ACTIVITY / HIKING
We will pick you up at your lodging and then drive towards Cerro Catedral, which is 20 km (12, 5 mi) from the center of our beloved city of Bariloche.
Refugio Emilio Frey is located at 1700 meters above sea level, and it is surrounded by the towering Cerro Catedral’s needles.
On our way we will cross by several streams while enjoying a priviledged view of Lago Gutierrez. Afterwards, we enter the Valle Van Titter where we cross the homonymous stream. Always walking uphill along the trail we reach Refugio Piedritas, a bivouac shelter built with wood under a large rock (it is currently out of service). From there the climb becomes steeper until the Refugio Emilio Frey. For day tours, a snack lunch is included. For an overnight stay tour, dinner and breakfast will be provided by the shelter itself.
