Los Glaciares National Park, Campo de Gelo Sul

08 Days Trip // 05 Days Trekking // 02 Nights in the Mountains

To travel through Patagonia is to venture into landscapes of millenary woods, fjords, pampas, intense winds and sharp mountains. To walk through the circuits that depart from the charismatic village of el chaltén - known as the 'trekking capital' of Argentine Patagonia - with its landscapes sculpted by glaciers, is an invitation to feel more of the body, to let go a little of the mind and contemplate the majesty and impermanence of nature. the proposed itinerary includes an 8-day trip in the national park los glaciares, in the south of the southern ice field (greater concentration of ice outside the poles). there will be 5 nights in charming and simple huts in the village, and 2 nights in a mountain camp. there is no need to have previous experience in trekking. the help of our team throughout the program - with guides in English, Spanish and Portuguese - makes the trip safe and quiet, combining mountaineering experiences with moments of comfort and relaxation.

    DAY 01: Meeting at El Calafate airport (FTE), and private transfer to the lodging in El Chaltén (200km), base city of the trip. El Chaltén is a small and new town (founded in 1985), which in a short time went from a small village to today considered the trekking and climbing capital of the Argentine side of Patagonia. Located inside the Los Glaciares National Park (considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO), the city is simple and extremely charming. On the first night, there will be a welcome dinner, with briefing of the trip - especially the days of trekking - with safety instructions and tips / directions of the experience in the mountain. It will also be the time to pass on our equipment . overnight: chalet / hut in El Chaltén.

    DAY 02: Free morning to know the city / shopping and, after lunch, short trekking to some viewpoint on the outskirts of the city > from 6 to 10 km of walking. Overnight: El Chaltén travel to grow - Patagonia Argentina.

    DAY 03: Trekking Laguna de Los Tres, Fitz Roy - one of the most famous trails in Patagonia. After breakfast, we left walking towards Mount Fitz Roy - the world symbol of mountaineering - one of the main climbing peaks in the world, considered, despite its relatively modest altitude of 3375 meters, an immense challenge due to the impeccable technique its walls require to be reached. Set in numerous mountaineering films, the name Fitz Roy is a tribute to Robert Fitzroy, captain of the HMS Beagle, the ship that took Charles Darwin on his voyage of exploration around Latin America. Toward our first night of camp, the hike is considered moderate, with about 13km of distance - backpack weighing on average 10k g. Overnight: Poincenot Camp.

    DAY 04: Day to travel the region, with possibilities of several trekkings to belvederes, lagoons and glaciers. overnight stay: camp Poincenot.

    DAY 05: Return to El Chaltén after breakfast, we leave back to our lodging in El Chaltén (about 13km away), and in the evening free for the evening in the city. Overnight: El Chaltén.

    DAY 06 AND 07: Considering the climate and the mood / personal interest, we will decide which part of the national park to visit. There are a number of possibilities of hikes to belvederes, lagoons and glaciers of the southern ice field. Impressive landscapes surrounded by condors, huemules, guanacos, and of course, cougars :) last night: farewell dinner with gifts and closing remarks. Overnight: El Chaltén.

    DAY 08: Private transfer to El Calafate airport (200km).

      ''Oi! Passada a infantaria da volta pra casa, devidamente instalados e descansados, queria agradecer de novo por tudo o que vivemos nessas férias A #patagonia foi uma experiência incrível, mas temos certeza que a tua companhia e do @paulo_eduara fez toda a diferença. Vocês foram atenciosos e gentis, mas acima de tudo nos sentimos entre amigos. Vamos levar pra sempre essa recordação com carinho.
      Por hora posso dizer que fomos picados pelo bichinho do #trekking e muitas aventuras nos esperam
