A 8-hiking-expedition among the Patagonia Ice Field up to Mount Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. An unforgettable trip with the company of certified guides.
Jan, Feb, Oct, Nov, Dec
The Patagonia Ice field is one of the largest frozen surfaces of the entire world, after Antarctica and Greenland.
If you want to participate of this Patagonia Ice field expedition you must have previous hiking experience. Physical shape is also a needed because you will carry your own 15-kg backpack.
The estimate duration of the trip is 8 days but I will add 2 extra days is case of bad weather. The true is that Patagonia region has a very unstable climate. I will decide the dynamic of the trip according to those variables.
Here I leave a program of this Patagonia Ice field 8-day expedition in Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre.
DAY 1: CHALTEN AND TRAILHEAD
We will meet in El Chalten where we will start the hike towards Electrico River. Once we cross it, we keep hiking up to La Playita. Total walking time: 7 hours. Lunch and dinner included.
DAY 2: PASO MARCONI
We will walk from La Playita to Paso Marconi. This day we will hike about 10 hours and we’ll gain an altitude of 1.000 meters. Included breakfast, lunch and dinner.

AAGM Mountain Guide from Argentina.
I´ve climbed all along Patagonia, reaching summits such as Cerro Torre, Cerro Fitz Roy, and it’s range. As sport climber I also faced challenges in different spots in Europe and USA.
After many years guiding, I also handle the logistic of the expeditions, and I like to give the best services to the people I guide.
I live and guide mostly in El Chaltén area, and I know every corner of the National Park. I like to plan every detail of the expeditions, and to propose customized programs according to the request and needs of each client.
We wish we could have Simon as our guide on every trek we do. His mountaineering experience and extensive knowledge of the area was impressive and definitely enhanced the trek for us. On top of this, we got along great with Simon and appreciate his easy going personality and sense of humor. We will definitely request Simon as our guide for the next hike we do from El Chalten!
