1. Full-Day Tour to El Chalten from El Calafate with Lunch
Spend some time exploring nature with a full-day in El Chalten, home to Los Glaciares National Park. Begin by departing El Calafate in the morning along Route 40, an iconic highway goes along the Argentino Lake up to the La Leona River. Passing the Cañadón La Leona, you will stop at an ancient hotel for a break to buy coffee and cakes. Continue along the Lake Viedma for magical views of glaciers, hidden lakes, and the glory that is Mt. Fitz Roy. After several photos stops, arrive in the Andean village El Chaltén, also known as the "The Capital of the Trekking." Here you will visit the Interpretation Centre before setting out on a hiking journey. From The Pudu Lodge, you will start a self-guided trek to one of the miradors of the Mount Fitz Roy and Mount Torre. You will be given a map and lunch to bring with you as you follow the clearly marked tracks. You may consider the DeAgostini base camp - Laguna Torre hike, one of the most classic treks. It takes you up to the Adela range and the incredible Lagoon Torre, where you might find a number of icebergs that have slid down from the face of the glacier Cerro Torre. If you are seeking something shorter, the Laguna Capri Trail is a great option that offers unforgettable views of Mt. Fitz Roy.
