TRAVESÍA LAS HORQUETAS
The Las Horquetas Circuit is one of the most popular trails to hike in Patagonia. No crowds, no lodges, just nature and Patagonia at its finest. Our 51 kilometer circuit takes you through the best parts of Cerro Castillo National Park and through two incredible passes so you can stand face to face with the Castillo spires and glaciers. Learn about the native flora and fauna as well as the geological history and formation of this mountain range. Check out our online map for details!
Designated campsites are available along the hiking circuit in hopes of conserving wilderness areas and following official Leave No Trace Principles. We have 6-15 sites available per camping zone where you can easily set up your tent, with close access to water and park bathrooms at each area. There are no hostels or shelters along the circuit, therefore please be sure to read all of our information in the section “Prepare for your Trip”. Our sites offer some of the most spectacular views along the trail!
