SEASON:
Our programs are mostly held from October to the end of April (this is what we call the touristic season). That would be the end of spring, our austral or southern summer, and the beginning of the autumn. Whereas the expeditions to the Southern Ice Field should be done preferably in late spring and early summer, the autumn offers a landscape of fascinating colors in our deciduous Patagonian Andean forest. Hiking, trekking and overnight activities can be carried out all along the season. The days are the longest in December and January and the Park and El Chalten receive the highest number of visitors in January: you are going to see more people in the trails but at the same time the village becomes livelier!! During the winter possibilities are more restricted and limited due to the presence of snow although excellent short hikes can be done in snowshoes or skis in a wonderful white landscape; also, the weather during the winter tends to be more stable, although always cold to extremely cold. Please remember to ask for our assistance before deciding on your trip.

REQUISITES:
Outdoor activities always require of a minimum good physical condition to be able to walk without it possessing a threat to ourselves, as well as good general health. It will be of the highest importance to be well aware of the seasonal, meteorological conditions – especially in glacier programs- ; river crossing, etc, that can vary a lot along the season and even during a day. Difficulty of the programs will imply not only the physical demand or effort that will be required from you in terms of distance and elevation gain or drop but also on many other factors: the amount of days of the circuit (sometimes just camping or only hotels), big expeditions packs without porters, just daypacks, the weather, isolation from the village or medical assistance, circuits in which returning will take a couple of days with no possibilities of helicopter rescue, technical difficulties, terrain, as well as factor that ultimately depend of each of us like different abilities on varying terrains, physical and mental preparation and disposition. The difficulty scale is only for orientation and we follow the scale established by the Santa Cruz Province Tourism Bureau. Please it is very important for you to ask any questions regarding this item in order to a make a good choice and a good preparation.
