Description

No matter in which time of the year you come to the Patagonia. There is a perfect plan both in Argentina and Chile waiting for you. Let’s cross the Andes and enjoy the magic of the Chilean volcanoes or the Argentinian landscapes.

That is why I am offering these winter and summer adventures in the Patagonia. During the winter time we can enjoy alpine ski touring and some summit ascents. In the summer it is time to hike through the best trails of the region!

As you can see, there are amazing opportunities all year round in this region. Furthermore, you will learn a lot about the culture of both countries at each side of the Andes mountain range.

I will take you to explore the main volcanoes and hot springs of the area, showing you the differences between Argentina and Chile. You will also enjoy the unique seafood as well as the humid and immense jungle in the Chilean side. The Patagonian Lamb and the drier steppe of the Gaucho lands await in Argentina.

Depending on what you prefer to do, the best months for a winter adventure are September and October. February and March are specially good for hiking trips. Keep in mind that, regardless of the activity, you must have a good physical condition and some previous experience.

At the bottom of the page you will find a sample itinerary. Of course it will vary according to the season of the year.

Argentina and Chile have a lot of options for you. Don’t miss the chance to discover them! Fill out the form and get in touch with me. I will be happy to be your guide.
