Tour Highlights

We invite you to discover a new activity, where we combine trails, rock and ice and where you can live a unique experience of sleeping next to a glacier. We will be able to observe the unexplored Cagliero Sur Glacier, which for years has been well preserved thanks to its orientation and the accumulation of snow from the Neumayer, Cagliero and Loma del Diablo hills, to the south the vertical walls of the Thirtieth Anniversary Hill and its spires, the Diente del Diablo (Devil's Tooth) being the most outstanding. Our program includes accommodation, one dinner, one lunch and one breakfast.

Details of this Activity

If you chose the option WITH TRANSFER, from 8 am we will pick you up at your hotel, and then take you to Los Huemules Reservation. At 9:00 am, from the Visitor Centre we will begin our adventure. From there, following the Diablo River upstream, go on a 1.45 hours hike through a lush lenga forest along a well maintained trail, that leads us to Laguna del Diablo (770 masl), where you can see the Cagliero refuge, and from where the second stage of our excursion begins, outside Los Huemules Reserve and into a private property (Campo Gorra Blanca). Distance: 7km - Uphill slope: 300 mts

The second part of our excursion consists of bordering the northern margin of the Laguna del Diablo by an easy but irregular terrain until we reach the beginning of a Via Ferrata (rock climbing areas of little difficulty that have been previously prepared with steel cables and artificial steps, so that you can move by yourselves and secured with harnesses and straps specially designed for this purpose). Before the beginning of this section, the guides will provide the necessary equipment and teach you the correct and safe use of it. As the meters go by and you feel safer with the equipment, the trip becomes more and more entertaining, transforming this part of the activity into an excursion in itself. The views of the Devil's Lagoon and its Valley will improve as we move upwards. Approximately an hour and a half will take us to the Mirador del Glaciar, from there to the north, we can see the unexplored Cagliero Sur Glacier (950 masl). From the viewpoint, a short walk takes us to the front of the glacier, where the guides will distribute and regulate the crampons to the hikers' boots. Distance: 4 km - Slope: 400 metres

We will begin the third part of our program which is the trekking in the glacier itself, if the climate is mild we will have lunch on the glacier. The average stay on the glacier will be approximately 3 hours, where you will be able to make an introductory ice climbing, depending on the climatic conditions and the physical level of the group. In the afternoon we will be back at the Cagliero refuge, where we can enjoy a hot drink while watching the glacier. Dinner will be served in the evening, and then we will go to rest in our Vivac Dome, which is equipped with 6 beds. 
In the morning, after breakfast and before lunch, the return trip will begin. The return will be made by the same Via Ferrata until the Dome Base, then we hike through the path of the Green and Blue lagoon, discovering new landscapes and being able to see the North face of the Fitz Roy Hill. The time of meeting with the transfer  to El Chaltén will be 17.30hs. Transfer to the hotels around 18:30hs
