What an incredible experience!! My boyfriend and I did the 5 day Mt Fitz Roy basecamp trek. Our guide was Luis and we couldn't be happier with our entire trip. We had direct communication with the owner Merlin throughout the booking process up until our arrival. He was very accommodating to my food allergens and had everything and more for the 5 day trek. Luis was an exceptional guy! He was so knowledgeable about literally everything Patagonia and he made our trip even better than what we thought. The views, the food, the people. Would do this again 10/10! Were already planning our next trip back.

We did the 5 day trek/camp through El Chalten. One of the most amazing experiences of my life. Merlin was so helpful and incredible at sufficing details such as making sure my girlfriend had her gluten free meals ready for the trek. Our guide Luis...no words for how amazing he how knowledgeable he was about El Chalten. This was a physically demanding trek and Luis knew by the minute how the terrain would change. The food on the trek was amazing as well. You had to carry it but Merlin really had the best meals packed for us for each day and Luis made sure the meals were prepared at all of our stops. Epic views, epic people, epic trekking company! Definitely go with Merlin’s trekking company for safety, comfort, and wonderful time. Highly recommend!

We have just completed the two day round trip ascent of the mojon rojo with Merlin. A fantastic summit with a fantastic guide. His expertise in planning, weather forecasting and experience provided us with the perfect challenge and we are so grateful. The “mountain gastronomy’” was second to none where all small things made it haute cuisine (fresh cream, gourmet chocolate and beer!) We highly recommend Merlin as a guide - the best in town. we will be back to climb with Merlin at some point in the future U rock!!!! Benjamin and Olivia
