I bring you a great trekking option in the Patagonia, Argentina. The Paso del Viento 3-day trekking traverse is a hiking challenge to one of the most amazing viewpoints of the South Patagonian Ice field: the Viedma Glacier, the birth of Upsala and, as a backdrop, the imposing Mariano Moreno range.
This trek requires a good physical condition. In addition, my experience and knowledge of the region will assure the best guided traverse. Thus, if you want to know more about this trip, keep reading the following itinerary:
Our meeting point will be in El Chaltén town. Then, we’ll have a briefing about the program and the checking of your gear. At the afternoon, the hike starts in direction to Laguna Toro campsite, where we’ll spend the night.
- Total hiking time: 6 hours.
- Altitude change: 500 meters.
Early in the morning we leave the camp towards the Tunnel River. Depending on the waters conditions we’ll cross it by foot or using a fixed cable and harnesses.
Then, we can hiking up in direction to Paso del Viento. On that way we have to face some moraine and rocky terrains. Once we are at the pass you cannot believe such a viewpoint.

Finally, we’ll descent to the base camp at Laguna Toro again.
