MOUNTAINEERING


Patagonia exerts a powerful impact on us.  It has not only great physical beauty, but also a tangible presence. This presence is due to the remoteness ad loneliness of the land,  and in part to the winds and clouds that sweep across the summits. It is a mountain region that inspires awe in all who are privileged to see it.

HUT BASED MOUNTAINEERING AND SKI MOUNTAINERING PROGRAM

Patagonia Huts offers to “Patagonists” diverse climbing/descents challenges from our Hut. Some of them non technical and traverses around unnamed hills, becoming any one an accomplishment being in Patagonia.

Our mountaineering/ski programs start in Chile Chico with a safety briefing and equipment check. De second day we head to Glacier Hut, the base camp for our trip, considering during winter a commitment of 9 days minimum.

 

HUT BASED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

Outdoor Educational Programs could make use of Glacier Hut, considering special conditions and services during shoulder seasons. The location is the perfect mix for natural interpretation and adventure. It is possible to combine the time in the hut with several activities in the park.
