Trip Overview

Day 1

Welcome to Buenos Aires!

Welcome to Buenos Aires! When you arrive at Ezeiza International Airport, our driver will be there to pick you up and take you to your hotel.

Buenos Aires is a city of contrasts waiting for you to explore. This large city has a strong cultural, artistic, and sports community. You'll have a chance to try a wide range of cuisine and experience the vibrant nightlife, highlighted by Argentinian ballroom dancing!

Join your group for dinner at a local restaurant in the heart of Buenos Aires. It's the perfect opportunity to start settling into your surroundings and make new friends.

Day 2

City Tour of Buenos Aires

Today, embark on a walking tour of Buenos Aires, where you'll experience its unique spirit, mystique, and charm. We'll visit iconic locations like Plaza de Mayo, Puerto Madero, La Boca and Caminito, San Telmo, Palermo, and Recoleta. 

After the tour, enjoy an unforgettable night at Palacio Tango with a tango class, a 3-course dinner, and an enticing show before heading out to Patagonia tomorrow!

Day 3

Welcome to El Chaltén

After breakfast, take a local flight to El Calafate in southern Argentina, where your Patagonian adventure will begin. Upon arrival at El Calafate Airport, you will meet your local driver, who will transfer you to your hotel in El Chalten, which is located 3.5 hours away from El Calafate.

During the journey, keep an eye out the window as there are mountains and glaciers at every turn, which makes this corner of Patagonia so unique. Once you arrive in El Chaltén, walk around town with your Trip Leader and enjoy the views of the famous Mount Fitz Roy.

It is important to rest this evening, as tomorrow marks the start of our epic hiking adventure! Have dinner as a group before heading to bed.

Day 4

Trekking Laguna de los Tres

Good morning! After breakfast, head to the trailhead at Rio Electrico, located north of the town.

This all-day trek covers 14 miles (22.5 kilometers) and lasts 10-12 hours, taking you through some of the most stunning scenery in the world. 

The first 6 miles (10 kilometers) of hiking are flat and gentle. It should take around 3-4 hours as you enjoy the majestic views of Fitz Roy, Glaciar Piedras Blancas, and its lagoon. You'll arrive at Poincenot base camp and begin your ascent to the top of Fitz Roy. The 2-kilometer climb is challenging, as you'll have to climb over 400 meters of elevation on a rocky trail.

After reaching the summit, you can enjoy your lunch before returning to base camp. If you cannot get to the top, you can rest here with the group before walking back to the town of El Chaltén.

On the way back to the town, we'll pass by various landscapes and crystal-clear streams. We'll also visit Laguna Capri, a favorite spot for photographers. After visiting the lagoon, we'll drop down into the valley of El Chaltén.

After such an exciting day, why not relax in the town with a beer at a microbrewery or a hot chocolate with homemade cake?

Day 5

Optional Activities in El Chaltén

Today is the perfect day to explore the town of El Chaltén and go on any optional activities you might want to embark on. Here are a few examples:

Hike to Mirador de Los Condors: This hike is ideal for admiring the stunning granite peaks and glaciers beyond El Chaltén.

Hike to Laguna Torre: Laguna Torre is one of the most popular hikes from El Chalten, so put on your hiking boots and get ready for a 13-mile (20-kilometer) trek.

White water Rafting: A 16-kilometer journey through the Río de las Vueltas rapids, offering incredible views and an adrenaline rush.

The day ends with a delicious dinner at The Asadores in El Chaltén, which offers a diverse menu with vegetarian and vegan options.

Day 6

Welcome to El Calafate

After having breakfast, you will be driven back to El Calafate. 

El Calafate, known locally as "Calafate," is a city on the southern shore of Lake Argentino in the Patagonia region. It is famous for its glaciers and offers visitors breathtaking views of ice blocks.

After you have completed the check-in process at your hotel, take some time to explore this beautiful town. You can visit the Laguna Nimez, located at the edge of town. You can enjoy the beautiful views of Lago Argentino and observe several species of birds like flamingos.

Day 7

Perito Moreno Glacier

After having breakfast, drive from El Calafate to the Perito Moreno Glacier. The route around the edge of Lake Argentino is breathtakingly beautiful, and we will make several stops along the way to take photographs. The area is also well known for sightings of condors or eagles flying over the region.

Prepare for an incredible experience at the Perito Moreno Glacier, which includes, as an optional activity, an exciting Mini Trekking adventure.

A perfect way to end this adventurous day is dinner at La Tablita, featuring mouth-watering estancia-style roasted lamb.

Day 8


Wake up to your last Argentinian sunrise and take private ground transportation to El Calafate airport, where you will catch your flight back to Buenos Aires. 

After arriving in Buenos Aires, you will say goodbye to your new friends before boarding your flight home.

U30X Trip Reviews

Traveling with U30X has been life-changing for me. I've made lifelong friends with both travelers and staff. I can't come up with enough good things to say about the company, the people, and the experiences I've had! - Josh K.

There are not enough ways for me to describe how amazing this company is. After my first trip I always told people, it wasn't about the location, but the experience that u30x gave me. I have some of the best experiences of my life with u30x, and now a passion for travel. Also, their alumni community and groups are awesome too! - Casey H.

U30X is such an amazing travel community. Once your trip is over, the experience is not. They keep in touch with their alumni & provide platforms for travel questions, personal development, & community connections in your own backyard! If you're a young person looking to travel I highly recommend U30X! - Heather T.
