Trekking in Piedra del Fraile
Full-day trek from El Chalten for £165pp
For many, trekking in Patagonia is all about the snow-capped peaks and tough climbs, but as this full-day trek in Piedra del Fraile shows, there's another, softer side to trekking in Patagonia as well - perhaps less dramatic, but certainly no less beautiful...
Day One – Piedra del Fraile Trekking
We will pick you up this morning and drive north out of El Chalten before leaving our vehicle behind and heading out for a moderate trek through the beautiful countryside around Piedra del Fraile, with its tranquil lenga forests, swift-running streams and spectacular mountain scenery. We will stop for a lunch at a very special viewpoint where you have a unique view of Mount Fitzroy’s north-west wall, before heading back to our vehicle via a different route to enable us to enjoy some more of this beautiful region.

Our standard price for this Piedra del Fraile trek is £165 per person, which includes your guide and transport, and a boxed lunch.
We can fit this trek into just about any of our holidays in Argentina, although for most of them we will also need to include transportation between El Calafate to El Chalten, and also some overnight accommodation in El Chalten.
