Full description
Start the tour with pickup from your hotel in El Calafate where you will climb into a 4x4 vehicle. Set off on your half-day excursion to explore the lakes and caves of Patagonia. First, drive along the shores of Lake Argentino, the largest lake in the country, and admire the impressive turquoise color of the water with the backdrop of the Andes Mountain Range.  Then, the tour takes an anthropological turn, as you learn more about the first expeditions and indigenous communities of these lands. Learn about the first contact with the Tehuelche world and head into a cave where you can still see 1000-year-old rock paintings. Listen to the interpretations from your guide and feel as if you have stepped back in time.  Finally, enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner in the cave, taking in the views of Lake Argentino and the Andes in the background. At the end of your meal, climb back into the 4x4 and return to El Calafate where you will be dropped off at your hotel and the tour concludes.
