Description

I am happy to invite you to live a great full day snowshoeing trip in Bariloche!

Let’s snowshoe across the mountains in Bariloche while feeling the peacefulness and majesty of the Andes!

This amazing adventure starts at Cerro López foothill. Here, a 4×4 Land Rovers will be waiting for us to drive towards the mountain hut “Extremo Encantado”. Once there, we will check our gear and have a briefing about some snowshoeing and risk management skills. You will carry a home-made box-lunch with sandwiches, granola bars and a chocolate brownie.

The ascent on snowshoes follows the East Ridge climbing through an old growth “Lenga” forest. Keep your eyes open to admire Austral Parakeets and Magellanic Woodpeckers! Quickly we will gain altitude and reach  “La Roca Podrida”, the first viewpoint. Here we’ll have a short break, enjoy the view and a hot tea.

The climb continues and the ridge gets narrower and more dramatic thought the woods. After 2:30 hiking hours we will reach “La Piedra de Asterix” a rocky prominence that rises over the trees. This point offers a 360° view where we will stop for lunch and relax.

It is common to see Andean Condors flying over the mountain at this altitude. We will be now at 1615 meters of height. Time to recover our energy with two delicious home-made sandwiches and brownie.

After that, if you feel good and have some extra energy, we can continue towards “El Filo de las Cabras”. It is a mountain shoulder following the ridge with incredible new views.

Finally, the descent will be by the same route we ascended. In only one hour we’ll be again at the cozy hut enjoying a beautiful view with a cup of hot-coco on your hands!

Contact me if you find this snowshoeing program interesting. An ideal place to discover Bariloche in a different way!
