Between the immensity of Mount Fitz Roy and the tranquil beauty of Laguna Los Tres, there are stunning views left and right...all these are within your grasp on this adventurous 4-day trek. Who's ready to venture through the heart of Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina?
Inside Los Glaciares National Park, at the foot of Mount Fitz Roy, this 3 star classic Patagonian inn in El Chaltén offers warm, professional service.
Every Thursday and Sunday from Oct 1, 2019, to Apr 30, 2020.
Based on 4+ people and 3-star hotel in El Chalten.
The trip starts every Thursday and Sunday in Ecocamp Patagonia, Torres del Paines at 9:30 AM and finishes at Calafate Airport. For domestic flights, you have to be at the airport one hour before the flight departure. We recommend that you book flights leaving after 2:30 PM.
This is the right trip for energetic people who like to be active, have a spirit of adventure and a positive attitude. To enjoy this trek it’s essential to be in shape before you arrive. It’s not wise to regard this trek as a means of getting into shape or losing excess weight. Start a program of conditioning well before departure.
8-12 travelers are the most typical group size plus guiding staff.
The maximum is 14 clients.
In Torres del Paine and throughout Patagonia transport is in minivans that normally seat from 8 to 14 people. When we have only 2 to 4 people we use smaller vehicles, usually 4x4, driven by the tour guide. On the regular departure trips, you'll share the vehicle with other EcoCamp guests joining other tours. On the private departure, the vehicle will be for your use exclusively, although transfers for private groups may be combined owing to our environmental policy compelling our operators to keep to the lowest possible environmental impact and thus avoid driving the same way at the same time with two half-empty vehicles.
The vast unbroken stretch of ocean to the west and south of the South American continent leaves the Patagonian Andes very exposed to the saturated winds that circle the Antarctic landmass. Also, both the strong marine and the South Patagonian Ice field influence make the weather hard to predict. In spring or early summer, fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rains and eventually snow. Even in summer (December to March) you should come prepared to find cold- strong winds (up to 130 km/hr) and rainfalls. The summer’s average temperature is 11ºC/52ºF (24ºC max, 2ºC min).
We’ll send you a complete pre-trip info brochure once you book, including things you need to bring in detail. Meanwhile, take a look at some general items to have in mind:
