Tronador Glacier Hike

Full Day


After transfering at 7.30 AM from their hotels, participants start this tour at Pampa Linda, in the foot of mount Tronador, 85 km. south of the city of Bariloche. During the two hours ride, some stops allow to appreciate the landscape with Guitiérrez and Mascardi lakes, in the south of Nahuel Huapi National park. The hike begins on a plain and wide trail surrounded by ñir trees and caña colihue forest. After 45 minutes of relaxing walk, the tour reaches the Castaño Overo river where a bridge is crossed to continue through a coihue tree forest on a trail with soft slopes. Then the trails starts ascending, progressively but without difficulty. And after two hours between lenga trees, it arrives to a “cirque glacier” (a bowl-shaped depression on the side of or near mountains with snow and ice accumulation), a trace of the ice age that millions of years ago originated this Patagonian valleys. An impressive 200 meters high rock, with hanging glaciers and several cascades make for an incredible scene. At this location, it is usual to see the Ande’s condor overflying the valley and also the occasional and thunderous glacier breaking (after which mount Tronador was named). After lunch and some relaxing time, the group starts descending to Pampa Linda, not before visiting another glacier, the Ventisquero Negro. That is the birth of the Manso river, which flows into the Pacific ocean connecting the Mascardi, Los Moscos, Hess and Tagua Tagua (Chile) lakes. The tour ends in Bariloche between 6 and 7 PM.
