Jan, Feb, Oct, Nov, Dec
This time, I want to invite you to a trekking expedition across Paso Vuriloche, the Andean forest and of course, the best glaciers of the region.
They will be 8 amazing days of hike that starts in Pampa Linda, Argentina. During the trip, we will walk among the Valdivian forest, lakes and waterfalls. Our ending point will be in the Chilean lake of Todos los Santos.
If you want to know more about this trekking trip, please find here below the complete itinerary:
Our trail-head will be Pampa Linda, near the border between Argentina and Chile. Once we are in a waterfall called Saltillo de las Nalcas, we’ll hike towards the Manso Glacier. We’ll cross to the Chilean side across the Paso Vuriloche. Our first camp will be set up at Mallin Chileno (1.300 meters high).
Trekking Time: 5 hours
Distance: 15 Km
Altitude gain: 600 m
Today we’ll climb to Mount Tronador hut at 2.200 meters above sea level. We’ll return to Mallin Chileno cabins.
Trekking time: 5 hours
Distance: 10 km
Altitude gain: 900 m
We leave the camp behind in direction to the west. We must hike down across a burned forest that will lead us to the Valdivian one.
After some serious trekking hours we’ll be finally at our camp. We’ll spend the night in a comfortable house of the family Oyarzo. From there, we will enjoy the best views of the Patagonia.
Trekking time: 6 hours
Distance: 10 km
Altitude gain: – 700 m (strong descent)
Across an easy climb we’ll be at La Piedra del Buitre Pass. After that rocky path we continue on a wider road until we arrive to Leti Hot Springs. It’s time for a rest but we must be careful because the hot waters can reach 75 °C! We can also swim in a cold stream or mix both waters in order to obtain the perfect temperature.
Trekking time: 4 hours
Distance: 8 km
Altitude gain: – 250 m
Today we will rest in Termas de Leti.
We’ll start the classic Chilean “horse trail”. It is a valley with muddy paths (specially in rainy days) and lower temperatures.
Trekking time: 7 hours
Distance: 16 km
A similar terrain than the day before with the plus of wading 3 rivers. Four hours later, we will be finally in the Cayutue Lake. We continue walking along the lake until we are in one of its bay, where we’ll rest.
Trekking time: 6 hours
Distance: 15 km
During the last day we will cross the Cayutue River by boat and then, continue hiking up to the final point, the Cayutue Landing on Todos los Santos Lake.
A last sailing in direction to Petrohue Port to celebrate the end of such an amazing trekking program.
Trekking time: 3 hours
Distance: 8 Km
AAGM mountain guide from Argentina.
I've been going to the mountains since I was very young, and became a guide in 1995. I always felt at home whenever walking in any place in the Andes range, or surfing in the Chilean coast.
I live in Bariloche, and have plenty experience guiding and working with people from all around the world.
I speak spanish, english and german.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
