AMÉRICA DEL SUR HOSTEL CALAFATE | TOURS
GLACIAR SUR AVENTURA
Full day tour 8am / 7pm
The closest to an expedition in El Calafate, the southernmost landscape of the Parque Nacional Los Glaciares.
We enter the world of glaciers through the 15th Road (the old Estates road) and from the Lago Roca side road. We will go through a valley that runs from El Calafate to the Chilean border, showing 20 thousand year old glacial sigs, and some moraines from the past decade. Within the area of the Estancia Nibepo Aike, we will embark on a speedboat to navigate through the Brazo Sur of the Lago Argentino, until we reach the point of disembarking. In that moment we will enter an unexplored land, where we will hike to the Lago Frías and cross this lake using semi rigid fast boats, and then, a hike to the Grande Glacier. We will walk through a valley of different landscapes until we reach the circle of Glaciers, where we will enjoy a lunch picnic while looking at the Grande, Cubo and Dickson glaciers.
The total trip includes 6hs walking and 14km of hike. On the way back, we will share some mate and take the 15th road again, and arrive to El Calafate with the sunset.
Includes: lunchbox, guide, transfer to/from Hostel.
