Good morning, and goodbye for now, El Calafate! We’re off to El Chaltén (3 hours).

Day 3

Time for more trekking! Wake up and enjoy breakfast before meeting your trekking guide for a full day of hiking in El Chaltén. We recommend Laguna de los Tres, the highlight of El Chaltén. You’ll cross the Del Salto Stream and its icy blue water surrounded by orange rocks that serve as a beautiful foreground of Mount Fitz Roy.

The trail finishes at the ridge of the rocky De los Tres Glacier - an enormous formation in the shape of an arch that holds the beautiful blue water with the best view of the lagoon and De los Tres glacier. This is the closest and most extraordinary view of the granite wall of Mount Fitz Roy and the surrounding peaks.

Day 5

Hello Puerto Natales! Total, we’ll embark on a full day of trekking in the incredible national park, Torres del Paine. Our recommendation for your hiking adventure, Base Las Torres!

Eat a hearty breakfast before meeting your trekking guide. We’ll depart from Puerto Natales around 7.30 AM and return back to the hotel around 8-9:00 PM (2 hour drive each way).

Arriving from the dense forests along the Rio Ascencio, you’ll ascend toward the base of Torres del Paine. Admire the dramatic views of glaciated mountains as you climb. Get a good grip, the trail becomes rocky as it winds around granite boulders toward a glacial tarn. A spectacular view of the Torres del Paine and the glacial tarn below awaits you at the top. Hang onto a buddy, the trail is a bit steep headed down.

Day 7

Wake up and enjoy your last full day exploring Patagonia with friends! Let your legs rest (or don’t!) and sign up for an Ice Trek.

Experience an (optional) unforgettable adventure in the ice world of Patagonia by exploring the iconic glaciers up-close and personal. The adventure begins with a boat ride along the towering façade of the glacier, followed by disembarking on the opposite shore. From there, you will walk along the lateral side until ascending over the ice. This 2 hour, moderate circuit on the ice will introduce you to the fascinating glacial landscape. Take in the most incredible shades of blue as you pass streams, small lagoons, crevasses and sculptural ice formations. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Celebrate the last 7 days with new friends over dinner before we say our goodbyes.

Overnight in El Calafate.
