ITINERARY

DAY 1
El Calafate to El Chaltén

The day begins with a transfer from El Calafate to El Chaltén, a tiny outpost next to Los Glaciares National Park which lies at the foot of the breathtaking Mount Fitz Roy. Our route takes us across remote dirt roads passing through open pampas along the northern side of the picturesque Lago Viedma. As we drive, we watch the granite fin of Mt. Fitz Roy rise up behind the turquoise waters of the lakes.  Once at our hotel we are free to relax and enjoy the evening. Overnight Hosteria Senderos

DAY 2
Laguna Torre

After breakfast, we hike to Laguna Torre a stunning mountain lake with Mount Torre as the backdrop. We hike along the scenic Cerro Torre trail to Base Camp de Agostini and finally Laguna Torre. Here we will take in the western view of Cerro Torre and the Adela Range, watching icebergs float on Laguna Torre as the winds sends them adrift. Following a picnic lunch, we return to our hotel via the same route. Overnight Hosteria Senderos

DAY 3
Laguna Los Tres

After breakfast we begin our hike towards Laguna Capri, passing its northern corner and follow the Fitz Roy trail to the Rio Blanco. Along our route, we will enjoy a variety of colorful flowers and several bird species. Finally, we ascend the steep zig-zag trail to Laguna de Los Tres; we are greeted with the stunning scenery of Mt. Fits Roy and the turquoise blue waters below. Following a picnic lunch, we return to our hotel via the same route. Overnight Hosteria Senderos

DAY 4
Loma Del Pliegue Tumbado & El Calafate

Today we will take the path less traveled.  As we ascend we will cross small streams and weave in and out through the Lenga forest. The trial widens briefly, allowing for panoramic views of Mount Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre and Huemul Glacier. Upon exiting the forest the landscape changes dramatically to a rocky alpine terrain. On this section of the trail the strong Patagonian winds will be present.  From the lookout we will enjoy the stunning views of the Fitz Roy River Canyon, Cerro Torre and the glacier, Madre and Hija Lagoons, Mount Fitz Roy and the Cóndor Lagoon. We return to El Chaltén via the same trail, gather our luggage and transfer back to El Calafate. Once in El Calafate you are free to relax and enjoy the evening. Overnight Hosteria Sierra Nevada

DAY 5
Perito Moreno Glacier

After an early breakfast we drive approximately 2 hours to reach Los Galciares National Park. From here we continue on to Bajo de las Sombras bay where we board a boat; a 20 minute ride on Lago Rico gets us to the southern wall of the glacier. After an informational briefing from our guild, we will put on our crampons and begin the ice trek adventure. Surrounded by spectacular views of the glacier and landscape, the trek completion is celebrated at an ice bar that serves whisky on freshly chopped glacier ice. Following lunch, we continue to the footbridges with multiple viewpoints of the glacier’s incredible north side. Here we are free to enjoy at our leisure and after we drive back to Calafate for our final night. Overnight Hosteria Sierra Nevada
