We will start at 7:30 AM with hotel pickups in El Calafate. Once the pickups are completed, we will embark on a journey to the town of El Chaltén (National Capital of Trekking), located 220 km from El Calafate. During our journey, we will cross the Santa Cruz River and make a brief stop at Estancia La Leona, next to the river of the same name. There, you can use the restroom facilities and enjoy homemade cakes and hot beverages (not included). We will then continue our journey to El Chaltén, skirting the Viedma Lake with its homonymous glacier. Weather permitting, you will have breathtaking views of Mount Chaltén (also known as Fitz Roy) and Mount Torre, as well as the Viedma Glacier and its stunning icebergs. Upon arrival in Chaltén, you will have 5 hours to explore and enjoy this small mountain village (please consider the details if you choose the option with packed lunch or lunch). Available year-round and ideal for those who prefer a less demanding hike. Visit the Mirador de los Cóndores, approximately 700 meters away with low difficulty, and the Chorrillo del Salto, a completely flat 300-meter walk. You will be accompanied by a guide. To return, we will gather at a predetermined meeting point and start our journey back to El Calafate, arriving approximately at 8:00 PM.
