Our day begins by following the Viedma Glacier. From above, we will spend the day outlining it with our trail, and appreciate the many amazing views from nearly every angle.
We will be accompanied by pristine lakes on our hike, and stop for a delightful lunch before a dedicated trek up. Keep your eyes peeled for condors as we make our way through the Huemul Pass, where a large “condorera” is located.
Heading into our next camp at Bahia de los Tempanos, we have a steep descent through the forest before reaching the face of the glacier and the crystal waters of Viedma Lake.

I graduated in Buenos Aires as Universitary proffesional in tourism and as a Mountain Guide in Mendoza province. I started working in adventure activities, horseback riding and mountain ascents. Then i moved to Patagonia that was my dream place for living and thanks to this profession it became in my place for working and personal development.
After several years of experience working in these mountains and numerous trips around the world looking for adventures and experience, I managed to unite both professions in an objective, so Serac Expeditions arose. In the last 15 years working with Serac, I have organized trips for thousands of people and personally guided hundreds of them in diverse and remote places in Patagonia, Chile, Peru and Bolivia.
Today my passion is not only guiding but also organizing special and personalized trips for people who enjoy exploring in nature and at the same time push their limits. My ideal is to provide a safe trip, spend a good time togheter with my clients and be flexible to provide a great experience and memories. To do this I work with a group of guides that share my ideals and way of working.
