RTW #92, Bariloche, Argentina

#113_bariloche28/04/2015 Bariloche was my last proper hiking opportunity for a while with Buenos Aires and then Uruguay as the next destinations. I made the most of the time by hiking for 3 days and 2 nights through the great landscapes of Argentina’s Lake District, scrambling up steep cliffs and camping on the peaks with some incredible views.

RTW #91, Villa la Angostura, Argentina

#112_villalaangostura27/04/2015 I finally made it to Argentina’s Lake District with Villa la Angostura as my entry point. The lovely little town was covered in Volcan Calbuco’s ash and I enjoyed my lonely hike up to one of the nearby mountains, wandering through the bizarre looking landscape.

Video from Argentina, Patagonia Part 2

#89_argentina_elchalten_pasodelcuadrado

The day after our emergency fire at snowy Laguna Piedras Blanca offered us a lot of sun and perfect hiking conditions. Rene decided to return to El Chaltén while I was starting the steep ascend to Paso del Cuadrado, eventually spending another freezing und unforgettable night in the snow at 1800m. Leaving the Fitz Roy Skyline in perfect weather conditions behind, I completed my last hikes to Mirador de la Loma, Los Cóndores & Las Águilas before setting an end to my trip in Argentina’s Patagonia by visiting the breathtaking glacier Perito Moreno near El Calafate. I also squeezed in some of the Bouldering from Ushuaia 🙂 Read the rest of this entry »

Live #79, Ushuaia Bouldering, Argentina

#100_ushuaia205/04/2015 After my unfinished hike to Cerro del medio, I had one more thing on my wish list down in Argentina’s most southern town of Ushuaia: Go out for some Bouldering! In the end, I was carrying my climbing shoes with me all the time, so I was happy for every opportunity. Luckily, some friends of my Couchsurfing host took me out to some local spots about 30 km east of the town. Read the rest of this entry »

Live #78, Ushuaia, Argentina

#99_ushuaia103/04/2015 My mind was blown away after 10 amazing days in Antarctica and I returned to Ushuaia just in time for the first fresh snow of the year. The town was surrounded by snow covered peaks and I spent half an hour just looking at them while breathing in the clear crisp air around me. I would spent some days here for a hike before taking the road up north towards one of the bridges that connects the island Tierra del Fuego with the mainland of Argentina.

Video from Argentina, Patagonia Part 1

#88_argentina_elchalten_piedrasblancas

A lot of stuff happened back in March 2015 during my two weeks of hiking in the El Chaltén region in the Argentinean portion of Patagonia. In this first part, you will see El Calafate, the hikes to Laguna de los Tres, Laguna Torres, Loma de las Pizarras and finally, the first half of the hike to Paso del Cuadrado until we got stuck in a snowstorm and had to put up an emergency shelter at Laguna Piedras Blanca.
