Description

Paso del Viento is an unmissable point of the South Patagonian Ice Field.

During this expedition we will walk on glacial ground until we reach Paso del Viento, from where we will admire one of the best viewpoint of the region.

It is a unique opportunity of discovering the hidden secrets behind Fitz Roy Massif, Cerro Torre and Paso del Viento. Are you coming?

It will be a 6-day trip of pure hiking that starts crossing the Pass of Las Agochonas up to Laguna Toro. This trail will lead us directly to Paso del Viento, a place that seems like a dream.

If you want more details, keep reading the following itinerary:

DAY 1: El Chaltén – Niponino

Once we meet each other and check our backpacks, we start the route towards Fitz Roy River. We will cross it by zip line. Then, we’ll enter in a glacial ground that we’ll overcome using crampons.

After more than 5 hours, we are finally in our base camp where we dinner and rest: Niponino.

DAY 2: Cerro Torre base camp

After breakfast we start waking among Monte Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. During all this day we will hike surrounded by huge ice walls. It will be awesome! Total walking time of this day: 5-7 hours.

DAY 3: Niponino- Torre Laguna Camp

When we return to Niponino, we start a new hike of about 9 hours up to the base camp of Laguna Torre. A total altitude change of 500 meters for today.

DAY 4: Las Agachonas Pass – Laguna Toro Camp

We leave Laguna Torre base camp early in the morning. We will walk intensely to Las Agachonas Pass. After 8 hours we will be at Laguna Toro base camp, a beautiful place to set up tents and spend the night.

DAY 5: Paso del Viento

A great day awaits us. We’ll gain an altitude of 800 meters to reach Paso del Viento. From there, we will have one of the best views of all the Patagonian Ice Field. Then, we return to Laguna Toro camp to rest.

DAY 6: Laguna Toro – El Chaltén

Last day! We leave Laguna Toro behind and move to El Chalten by the same route.

Of course, it will be necessary counting on previous mountain experience and knowing how to use crampons. As you can see, there are several walking hours per day, so good physical shape is also an excluding condition.
