San Valentin Expedition with Soren Kruse Ledet

World Expeditions are excited to announce an expedition to Mount San Valentin (4058m) - the highest peak in Patagonia. The location of San Valentin in the middle of the impressive Northern Patagonian Ice Field makes it a tremendous climb in one of the world's most remote and spectacular alpine environments. San Valentin is a challenging expedition, with extreme weather, heavy loads and sled pulling required to access high camp. This expedition is for the highly motivated mountaineer, experienced in cold weather conditions, looking to make a summit attempt on this highly sought after mountain in a truly special alpine wilderness.
