1. El Calafate: Full-Day Chalten Tour with Hiking
Your day begins at 7:30AM in the morning from El Calafate, from where you will take the mythical Route 40 which borders the Argentino Lake. Following that, cross the Santa Cruz River, before continuing to the La Leona River where you will walk through its canyon until you reach the old hotel of Paso La Leona. There you can enjoy a coffee accompanied by homemade cakes, and from there you will continue skirting the Viedma Lake with the Andes in the background. Before reaching the village you will stop at the viewpoint of the Viedma Glacier from where you will be able to appreciate beautiful panoramic views of the glacier, the Cordillera, and the emblematic Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. You will later arrive at the mountain village of El Chaltén after 3 hours of travel, having traveled a total distance of 220 kilometers. After visiting the interpretation center, there is a walk to Chorrillo del Salto, an impressive waterfall due to its height and surrounding landscape. Towards noon there is lunch in the restaurant, after which optional hikes are offered to the Mirador de los Cóndores and an eagle lookout, both accompanied by your guide. At 4:30PM, you will begin your return to El Calafate.
