Description

Welcome to a memorable 2-day Andean adventure through the famous Paso de la Nubes. A hiking trip for all levels of people!

This Paso de las Nubes Trek is a great option to discover some of the secret wonders that Patagonia has for you. In addition, it is a very flexible itinerary since we can leave from Pampa Linda to Frias Lake and Puerto Blest or in the opposite way.

During our 2-day expedition we will cross the famous Paso de Las Nubes (Clouds Pass in English). It is located at 1335 meters above sea level from where we can contemplate the most perfect panoramic view.

The Mount Tronador stands out with its imposing glacial landscape in the west. In the east we'll see the Cerro Constitución. The Frias Valley will be to the north and the Alerce Valley to the south. Everywhere you look, there will be something captivating your eyes.

At the end of this page you'll find more details about the day by day itinerary. Keep in mind that although it's not necessary any technical experience, you must have a good fitness level. We'll walk several hours per day.

And if you have some extra days in Bariloche let me also recommend this 5-day hike from Colonia Suiza to Pampa Linda. I have no doubts you'll fall in love with its forests and green valleys!

So, if you're planning to come to Patagonia do not hesitate to contact me. I can help you organize this fantastic trip to Paso de las Nubes!

Itinerary

Day 1: Pampa Linda - Paso de las Nubes - Agostino Rocca Hut

The trail begins in Pampa Linda. The first part is the same that people use to go to the Meiling Hut and the Castaño Overa viewpoint. After the first 3 km, we’ll cross the Castaño Overa River and continue walking until we are in a crossroad. At this point we must turn right to enter the Alerce Valley in direction to Paso de las Nubes. We will hike next to the Alerce River for a few hours until we cross it and reach a big forest of Coihues trees. From here begins a switchbacks ascent to the Paso de las nubes and the Agostino Rocca Hut. We’ll have rest and enjoy a excellent home made dinner at the hut. Distance: 12 km/Estimated time: 4-6 hours.

Day 2: Frias River - Puerto Blest- Puerto Pañuelo

We’ll descend through a path for about 300 meters. After crossing a rocky area we will enter inside the forest again. Now we’ll start walking on a trail that goes along the east bank of the Frias River. We’ll continue hiking for about 3 hours until we finally cross the river. We’ll continue for 1.5 km until we reach the southern shore of the Frias Lake. At this point we are next to one of the many borders between Argentina and Chile. Here we will need to take a boat to cross the lake. Finally a bus will connect us with the west cost of the Nahuel Huapi Lake in Puerto Blest, where a bigger boat will take us to Puerto Pañuelo in Bariloche City.

Mountain Leader

I’m a Physical Education Teacher, Ski Patroller and AAGM- UIMLA Mountain Guide. I was born in S. C. de Bariloche (Patagonia). I started “to play in the mountains” in early age, skiing and exploring trekking trails and the most emblematic shelters around Bariloche.

After graduating I began working in environmental education with children and adults in the Club Andino Bariloche and in an educational NGO dedicated to tourism in natural environments. I worked several years in Europe as a ski patroller, and currently work as a teacher in the Argentinian Ski Patrollers School (EASP). I also worked as avalanche consultor in companies.

I have various certifications, among them: WFR (Wilderness First Responder), Lifeguard Equipie (Andorran Red Cross) and Observer Nivo- Meteo (ACNA "per the Association of neu coneixement I allaus them") and the AIARE Level II (Analyzing snow stability and avalanche Hazard course).

Last years, I’ve been working between ski stations and guiding in big and amazing mountains in Patagonia, Alaska, Bolivia and Peru. I’m a professional outdoor woman and mountain lover who appreciate the opportunity of guide new clients in the surroundings of my home: “Bariloche, in North Patagonia”.

We had a different guide Mercedes at the last minute as Camilla’s daughter was sick. She was very nice and gave us lots of information. We did an up and back walk to Frey Hut and did not go up the cable car and along the ridge which was the circular planned route. It was raining in the morning which was the reason. The weather cleared as expected. It was a shame that this could not have done the walk the other way round. We are grateful Camilla organised another guide for us so that we were able to hike.

Camila has excellent knowledge of the area and was enjoyable to be with. Lunch was so so.

A tough but thoroughly rewarding hike. The challenges of the trek are matched by the stunning views, unique flora, and wonderful people you meet along the way.
