Argentina Trekking

Argentina tourist hiking in Chalten

Trek to giant glaciers, hike to rainbow-coloured hills and climb to cobalt mountain lakes. Argentina is a trekker’s delight, with changing beauty around every bend. Follow the trails and walkways around thundering Iguazu Falls, get lost in the lonely wilderness surrounding El Chalten, hike up into the lake sprinkled hills of Bariloche and strap on your crampons to explore the Perito Moreno glacier in Patagonia. Argentina truly excels in embracing the wonders of the great outdoors.

Lace up your boots for El Chalten

El Chalten is Argentina’s mecca for trekkers, an empty Patagonian wilderness criss-crossed by scenic, challenging trails. Nestled at the base of the awe-inspiring Fitzroy massif, this enchanting destination offers the perfect opportunity to wander and embrace the joy of getting pleasantly lost. Hike past glassy lagoons, set off in search of hidden waterfalls and climb to viewpoints that will leave you, quite literally, breathless. It’s lonely beauty at its very best.

Trek across giant glaciers

The Perito Moreno Glacier is something that has to be seen to be believed, an endless chunk of cool blue ice stranded in a snowy wilderness. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can strap on some crampons and trek across the glacier itself, a surreal experience that is sure to set your pulse racing. There really is nothing quite like it.

Wander between the highland lakes of Bariloche

Bariloche is an addictive town with a holiday atmosphere surrounded by Andean hills and lakes. Running from the edge of town, there’s a handful of hiking trails just begging to be explored. Set out on foot to reach deep blue lagoons, saunter through alpine forests and soak up the spectacular scenery, all backed by snow topped mountains.

Hike to the Seven-Coloured Hills

The north of Argentina isn’t known for its trekking opportunities, but the Seven-Coloured Hills make an exception to this rule. High above the sunny valleys surrounding Salta, these hills have been striped a rainbow of colours by their mineral content. If you’re staying in Salta, it’s definitely something not be missed and only a couple of hours on foot from the town.
