Southern Patagonia Ice Field Trek

From: £Contact us for cu...

This trekking expedition's centre-piece is a challenging hike across the South Patagonian Ice Field.

Entering Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park, we spend our days amid its towering granite spires and massive glaciers.

Our South Patagonia Ice Field trek takes us up the Marconi Glacier and onto the ice field for several days, away from civilisation and people, on to the third largest single expanse of ice on earth, exceeded only by Antarctica and Greenland.

Loaded with food, tents and determination, this is as close as you can get to an Arctic/Antarctic expedition, with everyone helping out. 

On to the Ice Field

Experience in the use of crampons and snow-shoes is preferred, as is previous experience of trekking and camping in winter conditions is beneficial. Please ask for full details.

The group size is two up to a maximum of twelve people, and everyone helps to carry communal kit and food as well as own personal gear.

This is one of the toughest treks we offer in Patagonia and way off-the-beaten-track. Contact the office with questions or for advice.
