With so many climbing options in the world, having a truly beautiful backdrop sets your trip apart…. Frey in Bariloche provides truly stunning surroundings in which to climb!

Located about 20km from downtown Bariloche in Patagonia, the Frey refuge and climbing routes are situated 1700m above sea level and next to the iconic Frey spire.

A stunningly picturesque area, the refuge overlooks the green tinted Toncek Lagoon. Adding the final touch is Mount Catedral, a few kilometres away,  dominating the horizon and finishing the painting!

I have been climbing in Frey since I was a child, I learned to climb through my local school and now I’m excited to offer you the chance to join me on this gorgeous terrain.

The climbing in Frey is renowned internationally and is some of the best in Argentina. Orange granite rock of excellent quality that contains many fissures and formations perfect for climbing.

There are a variety of routes and difficulties so you can be sure to find something right for you.

We will meet in central Bariloche and then the journey to the refuge will take about 3 hours.

The refuge is a gorgeous piece of construction, granite sculpture work, wood panels and a tiled roof combine to create accomodation that is easy on the eye.

Hosting up to 40 people and with all the necessary amenities, the Frey Refuge provides a comfortable nights sleep after everyday’s climb.

I provide a flexible programme where the difficulty and length of climb can be adapted to meet your preferences. For more details, read the itinerary below.

If you would like the chance to climb some top quality granite rock faces in truly stunning surroundings and with a seasoned, local guide then sign up now because I can’t wait to share this wonderful experience with you!

Great experience ! Amazing views of Cerro Tronador and Bariloche city. The guide, Pablo was really good. The activity is very recommendable !! Thank you Pablo and Explore Share!



It was an amazing trip!! We had no experience in paragliding but the guides made us feel very very safe, they have a lot of experience and are very professionals. If you are in Bariloche, don't miss the chance to fly with them. And also the Explore-Share team was always willing to help. 10/10!!



The paragliding experience was unbelievable! Getting to see Bariloche and it's surrounding lake and mountains was breathtaking. I would definitely do this again. Pablo was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgable and had a lot of experience paragliding. He gave clear instructions on how to take off and made you feel safe every step of the away. Throughout the trip, he will capture pics and videos for you to take home. He was very friendly and always looked out for your best interest.
