Mountain Climbing in Calafate


MOUNTAIN CLIMBING IN PATAGONIA



Thousands of kilometers of mountain range to defy ensure that both experimented and beginner climbers will be able to enjoy themselves. From easy ascents of small peaks to high-complexity climbing of higher peaks.

This region offers great opportunities for the ones interested in mountaineering or climbing. The slopes of Mt Tronador are a popular area, and so is Lanín Volcano, climbed by people of all ages. And do not forget the most popular mount among challenge-seekers: the Fitz Roy, in Santa Cruz. In all cases, we suggest hiring guides.

Recommended places

Santa Cruz: Mt Fitz Roy
According to experts, the most difficult one in Patagonia. Climbers from all over the world know about it and get to "the south of the south" to defeat the defying needle-shaped granite summit.

Bariloche: Mt Tronador
For thousands of years the summit of Mt Tronador has been covered by a thick ice cap. From there, its three peaks and eight glacial tongues slowly shape the landscape.

Junín de los Andes: Lanín Volcano
Ascent to this perfect peak, which can be seen from several places in western Neuquén, can be made only when the sky is clear. Being physically fit is recommended.

San Martín de los Andes: Mt Chapelco
In winter, hundreds of skiers slide down its slopes, but in summer, climbing on foot ensures a unique contact with nature and the possibility of getting a magnificent view of the immensity of the mountains and lakes surrounding it.

Copahue Volcano
This ascent is generally done on horseback, but it is also worth doing it on foot.

Ushuaia: Peaks and glaciers
For those who like climbing slopes and reaching summits, the end of the world offers several mountains.




MOUNTAIN CLIMBING IN CALAFATE


Calafate Adventure Travel & Tours...

Due to its spectacular view, Perito Moreno Glacier is widely considered the eighth Wonder of the World. This impressive mass of ice, surrounded by woods and mountains, is a must when visiting Patagonia. As a matter of fact, this place -together with Puerto Madryn (in Chubut) and the Iguazú Falls (in the northern province of Misiones)- is one of the attractions most visited by foreign visitors and it is the symbol of Argentine tourism.

The Glacier can be reached by land and also including navigation in the journey. If the visitor is traveling by car, he should drive along Provincial Route Nº 15 from El Calafate (78 km approximately) for about one hour and a half. Another very interesting way of getting to the glacier is by "mini-Trekking", that is walking on ice.

Perito Moreno is one of the many glaciers in Los Glaciares National Park. All of them together make up the "Continental Patagonian Ice" (Hielo Continental Patagónico), an area of about 17000 km2, which is one of the most important drinking water reservoirs in the world. Approximately 90% of the Earth's fresh water is in the glacial regions, with Patagonia being the third after the Antarctic and Greenland.

An aura of infinite peace over the virgin nature makes of this place a paradise for those who long for clear air and silence. The silence is only interrupted by the movement of the glacier, which constantly feeds huge blocks of ice to Lake Argentino. These blocks make a deep and moving thunder as they get detached from the glacier.

Surrounded by snowcapped peaks, lenga and ñire woods, these glaciers cover 195 km2 (according to other sources, 235 km2), an area bigger than the surface of the city of Buenos Aires, 2800 km away.
