Take the Lago del Desierto boat ride. The views of the Fritz Roy from here are excellent. The lake is blue (I am not kidding). I ventured a little bit and hiked to the Huemul and Vespignani glaciers. I recommend for you to travel in...More

is a bit far from Chalten but it worth the visit, forest there is beautiful, there are plenty of space to chill out by the shore of the lake or do some hikes around.

After our exhausting hike to Laguno de los Tres the previous day, we opted for a tour which required virtually no walking, and Lago del Desierto fitted the bill perfectly. We were picked up at mid-day and driven along a gravel road for 1.5hrs, much...More

We enjoyed the tour the day after visiting Fitz Roy. It was spectacular, I highly recommend doing the full hike to Glaciar Vespignani and Glaciar Huemul they both take around 1-1.5 hours round trip + the time you spend there. Truly a memorable experience as...More

35 km from El Chalten. The gravel road leading to it is already so mesmorising with views of the Fitz Roy glacier and along several wooden bridges. Great stop at Salto del Anillo, a beautiful high waterfall inbedded in the bush. But the emerald waters...More

I wasn’t able to find Exploradores del Lago Desierto here on TA, so I’ll leave the review for the tour and lake here. An overall great tour up and down the lake and then a hike up to a glacier. The views of the lake...More

We had this excursion, with a localoperator. It takes more than 60m by bus from El Chalten to the navigation deck. The boat moves on the Lago del Desierto, providing views of two glaciers, Huemul and other. And a stop allowing a 1-2 hrs trek...More
