What will you do?

We will begin our activity with the pick-up from the hotels starting at 07:00 AM. Then we will take the mythical Route 40 bordering the Argentino Lake and we will start a trip to the town of El Chaltén, 220 km from El Calafate. On our way, we will cross the Santa Cruz River, and we will stop for a few minutes at Estancia La Leona, next to the river with the same name. There there will be a bathing stop and you will be able to enjoy homemade cakes and something hot to drink (not included). Then we will continue on our way to El Chaltén. Once in El Chaltén, we will leave you at the beginning of the path to Cerro Torre, and there the trekking will begin. The path has constant slopes but without much complexity ... 18 km roundtrip awaits you, full of incomparable landscapes.
On the trek you will be inside part of the Andean forest. If you are lucky, you may be amazed by some of the local fauna. Surprise yourself with all the landscapes that you will cross on your way ... a dream place like few others.
Near the final stretch, the path turns to small stones and can get confusing if you don't pay attention. Stick to the route marked on the map and stay on the trail.
When you arrive at Lake Torre, you will have enough time to lunch. Lunch is not included and there is no option to purchase it during the activity, so we suggest that the day before you have already organized what will be food and snacks. The place is a mountain site and there is no possibility of purchasing anything during the tour.
After enjoying the impressive views of Cerro Torre, the lake and the glacier that lies at its feet, and filling yourself with the peace of the place, you will retrace your steps to return to the town of El Chaltén. In town, we will be waiting for you at a meeting point set in advance for the return to El Calafate.
