Patagonia Mountain Guides
Are you looking for Patagonia mountain guides? Join us in the enchanted land of Patagonia and experience Austral summer at it’s finest. We offer three, five and seven day programs near the beautiful town of Bariloche, Argentina.
Climb on the golden granite spires near Cerro Cathedral, single and multipitch routes up perfect stone lead you to an airy summit every time!
Travel through three distinct ecosystems on your way to an ascent of the majestic Cerro Tronador (3491 Meters) whose glaciated summit straddles the border of Argentina and Chile.
Trek through the fabled valley of Cochamo, a forgotten Yosemite in the coastal fijordlands of Chile. Hiking this multi-day journey through the Selva Valdiviana (jungle rain forest) from Chile into Argentina is an unforgettable experience.
