DAYS 6 & 10 (13th-17th April)
We will set out in the morning to El Chalten, which will be our base for the next 4 nights. El Chalten is known as “The Trekking Capital of Argentina”, and is the starting point for the Mt. Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre hikes. (Each trail is roughly between 8-9km each way) We will then meet up with our local guide and discuss the next few days in the park. The itinerary for this part of the tour will be dependent on the weather. Ideally, the plan is to spend 2 nights at the campsite near Cerro Torre and another 2 nights camped out near Mt. Fitz Roy. Here we can enjoy the park fully and explore many different viewpoints and compositions of two of the most beautiful mountains on the planet! You can also expect to see cascades, a waterfall, and glaciers over the next few days, and perhaps some wildlife!
After a sunrise on the 17th, we will make our way back to El Calafate for one last night. Over dinner we will officially conclude the workshop and discuss the trip, Patagonia, and share some laughs!
*Although we plan to camp for this part of the trip, we have a few apartments booked for this period, which can be used for gear storage, showers, and a place to stay in case of bad weather*
