What To Expect
MT Sobek: Argentina & Chile Patagonia Hiking with Premier Lodging

Reason #01
We used our 40+ years of expertise in Patagonia to craft this adventure for those who prefer a shorter, less strenuous hiking itinerary using top accommodations.Reason #02
In just nine days, experience achievable day hikes in both Los Glaciares and Torres del Paine, recharging in between at a luxury lodge in the Patagonian steppe.Reason #03
Follow MT Sobek's expert local guides and enjoy wonderful hikes, excellent cuisine, wine tastings, and some of Patagonia's finest accommodations.Activities

Easy to moderate day hikes, with two more challenging days; also easy horseback riding options at EOLO.

Lodging

A perfectly situated hotel in the mountaineering hub of El Chalten, plus two luxury lodges - EOLO in the Patagonian steppe near El Calafate and Tierra Patagonia in Torres del Paine.

Climate

October to March are the best months to travel in Patagonia with moderate to warm temperatures during the days and cool nights. Strong winds are common.

When and where should I arrive?

Arrive in El Calafate, Argentina by 1:40 PM on Day 1. An MT Sobek representative will meet you at El Calafate airport and a group transfer is provided, departing El Calafate airport at 2:30 PM for the 3-hour drive to El Chaltén. You may wish to arrive a day early and book your own pre-tour accommodations in Buenos Aires or El Calafate, in order to rest from international flights and to make sure you are in El Calafate in time for the 2:30 PM group transfer to El Chaltén.

Do I need prior hiking experience?

Not necessarily. This is a moderate-level hiking trip, which means you will enjoy your experience more if you have hiked previously. Hikes can be skipped entirely, and there are options available to accommodate different fitness levels.

How does this trip compare to your Chile & Argentina Ultimate Patagonia Hiking trip?

This trip is designed to be considerably easier than our Ultimate Patagonia Hiking trip. All hikes are day hikes, so you are never required to finish a hike to get to the next destination (as is required for the W-Route portion of our Ultimate Patagonia trip), and there is less mileage each day as well as less elevation gain and loss. Accommodations are also more luxurious, with gourmet cuisine. If you are looking for a more in-depth experience and a greater physical challenge (including the full W-Route Trek in Torres del Paine), and don't mind spending some nights at simple mountain lodges, our Ultimate Patagonia Hiking trip is a better fit.

Will the hikes go ahead if the weather is poor?

Strong winds and occasional rain are common, and even in the Patagonian summer light snow is possible. Most of our hikes take place within somewhat protected environments so weather conditions rarely disrupt them. We will shorten or skip hikes if there are safety concerns.

Would you recommend trekking poles?

Yes. Trekking poles will assist with balance over rocky and uneven terrain, as well as alleviate pressure on your joints during ascents and descents.

What is the minimum age for this trip?
The standard minimum age for this trip is 18, but check out our private trip options for families and groups with younger guests.
