14-Day Sample Itinerary
Bienvenidos a Chile!
Your guide will pick you up at the Balmaceda airport and help you get settled into your comfortable hotel in Coyhaique. You will go over the trip plans and perform a gear check to make sure that you are ready for an awesome climbing trip. And in the evening everyone goes out for a welcome dinner to celebrate being together in Patagonia.
Enjoy a hearty breakfast and pack your equipment into the vehicle, then head out to tackle your first rock climbs at one of the best crags in Coyhaique. After climbing you have free time to explore town, eat dinner, and get ready to travel to Cerro Castillo.
Today you pack up and head out for 3 days climbing at the newest local hot-spot, Cerro Castillo. You and your crew will explore the many well equipped sport climbing walls during the day and relax in the evening at a beautiful campground in this cute little Patagonia mountain village.
Full day of climbing in Cerro Castillo. If you’re feeling adventurous, your guide will mix it up and show you a fun multipitch climb! Take it easy in the evening and enjoy tranquil vibes around the campfire before a deep, restful sleep.
Fuel up with a big breakfast and get psyched to test your limits. Today your guide will encourage you to tackle something tough and your friends will cheer you on as you climb to new heights. Celebrate with a cold beer or a glass of delicious vino in the evening, and give your body permission to relax – rest day tomorrow.
Today you can take a break and luxuriate in the wildness of the mountains while your bodies recuperate. Eat breakfast slowly. Laugh together. Share piping hot gourds of Yerba Mate. Pack camp unhurriedly and travel down to Chile Chico where grand adventures await. Tonight you stay at Hospederia de la Patagonia in Chile Chico, eat a big dinner, and sleep in a nice bed.
Today you will get your hands on another different rock type in Chile Chico and your guide will continue to give you tips to help you develop new skills. The climbing progression throughout your tour is designed to build up your skills and grow your confidence daily. Just wait til you see what we’ve got planned for you in the coming days.
After breakfast you pack up and drive out to Parque Jeinimeni to meet the Arrieros in charge of portering your supplies on horseback. This allows you to hike with just a daybag (3 hours) to the amazing mountain of basalt columns, Cerro Colorado. Here, you will explore the striking features of the mountain with your expert guide and practice crack climbing, placing gear, and building anchors. With these new skills you will gain confidence to tackle cracks and multipitch climbs later on.
Today is your chance to apply the skills and techniques practiced yesterday. You will climb a variety of single pitch cracks and possibly a multi pitch if you are feeling confident! After a full day of climbing, you’ll enjoy another relaxed night under the stars.
Wake up with the sun and enjoy a chill breakfast in camp before packing up and sending the gear out with the Arrieros. Then travel back to Chile Chico and enjoy hot showers and celebrate with a traditional Asado (South American BBQ). Rest well knowing that you can sleep as long as you like!
Today you wake up to a peaceful morning (yoga, coffee, shower) and take a moment to reflect on how far you’ve come. Think of how amazing it is to be improving your climbing skills in such an amazing Patagonian landscape! Then you say your goodbyes to the friendly staff at the Hospederia and head off to discover new rocks at Ibañez.
Option to climb or take a full rest day. The accommodations tonight are a lovely, well-equipped campground.
Rise and shine happy and well rested. Today you get to explore new rocks at the climbing area Maitenal. Climb as many routes as you feel like while taking opportunities to appreciate the rolling landscape and rugged cliffs! In the evening you have an opportunity to BBQ with the crew and fall asleep content under the stars.
Enjoy the morning at your own pace. Whenever you’re ready your guide will show you another one of the varied cliffs at Maitenal and cheer you on while you crush your latest project. In the afternoon it’s time to return to Coyhaique to eat dinner and sleep in your comfortable hotel.
Today is your last climbing day in Patagonia so give it all you’ve got! Options to test yourself on challenging sport routes, or even gear up for an exciting multipitch adventure high above Coyhaique at Cerro Mackay. Whatever climbing you choose during the day, in the evening you’re all invited out on the town for a feast to celebrate an amazing climbing trip together. Thanks for trusting SAROCKS to show you the best rocks in Central Patagonia.
