About
Discover the beauty hidden in the world of glaciers. In this tour you will tour the southernmost landscape of Los Glaciares National Park. The Adventure Trekking Tour includes a tour through the route of the Estancias (ranchs) until the border with Chile where we will be able to see glaciers traces of more than 20,000 years, navigating in the South Arm of Lake Argentino and a hike to Lake Frias where we will sail in a small boat to the amphitheater of glaciers and enjoy a lunch with a privileged view of the national park.

What to expect
  • Wrapped up warm, depart from your El Calafate hotel in the morning in a heated vehicle. Following a scenic drive past numerous Patagonian ranches, arrive at Lake Roca and board a boat for a scenic cruise. Admire a unique combination of landscapes before your trek begins through the unspoiled virgin forests surrounding Lake Frias. On arrival at the lake, board a motorized boat and start the second part of your advanced hike after disembarkation. In the Glacier National Park, sparkling shards of ice are juxtaposed with the vivid blue of the sky. Drink in the frozen tableau and ever-changing glacial landscape and gaze at the peaks of the Cubo, Grande, and Dickson glaciers. Stop to revitalize with lunch at a scenic viewpoint before returning to the vehicle to warm up with mate tea, a Patagonian staple. Your tour ends with drop-off at your El Calafate hotel.
