What to Expect

This tour features a combination of uneven footpaths and rocky, irregular terrain over hills and valleys. Most of our walks are on National Park trails, and you can modify the length or duration of them to suit your endurance. Ice trekking on the Viedma Glacier is included. Appropriate for experienced walkers who are comfortable with ascents and descents. Several of the walks require a transfer from our hotel to the start of the walk. Our tour leaders often use this time in the van for our morning route review, so we can enjoy a more leisurely morning at breakfast.
