• Patagonia's most remote and challenging trek.

  • See Fitz Roy and Los Glaciares National Park away from crowds, from unique view points.

  • Take full part as a member of an expedition team in tough conditions.

  • Expert guides lead the group through one of the world's most beautiful and pristine environments.

The trip was great. We had perfect weather - 8 days with no precipitation and sunshine for at least a few hours on most days. It was a tough hike, but completely spectacular.

Highlight was getting to the Cerro El Torre valley and camping there for two nights under the completely spectacular massifs there. The skies were clear and we could just spend hours sitting out there admiring Cerro El Torre and the other peaks.
