Chaltén full day: Ice Trekk

Chaltén full day: Opción Ice Trek

Excellent alternative for those who enjoy trekking on the ice in a very little explored area where few vestiges of tourism can be seen because it takes place outside the traditional tourist circuit.

Alrededor de las 7 de la mañana se comienza con el recorrido por los hoteles para salir en dirección a la zona norte del Parque Nacional Los Glaciares (aún sin explorar) y El Chaltén “Capital Nacional de Trekking”.

In our journey we will make several stops: at the head of Lake Argentino, where you can observe the largest lake in our country and the mountains of The Andes, you will cross the most important river of our province (Santa Cruz) and will arrive at the historic inn called La Leona: famous place where you can observe a small museum and have a snack with homemade cakes. Continuing, we will stop at the head of Lake Viedma to observe some typical estancias and the imposing Fitz Roy located about 90 Km. Entrance to El Chalten on Route N° 23; our next stop will be in Bay Tunnel, where we will embark modern boats to get to the front of the Viedma glacier.

We will sail near the front of the glacier and desembark near the ice giant wall to start with the trek. This walk on the glacier has a duration of 3 hours. It is an expedition that takes place on the Viedma glacier with iron crampons for security.

Después de haber disfrutado de este imponente glaciar se regresa a Bahía Túnel y se emprende el recorrido de regreso a la ciudad de El Calafate para llegar a las 20:00 aproximadamente. Es una excursión de exigencia alta por la cantidad de horas sobre el hielo.
