LAGUNA DE LOS TRES LOOP Hello family and friends, Today was spectacular! The weather was fantastic and the team hiked to de Los Tres Lake enjoying wonderful views of the Piedras Blancas (Spanish for White Rocks) Glacier, the granite spires of the Mount Fitz Roy massif and several lakes. Team members were in great spirits and highly motivated. Tomorrow we are heading to Pliegue Tumbado hill. They are all looking forward to hiking again in beautiful Patagonia. All the best

Team 2 in Patagonia!


Hello everyone!
The second Team of the season has arrived to Argentinean Patagonia. Yesterday, they hiked to Las Aguilas and Los Condores lookouts performing really well despite some strong gusts of wind. Today, the weather improved and they completed the hike to Laguna Torre.
The colors were fantastic! Team members felt like being immersed in a surreal tridimensional painting. Ty, Ken, Tim, Daniel, Reynold, Kathryn, Ken and Lee Heh send their best to family and friends.
We are attaching a few pictures. Enjoy!
More soon

I enjoyed the trek very much. Terrific location, outstanding guides, nice itinerary. Trip is fabulous.
