Cerro Frías Trekking
In the vicinity of the tourist city of El Calafate, heading to Perito Moreno glacier, is the Cerro Frias in the middle of the steppe, which is not part of any mountain cord, thus it allows you to appreciate spectacular views of the Torres del Paine, Cerro Fitz Roy, Crystals Cord, Brazo Rico, the North Branch and main body of Lake Argentino, the Boca del Diablo, the Magallanes Peninsula and Avellaneda Peninsula.
The tour includes transportation from your hotel in El Calafate to the starting place. You start in front of the Inn Eolo, located 25 km from El Calafate, and will hike through the valley of the Centinela River. The tour begins in the valley of the hill where you can see sunsets with a variety of colors and flora and fauna. Within 30 minutes of starting, we already have significant views of the Centinela Valley, Lake Argentino and Torres del Paine. The tour continues and, if you are lucky, you will see cows, guanacos, hares and wild horses.
Once completed, we start the journey back to the city of El Calafate.
Anyone without experience can make this tour and it is a very quiet activity.
