Patagonia Hiking

Trip description

Price: U$D 1,850.00.

This hiking tour of backcountry Patagonia is a unique exploration of El Bolsón’s mountain hut trekking circuit.  We combine several days of intermediate guided hiking on little known trails with some horseback riding and a thrilling day of whitewater rafting on the crystal clear waters of the Manso River.

Most of the mountain hut "refugios" on this hiking trail circuit were built well over 30 years ago when a few land owners decided to build their family homes here in the foothills of the Andes.  The houses have remained as well as some of the original families.  Today these huts host weary hikers looking for a place to stop for the night and share a hot meal.  Tent camping is the most common but some refugios have indoor sleeping options and even hot showers!

On this 9 day hiking tour, our guides will take you to 3 of the less visited refugios found on the trails of this region in Patagonia.  After our first day of hiking we will give you the option to hike or horseback ride as we move even further into the backcountry, eventually arriving at Lake Esperanza a turquoise gem hidden in the Andes mountains.
