    Hike and Camp in Cerro Castillo

    7.5 mi / 1640.4 ft gain
    Like most places in Patagonia, the adventure begins the moment you decide on your next destination (if you don't have a car). The start of the hike is in Villa Cerro Castillo. However, because the town is barely 2 streets and only one bus stop, you will have to ask the bus driver to stop at this ...

    Hike to the Hanging Glacier in Parque Nacional Queulat

    2.1 mi / 656.2 ft gain
    Another day, another Patagonian gem waiting to be discovered! Backpacking along the Carretera Austral is perhaps the most magical experience of my life. After having done the trek through Torres Del Paine and Fitz Roy, I thought the best was behind me... until I reached Northern Patagonia. Parque...

    Backpack the 'Q' Circuit in Torres Del Paine

    17.5 mi
    The 'Q' Circuit is simply the 'O' plus the 17.5km section between the Serano Visitors Center and Refugio Paine Grande. To reach Serano Visitors Center simply take the same bus used to do the 'W' or the 'O,' but stay on the bus until the third stop. It may feel strange as half of the people will g...

    Trek El Cerro Castillo in Patagonia

    27 mi / 4500 ft gain
    El Cerro Castillo trek is usually done from East to West, from Las Horquetas curve on route #7 to Villa Cerro Castillo. The reason behind that is because it is easier to reach Las Horquetas sharp curve than leaving it, but also because the view gradually gets better and better that way. When leav...
