The explorations are as diverse as the landscapes we will enjoy, including hikes, overland trips, ice trekking, and even rock climbing.
The explorations at El Chaltén are as varied as the surroundings we are about to know. The area’s geography has towering mountains and different landscapes open to be discovered through treks, overland trips, ice hikes, and even rock climbing, depending on the preferences and skills of each traveler.
The Los Glaciares National Park, declared a world heritage site by UNESCO, will be one of the places to be explored. Other attractions to be discovered are the Southern Patagonia Mountain Range, Mount Fitz-Roy, the towering heights of the area, and the surroundings of the Los Huemules Natural Reserve, in addition to the Patagonia forest and its rich wildlife.
The explorations can cover a full day or half a day, in groups of no more than eight travelers accompanied by a bilingual guide trained in our own Guide School. We recommend a minimum of four nights to be able to deeply discover Argentinean Patagonia, although we assure you that once you begin exploring you will feel that you need more time. Six nights are also a good option to really immerse oneself in the forests, mountains, and glaciers of Argentinean Patagonia.
