A hiking adventure around the circuit of Cerro Huemul, El Chaltén, during 4 days. You cannot miss this exciting experience!
Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Oct, Nov, Dec
If you love trekking, Cerro Huemul Circuit is for you. It is located in El Chaltén, a town in the southern part of the Cordillera de Los Andes in Santa Cruz Province, Argentina. Indeed, Cerro Huemul is a vantage point to look down part of the Argentina Patagonia.
Cerro Huemul also offers many hiking trails and what is even more encouraging, in none of them we will need to use technical equipment. These routes do not require permits but if we want, we can register at the gateway of Los Glaciares National Park.
I propose to you the following itinerary.
We leave El Chaltén and head towards Cerro Pliegue Tumbado. Here we will climb down and trek for 5 or 6 hours along to get to Laguna Toro. We will spend a night of free camping there.
Day 2: Ascent to Paso del Viento
From Laguna Toro we climb up to Paso del Viento. Once there, we have to climb down to spend the night in the hut. In this part of the trip we will start to see the Patagonian Ice Cap, which turns the journey into an exciting experience.
Day 3: Resting day
During our resting day we get nearer the South Patagonian Ice Cap to have a better view and if the weather allows, touch it!
We hike trough the southeast ridge for 6 or 7 hours until we reach Huemul Pass. It is a great viewpoint of Lake Viedma and its glacier.
Day 5: Return to El Chaltén
We return climbing down to Bahia de Los Pantanos. Then walking from that bay to Bahia Tunel about 16 km (3 h). Finally a van will take us to El Chalten, where the trip ends.
The South Patagonian Ice Cap and all the extension of Viedma Glacier (the country's biggest glacier) are waiting for you. I look forward to your contact, so we start together the magical circuit of Cerro Huemul. I love this area, and I can also take you on a 80 km circuit in the South Continental Ice Cap.
We will sleep in tents.
The price includes: VHF radio, first aid kit.
Previous experience: just the will to do a trekking with encampment, you must be able to carry backpacks of 50 or 60 lts (15 kg aprox).
In El Chaltén.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
