Itinerary


  • Arrive in El Calafate & Journey to El Chalten

    Day 1

    Arrive in El Calafate. Meet your MT Sobek guide at the airport and transfer to your hotel in El Chalten. The scenic drive takes you through the Patagonian steppe and follows the shores of Lake Argentino and Lake Viedma. Stop en route for a coffee break at a well-known crossroads from the time wool caravans went across Patagonia. Take in views of the mythical Fitz Roy Massif and Cerro Torre as you arrive in the village of El Chalten, your home for the next three nights and base for some of the most fabulous hiking trails in Patagonia. After an orientation, enjoy a welcome dinner.

    Transportation: 2.5-3-hour private van transfer

    Meals: Dinner

  • Trek Glacial Valleys to Cerro Torre

    Day 2

    Trek through native forests and along a glacial valley to Cerro Torre Base Camp and revel in one of the most stunning views in Patagonia: the south face of Cerro Torre, with its iconic pointy spires and hanging glaciers (weather permitting). There will be the option to continue beyond the Cerro Torre lookout point, following the valley to the shore of Laguna Torre, a beautiful glacial lake set against the backdrop of Cerro Torre and the Torre Glacier. In the afternoon, return to El Chalten and enjoy the lively atmosphere at the local brewery, and leisure time before dinner.

    Day 3

    After a scenic morning drive to the trail head at Rio Electrico Bridge, hike west into the valley of Rio Electrico and then head south below the east face of Mount Fitz Roy. Enjoy beautiful forests interspersed with incredible views of Marconi Pass and Piedras Blancas Glacier, as well as Fitz Roy, Saint Exupery, and Poincenot Peaks (weather permitting). Enjoy a picnic lunch at Poincenot Camp before continuing on to the secluded and scenic Laguna Capri, and then back to El Chalten. Those who prefer a shorter hike today are welcome to turn back at the Piedras Blancas lookout, and one of our guides will accompany you to meet the van back at the Rio Electrico Bridge for the transfer back to the hotel.

  • Journey to EOLO Lodge in the Patagonian Steppe

    Day 4

    Depart from Chalten this morning and return to the steppes for your last glimpse of the jagged peaks of Fitz Roy mountain range. This drive is a great opportunity to spot diverse fauna species, guanacos (South American camelids), foxes, armadillos, and varied birds including choikes (South American ostrich), eagles and condors. Thirty minutes beyond the town of Calafate, arrive at EOLO Lodge, an exclusive Relais & Chateau property located on a 10,000-acre ranch at the foothills of Cerro Frías, overlooking the vast steppe and the Andes (on clear days, even the Paine massif can be spotted in the distance!). Relax over lunch at the lodge, then set out on a horseback ride into the valley to the nearby Flamingoes Lagoon, with opportunities to spot a variety of bird species. Look out for local fauna including guanacos and condors, and enjoy open views of Anita's Valley and the surrounding mountain ranges. Alternately, if you prefer, our guide team can show you the trailhead for an independent hike up the slopes of Cerro Frías, reaching a forest of distinctive native trees including Ñires, Lengas and Cohihues. This evening, contemplate the endless horizon of the Patagonian plains and be sure to take in the incredible sunset.

    Accommodation: Eolo Lodge

    Activity: 2 hours horseback riding on gentle slopes

    Transportation: 3.5-hour private van transfer

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  • Marvel at Perito Moreno Glacier & Experience EOLO

    Day 5

    Start today with a scenic drive into the Southern part of Los Glaciares National Park, arriving at the Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the largest in Argentina and known for the massive breaking of its 180-foot front wall. Begin on an easy interpretative trail through the native forest that gently leads to the lake shore. Then a short transfer will take you to the entrance of the extensive walkways that gradually approach the glacier. Return to EOLO for an afternoon at leisure, with time to enjoy a massage treatment or relaxation in the spa, or walk through EOLO's fantastic landscapes. Gather back in time for a pre-dinner tasting of selected Argentine wines and an overview of Argentina's wine production regions.

    Accommodation: Eolo Lodge

    Activity: 2 hours/2 miles walking with 350' elevation gain at Perito Moreno

    Wake for an early start to reach customs by midmorning hours, in order to anticipate crowds. Leave customs behind to find yourself immersed in the surreal landscapes of Torres del Paine National Park. Check in at your home for three nights, Tierra Patagonia. After lunch, transfer to the nearby area of Laguna Azul on the east side of the park. The lake is named for its incredible deep blue color, and a short hike here includes the best lookout points for views of the Torres (Towers) as well as a small wetland with a great variety of birds. Then, after a short drive, hike into Cañadon Macho, crossing green pastures and gently ascending to a high pass with great views of the Paine Massif and Cerro Almirante Nieto. Descend to the valley where the private minibus awaits, and stop for photos of the Paine Waterfall, with its rushing glacial waters, before returning to the lodge for dinner.

    Accommodation: Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa

    Activity: 2 hours/2.5 miles hiking with 750' elevation gain & loss

    Transportation: 5-6-hour private van transfer

    Set out on a scenic drive into Torres del Paine National Park, stopping at various viewpoints, including the beautiful, green Laguna Amarga, full of sedimentary formations known as stromatolites, as well as views out over Lake Nordenskjold and Los Cisnes Lagoon. From above Lake Sarmiento, hike the "Hunter's Trail" past the Goic Lagoon and towards Laguna Amarga and the Paine River, passing through an area of Patagonian plains with views of the Paine Massif and excellent chances of spotting Patagonian fauna such as guanacos and ostrich-like nandus - and possibly even some puma tracks! After a picnic lunch, meet your private van at the Laguna Amarga ranger station and drive a short distance to the shores of Lake Sarmiento for a hike on the Origenes Trail. The first section is mostly flat, before descending a steeper section to the shores of Lake Sarmiento to observe the lake's incredible geological features, formed long ago by thrombolytes. Continue along the shores of small lagoons in the glacial moraine, gaining different perspectives of the Paine Massif and spotting wildlife on the way. Before dinner, gather for a casual tasting of Chilean wines, and a brief overview of Chile's current wine production.

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  • Discover the Hidden Paso de Agostini Trail & Hike to the Salto Grande Waterfall

    Day 8

    Cap off your last day in Torres del Paine with a full-day hike along the Paso de Agostini, a little known trail away from the crowds, passing through grasslands with colorful lakes and the iconic Paine Massif as backdrops, and chances to spot local wildlife including guanacos, foxes, and condors. Setting off from Estancia Lazo, admire views across the open green waters of Laguna Verde then meander through lenga forest to reach a series of lookout points, with panoramic views of the lakes and mountains. Stop for a picnic lunch along the way in a tranquil, natural setting, then make a short climb to a viewpoint over Lago del Toro, the winding Paine River, and imposing mountains across the horizon. The hike ends with a fairly steep descent to Weber Bridge, where the van is waiting to take you along the shore of Lake Pehoe to the peninsula overlooking Lake Nordenskjold. Hike a short distance to the lookout over Salto Grande, the largest waterfall in the park, with beautiful turquoise waters. Also enjoy outstanding views across Lake Nordenskjold to the Horns of Paine, rising up above the French Valley. Return by private van to the lodge and enjoy some well-earned pampering in the indoor heated pool, sauna, or Jacuzzi before celebrating your journey with a farewell dinner.

    Accommodation: Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa

    Activity: 6-7 hours/10.5 miles hiking with 950' elevation gain & loss

    Transportation: 2-hour private van transfer

Arrive in El Calafate. Meet your MT Sobek guide at the airport and transfer to your hotel in El Chalten. The scenic drive takes you through the Patagonian steppe and follows the shores of Lake Argentino and Lake Viedma. Stop en route for a coffee break at a well-known crossroads from the time wool caravans went across Patagonia. Take in views of the mythical Fitz Roy Massif and Cerro Torre as you arrive in the village of El Chalten, your home for the next three nights and base for some of the most fabulous hiking trails in Patagonia. After an orientation, enjoy a welcome dinner.

Trek through native forests and along a glacial valley to Cerro Torre Base Camp and revel in one of the most stunning views in Patagonia: the south face of Cerro Torre, with its iconic pointy spires and hanging glaciers (weather permitting). There will be the option to continue beyond the Cerro Torre lookout point, following the valley to the shore of Laguna Torre, a beautiful glacial lake set against the backdrop of Cerro Torre and the Torre Glacier. In the afternoon, return to El Chalten and enjoy the lively atmosphere at the local brewery, and leisure time before dinner.

Enjoy a picnic lunch at Poincenot Camp before continuing on to the secluded and scenic Laguna Capri, and then back to El Chalten. Those who prefer a shorter hike today are welcome to turn back at the Piedras Blancas lookout, and one of our guides will accompany you to meet the van back at the Rio Electrico Bridge for the transfer back to the hotel.

Depart from Chalten this morning and return to the steppes for your last glimpse of the jagged peaks of Fitz Roy mountain range. This drive is a great opportunity to spot diverse fauna species, guanacos (South American camelids), foxes, armadillos, and varied birds including choikes (South American ostrich), eagles and condors. Thirty minutes beyond the town of Calafate, arrive at EOLO Lodge, an exclusive Relais & Chateau property located on a 10,000-acre ranch at the foothills of Cerro Frías, overlooking the vast steppe and the Andes (on clear days, even the Paine massif can be spotted in the distance!). Relax over lunch at the lodge, then set out on a horseback ride into the valley to the nearby Flamingoes Lagoon, with opportunities to spot a variety of bird species. Look out for local fauna including guanacos and condors, and enjoy open views of Anita\'s Valley and the surrounding mountain ranges. Alternately, if you prefer, our guide team can show you the trailhead for an independent hike up the slopes of Cerro Frías, reaching a forest of distinctive native trees including Ñires, Lengas and Cohihues. This evening, contemplate the endless horizon of the Patagonian plains and be sure to take in the incredible sunset.

Start today with a scenic drive into the Southern part of Los Glaciares National Park, arriving at the Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the largest in Argentina and known for the massive breaking of its 180-foot front wall. Begin on an easy interpretative trail through the native forest that gently leads to the lake shore. Then a short transfer will take you to the entrance of the extensive walkways that gradually approach the glacier. Return to EOLO for an afternoon at leisure, with time to enjoy a massage treatment or relaxation in the spa, or walk through EOLO\'s fantastic landscapes. Gather back in time for a pre-dinner tasting of selected Argentine wines and an overview of Argentina\'s wine production regions.

Wake for an early start to reach customs by midmorning hours, in order to anticipate crowds. Leave customs behind to find yourself immersed in the surreal landscapes of Torres del Paine National Park. Check in at your home for three nights, Tierra Patagonia. After lunch, transfer to the nearby area of Laguna Azul on the east side of the park. The lake is named for its incredible deep blue color, and a short hike here includes the best lookout points for views of the Torres (Towers) as well as a small wetland with a great variety of birds. Then, after a short drive, hike into Cañadon Macho, crossing green pastures and gently ascending to a high pass with great views of the Paine Massif and Cerro Almirante Nieto. Descend to the valley where the private minibus awaits, and stop for photos of the Paine Waterfall, with its rushing glacial waters, before returning to the lodge for dinner.

Set out on a scenic drive into Torres del Paine National Park, stopping at various viewpoints, including the beautiful, green Laguna Amarga, full of sedimentary formations known as stromatolites, as well as views out over Lake Nordenskjold and Los Cisnes Lagoon. From above Lake Sarmiento, hike the \"Hunter\'s Trail\" past the Goic Lagoon and towards Laguna Amarga and the Paine River, passing through an area of Patagonian plains with views of the Paine Massif and excellent chances of spotting Patagonian fauna such as guanacos and ostrich-like nandus - and possibly even some puma tracks! After a picnic lunch, meet your private van at the Laguna Amarga ranger station and drive a short distance to the shores of Lake Sarmiento for a hike on the Origenes Trail. The first section is mostly flat, before descending a steeper section to the shores of Lake Sarmiento to observe the lake\'s incredible geological features, formed long ago by thrombolytes. Continue along the shores of small lagoons in the glacial moraine, gaining different perspectives of the Paine Massif and spotting wildlife on the way. Before dinner, gather for a casual tasting of Chilean wines, and a brief overview of Chile\'s current wine production.

Cap off your last day in Torres del Paine with a full-day hike along the Paso de Agostini, a little known trail away from the crowds, passing through grasslands with colorful lakes and the iconic Paine Massif as backdrops, and chances to spot local wildlife including guanacos, foxes, and condors. Setting off from Estancia Lazo, admire views across the open green waters of Laguna Verde then meander through lenga forest to reach a series of lookout points, with panoramic views of the lakes and mountains. Stop for a picnic lunch along the way in a tranquil, natural setting, then make a short climb to a viewpoint over Lago del Toro, the winding Paine River, and imposing mountains across the horizon. The hike ends with a fairly steep descent to Weber Bridge, where the van is waiting to take you along the shore of Lake Pehoe to the peninsula overlooking Lake Nordenskjold. Hike a short distance to the lookout over Salto Grande, the largest waterfall in the park, with beautiful turquoise waters. Also enjoy outstanding views across Lake Nordenskjold to the Horns of Paine, rising up above the French Valley. Return by private van to the lodge and enjoy some well-earned pampering in the indoor heated pool, sauna, or Jacuzzi before celebrating your journey with a farewell dinner.

FAQs


When and where should I arrive?

Arrive in El Calafate, Argentina by 1:40 PM on Day 1. An MT Sobek representative will meet you at El Calafate airport and a group transfer is provided, departing El Calafate airport at 2:30 PM for the 3-hour drive to El Chaltén. You may wish to arrive a day early and book your own pre-tour accommodations in Buenos Aires or El Calafate, in order to rest from international flights and to make sure you are in El Calafate in time for the 2:30 PM group transfer to El Chaltén.

Do I need prior hiking experience?

Not necessarily. This is a moderate-level hiking trip, which means you will enjoy your experience more if you have hiked previously. Hikes can be skipped entirely, and there are options available to accommodate different fitness levels.

How does this trip compare to your Chile & Argentina Ultimate Patagonia Hiking trip?

This trip is designed to be considerably easier than our Ultimate Patagonia Hiking trip. All hikes are day hikes, so you are never required to finish a hike to get to the next destination (as is required for the W-Route portion of our Ultimate Patagonia trip), and there is less mileage each day as well as less elevation gain and loss. Accommodations are also more luxurious, with gourmet cuisine. If you are looking for a more in-depth experience and a greater physical challenge (including the full W-Route Trek in Torres del Paine), and don't mind spending some nights at simple mountain lodges, our Ultimate Patagonia Hiking trip is a better fit.

Will the hikes go ahead if the weather is poor?

Strong winds and occasional rain are common, and even in the Patagonian summer light snow is possible. Most of our hikes take place within somewhat protected environments so weather conditions rarely disrupt them. We will shorten or skip hikes if there are safety concerns.

Would you recommend trekking poles?

Yes. Trekking poles will assist with balance over rocky and uneven terrain, as well as alleviate pressure on your joints during ascents and descents.

What is the minimum age for this trip?
The standard minimum age for this trip is 18, but check out our private trip options for families and groups with younger guests.

"This is a trip that becomes a journey to a very special place in our world. The experience taught me many things about myself, the people and culture of our host country and in mankind itself. This is a journey that is forever imbedded in my heart."

"We have used many travel companies in the past. We chose MT Sobek based on the variety of activities, the nicer accommodations, the activity level of this trip and the cost value. We definitely chose wisely. It is apparent that MT Sobek goes to great lengths to choose their guides well. At all times, we felt personally catered to, as our guides cared for our comfort and every request. Though we just returned, we are researching our next MT Sobek adventure!"
