ItineraryExpand
Day 1
On arrival in Calafate you will be transferred from the airport to the selected hotel for overnight accommodation. The remainder of the day is for leisure to take in the shops or a walk beside the lake where flamings can be seen. It is a good idea to purchase your lunch this afternoon for tomorrow’s tour – it is possible to purchase lunch at the glacier, however it is a more expensive option.
Day 2
This morning you are collected from your hotel, joining an English Speaking guide, for the two hour drive to the glacier. The drive takes us towards the Andes to the edge of the icecap for a full day tour of this impressive glacier that advances across Lago Argentino. We spend several hours wandering the many paths that offer different vantage points of this calving glacier. The glacier is 4 km wide and 70 metres high and descends to the surface of the lake, almost cutting the lake in two. Occasionally massive pieces break off and fall into the lake becoming icebergs and creating huge waves in the process. The groans and creaks of the active glacier precede dramatic falls of the ice face.
Day 3
Depart from your hotel in Calafate for the morning drive across Patagonia and the arid Argentine pampas to Chalten (approx 4 hours), a village in the heart of Los Glaciares National Park from where we make our day trips. We arrive at our hosteria, pick-up our boxed lunch and walk to Laguna Torre (6 hrs return). This is a beautiful walk taking us towards the majestic spire of Cerro Torre. The mountain view, when the weather is clear is truly impressive and makes this a great day hike. Accommodation at Lodge in El Chalten.
Day 4
Full day trekking to Laguna de los Tres. Today we undertake, what many believe is the best hike in Los Glaciares National Park. Our 8 hour walk is quite a long day, but it is worth every step. Those not wishing to take the whole trek may take an easier option. Every turn of the trail offers a new and impressive landscape. Continue towards Laguna de los Tres, passing by Mt. Rosado and Mt. León, skirting Chorrillo del Salto River, with a breathtaking view of Fitz Roy, Saint Exupery and Piedras Blancas massifs. After lunch we will go on to Poincenot camp site. Crossing Río Blanco, we will come to the camp site with the same name where the ascent to Laguna de Los Tres starts, at the foot of Mt. Fitz Roy. We will continue our trek visiting a balcony from where we will have a spectacular view of Laguna Sucia, a beautiful greenish lagoon with small icebergs floating in it, 300 meters below us. Return to El Chaltén. Overnight at hosteria.
