Description

Would you like to enjoy a stunning hiking expedition in Patagonia? Come to El Chalten and join me to explore the Huemul Circuit on this 4-day trip!

El Chalten is a beautiful village in the Argentinean Patagonia, in the Santa Cruz Province. Surrounded by impressive peaks and deep-blue glacial lakes, this area is known as Argentina’s trekking capital.

The Huemul Circuit starts near El Chalten town and traverses around Mount Huemul. It is one of the most popular treks in the región. On this hiking adventure, we will cross different types of terrains -snow, glaciers and moraines- with a rich and varied flora and fauna!

With elevations ranging from 800 to 1600 mts, this unique route will take us to amazing spots such as the Paso de los Vientos hut and Bahia de los Tempanos. For more information, you can check the complete itinerary below.

Please note that for this tour you need a good fitness level. No previous hiking experience is required, but you should be prepared for long hiking days (5 to 8 hours) carrying your backpack (you can hire porters).

So, if you are up for an unforgettable hiking adventure in El Chalten, Argentina, please contact me. Let’s try the Huemul Circuit and explore a scenic area in Patagonia!

I can also take you to Paso del Vent, another Patagonia highlight, starting from El Chalten. Check it out here.

About the guide

guide profile img

AAGM Mountain Guide from Argentina.

I´ve climbed all along Patagonia, reaching summits such as Cerro Torre, Cerro Fitz Roy, and it’s range. As sport climber I also faced challenges in different spots in Europe and USA.

After many years guiding, I also handle the logistic of the expeditions, and I like to give the best services to the people I guide.

I live and guide mostly in El Chaltén area, and I know every corner of the National Park. I like to plan every detail of the expeditions, and to propose customized programs according to the request and needs of each client.
