Trek across glaciers in Patagonia

Argentina is one of the few countries where you can get up close to active glaciers. The most popular spot for trekking is the Glacier Perito Moreno, located in El Calafate. This glacier has a surface area of 97-square miles and is the third-largest reserve of fresh water on Earth. 

Ride horses in the Andean Foothills

Hit the slopes in Tierra del Fuego

Go rock climbing in El Chaltén

Sitting on the borders of Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, the mountain village of El Chaltén is a great spot for rock climbers of all abilities. There plenty of options for mountaineering in this area, ranging from short basic routes to multi-day excursions.
