Highlights

 
  • Visit some of the farthest south cities and towns on Earth.

  • Explore mythical peaks such as Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre.

  • Reach the Perito Moreno Glacier and enjoy the patagonian sceneries.

 

Trek across the vastness of Patagonia. Discover the mesmerizing Perito Moreno Glacier, along with two of the most famous massifs of South America: Torres del Paine and Fitz Roy.

On this exclusive journey, we’ll explore Torres del Paine for about 8 days. Then, we’ll trek through the Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre circuits, for another 4 days. And, we’ll visit the Perito Moreno Glacier for 2 days. What’s more, we’ll reach mythical cities that stand at the end of the world, such as Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales, El Calafate and El Chalten.

When visiting Torres del Paine, we’ll follow a route that crosses the hypnotizing landscapes of the Torres del Paine National Park. So, throughout our expedition, we’ll see massive glaciers, magnificent towers, granite and rock horns, enchanting valleys, turquoise mountain lagoons, and unique flora and fauna.

This park is a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco. And it comprises over 242 thousand hectares of pristine and dazzling territory.

Then, we’ll get the chance to trek across the Los Glaciares National Park, and visit Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. Here, we’ll feel as if we truly reached the end of the world, surrounded by nothing but the hypnotizing beauty of nature. As the closest town and contact with civilization and modernity is El Chalten.

Finally, Perito Moreno is one of the most majestic glaciers in the continent. It’s also located in the Los Glaciares National Park, southwest of the argentinian province of Santa Cruz. And its ice field is the third largest reserve of freshwater on Earth!

If you want to join this fantastic expedition, just send me a request. I will be waiting for your message to guide you across this wonderful and remote land in the south of Argentina.

About the Guide

 
 

I discovered the mountain with my parents at a young age thanks to hiking and alpine skiing. Around 12 years old, I started climbing, and it rapidly became a real passion, allowing me to live moments of intense adventure and escape. I dedicated most of my free time to it, which allowed me to reach a good level fast.

The Wallonie rocks, and particularly Freyr, are a great school to train for walls abroad like the large walls in Verdon, the Calanques and Chamonix. My passion took me then to alpinism, ski touring, ice climbing, canyoning. After my studies, I took 2 long initiating travels to Latin America, traveling the Andes range from Ecuador to Patagonia, by foot and cycling, down the Southern route. This exceptional experience woke up a new passion in me: traveling, discovering large spaces, different cultures and civilisations, to meet others and to get to know myself.

After sharing this passion with my friends and family, I discovered the urge to make of it a real profession. I started studying to become a climbing and alpinism instructor (UPMM certification). My studies in Physical Education and Physiotherapy gave me extra knowledge of physiology, pedagogy and traumatology.

I supervised my first climbing and alpinism trainings in the Club Alpin Belge. I then became a teacher at the CAB - a Federation for many educations destined for members, future instructors and physical education teachers. I was hired at the Federation-CAB as an education coordinator in 2003, then technical director in 2005. The 7 years spent at the CAB strengthened my technical, pedagogical and management abilities. In 2011, I decided to change my orientation and return to the "field", working again in the organisation of trainings, trips, expeditions...

My motto: professionalism, friendliness and above all pleasure!
