Day 1
El Chalten - Laguna Toro
This is a warming up day, hiking mostly through the forest on a nice trail until we reach Laguna Toro campsite. This hike passes through beautiful meadows whilst enjoying great views of the impressive Patagonian spires of Fitz-Roy and Cerro Torre.
  • Distance: 15 km +500
  • Trekking time: 6/7 hours
  • Meals: L,D
Day 2
Viento Pass & Southern Ice Field
After breaking our camp we begin our trek towards the day’s first challenge: crossing the river Túnel via a zip line or wading depending on the river conditions. Then we continue walking uphill along big and spectacular moraines towards del Viento Pass – privileged viewing point of the Southern Ice Field. The name of this pass means Windy in Spanish, so we expect to feel the full-force of these notorious gales. Once over and onto the western slopes of the mountain we descend in direction to Paso del Viento camp, an ideal resting place with a crystal clear creek running next to our tents.
  • Distance: 13 km +900/-450
  • Trekking time: 7/8 hours
  • Meals: B,L,D
Day 3
Huemul Pass - Bahia de los Tempanos
Today we follow the trail that takes us alongside the Viedma glacier. We will always see the glacier from above, thus giving us spectacular views along the way. Along the day we pass by some sparkling mountain lakes and after lunch the hard work awaits us as we trek up to the Huemul Pass. At the top we could have the chance to see some Condors flying around since there is a huge “Condorera”. From the top of this wide pass and after taking the necessary time for resting, we have to descend a long and steep way thru the forest to get to our next camp at Bahia de los Tempanos (Icebergs), on the shore of Viedma lake with view to the glacier face.
  • Distance: 18 km +300/-900
  • Trekking time: 7/8 hours
Day 4
Bahia Tunel - El Chalten

From this last camp we have the chance to see some icebergs from the calving Viedma glacier and get spectacular pictures at sunrise. After breakfast we have a fairly easy trek to get to Bahía Túnel, including a last zip line. From the end of the trail we complete the day with a transfer that will take us to El Chalten 16 km away.

  • Distance: 14 km
  • Trekking time: 5-6 hours
