Los Huemules is a private reserve focused on conservation. It´s wild beauty and a bit off the beaten track make it a trekker’s paradise. Treks available for all levels.

We recommend trekking here when you want to spend more time in the El Chaltén area and/or if you want to escape from the crowds at the highlight locations of Fitz Roy and Torre for a couple of days!


Day 1

This morning, we will pick you up together with your guide, to take you from your accommodation in El Chaltén to Estancia Los Huemules (approx. 20 km out of town) where you will be walking for the day. You will be able to leave your main luggage in our office while you are away trekking.

At the visitor´s center you will find interesting information about the reserve and a map with the different possible trails to discover in the area. With your guide you will decide which trails you fancy doing in order to make the most of the day and the weather.

After a great day outdoors you will be returning to your cottage, to enjoy a delicious dinner washed down with a glass of Argentine wine and a good rests night!

Day 2

The day starts with a good breakfast, while discussing which other wild trails you want to enjoy during this second day… another chance to discover more natural beauties hidden in the forest, such as water falls and spectacular views of the Fitz Roy from a different angle!

In the afternoon, we will pick you up -and your luggage-, and take you back to your accommodation in El Chaltén.
