Description

For 3 unforgettable days, I would like to guide you to some of the most amazing places around El Chalten.

Located in Argentinean Patagonia, El Chalten is a wondrous place. It is full of incredible valleys, glaciers, lakes, rivers and so much more. And on this trip, you will get to visit the Laguna Pollone, Mount Fitz Roy (3,359m), and the Cerro Torre (3,128m).

On the first day of this trip, following a 30 minute transfer from El Chalten to the Rio Electrico, we will trek to the Piedra del Fraile, where we will spend the night in a refugio. After enjoying some lunch, we will make our way to the stunning Laguna Pollone, where you can enjoy some incredible views.

On the second day of the trip, we will trek to the Laguna de los Tres, the Blanco River and the Piedras Blancas glacier until we reach the Poicenot campsite, where we will camp for the night. You will get to enjoy amazing views of Mount Fitz Roy throughout the day.

On the final day of the trip, we will wake up early, so you can enjoy splendid sun rise views of Fitz Roy. After breakfast, we will trek toward the Laguna Torre, the nearby glacier and the Cerro Torre. After you’ve admired the area, we will make our way back to El Chalten through the Fitz Roy valley.

We will be trekking for approximately 6-8 hours per day, covering a distance of approximately 15 kilometers. As a result, it is important that you are in good physical condition, and have prior trekking experience.

On this 3 day trip, you will get to see the best of the El Chalten area. To join me, just send me a request.

Would you like to do some climbing in northern Argentina? Then join me on this 4 day adventure to the summit of the Cerro Penitentes, near the city of Mendoza.
