Description

It will be an incredible trip in which you will walk on the Patagonia ice field and reach Mount Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre.

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.

DAY 3: CERRO GORRA BLANCA OR EXTRA DAY

If weather is ok we will climb up to 2.900 meters to Gorra Blanca Hill. Then we’ll go back to Paso Marconi. In case climate won’t help it will be an extra day.

DAY 4: CIRCO DE LOS ALTARES

A new hiking day starts from Paso Marcone to Circo de los Antares. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

DAY 5: LAGUNA DE FERRARI

Another day to walk towards the amazing Laguna de Ferrari. The same meals of yesterday included.

DAY 6: TORO CAMP

Once we reach Laguna Toro, we set up our base camp in there. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included too.

Once we are again in El Chalten, we will enjoy a deserved good-bye dinner. Personal drinks are not included.

DAY 8: ANOTHER EXTRA DAY

It will be the second extra day in case of bad weather. If it is a spare day, we can practice other activities.

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.
