Full description
Immerse yourself in Argentina’s dramatic landscapes and take in panoramic views of mountains, glaciers, and lakes. See the nature that played a major role in Darwin’s and Fitz Roy’s research and discover Argentina’s youngest village, El Chaltén, founded in 1985. Start your full-day tour with a pickup from your hotel in El Calafate. Take the legendary Route 40, which runs alongside Lake Argentino with its blue-white glaciers. Cross the Santa Cruz River and listen to stories of Charles Darwin’s and Robert Fitz Roy’s expeditions. Continue to La Leona River, and stop at La Leona Roadhouse, where you can learn the history of Route 40 over a coffee and homemade cake. Travel along the edge of Lake Viedma and see the breathtaking peaks of the Andes mountain range, including Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. In El Chaltén, if you choose to hike a trail, you will be provided with a map and advised of the different trail options to best suit your fitness level. Throughout the year, you can enjoy two short trails to Chorrillo del Salto and Mirador de Los Cóndores. Before nightfall, begin your journey back to El Calafate. Again enjoy a comfortable ride in your private transport vehicle and a convenient drop-off at your hotel after a full day of discovering Argentina’s wilderness.
