A walk around Huemul

Arriving in El Chaltén we were greeted by the towering mountains of Fitz Roy and Torres. Anxious to get off the bike and explore our new surroundings we found backpacks, packed our bags for a few days in the mountains with Anna and head off on a four day trek “Vuelta de Huemul”.

 

Hiking away from El Chaltén the scenery changes from vast open landscapes to native forest …

The next day we arrive at jaw dropping scenery of the Patagonian Southern Ice-field. No where else on earth has an of us experienced anything like this before.

The sheer vastness is humbling …

As we wander away from the ice-fields, over passes and down embankments we are once again in an ever changing landscape.
