Hi. me and a mate want to go to argentina december/januuary to trek. We are ignorant of where to go but know that we would prefer medium/hard treks without a guide as we have the kit and some experience. Please any suggestions!! we do not want to pay thousands of dollars when with some common sense and desire we could do it alone.
Thanks for any help guys, any great tips and you can crash for nothing at my place in Santa Marta Colombia, just provide some beer!
If you're experienced and if you speak spanish (that's quite important ), there's a lot you can easily do by yourself. Consider buying the LP guidebook on trekking in the Andes; it contains a number of itineraries in Argentina. What comes to mind are the lower regions of Aconcagua, the Lake District around Bariloche, Torres del Paine, or the cordillera around Cordoba.
Here´s some info about tracks and necesary eq:
Have a nice trip.
my advice: always take a gps...
You can go to the Argentine Patagonia.
Here I found in Google a link with information on that area: http://interpatagonia.com/turismo-aventura/trekking.html
You can also go to the province of Córdoba, you have the Cerro Uritorco, in Capilla del Monte. A very well-known place for trekking/climbing. You have like 4 hours to ascend and 3 hours to get back. I've done it 3 times. Great views at the top!
You have many other hills in Córdoba, you may want to perform a search with the terms "trekking" and "Argentina".

Torres del Paine - you can do at least 5 days treking there - amazing area. Highly recommended.
