  • End of March-April, super weather, price tag for housing is already acceptable and every day on the way of a miracle. The road from Chile Chico with an overnight stay not far from Goubernador took a couple of days, bright sun, no wind and a miracle! Already steering from Ruta 40 to 23, to El Chalten forget about everything in the world, ahead of Fitz Roy! The views are wonderful!

  • I went to Patagonia for a hike in early January. It was the best season, so the weather was good and we had the best time. The last climb was hard, but when I crossed, i had a great view. It is a trip several years ago.
