HIKING IN PATAGONIA – 16 Days

Explore Argentina and Chile in 2 weeks! Trek Torres del Paine and discover much more of Patagonia

During this 2-week hiking adventure in Argentina and Chile you’ll discover the fabled landscapes and unparalleled natural wonders of Patagonia, without the constraint of large groups and expensive tours. Trek through Perito Moreno Glacier, El Chaltén (a favorite for hikers), Ushuaia (the southernmost city in the world) and world-famous Torres del Paine National Park.

Day 1 – From El Calafate to El Chaltén

 

Take a bus from El Calafate to the hiking village of El Chaltén

 

You have arrived in Patagonia! Your 2-week dream trip through Argentina and Chile is about to begin. Upon landing in El Calafate, you will take a public bus to start your 3-hour trip to El Chaltén.

 

You’ll travel along the famous Route 40, surrounded by the Patagonian steppe, and pass through La Leona River, which connects Lake Argentino and Lake Viedma, and where you’ll get to see La Leona Road house, where the famous thieves Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid hid for a while. After discovering some other gems along your journey, you’ll reach El Chaltén and we’ll drop you off at your hotel.

 

El Chaltén is the top-rated hiking destination in Argentina. This charming little village sits at the foot of Mount Fitz Roy and it’s surrounded by glaciers, lakes, rivers and forests. It’s also the jumping-off point for most hiking trails in the area. A paradise for sunny walkers and trekkers alike.

 

Enjoy your first afternoon of leisure in Patagonia by relaxing in the local brewery or strolling around a little waterfall…

Day 2 – Hiking in Chalten:Recommendation #1

 

Patagonia hiking is an amazing experience in Argentina Hike to Cerro Torre viewpoint (self-guided paths)

 

Today, you should be prepared for an exciting journey into the wild. El Chaltén offers a wide range of hiking paths with varied difficulty. You can choose where and when to go, since paths are self-guided and very well marked and maintained. Before starting any hiking trail, it’s important to stop by the National Park Visitors’ Center to check the conditions of each hiking path.

 

From the main door of your hotel, you can go for an easy 2-mile walk to Cerro Torre viewpoint — it will only take you around 1 hour. Enjoy the sounds of Rio de las Vueltas, take in some amazing views of the lenga forest, and be prepared to see all kinds of birds—this is a great woodpecker-spotting opportunity!

Day 3 – El Chalten: Recommendation #2

 

Patagonia hiking is an amazing experience in Argentina Hike to Laguna Torre (self-guided paths)

 

Today, we have a recommendation for true hiking-lovers: trek all the way to Cerro Torre and Laguna Torre, one of the most famous hiking trails in the area. Step into the wild for about 8 hours and 12 miles. This is a moderate-difficulty hike, but there is no steep climbing involved, so no previous experience is required!

  

The journey starts at a notable wooden sign which reads ‘Laguna Torre’ and features a  woodpecker; you probably already saw the sign if you visited the Cerro Torre Viewpoint the previous day. From there, you will continue through a stunning, multi-colored landscape; snow-capped mountains will rein over the native forest of lenga and ñire trees. You’ll pass by the De Agostini campsite and continue to the front moraine…you can hit the summit in 15 minutes! From here you can descend to the lagoon and watch the floating icebergs, or continue to the Mascardi viewpoint, 1 mile up the hill.

Day 4 – El Chalten. Recommendation #3

 

Patagonia hiking is an amazing experience in Argentina Mt. Fitz Roy: The top hiking experience of your 2-week Argentina exploration!  

 

If you liked the Laguna Torre’s hiking trail, you’ll love our next hiking favorite: Laguna de los Tres and the base of Mount Fitz Roy. Go for a medium-difficulty, 9-hour hike to the most impressive views of Rio de Las Vueltas valley. You’ll cross Del Salto Stream, with its icy waters cradled by orange-tinted rocks which frame the breathtaking views of Mount Fitz Roy.

 

And here’s a little secret: you can also reach Laguna Sucia from Laguna de los Tres… it’s only a 5- minute walk away. Though this hike increases in intensity during the last bit, it’s totally worth it. This is one of the best day-hikes in the world!  

 

 

Say Hueque Tips

 

Seize the day, wake up early, and watch the sunrise at Laguna de los Tres (see Fitz Roy’s peaks turning red) — this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You can depart from the town of El Chaltén during the night or stay one night at Poincenot campsite, just 1 hour away from Laguna de los Tres.

Day 5 – From El Chalten to El Calafate

 

Take a bus back to El Calafate, home of Perito Moreno Glacier

 

Enjoy an early walk around town or a quick hike this morning. We recommend that you walk to El Chorrillo del Salto, 1 hour away from the village, and reach its little waterfall encircled by native trees and flora, like the Patagonian Orchid.

 

Bear in mind that in the afternoon you will board your bus back to El Calafate, so you need to be back in time. The 3-hour drive back will be a good opportunity to relax while enjoying the passing landscapes out your window.

 

Once you arrive in El Calafate, the bus will drop you off at your hotel. Now is your chance to try some tender Patagonian Lamb, or maybe a heavenly Calafate ice-cream. In Calafate, food options are varied and plentiful; from veggie delicacies to the best demonstration of national steaks, there really is something for everyone. You can choose a fancy restaurant for dinner, or a more traditional local tavern to spend an unforgettable night.

Day 6 – El Calafate: Land of Glaciers

 

Perito Moreno Glacier, the gem of Patagonia Take a tour to Perito Moreno Glacier, and a boat ride!

 

 In the morning, we’ll drive you to Glaciers National Park to begin the 6-hour Perito Moreno Glacier Tour and meet the most famous glacier of all of our Argentina and Chile tours designed to discover Patagonia. Today we’re going to play with the giants!

 

Glaciers National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981 and is home to approximately 200 glaciers. Half of this park is occupied by the campo de hielo patagónico (Patagonian ice field), the largest ice field in the world, after Antarctica.

 

You will travel about 25 miles from El Calafate to the park, enjoying the views of the Patagonian steppe. Once inside the park you will take the walkways to explore the different viewpoints, and you’ll feel unbelievably close to Perito Moreno Glacier. If you’re lucky, you may get to see a piece of ice break off and fall from the glacier wall and sink forever into the lake below.

 

Over the course of about one hour, a bilingual guide will provide you with all the information you might want to know…and things you may have never thought about. After this visit, you will take a boat ride that will bring you close enough to fully appreciate the 262 foot-high ice walls of Perito Moreno! You’ll never feel closer to this gigantic and impressive natural masterpiece.

Day 7 – Your Free Day in El Calafate

 

Travel to Argentina and Enjoya Horse Back Ride Take a tour to a traditional Patagonian ranch in Argentina

 

El Calafate has much more to offer than its haunting glaciers… We recommend that you complete this 2-week adventure in Argentina by taking a day tour (not included) to immerse yourself in the rural culture of Patagonia.

 

Inside Glaciers National Park, at the end of National Route 15 and after a 1 hr 30 min drive over a rubble road, sits one of the oldest and most traditional Patagonian ranches in the area. It’s the only ranch that continues to maintain sheep and Hereford cattle-breeding as its main occupation. You can take a day trip to visit its 30,000 acres of land, learn about its history, and witness a sheep-shearing demonstration and horse-training. At the end of the day, a grilled lambed will await, sizzling on its traditional Patagonian rotisserie.

Day 8 – Travel to Chile: Trek in Torres del Paine National Park

 

Travel to Argentna and stay at the best hotels & refuges Stay at the National Park and enjoy Torres del Paine’s famous day treks

 

In the early morning, we’ll pick you up to start your trip to Chile and your full-day visit to Torres del Paine National Park. It’s going to be a long day, but it’s worth every minute.

 

First, we’ll drive through the Patagonian steppe for 2hr 30min (you might be able to see rheas, guanacos, Patagonian hare, and even condors!) until reaching the border of Chile in Cancha Carrera, where we’ll go through customs.

 

Things to take into account during your trip from Argentina to Chile: it is not allowed to take any fresh food, plants, seeds, etc. They are very strict, and fines can be high. If you are not sure whether something is allowed, please declare it (they will provide you with a form) and they will inform you if you can bring it or not. And please, don’t forget your passport!

  

We’ll keep traveling through isolated and windy landscapes, occasionally dotted by guanacos and native green-orange-tinted bushes; you’ll truly feel the momentous solitude which characterizes Patagonia.Torres del Paine is a gift that keeps on giving; it will unveil its enthralling natural beauties little by little… 

 

Along a winding road, we’ll make different stops to have a close-up view of various attractions like Cascada Paine (Paine Waterfall), Paine Range at Lake Sarmiento, and the Paine Horns at Lake Nordenskjold. Depending on the weather, we’ll depart on an hour-long walk to reach the lake and get closer to the striking mountain peaks. At midday, after having stopped by the Lago Pehoé Viewpoint to gaze at the vastness of the French Valley, we’ll have our boxed lunch with this mountainous backdrop. 

 

At the end of this dreamy excursion, we’ll leave you at Laguna Amarga, where your transfer will pick you up and take you to your hotel inside the park.

Day 9 – Torres del Paine Tours: Recommendation #1

 

Patagonia hiking is an amazing experience in Argentina The most famous Torres del Paine trek: ‘Base las Torres’ 

 

Torres del Paine is one of the most beautiful protected areas of South America, and the best way to explore it is by foot. If you like hiking and nature, this should be one of the highlights of your trip. Depending on which area of the Park you are staying in, you will be able to explore different paths — please check with your travel advisor about which are the best options from your location.

 

Our recommendation is to make a solo hike to Base de las Torres del Paine. This is the most famous hike in the park since it takes you to the base of the Paine Horns (8500 f.o.s.l.), a challenge for climbers all over the world. It takes 8-10 hours round-trip. 

 

The first 2 hours of the trek are very tiring, since you are walking up, leaving the valley where the Hosteria and Refuge Torres del Paine are located. You’ll cross Ascensio Valley, taking its winding path and gazing over Ascensio River until getting to the first stop, Refugio El Chileno. From here, you’ll continue for one hour through a lenga forest — the changing landscapes will combat any tiredness! 

 

You’ll finally get to the moraine; the last beat of the trek, and the hardest. The last hour will be an uphill climb, but take your time, you’ll definitely make it to the top! Every effort will be compensated with breathtaking views of these massive granite mountains that grow past a blue lake and up to the sky.

Day 10 – Lake Crossing and The French Valley Trek

 

Tour to South America and see its incredible mountains Trek into the ‘Heart of Torres del Paine’

 

Today, prepare to continue this hiking adventure on the other side of the park.  We’ll pick you up at your accommodation to take you on a 1-hour ride to the Pudeto area, where you will take a 45-minute navigation to the opposite shore of Lago Pehoé.

 

You can take a day pack with your valuables and the things you might need for today and tomorrow — for your convenience, our local operator can keep your heavier luggage until tomorrow. Please just let us know in advance.  Upon your arrival, you’ll go to Paine Grande Refuge (very close to the dock), where you’ll stay overnight. 

 

From here, we recommend that you enjoy the French Valley Hike (not included). This is a unique opportunity to visit one of the least-accessible areas inside the park, since there is no road nearby. But, with your own two legs, you’ll definitely make it! 

 

What will you find in the French Valley? Hanging glaciers, pristine woods, and some daunting jagged peaks: the multi-colored Paine Grande and the forbidding Paine Horns. You can also cross the rope bridge over the French River to reach some stunning views of the French Glacier, or continue to the French Valley Plateau, or down to the Pehoé River and the glacier.

 

Take into account that, these last two options, though amazing experiences, will demand an extra effort since you’ll have to hike a rocky path alongside the moraine. You will get back to the campsite by skirting Lake Skottberg.

Day 11 – Glaciar Grey Navigation - Travel to Puerto Natales

 

Adventure in Argentina means a boat trip! Enjoy a boat tour for your last day in Torres del Paine

 

In the early morning, after enjoying a delicious breakfast, you will hike approximately 4 hours from Refugio Paine Grande to the Grey Mountain Hut. This is an amazing hike which will lead you to the shores of Grey Lake and its floating glaciers, with stunning views of the massive Southern Ice Field and the Grey Glacier that blend together and extend their white cloak far beyond what the eyes can see.

 

You already have a boat scheduled for later this day. Right after the hike, you’ll embark on a cruise from Grey Lake’s beach, and after crossing the blue waters, filled with floating icebergs and dramatically framed by glaciers and snow-capped mountains, you’ll get to Hosteria Grey. When you arrive, a transfer will be waiting to take you on a 4-hour trip through dry, mountainous steppes to finally reach Puerto Natales, where you’ll spend the night.

Day 12 – From Puerto Natales to Punta Arenas

 

‘Punta Arenas’: The end of your trip through Chilean Patagonia

 

Today you’ll make your way to the bus station of Puerto Natales to depart to Punta Arenas. We advise arriving there 30 minutes before the departure time, in order to avoid any last-minute inconveniences. This is a 4-hour trip in a standard bus through the steppe, crisscrossed by mountains and fjords. Upon your arrival at the bus station in Punta Arenas, you’ll head to your hotel — you can walk or take a taxi for around $5-7 US dollars.

 

Punta Arenas is the southernmost city in Chile, located on the Magellanic Strait, and is the leading port for Antarctic cruises and scientific research. Before the construction of the Panama Canal, Punta Arenas was the most important maritime crossroad between the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean, and thus, the city grew as a commercial center surrounded by European-style buildings. Its colorful houses, standing out from a backdrop of snow-capped mountains, are a site for sore eyes. 

 

What should you do in Punta Arenas? You can enjoy the evening by taking a 3-hour city tour to learn about Chilean history, visit the Mirador Hill (and get the most gorgeous views of Magellan Strait), or stop by the Maggiorino Borgatello Museum to see the masterfully crafted pieces made by the Onas, Yaganes and other natives of the area.

Day 13 – Back to Argentina: Travel to Ushuaia

 

Make a trip to Ushuaia, the southernmost city of Argentina, via bus

 

In the early morning, you will get to the bus station to embark on a full-day bus trip to Ushuaia, the last destination of your 16-day trip in Argentina and Chile. Take into account that you’ll be crossing borders again today!

 

This is a 12-hour trip in a comfortable bus, equipped with reclining seats, where you’ll cross the Patagonian steppe. Look out the window and you’ll see yellow and green grasslands with Chilean gauchos riding into the wild and grazing unbothered sheep, until you reach the ferry crossing. It will take around 45 minutes to cross the mythical Strait of Magellan and hit the road again to cross the Chilean border, finally entering Tierra del Fuego Island on Argentine soil.

 

As the famous end-of-the-world city approaches, grazing sheep will turn into wild guanacos and horses, with snow-capped mountains and evergreen woods arising at the entrance of Ushuaia. Once you get your “Southernmost City” passport stamp, you’ll realize that this intrepid journey through remote Patagonian roads was absolutely worth it.

  

Upon arrival in Ushuaia, you will journey to your hotel (taxis to and from the bus station should cost less than $10 US dollars). Ushuaia is a small town, and it is really easy to get around on foot. The Yamanas, the region’s first inhabitants, first called the area ‘Ushuaia’, which means “protected bay” in their language. Ushuaia was officially incorporated into the Republic of Argentina in 1884, and it soon became a penal colony, in order to establish a permanent Argentine settlement.

 

Take the afternoon to explore the town, learn about the region’s rich history at the Prisoners’ Museum, or visit the Galleria of Fuegian History (it has a lovely restaurant as well!). Please, don’t forget the local gastronomy! Ushuaia has the best seafood in Argentina.    

 

*This bus trip allows you to see the landscape of other, lesser-known parts of Chile, and will give you a much more complete perspective of the area. However, we understand that it is a long journey, and can be a very tiring day. For an additional cost, you can choose a less adventurous option; from Torres del Paine, you can drive back to El Calafate and then fly to Ushuaia.

You’ve arrived to the edge of the world… and there are two seafood dishes that you absolutely MUST taste: the Blake Hake and King crab. Our Ushuaia Travel Guide will point you in the direction of the best restaurants in town.

Day 14 – Ushuaia: Visit the National Park

 

Patagonia hiking is an amazing experience in Argentina Trekking & Canoeing in Yamana land

 

Today we’ll pick you up to enjoy a 10-hour, moderate difficulty, visit to Tierra del Fuego National Park, just 7.4 miles away from the city and perched on the shore of the famous channel sailed by Charles Darwin.

 

Once at Ensenada Bay, you will have time to enjoy the view over the Beagle Channel before you start hiking along the coast. Four miles of wild trail awaits you, where you’ll discover native flora, wild fauna and the remains left by the Yamanas, the native inhabitants of the area. After this 3-hour hike, you will reach Lake Roca, where lunch will be served.

 

After a full homemade picnic, you will start the second part of this adventure. Grab your oar and plunge in to start a 1hr 30min canoeing trip along the Lapataia river (only available for children over 5 years old). Make it all the way to Lapataia Bay! This is one of the most famous tours in Argentina, since it takes you to the awe-inspiring landscape at the end of the Panamerican Highway and legendary National Route 3. 

 

After discovering the unique vastness of this setting, we’ll take you back to your hotel to rest and enjoy another Patagonian evening.

Day 15 – Ushuaia: Beagle Channel Cruise

 

Adventure in Argentina means a boat trip! Tour along the border between Argentina and Chile and visit Ushuaia’s iconic islands 

 

In 1833 Charles Darwin sailed the Beagle Channel and found something great. Today it’s your turn: become another explorer of this channel, primitively named Onashaga Channel since the Onas where its first discoverers.

 

Make your way to the tourist pier (located downtown) to embark on a 4-hour Beagle Channel navigation on a fully equipped boat with a capacity for up to 26 people. Argentina standing at your left and Chile at your right, you’ll sail this natural border until reaching the iconic Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, which is still in operation.

 

On the way, enjoy uplifting panoramic views of Ushuaia Bay, crowned by the Martial Glacier’s diverse marine wildlife, such as cormorants (flying birds, closely related to penguins) and fur seals. Hop off on Bridges Island to explore its vegetation and visit the archeological remains of the Yámanas (the native inhabitants) accompanied by a specialized bilingual guide. 

 

During the trip, enjoy bottomless hot cocoa and cookies, or try the maté (loose herbal tea), which is every Argentinian’s favorite drink.  Once we get back to the port, you can make your way back to your hotel or stop in a local cafe or brewery to enjoy an amber craft beer paired with a traditional Patagonian appetizer.

 

 

 

Say Hueque Tips

 

Have you ever walked amongst penguins? If not, Ushuaia is your chance to fulfill that bucket-list dream… you can switch out the Beagle Channel Navigation to take the Magellanic Penguin Rookery Tour on Martillo Island (available from October to April at an additional cost), or add one day to your Ushuaia itinerary so that you can do both. On Martillo Island you will also see a very rare type of penguin that is typically only found in Antarctica: the yellow-crested penguin.

We would recommend Say Hueque to anyone (and already have).

Say Hueque provided us with a customized itinerary with hotels that exactly matched our request for a mix of sight-seeing in Argentina and hiking in Patagonia (Argentina and Chile). All travel arrangements and tours were pre-arranged for hotel and airport (international and domestic) pick-ups and drop-offs, and these services were right on time and provided by very pleasant and helpful staff. The hotels were great and many of them had excellent restaurants that made it easy to enjoy the local cuisine. Especially memorable were Fierro Hotel (Eco Restaurant), Estancia Helsingfors and Las Torres Hotel.

Given that we did not want to be part of a larger tour group (12-16 people), this approach worked best for us. The booking staff (Lucia and Yuna) and our in-country hostess (Ursula) were all available prior to and during our trip, which made this “bucket-list” 18-day vacation very easy for us at a more-than-competitive cost.

We would recommend Say Hueque to anyone (and already have).

Every day was fun and loaded with new experiences.

Hi there Patricia... I did enjoy my trip and happily will provide recommendations.

I think I first heard about your company through Trip Advisor.
The more I interacted with Silvia, during my research and fact-finding, the more I became comfortable with your company. She was excellent support during those early days of planning. I'm sorry to hear she is no longer with your company - I hope it was a mutually agreed separation.

Every day was fun and loaded with new experiences.

Of the hotels I enjoyed Los Cuernos most because the environment and staff were very casual, relaxed and fun to be with.
The excursions were all good and different. But, I love mountains most.

There were definitely some disconnect and miscommunication for our last day departing the Paine Lodge. We were told to expect to see people waiting for us at the other end of the lake (boat ride) -- no one was there and after hours of waiting around and asking from every bus driver and passenger and restaurant workers, TOTALLY concern that we had no way of getting out of there, we finally had our bus and three other bus exchanges before arriving at El Calafate. And we also were given vouchers by your partner at Puerto Natales to go from there back to Puerto Natales, which was not correct and at the time we did not know and we had to guess which instruction to follow. That all ended up being hours of stress and concern al MANY levels.

The trip was fabulous!

Dear Marcela,

Thank you for the email. I have already reviewed Say Hueque on trip advisor on the general site, will add comments to the forum too.

I first learned about Say Hueque from the Internet - reviews and trip advisor.

I decided to travel with you because of your promptness in response, ease of working, good customer service and a good price. Seamless experience - everything was flawless and we did not have to worry.

My favorite hotel is Don Los Cerros at El Chalten - very nice hotel, luxurious, superb location and views, spa - hot tub, good service.

The best excursion was to Laguna De los tres - amazing trek up - difficult but exhilarating - worth the effort once we reached the top.

The trip was fabulous!
