Guided trekking and icecap expeditions in the wild and spectacular Los Glaciares National Park of Patagonia

We have being visiting the glaciers and icefields of Patagonia's magnificent Los Glacieres National Park region since 2006. The area not only offers superb trekking, but the experience of a lifetime on the great Southern Patagonian Icecap. Not be missed!

Quick links to our Patagonian Activities

Our expedition and trekking itineraries run between October and April each year.

NEXT TRIP! Patagonian Icecap November 2016 & Ascent of Cerro Mariano Moreno

Details of our proposed expedition in November 2016 to the Patagonian Icecap to climb the remote peak of Cerro Mariano Moreno (3462m). It is the third highest peak in Patagonia and is rarely climbed. It is the highest summit in the Cordon Mariano Moreno massif, in the centre of the icecap and is accessible only by lengthy trekking over the many glaciers.

The Huemul Circuit

huemul circuit el chalten trek

Off the beaten path and conceived as a short and less technical trek to the Southern Ice Field Expedition, this circuit is becoming a classic in the area. It offers fantastic views of Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre and the Southern Ice Field from Paso del Viento. The way goes along wild rivers, beech forests, glaciers, and lakes. Condors fly overhead.

Outstanding views of the Lake Viedma and the Viedma Glacier make this circuit one of the most recommendable and enjoyable treks of the northern area of Los Glaciares National Park. A tyrolean rope over the Tunel River (depending on the size of the river it can be forded), a short glacier crossing on the Tunel Glacier and occasional snow patches are the only technical obstacles.

Ascent of Gorra Blanca

Your chance to climb a magnificent Patagonian mountain! Gorra Blanca 2907m is one of the most beautiful and complete mountain expeditions in the area.

You can either choose this five-day programme or combine it with our classic tour around the Southern Icecap. It is a glacier itinerary and non technical, although the guide will need to use both axes up the final snow mushroom to secure the route to the summit.

Gorra Blanca is just north of Paso Marconi in the Southern Ice Field so the views are spectacular. To the south we see all the northern side of the Fitz Roy Massif and the impressive hidden and rarely seen peak of Cerro Piergiorgio.
