Trekking from Frey to Jakob, Bariloche

Follow Luciana Tessio, a local certified mountain guide, in this 3-day trekking in Bariloche, traversing ridges, forests and staying in mountain huts!


3 Days

Jan - Apr, Oct - Dec


Join me for a beautiful 3-day trekking in the area of Bariloche, North Patagonia! We'll hike up to the historical Frey hut and then do a trekking traverse to Jakob hut.

This is a program of medium level of difficulty. I recommend it to people with a good physical shape and also with some previous experience in mountain trekking.

We'll walk through different landscapes, including forests, stone paths, ridges, and we might even find some snow in the higher stages. Besides, we'll have stunning views of mountains, lakes and valleys.

For further details, you can find an itinerary below.

Please contact me if you are interested in doing this trekking in a breathtaking spot of North Patagonia!

I also organize rock climbing trips and day-hiking trips here in Bariloche.

Day 1: Bariloche - Frey mountain hut

Starting from Bariloche, trekking up to Frey mountain hut, where we’ll spend the night.

Day 2: San Martin (Jakob) mountain hut

Following Cerro Catedral’s ridge, we reach and go down the Rucaco valley, and we then reach San Martín (Jakob) mountain hut after going up Tres Reyes ridge.

Day 3: Cerro Cella - Bariloche

During the morning we ascend Cerro Cella, and in the afternoon we go down and back to Bariloche.

Note: this day is quite challenging, so according to the level and energy of the group, we can decide to replace Cerro Cella’s ascent with a shorter trekking and then go back to Bariloche.

Mountain Guide

Originally from San Carlos de Bariloche, as a teenager I became interested in climbing and skiing.

I'm a certified AAGM mountain guide since 2005 and a ski guide, and worked in Northern and Southern Patagonia, including expeditions such as the Patagonian icefield round trips, Nahuel Huapi and Los glaciares national parks´guide.

I'm also a second degree ski patrol and have been working for the last 15 winters in Catedral (Bariloche, Argentina) and Grandvalira (Andorra). ANPS and EASP ski patrol.

I climbed many mountains at Chalten area (Guillaumet, Mermoz, Rafael, Saint Exupéry, media luna), Cerro Fitz Roy (supercanaleta, and Affanasief) and Pilar Casarotto (first female team). Also passionate for sport climbing, I reached a maximum grade of 7 c + (French scale) and have skied through several mountains including Cerro Gorra blanca, Vespignani, Tronador and Lanin.

I'm also a Yoga Vital instructor.

What people are saying about Luciana



I booked a tour to go hiking months in advance. I confirmed with the guide weeks in advance. When I arrived in Bariloche, I reached out to the guide and she let me know she had the wrong date of. I was never able to go hiking with her. I was able to do all the hiking on my own anyway so it was not a big deal. Probably would not use the company again. I only got annoyed because it did take several days to confirm that I would receive a refund. They did refund the payment.



I thoroughly enjoyed my trip with Luciana! She is a great, knowledgeable guide with decades of experience. I felt extremely comfortable with her and she easily adapted the trip based on my experience level. Highly recommend!
