8-Day Southern Ice Field Expedition Around Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy

8-Day Southern Ice Field Expedition Around Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy

Your 8-day trek will take you to the Southern Ice field as you will circle both Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre mountains and walk off Paso del Viento.

Some previous mountain experience is required, but no technical skills in crampons and snowshoes is needed. You also need an excellent physical condition and hiking skills to face long hiking days, steep paths and heavy backpacks. Your tour includes meals, a professional mountain guide and some equipment.

The Patagonia Ice Field is the third biggest mass of ice in the world after Antarctica and Greenland, and the biggest if you think outside the polar surface. You will have a chance to hike this circle on a 55-mile, 8-day trek entering through the Marconi Glacier and into the amazing mass of ice, where only a few people have been. See itinerary for full details.
