Type of Trip
The Patagonian winter is a great time to enjoy some alternative activities to ski. Therefore, I think El Chaltén and more precisely Laguna Torre are perfect places for a snowshoeing day.
Laguna Torre lies within the famous Los Glaciares National Park, 10 km from El Chaltén, in Santa Cruz. Its waters are the result of the thawing of the region. In addition, it is an excellent place to do outdoor activities as its surroundings are amazing. Snowy peaks everywhere and the imposing presence of the eastern face of the Cerro Torre are some of them.
This snowshoe walk I am proposing is suitable for all levels of people. It is not necessary to have previous experience in hiking or mountain trekking. You will only need a good health and a reasonable physical condition. The total duration of the walk will be around 7 hours, reaching an altitude change of no more than 250 meters.
The perfect season to come to Laguna Torre is from May till September.
So, hurry up and contact me so you can book your place. It will be my pleasure to be your guide in this amazing trip!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
About the Guide
Since 1985 we have been operating the best trekking programs in southern Patagonia. We are always looking for new itineraries, unique expeditions, little known spots, and we offer the highest quality outdoor activities in the area... A good example of this are our classic Ice Field Expeditions that have been running with great success for many years.
Our mountaineering origin made us choose this pristine part of the Andes; Southern Patagonia is a place ruled by immense glaciers, rough weather, and mountains such as Mt Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, a place not to miss.
We hope you join us in one of our programs so our guides can show you what Patagonia is about. We offer the best hotels, lodges and camping arrangements to suit everyone.
