From Frey to Jakob | Hut to Hut

5 Days
Category:

A Hut to Hut classic. A  five day programme for those who wish to adventure themselves into a trip that connects two emblematic mountain huts within Nahuel Huapi National Park. The journey takes us through a wide terrain full of challenging descents, colouirs and valleys to enjoy. Depending on the mood and interests of the group, freeride days on Frey or Jakob can be added.  

Food in the mountains
We recommend packing your snacks of choice for those long days in the mountains. Same goes for your favorite beverages. Eating well is key for keeping your strength up out in the wild. And to cope with the loss of appetite, the best you can have is a wide variety of food at your disposal, from sweet to sour and salty. Carrying at least 2 liters if water is essential.  

Accommodation during the trip
At Frey and Jakob huts every service is guaranteed. Dinner and breakfast are included in this bundle. At the huts you will find USB charging stations, restrooms and other amenities  

Travel and rescue insurance
An insurance plan is mandatory to protect yourself from the unexpected. Check with your insurance company on the details about coverage and policies. Feel free to contact us for details or in doubt.

Day 3: From our shelter in the mountains we’ll go out into the backyard with our backpacks very light to enjoy the area near Jakob. With incredible options like Cerro Cella and Constructores, we should have an interesting playground to enjoy.
