Southern Patagonia Ice Cap Expedition
10 Days / 9 Nights
El Chaten - Paso Marconi - Paso Huemul - El Chaten
The Southern Patagonian Ice Field is a universe of ice and snow where few people have set foot. It is Earth's third largest glaciated area lying quite close to El Chaten at the famous Fitz Roy. We offer you an opportunity of trekking through the Ice Cap with a view of world famous mountains such as Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre and trek the whole length of the Viedma Glacier. The Southern Patagonian Ice Cap represents the third largest mass of ice in the world after Antarctica and the Greenland sheets.
Ice field expeditions are very tough since they require hiking over all kinds of terrain in very isolated areas. Winter camping experience is useful and day after day you will experience harsh conditions.
Our itineraries are suggestions and are fully customisable according to your needs, interests and budget.
Treat these itineraries as inspiration and one of our experts will create your uniquely tailored holiday with your requests in mind so that you can truly experience Argentina with Seven Senses.
