The Symposium

Our symposium is an extraordinary chance to meet and mingle with legendary mountaineers, hear their adventurous stories firsthand, learn about pioneering conservation efforts in Patagonia, and enjoy incredible hikes on the famous trails of Los Glaciares National Park, a World Heritage Site of tremendous glaciers and towering spires. There will be daily presentations by our phenomenal Guest Speakers, film screenings, and a choice of hikes each day. Our hotel in the town of El Chaltén, within the protected area of the park, is the perfect “base camp” for our symposium. Our symposium begins with an overnight in Buenos Aires before heading to the heart of Patagonia.
