PATAGONIA PARK ADVENTURE AND MONTE SAN LORENZO ALPINE TRAVERSE

Patagonia Huts has designed an adventure in Patagonia National Park with a mountaineering experience in Mount San Lorenzo

You will camp on ice and rock, living an experience beyond of trekking through the forests.

To be able to be part of this journey, you need to have “mountain sense” and some technical knowledge that you can get from the Pathfinder Program of Patagonia Huts.

Patagonia National Park Chile and Argentina

We start the trip in Chile Chico, driving back in time to the original Patagonia:

Walking around the rock formations in Monte Zeballos, besides the Meseta Buenos Aires on the Argentinian side. 

Visiting the house of the British/ Argentinenan pioneer of the region and the Information Centre of the Park.

Observing how the grasslands and wetlands of the Patagonian steppe have regenerated, and now are open spaces for guanaco herds. As well as lakes with flamingos and several birds.

San Lorenzo Mountaineering Experience

We continue to the Fundo San Lorenzo, to start our journey the next morning:

We will walk towards the refuge of Alberto de Agostini, where we will access to the mountain to look for a route to the west. Descending the next day in the Cordón Cochrane and sleep in the Fundo Camp.

On the last day, we return to Chile Chico along the Carretera Austral. Driving besides the huge whitewaters of the most voluminous Chilean River and General Carrera Lake.  One of the most beautiful scenic roads in Patagonia.
