Since 1997 we have been officially working in the Argentinean Mountains. Our climbs, expeditions and trekking are developed from “El Champaqui” (Cordoba Province), Aconcagua (Mendoza Province) and all the way down to Patagonia (Rio Negro, Chubut, Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego Provinces).

Our main goal is to make your climbs, expeditions or trek as safe as enjoyable.

Nowadays, our base is in El Chaltén, Santa Cruz, where we are service Providers for Los Glaciares National Park. However, our expeditions and trips are run through out the whole country

You may ask yourself why you should choose us. Three main pillars guide our work.


Safety is number 1 in our list, the safety. Without it we won’t go anywhere. From a day hike to the most technical climb we could offer to you, our number one concern is your safety.

All our guides are certified by the Argentinean Mountain Guides Association (AAGM), which is member of UIAGM/IFMGA (International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations) and Los Glaciares National Park, plus Wilderness First Responder certification

Quality of services

Safety, safety, and then joy. These are your holidays, your free time, your money and your trust put on us, and we are aware of it. That is why, you, our guest, friend, rope mate if you are satisfied, happy and back at home showing pictures to your family and friends or just keeping great memories to yourself, our goal has been achieved!


Personalized work

We prefer to work with small groups. The interaction with our guests-guide, guest-guest is more quality focused. From planning and choosing your adventure till make it happening, we want to be with you helping you out.

When we arrived in El Chalten our idea was to find some information on circumnavigating Monte Fitzroy and Cerro Torre by taking a route onto the ice cap.
