Given the abundance of astounding natural beauty found in Patagonia, it might seem presumptious to call any section of it, or any trek here, Suprema. Having explored Patagonia in depth in every season over several decades, we can confidently call this the region's best adventure.
This itinerary is a mix of day hikes, exploring remote and historical estancias topped off with a five-day circuit of Cerro Huemul that promises to take you to the edge of the Patagonian Ice Cap. The final camp on this short trek is atop a sheer cliff face, aptly called Condor's Nest, looking out over Viedma Lake and Glacier (see header photo of this page, taken from this very spot!). The glacier walk is both atop and below Viedma Glacier, the latter providing your with a unique perspective not available elsewhere in Patagonia. The itinerary ends with a few more day hikes, giving you the opportunity to fully experience and explore exactly how wild Patagonia truly is.
