This program is for one-day-trips of backcountry skiing in the beautiful mountains that surround El Chaltén, in Patagonia, Argentina.

This program is ideal for people who would like to ski in one of the mountains of the region, or for those who have a couple of days and want to combine a couple of these one-day options for a customized itinerary. If you are interested in a one-week program, you can check this option.

Some of the alternatives we can explore are Cerro Vespignani, Laguna de Los Tres and Loma del Diablo. For any of these, you need previous off-piste experience and a good fitness level.

For fans and lovers of backcountry ski, this region offers great snow conditions in an impressive environment, surrounded by views of Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre and the Southern Ice Field.

Mountain Guide

Certified UIAGM-IFMGA Mountain Guide from Argentina.

I live in El Chaltén since 1998. I'm originally from Bariloche and I started with mountain activities when I was 15 years old. I've done climbing and ascents in many mountains of Patagonia, Perú, Bolivia, United States and Europe; such as Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Alpamayo, El Capitán, Mont Blanc and Aconcagua among others. I'm also a Ski Instructor and I am passionate for backcountry ski.

I speak fluent English, Italian and French and have been leading trips and expeditions for more than 20 years. I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available for the trip you request, one of my colleagues will guide you!

What people are saying about Merlín



The guide was Valerie not Merlin. Valerie was super helpful and we had one of our best days in Patagonia! We hope that our use of Explore Share website ensured that the local guide was well compensated. Everything was well organised, the talk on the way about the trek was super interesting. The views stunning.



Teo was our guide and he was great! He was very knowledgeable about the different wildlife and plants. Without him we would have never attempted to summit or descend (which was worse - his belaying and short roping was totally awesome and we felt in good hands). The weather wasn’t the best but he definitely helped guide us on what to do with the crazy winds we got. His English was very good as well. Totally recommend this for anyone seeking a great adventure and these guys made us feel very ready with all the questions and information they gave us before the day! If you want a real adventure do this and not just Laguna de los Tres!



Great hike, exhilarating and so much beautiful scenery! Thank you Marco. Grateful for the hiking poles on the incline to the Laguna.



Teo was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about the area. He was very considerate of how I was getting on. I had an amazing time!



Merlin is the top climbing guide in Chalten. Anything from simple sport climbing to hard multi pitches. I did a sport day with my brother and our girlfriends. We went to two different crags in Chalten, and climbed 10 routes, fun for the whole family. I got to lead climb and had my girlfriend belay me for the first time. Thanks Merlin and Martin! I want to return to climb Guillaumet with Merlin!
