Our starting point will be the Cerro Catedral, in Bariloche. We will trek up for about 4 hours across an easy trail. When we get to the Frey Valley and its vertical rocks, you cannot believe what you are seeing. We will spend the night in Frey Hut, with meal and bed services included.
Our second day will be more exhausting because the hike to San Martin Mountain Hut will take about 8 hours. Anyway, the trekking across the alpine valleys is amazing. We will reach the Jakob Lagoon, where we can rest and swim. We will spend the night in the hut.
Our day will start before the sunrise, with a challenging climb up to the “Cuernos del Diablo” summit, where we will reach by midday. After admiring such a viewpoint, we will return for a resting time in the Frey Hut. We will also dinner and sleep there.
We will leave the mountains and change our goals. Now it’s time for the Casalata Creek and the Mascardi Lake, after a whole day of trekking among beautiful forests and marshes. We will spend the night by the lake in our camp base.
At the beginning of the day you will have some kayak and rescue lessons so we can start our sailing adventure by water. We will paddle the glacier waters towards the east, an unbelievable experience you will never forget. We will have lunch in a lonely place called “Isla Corazon” and spend the whole day and night in a campsite on the lakeside.
During our last day of expedition, we will keep paddling those calm waters until we get to the east side of the Mascardi Lake in where this fantastic adventure finishes. At the end, we will celebrate and have a hot shower in Bariloche.
AAGM mountain guide from Argentina.
I was raised in Buenos Aires where I used to go sailing and fishing with my family during weekend and holidays. As a teenager I began traveling to Patagonia with friends to fish, hike and camp. Years later I became a rock climber and mountaineer since I wanted to asses more summits and amazing views.
At the age of 23 and after gathering a good amount of fun ascents and traverses along Patagonia, I decided to fully commit to a life in the outdoors. As a result I started my carrier at N.O.L.S. – National Outdoors Leadership School in the U.S.A. and Chile. I lead rock climbing and mountaineering trips in Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Alaska and in Aysen (Chilean Patagonia) for nine years.
In 2009 finally settled permanently in Bariloche and focused my guiding work on the Lake District Region. Here I discovered new styles of guiding and service which were good to experience and helped me grow in this profession. Now I am able to mix my background on outdoor education with the guiding world and create unique experiences for active travelers.
I take advantage of every season of the year, going mountain biking and sea-kayaking in the summer, ice-skating on alpine lakes during the Fall, back-country skiing during the Winter, rock climbing and mountaineering as soon as the Spring makes it way through the snow.
