Are you someone who seeks out the amazing remote high places of the world that the crowds haven't discovered yet? Then the Mountaineers adventure to the remote, stunning northern Patagonian Andes is just the place!

Everyone has heard of the towers and glaciers of south Patagonia, but many guides in the region say, on their own free time, their favorite place to backpack and trek is in the North!

The lakes district of Argentina and Chile is often likened to Switzerland for its high peaks and profusion of alpine lakes. The area is serviced by an excellent system of trails, cozy mountain huts and lovely backcountry camps, though rugged enough and with enough nearby summits to attract those who want more adventure! And this region also features dozens of snow-capped volcanoes, including 11,453' Mt Tronador and 8701' Osorno, accessible for hiking and climbing.

Come check out the 'greatest hits' of this amazing region with your fellow Mountaineers! Back to back trip segments are scheduled for February 29 to May 9, crossing Nahuel Huapi National Park in Argentina, and May 10-16 of 2016 among the volcanoes and lakes of Chile's Lakes District.  

The trip is fully guided, and we'll stay in a mixture of hotels, mountain huts and backcountry camps, with all food provided.On the Nahuel Huapi adventure, you can carry your own camping gear or hire a porter and carry only a daypack.  

There's still room for you, but you need to act quickly! Check out these fun back to back trips to trek across Nahuel Huapi National Park or  trek Chilean volcanoes, lakes, and deep granite valleys
