What will you do?

We will start 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 Loma del Pldamientos Tumbado and there the trekking will begin. The path is practically in a constant ascent, it is not too difficult but if it is tiring ... 20 km roundtrip awaits you ahead with impressive views and a wonderful experience.
During the tour of the trail, be alert to the signs, since the trail at the beginning is shared with another trekking. He did not stray from the path. for On the trek you will be inside part of the Andean forest. If you are lucky, you will get a glimpse of some of the local fauna. For this we recommend trying to keep as quiet as possible ...
Upon reaching the end of the road, weather permitting, you will be able to see the entire mountain range of Cerro Chaltén and Cerro Torre, along with an unparalleled view of the Río de las Vueltas. There, on the plain, you will have enough time to have lunch. Lunch is not included (unless you choose the option "with lunch") and there is no option to purchase it during the activity, so we suggest that the day before you already have the food and snacks organized. The place is a mountain site and there is no possibility of purchasing anything during the tour.
After hallucinating with the impressive panoramic views offered by the Loma del Pldamientos lying down, and filling yourself with the tranquility 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.
