficulty trail. It is a really nice route since we can admire a beautiful high forest on the way.

After a few minutes we will reach the first viewpoint of the hike. A panoramic scenery of Los Patos Lagoon. The walk continues until a detour, where we must take the trail that goes straight towards the Green Lagoon (Laguna Verde).

Once in the lagoon, you'll have the opportunity to appreciate the beauty and peaceful of its deep emerald color waters. This lake is also home of a kind of "micro-endemic frog" unique in the world.

And if you have more energy we can continue walking 15 minutes more by a trail that goes into a forest. We will then get to the Pedregoso Viewpoint, from where we will have a perfect panoramic view of the City of Bariloche and the Nahuel Huapi Lake. Now it's time to return down to our starting point by the same route.

About the guide

I’m a Physical Education Teacher, Ski Patroller and AAGM- UIMLA Mountain Guide. I was born in S. C. de Bariloche (Patagonia). I started “to play in the mountains” in early age, skiing and exploring trekking trails and the most emblematic shelters around Bariloche.

After graduating I began working in environmental education with children and adults in the Club Andino Bariloche and in an educational NGO dedicated to tourism in natural environments. I worked several years in Europe as a ski patroller, and currently work as a teacher in the Argentinian Ski Patrollers School (EASP). I also worked as avalanche consultor in companies.

I have various certifications, among them: WFR (Wilderness First Responder), Lifeguard Equipie (Andorran Red Cross) and Observer Nivo- Meteo (ACNA "per the Association of neu coneixement I allaus them") and the AIARE Level II (Analyzing snow stability and avalanche Hazard course).

Last years, I’ve been working between ski stations and guiding in big and amazing mountains in Patagonia, Alaska, Bolivia and Peru. I’m a professional outdoor woman and mountain lover who appreciate the opportunity of guide new clients in the surroundings of my home: “Bariloche, in North Patagonia”.
