Estancia Los Huemules is a private natural reserve, located some 20km away from El Chaltén where you can enjoy some of the most beautiful forests of the area. A pristine location where few visitors arrive, which is what guarantees us a unique experience of walking and hardly seeing anyone else. Ideal nature walks to enjoy with one of our expert guides. Enjoy the magic of these paths for yourselves!asdas
Suggestion: Los Huemules is beautiful and less busy than the national park itself. If you have time for 2 days of trekking and 1 night in the reserve we don’t think you’ll regret it! If you want to add a day with a bit of adrenalin you may also want to look at spending 2 days in the reserve and include one day of via ferrata and ice trekking!
The Estancia has a lovely network of trails to explore covering about 25km. There is a variety of trails possible – from short 1 hour flattish walking to 3 hours of gentle up hill. The trails are well signposted and path erosion is minimal.
It’s a great place to go walking, away from the crowds and where it’s difficult to bump into someone!
At the entrance there is a Visitors Centre with great information about the reserve, the history of the area, indigenous cultures and flora and fauna. A good place to start before heading off!
For those who want good views and a gentle walk, we recommend visiting the Laguna Azul and the Eléctrico Valley. And those who are after a bit more of a challenge we recommend trekking up Loma del Diablo!
