Hiking in Patagonia in October
10/13/2018 Region: International Activity Type: Hiking/Walk Place: Buenos Aires, - AR
Anyone interested in visiting Argentina´s Patagonia?. I will visit Los Glaciares National Park which has Perito Moreno Glacier in October.This glacier is located in the southwest Santa Cruz Province, Argentina. It is one of the most important tourist attractions in the Argentinian Patagonia.The glacier is unusual in that it is advancing, while most glaciers worldwide are retreating. I will do a mini trekking over the glacier where you can walk over the gigantic glacier.
I wil also visit El Chalten which is Argentina´s hiking capital which is a 3 hours drive from El Calafate located in the heart of the Patagonian Andes.
The area offers a privileged scenario with multiple alternatives for the practice of outdoor activities and mountain sports. In the area, it is possible to do dozens of itineraries: from visiting panoramic points a few minutes walk and with a minimum effort, to expeditions of several days or climbing the great vertical walls reserved only for the best mountaineers. The most sought after activities in the area are: trekking, andinism, camping, horseback riding, excursions and others such as photography, climbing courses, bird watching, fishing or visiting the legendary Estancias of Santa Cruz. For all this, El Chaltén has been declared National Trekking Capital in Argentina.
I will stay 4 night in El Calafate and 5 nights in El Chalten ,3 at a hostel and 2 hiking and camping and Fitz Roy area.
Please see the link below for more information on the area.
