Itinerary

MT Sobek: Chile & Argentina Ultimate Patagonia Hiking

Day 1 Arrive in Punta Arenas
Arrive at the airport in Punta Arenas, Chile and transfer to the hotel. In the early evening, gather with the group for a briefing on the adventure ahead, followed by a welcome dinner.
Accommodation: Hotel Cabo de Hornos
(D)

Day 2 Scenic Drive to Torres del Paine National Park
6-hour private van transfer
After breakfast, travel across the Patagonian plains to the quiet fishing town of Puerto Natales on the shores of Seno Ultima Esperanza (Last Hope Sound). Stretch your legs a bit and have lunch before continuing on to Torres del Paine National Park and taking in your first spectacular views of the Paine Massif (weather permitting). There is also a very good chance of seeing guanacos — small cousins to the camel and llama — on the way to the park.
Accommodation: Hotel Las Torres
(B, L, D)

Day 3 Explore Majestic Torres del Paine
9 hours/11.5 miles hiking with 3,400' elevation gain
Get an early start for an all-day hike to the base of the Torres del Paine. Follow the Asencio River over a low pass into the Ascencio Valley, passing through beautiful beech forests and talus-covered slopes. After a final steep climb up a boulder field, arrive at a spectacular viewpoint that is one of the most scenic spots in the world, where the towers rise majestically before you and a glacial lake is visible below. Enjoy a packed lunch en route before returning to the hotel.
Accommodation: Hotel Las Torres
(B, L, D)

Day 4 Hike below Cuernos del Paine
5 hours/8 miles hiking with 1,400' elevation gain
Begin your trek deep into the park, hiking at a relaxed pace along the north shore of Lago Nordenskjold to Los Cuernos, following the Paso Los Cuernos trail beneath the jagged Cuernos ("horns") del Paine. The views are magnificent, including your first sighting of the Southern Patagonia Ice Field. Stay in cozy cabins right next to a waterfall on the most isolated spot of our journey — an excellent staging area for tomorrow's hike to the French Valley. The cabins also afford a prime position to view sunset hitting the horns, and the dark night sky is filled with stars.
Accommodation: Cabañas de los Cuernos
(B, L, D)

Day 5 Hike through French Valley
8 hours/11 miles hiking with 1,350' elevation gain or up to 10-12 hours/15 miles with 3,200' elevation gain
From our cabins below the Cuernos, hike gently rolling terrain along Lake Nordenskjold to the entrance of the French Valley, one of the most spectacular cirques in the Paine Range and the middle leg of the classic "W" route. We'll gain elevation as we hike into the valley, walking below the glaciers that descend from the massif's highest summit and marveling at the gray granite peaks of the Cuernos del Paine, topped with fantastical black slate "horns." After reaching the French Valley lookout with its awe-inspiring views, either turn back and head straight to our next accommodations at Refugio Paine Grande, or, weather and time permitting, continue further up the French Valley for additional views before making our way back down the valley and then onwards to the Refugio.
Accommodation: Refugio Paine Grande
(B, L, D)

Day 6 Take a Boat to Grey Glacier
45-minute catamaran cruise
4 hours/7.5 miles hiking with 1200' elevation gain
Arise early and hike along the Paine Grande Mountain towards the face of stunning Grey Glacier, at the southern end of the Southern Patagonia Ice Field. Enjoy a packed lunch en route before boarding a catamaran that takes us close to the front of the glacier and then down to the southern shore of the Lago Grey (Grey Lake), where our hotel for the night is located.
Accommodation: Hotel Lago Grey
(B, L, D)

Day 7 Travel to Argentina & Explore El Calafate
7-hour private van transfer
Depart Chile's Torres del Paine National Park and drive across the border into Argentina. (Please be prepared for delays of up to a few hours while crossing the border). Proceed over the flat grassland steppes to the town of El Calafate, located on the southern shore of an enormous glacial lake called Lago Argentino. El Calafate is the gateway to Perito Moreno Glacier and is a great town to explore. Your trip leader will recommend restaurants for dinner on your own tonight.
Accommodation: Hotel Posada Los Alamos
(B, L)

Day 8 Marvel at the Perito Moreno Glacier
4-hour private van transfer
2 hours/2 miles walking with 350' elevation gain
Enjoy a day trip to Los Glaciares National Park to see the renowned Perito Moreno glacier. At this very active glacier, a 200-foot-high headwall continually calves massive blocks of ice into the lake with a thunderous roar - an awesome spectacle of nature's power at work. Admire the amazing glacier from different viewpoints on a 2-mile guided footbridge walk. Enjoy lunch at a restaurant overlooking the glacier before returning to El Calafate for the remainder of the afternoon and evening at leisure.
Accommodation: Hotel Posada Los Alamos
(B, L)

Day 9 Drive to Los Glaciares National Park & El Chaltén
3-hour private van transfer
1 hour/2 miles hiking with 400' elevation gain
We continue our drive across the steppes and along the northern end of Lago Viedma, with the views getting better and better as we approach the mountains and glaciers of the Fitzroy and Cerro Torre ranges. Arrive at El Chaltén for lunch. Weather permitting, take a short hike to a scenic lookout, before continuing another half an hour to Laguna Condor.
Accommodation: Laguna Condor Cabanas
(B, L, D)

Day 10 Hike along the Rio Electrico to Piedra del Fraile and Lago Electrico
6-7 hours/11 miles hiking with 1,150' elevation gain
From the trailhead at Rio Electrico Bridge, hike along the Rio Electrico Valley, which progresses gently uphill from west to east, and pass through a beautiful lenga forest to reach Piedra del Fraile, one of the first refuges in the area, protected from the winds and offering comfort to the world's most experienced climbers and mountaineers, as well as to trekkers arriving in the area for the first time. This less travelled path boasts impressive views of the north face of Fitz Roy and solitude, and the lenga forest is alive with the sounds of native birds. Wind conditions permitting, emerge back into open terrain and cross the boulder field of a glacial valley to reach the shores of Lago Electrico, fed by the Marconi Glacier. NOTE: some groups will transfer to Destino Sur in El Chalten this evening, spending one night at Laguna Condor and three nights at Destino Sur.
Accommodation: Destino Sur Hotel de Montana & Spa
(B, L, D)

Day 11 Trek to Laguna de Los Tres
8-9 hours/13.5 miles hiking with 3,150' elevation gain
Another day, another inspiring day hike into Los Glaciares. A short transfer brings us back to the trail head at Rio Electrico Bridge, before setting out on an easy walk through a beautiful forest with impressive views of Piedras Blancas Glacier as well as the Fitz Roy, Saint Exupery and Poincenot Peaks. After passing Poincenot Camp, begin a steep climb up to Laguna de los Tres — a challenging effort, but worthwhile for its superb views of Fitz Roy and its hanging glaciers. At the top take in the beautiful surroundings before hiking back to El Chalten via the secluded and very scenic Laguna Capri.
Accommodation: Destino Sur Hotel de Montana & Spa
(B, L, D)

Day 12 Follow Trails to Laguna Torre
7-8 hours/11 miles hiking with 1,800' elevation gain
Embark on a long day hike into the park's interior. We walk through a varied landscape formed by glaciers and stop for commanding views of the south face of Cerro Torre — sought after by photographers and climbers the world over. Reach the pinnacle of our trek at Laguna Torre, a beautiful glacial lake set against the backdrop of Cerro Torre, with its iconic pointy spires and hanging glaciers.

(B, L, D)
