    4.0 - Good

    We (age 65, 67) enjoyed the VIVA Southern Explorer (12 days, El Chalten to Ushuaia) January, 2018, visiting national parks in Argentina and Chile. Regarding the 20 km, 800 m elev gain hikes, the VIVA website states, "most hikers complete in eight hours." That's because they don't allow more time. Slower but capable hikers are STRONGLY encouraged to take easier nature walks, leaving only faster hikers to take the longer treks with the required experienced local guide. At a quick pace, the 20km hikes are more challenging than necessary. The trails are safe and easy to follow, as many individuals go without a guide. Yes, Mirador los Torres in TdP is steep at the end, but not impossible, provided that you have recent mountain hiking experience with similar elevation changes. Under the YDS, Yosemite Decimal System, most of that trail is Class I, some at the end Class II. So if you want to take longer than 8 hours on such trails, do so outside an organized tour. Local roads are passable to an automobile, which could be rented in El Chalten or Punta Arenas.
