Mount Tronador, Bariloche, 3 Day Guided Climb


Experience a memorable 3 day climb to the summit of the beautiful Mount Tronador in Argentine Patagonia, near Bariloche, with Juan, a certified guide.


3 Days

Jan - Apr, Oct - Dec




For three exciting days, I would like to guide you from Bariloche to the summit of Mount Tronador (3,491m) and back.

Mount Tronador is an amazing peak that rises high on the border between Argentina and Chile. However, despite it being on the cusp of two nations, it represents the beauty of Patagonia equally. The wilderness and natural surroundings spread out near the peak are marvellous. You will get to see lakes and rivers, valleys and forests during this trip.

Day 1 will begin in the beautiful city of Bariloche. From there, we will take a drive to Pampa Linda. Once there, we will take a 4 to 5 hour trek to the Meiling hut (1,900m), where we will spend the night.

Day 2 of the trip will start very early in the morning. After breakfast, we will start hiking on the glacier, taking advantage of the early morning firm snow. After traversing the Filo de la Vieja we will reach a large plateau. At the plateau, the terrain will get steep and windy. As a result, we will start using ropes and pitching and rope fixing our way to the magnificent Tronador summit. After you’ve enjoyed the unforgettable summit views, we will then make our way back to the Meiling hut, where we will spend the night.

Day 3 of the trip will begin with a delicious breakfast. After you’ve eaten we will make our way back to Pampa Linda, have lunch, and drive back to Bariloche.

Mount Tronador is a fantastic climb. The views, as well as the experience of attaining them is a sensational adventure. And if you would like to experience it for yourself, all you have to do is send me a request.

About the guide

Mountain Guide

I´m based in Bariloche, Patagonia, where I guide full time, mostly technical custom trips with small groups.

I started guiding in 1998, and my job took me all around the globe. In Montana, USA, where I lived for many years I worked extensively in the Rockies, guiding in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, and the Beartooths. Back to Argentina, I spend most of my time ski guiding volcanoes, rock climbing at Frey and mountaineering in Chalten and Tronador.

The rest of time I work as a Technical director at the AAGM, forming new guides, and trying to be an exciting dad for my two kids, taking advantage of the great backyard we have at home!
