We have being visiting the icefield wildernesses of Argentina's magnificent Patagonia, since 2006. We are now running annual trips there. It is a unique experience that should not be missed!
We are taking bookings for our trips to the Continental Hielo Sur in southern Argentina in November and December. Due to the difficult nature of the expedition we keep the group small. Only 6 places are available on this trip.
Objective is a traverse of the icecap surrounding the Fitzroy and Cerro Torre ranges taking in as much of the icecap as we can. We get onto the ice at Paso Marconi and leave at Paso del Viento. If conditions allow we shall make day trips out onto the ice towards Cerro Moreno/Lautaro and the Nunatek Viedma.
We came to Patagonia initially for the wilderness experience of the Patagonian Icecap. On bad weather days when winds stopped us from going to the glaciers we enjoyed some marvellous trekking in the valleys and hillsides around El Chalten. This is big country and is well named as Argentina's "Capital of Trekking".
We have expanded some of the regular trekking routes to include some tough multi-day trips wild camping in glorious mountain scenery. This is great hiking and will suit those who like to walk up to 7 hours a day and tackle up to 1000m of ascent. All gear must be carried. There is some simple scrambling and river crossings, but no mountaineering experience is required.
