Are you an avid mountain climber? Then a visit to Patagonia is an absolute must. Western Argentina, which borders with Chile, abounds with mountains that offer epic climbs and Andean landscapes that will leave you speechless.
The Nahuel Huapi National Park, which extends over almost 2 million acres, will satisfy all your trekking or skiing desires. Here, you will find mountains, forests, lakes and perhaps even unique animal species like the Andean condor or the Pudu, the world's smallest deer and no bigger than a hare.
An ideal destination for scaling the summits of the Nahuel Nuapi Park is Cerro Catedral, a 7,835-foot peak and renowned ski resort. For this ascent, use your local Evaneos agency to book a night at the Refugio Frey, located in the heart of the mountains, where you'll be welcomed with incredible views.
If you would like to experience an adventure that rivals the wildest expeditions of the mountaineering pioneers, then make sure to scale Cerro Torre. This 10,177-foot peak has long been considered the most difficult mountain in the world to climb. Reaching this summit will represent the ultimate challenge for climbers.
