Full description
After being picked up at your hotel, hop into a 4x4 vehicle and begin your journey through the Patagonian steppe. Between the cliffs and overlooking the Andes Mountains, the tour focuses on the first contact between expeditionary explorers and the indigenous Tehuelche population.

Upon arriving at the shores of Lake Argentino, listen to an informative talk from your guide about the formation of the landscape, and the native fauna and flora. Drive up the mountain to obtain an incredible panoramic view of the city below and its surroundings.

From there, appreciate the extension of Lake Argentino and the Cordillera de Los Andes. Walk 500 m on foot to the archaeological site as you interpret the meaning of rock paintings and the techniques used to make them. End the tour by enjoying a delicious Patagonian-style lunch in an unforgettable location.
