Enjoy an amazing 3-day summer rock climbing and hiking tour around the Frey Hut. Do it with Jorge, local IFMGA-certified mountain guide.



3 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec




I am happy to invite you to live 3 unforgettable days around the Frey Hut.

As you may know, Frey is one of the best mountain huts in Patagonia. It lies in the peaceful wilderness of the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Furthermore, the alpine landscape, its beautiful granite spires as well as the wide variety of climbs make Frey one of the best areas to practice rock climbing.

During this 3-day climbing tour we will first hike into the Toncek Lagoon's Valley, which is 1700 meters high. Then it will be time to practice some rock climbing in the different spires that the Frey Valley has for you. Among them you will find these multi-pitch routes:

  • Frey or El Tonto Needles,

  • La Vieja,

  • Campanile,

  • Cohete Lunar,

  • El Abuelo.

If you want to join me on this summer adventure around the Frey Hut keep in mind you have to be an intermediate climber with a good fitness level. However, there are also many other itineraries suitable for beginners. All the climbing routes in the area are protected with bolts and modern safety estructures. You have no excuses!!!

The best part of this experience is that by the end of the day we can go for a refreshing bath on the waters of the Toncek Lagoon. Then we'll have dinner and sleep in the warm and cozy Frey Hut.

This amazing program can be done from September to April, during the spring and summer. There are many other interesting trips in these seasons, like this 3-day climbing tour in Mount Tronador that I also offer.

About the guide


My name is Jorge, and I am one of the first IFMGA/UIAGM Certified Mountain Guides in Argentina. I got my full UIAGM-IFMGA certification in 2005. I was one of the pioneer mountain guides in Argentina and Chile to introduce Ski Mountaineering and Backcountry Skiing back in 1999.

In 2009, I became one of the first Argentines to work as a Ski Guide on the Antarctic Peninsula and ski peaks in that area. I helped, co-worked and guided ski athletes from Salomon, Arcteryx, Smith and the North face, such as Xavier de Le Rue, Luca de Bari, Eric Hjorleifson and other pro-athletes of the ski industry in the production of ski films in Argentina and Chile.

I have been guiding across Patagonia for more than 15 years now. In the past few years I have also guided in Antarctica, Norway and Iceland.

Patagonia is my home. This is where I started to develop most of my guiding skills and experiences at an early age. Today, I spend half of the year guiding overseas, and the other half guiding in Argentina and Chile.

Regarding my personal resume as a guide and sportsman, some of the highlights include classic Granite climbs in Yosemite National Park like the Half Dome Regular NW face in a day and Sentinel Rock (Herbert- Chouinard route); several ski mountaineering expeditions to Alaska including the inner Chugach range; the Wrangell's-Saint Elias range, spending two weeks in a tent in the Icefield, skiing couloirs and faces as much as we could. Other great mountaineering expeditions I went on include:
- A remote expedition to Mariano Moreno in the Patagonian Icefield
- Several rock climbs in Europe, like the Dolomites, Slovakia, French and Swiss Alps, and Spain
- Guiding the Mont Blanc ascent on skis
- Technical classic ice/rock Rebuffat- Terray on Pelerins in Chamonix
- Frendo Spur in Chamonix
- Fitz Roy and other satellites spires in Patagonia

I happily spend a lot of my time on skis, and guiding mostly technical backcountry and volcanoes in Patagonia.

I’m fluent in Spanish and English.

What people are saying about Jorge Kozulj

Everything was great from Explore-share communication to communication with Jorge to the guide I had for two days (Thanks Kiki!). Plenty of flexibility and services.

This ascent was a lifelong dream come true! It was by far the best ski trip I've ever done. Everything went smoothly with the organization Explore-Share's organization and all the preparation and necessary gear were clearly detailed beforehand, and I finally reached the long-awaited summit of Mt. Tronador, thanks in large part to Jorge's expert guiding. He did a really outstanding job at guiding me safely and professionally all the way. He found the right rhythm, knew when to push me to go hard in the tough sections and when to take it easy and relax. It was an experience I'll never forget and I will definitely be contacting him again for more ascents around Bariloche! Thank you Jorge!!

The trip was really successful. I got an excellent guide Pablo, I am sorry that didn't know his surname. Pablo is very professional and responsible guide. He knows an area perfectly, very attentive and caring in relation to client. Thanks to him I did evan more than really could. I learnt with him a new ski techniques and my ski level really rose. Patagonian mountains is a place of strongest beauty and I think that to spend there even a few days is a rare success. I surely recommend Andescross company and guide Pablo for turing skiing in Patagonia.

This was my first experience of a backcountry and Patagonian skiing and it could not have been a more rewarding experience. Unbelievable scenery, fantastic skiing and great fun. Jorge is the consummate host, able to combine a group of mixed ability fitness and experience without ever compromising on the level of challenge: guide, teacher, asador, guitar master and now friend, I cannot recommend Andescross highly enough



August, 2017

Just do it. Go for yourself. See snow in South America, see the Andes, see Patagonia. I had ski tour 3 days and 2 night in Baguales park near Bariloche with Jorge and loved the experience. It was a good season.



August, 2017

I can't say enough good things about AndesCross and my recent 7 day backcountry hut tour. Trip of a life time in all aspects. We skied incredible terrain, experienced the local culture and had an amazing time as a group. Everyone had the opportunity to achieve bigger ski objectives while staying safe. Jorge made sure everyone in our group had a great experience, both while skiing and while in Bariloche. None of the pictures do justice. Everything was perfect. I've done a number of similar trips in the US and Canada and would rank this at the very top of my list.

Jorge was a phenomenal mountain guide. He put us in some great snow and kept everyone safe. He is personally a great guy and went out of his way to make sure everyone had a great time. I'm always happy to serve as a reference for anyone considering a trip with Andescross. Spent two days in Baguales. Snow as incredible and the food was tier I. A truly unique, top tier experience. Hundreds of acres of private ski land in the Andes provided a unique, isolated touring experience. Spent four days at Frey Hut. Jorge knew all the tips and tricks to make the stay very enjoyable. We toured up to a few peaks every day. Made lots of friends from all walks of life. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat, and hopefully take more time to do a few volcanoes later in the season. Next on the list - Antarctica or Norway with Andescross!



August, 2016

Jorge is fantastic guide, he helped us with all the logistics of our two week trip as well as provided for lots of flexibility for us with all aspects of the trip including terrain, ability level, snow conditions and weather. He truly found us the best powder in Patagonia and was an excellent teacher as well for anything you wanted to learn about the alpine touring, avalanche conditions, and the Patagonia backcountry. We had a terrific time in Challhuaco and Baguales and would highly recommend his exceptionally professional organization.



May, 2016

Andescross arranged weeks ski touring and guiding in the middle of November for me and a couple of my friends. We had an most amazing time - starting off with some hiking around Bariloche and then heading up Mt Tronador, followed by a drive around the two National Parks, down to the Chilean border. Everything was very well organised and it was a truly memorable experience.



January, 2016

I had a great time in Bariloche and went with Andescross to climb in Frey and also ascend Cerro Tronador along with a friend I was travelling with. Jorge is awesome and made the whole experience enjoyable. His love of this beautiful area comes across and he was very accommodating with us, working around the weather (it snowed one night at Frey) and maximizing the amount and quality of climbing we did. He also took us to Cerro Lopez to get one last climb in since we had minimal good weather up at Frey. Jorge is a great guide and I was very comfortable climbing with him. After a couple day's rest we ascended Cerro Tronador with Nahuel. It is a great glacier climb with a spicy finish. A pretty demanding ascent and descent, but well worth the view from Pico Argentina. I would definitely go climbing with Jorge and Andescross again and hope to soon!
