Description

Join me on this once-in-a-lifetime trek from El Chalten! This trip is the best way to experience the astounding Southern Patagonian Ice Field for those with only some trekking experience. This 3-day trek is an accesible way to experience the Los Glacieres National Park and take in all of its unique views and landscapes.

During our journey, we will trek more than 30 kilometers and reach heights as high as 600 meters. We will trek along the lower part of the Tunel Glacier and zip-line across Tunel River! We even have a chance to see pieces of the Tunel Glacier break off right before our eyes.

On this trip, we will explore the marvelous Paso del Viento, which rises up to 1400 meters above sea level. From this summit, you can see the top of Videma Glacier. This is the largest glacier in all of Argentina! We will also see el Cordón Mariano Moreno and various other snowy mountaintops.

This trekking combines vast steppe, lush Andean Patagonian forest, majestic rivers, colossal glaciers and serene mountain areas. This is the perfect combination to see all the diverse beauty that Patagonia has to offer. Book today and you will leave this trip with memories that will last a lifetime!
