El Calafate Balcony 4 x4

Balcón de Calafate 4 x4

Excellent half day tour option if you want to practise a morning or afternoon activity.

You depart from your hotel in El Calafate to complete a journey of about 35 kilometers above the line of hills located behind the village. The trail immerses us into steppe landscapes where we reach heights up to 1050 meters above sea level and we marvel at the variety of vegetation at this height.

Our first stop is at a natural viewpoint where passengers enjoy a panoramic view of El Calafate and the main body of Lake Argentino. The tour will offer views of the Andes and the accumulation zone of glaciers, the Boca del Diablo (narrowest part of the lake, towards the Upsala arm) and, if cleared, you will see the Fitz Roy and Torre in Chalten and you will contemplate the flight of the condors.

Continuing the ascent, we reach the Stone Labyrinth, which is a formation of the Cretaceous period, dating back 85 million years old, ever riverbed where even today we can find fossils that refer to the past. From there we will descend the northern face of the hill and arrive at the Hats Rock, curious iron concretions found only in four places around the world.

We return to El Calafate without losing sight of the imposing Lake Argentino.
