El Calafate & El Chalten

Both towns are used as bases for exploration of the surrounding scenery of snow-capped mountains, crystal clear lakes and glaciers.

Most people will know the area for the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. The sight of this majestic wall of ice will remain with you for a long time. If you’re really lucky you can see a large block of ice drop from the walls and crash into the lake below creating a thunderous sound.

We like to do things a little differently here, so instead of just seeing the Glacier from afar, how about crossing the lake by boat and get up close and personal by donning crampons and hiking across it?

Less well-known are Mount Fitzroy and Cerro Torre near El Chaltén. Granite, snow-clad mountains rising up from the flat steppe and a hiker’s paradise which is much less crowded than the neighbouring Torres del Paine. Our local guides will take you along the best known trails as well as some more rarely travelled ones.

For the really active we can organise tours up to the Mount Fitzroy base camp for camping and ice climbing. Our guides will wake you up early in the morning with a hot coffee so you can watch the pink sunrise over the snowy peaks.

Just a wonderful place to explore

When to go: November to March
