Testimonial

Amazing Voyages kept track of us every day and we cannot explain how important it was to us to feel that we were in very good hands. Every driver and guide was always on time and very gracious and helpful and our every need was taken care of for us. We really appreciate your professionalism.

The Plaza Grande in Quito is absolutely fabulous, the Royal Palm in the Galapagos is the best hotel we ever stayed in; the chef is outstanding, his meals are some of the best we ever had. Did you know that Prince Charles stayed there when he visited the islands? We are sure that the service we received was just as good as his. We had a marvelous time in the Galapagos and it was living a dream.

We cross 190 km of gravel road through the Patagonian steppe and stop at La Leona, a picturesque inn to enjoy homemade cakes. The views on the Viedma Lake are superb. El Chalten is located on the edge of Los Glaciares National Park in the surroundings of the Fitz Roy Mount. Hotel.

Day 5. Piedra Del Fraile
Today we start our trek in the Los Glaciares National Park. A short transfer takes us to the Rio Electrico, where we start our trek through the forest to Piedra del Fraile. Leaving our packs here we continue trekking the Rio Electrico Valley for 2 hours and then ascending 1 hour to see the Fitz Roy Mount (3441m/11289 ft) north face and a view of the impressive Marconi Glacier.

Day 7. Madre e Hija Lagoon - Torre Mount
This morning we start trekking along the shore of Laguna Madre and Lagoon Hija until reaching Bridwell base camp at Torre Mount area. Torre Mount (3128m/10.262 ft) with its needle shaped peak is a major challenge for the best climbers. We trek along the northern side of Laguna Torre, fed by the Fitzroy River. From here we will have astonishing views of Torre Mount. Lodging in full Camp at Bridwell double base (rural area).

Day 8. Glacier Trek on the Torre Glacier
Today, weather permitting, we perform an impressive activity. You will walk and climb on the legendary Torre Mount Glacier, with its granite walls just behind you. All necessary equipment (rope, harness, crampons, ice-axe) and expert guidance are provided. In order to access the glacier we have to make a Tyrolean crossing of the river. This is done by clipping a little seat onto a fixed rope over the river and pulling yourself, or being pulled, across. Lodging in full Camp at Bridwell double base (rural area).

Day 9. Pliegue Tumbado, Toro Lagoon
Today we cross the Fitz Roy River using once again the Tyrolean traverse. We trek through the forest, before climbing 700 meters (2300 ft) to the ridge which connects the summits of the Pliegue Tumbado. The landscape of the Fitzroy group and the Rio Tunel Valley is breathtaking. Lodging in full Camp at Laguna Toro double base (rural area).

Day 10. Paso del Viento

Day 13. El Calafate - Perito Moreno Glacier
After breakfast we depart by bus to the Magallanes peninsula, which is the entrance of The Glaciers National Park. Its centrepiece is the Perito Moreno Glacier, which, because of unusually favourable local conditions, is one of the world's few advancing glaciers. Huge icebergs from the glacier wall collapse into the De los Tempanos Channel. The roar of the gigantic ice rocks falling and crashing into the waters of the channel is a unique experience.
Our bus will lead us just in front of the Glacier, allowing us to walk the gangplanks to view the Glacier from different viewpoints. Then we go down to the lakeside to board a ship that carries us very near the Glacier ice walls. Return to El Calafate. Accommodation in a hostel.

Day 14. El Calafate - El Calafate Airport
