Our starting point will be Bariloche. Early in the morning we’ll move to our trail-head in Cerro Catedral. We’ll hike above the Gutierrez Lake until we are in the Van Titter Stream, where we’ll lunch and rest for a while.

We have lunch in the middle of the forest and then we continue hiking until we’re in the Brecha Negra. It’s a mountain pass that will lead us to San Martin Mountain Hut, our home of today.

We start walking among the Colonia Suiza Valley until we are at Black Lagoon hut. We’ll set up our camp there and sleep in tents.
We’ll hike down into La Chata Valley. Then, we climb to the CAB Lagoon across an outback route. And there we establish our new campsite.

I live in Bariloche, and have plenty experience guiding and working with people from all around the world.
