Join local UIMLA-certified mountain leader Ignacio on this hiking day from the base of Cerro Catedral to the iconic Frey Hut, in Bariloche.


1 Day

Jan - Mar, Nov, Dec




If you ask anybody in Bariloche which is the best mountain hut to visit, the answer will be the same: Frey Hut. This refuge is located in the heart of the Cerro Catedral, a big mountain surrounded by an incredible bunch of rocky towers and next to the beautiful Toncek Lagoon.

The top three reasons why I like to take my clients and friends to the Frey Hut by the Cerro Catedral ridge are:

  • Its is an easy but authentic mountain trekking;

  • You’ll cross different environments in just one day;

  • As we use ski lifts this program is suitable for beginners as well.

As for the itinerary, we’ll start early in the morning to take the ski lift at the base of the Catedral mountain and ascend 1981 meters. Once up there we’ll start the hike. We’ll walk all the way through the mountain ridge, contemplating incredible and iconic Patagonian landscapes such as Mount Tronador or the Rucacco Valley. Then we’ll descend towards the Schmoll Lagoon before arriving to the Frey Refuge.

After having lunch at the hut and spending a while appreciating the rocky spires around, we can take a bath and swim in the Toncek Lagoon (if the weather helps). Finally, we’ll descend through a beautiful Patagonian forest and return to the starting point.

So if you’re planning to come to Bariloche you cannot miss this trekking trip. Send a request and book the program for the next summer season!

Mountain Leader

Hi! My name is Ignacio Manes. Through my whole life I've worked with groups in different areas: from university teaching to mountain guiding, as a passionate mountain climber and professional guide. In this field, I've visited high summits in Mendoza and Chile, and large areas in Patagonia where I actually live with my family. As a nature lover and it's sports, I constantly explore and visit it with friends and groups which normally comes from big cities.

I'm a trekking guide who wants to take people to the self recognition space the nature offers us. OUR space. I'm convinced that our greatest happiness lays inside us, really close, waiting for a instant of peace to be discovered.
