The inter-refuge trekking is a suitable route for all people who like to walk in the mountains and have a normal physical shape. It is not a trek for mountaineers or expert mountaineers, but rather a series of paths that take us through the most beautiful part of the National Park and Huemules where you can enjoy the best views of Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre and the Ice Field . During the trek we spent the night in the forest on the first day but with the aim of finding our chain of shelters located in privileged places. A series of shelters with all the comforts to have a very pleasant stay.
It is a trek that plunges into forests, vertical paths, lagoons with unique landscapes and skies that mark a life. a trek that crosses a calm and at the same time wild terrain.
We design the itinerary so that it is attractive for everyone, being able to stop and thus enjoy the best landscapes.
En los meses de Noviembre a Marzo tenemos nuestras salidas en grupo programadas. Tanto si viajas solo/a, en pareja o un grupo de amigos pero os gusta mezclaros con mas gente y buscar nuevas amistades esta es vuestra mejor opción.

We need to tell you about the special weather in Patagonia and simply warn that sometimes the wind is not on our side, so we have to have the possibility of varying some of the days of the trek such as the ascent to Laguna de los Tres or the route between our shelters such as the Marconi Station much more exposed to bad weather and Patagonian winds.
In this case, we could contemplate the possibility of going
around for the 30th Anniversary and going directly to Cagliero Post where we would have to cross a zip line and
be able to enjoy the Patagonian forest in another way.
