Description

Discover some of south Patagonia's most spectacular sights by venturing to Lake Viedma and the Lake of the Desert area. See impressive glaciers, marvel at Mount Fitz Roy, and visit the El Chaltén village, named Argentina's Trekking Capital.

After you're picked up from your hotel, ride down the iconic Route 40, leaving El Calafate behind. Head along the shores of Argentino Lake toward the historic La Leona Roadhouse and Country Lodge. Make a brief stop to enjoy some freshly brewed coffee and cakes (at additional cost), and then continue to Lake Viedma for sweeping views of craggy, blue-white glaciers and the majestic Mount Fitz Roy.

Arrive at the small El Chaltén village and pay a visit to the Interpretation Center before heading on a self-guided hike of the Las Vueltas River area via 4x4 truck. Because this is a preferred route for condors, you might even spot some of these vultures flying above you.

Make your way to a small waterfall before taking in the Lake of the Desert's surroundings of lush forest, streams, and glaciers. If you want, trek up to the Huemul Lagoon and the nearby glacier, located on the slopes of Mount Vespignani.
