Follow one of the most impressive trekking routes in Argentina with this crossing from El Chaltén to Villa O'Higgins. This is an unforgettable experience for your visit to Patagonia.

El Chalten to Villa O'Higgins Trek

At 8 am, we will pick you up by bus from your accommodation in El Chaltén, before taking a two-hour drive to the southern tip of Lago del Desierto (Desert Lake).

Once there, we will board the boat which will sail for an hour along the idyllic waters while we enjoy the beautiful views. When you reach the northern tip, you will process your documents so you can leave Argentina and cross the border into Chile.

After this brief stop, it will be time to start an exciting 14-mile trek. For approximately six hours, depending on your physical condition, you will walk through forests, mountains, and lakes - a pure natural paradise!

At the end of the route, you will reach Candelario Mansilla where, at 5:30 pm, you will board another boat that will take you across Lake O'Higgins to Puerto Bahamondez. There, a bus will be waiting for you to drive you to your final destination: Villa O'Higgins.

2-day route

If you prefer to go at a slower pace and do the route in two days, then this is also possible. In this case, you must book your own accommodation in Candelario Mansilla. You will cross Lake O'Higgins the next day at 5:30 pm.

Necessary documentation

Remember that you will be crossing the border into Chile, so you require all the necessary documentation.
