Description

Head to La Leona and explore the spectacular sights of a petrified forest, Argentino Lake, and the Santa Cruz and La Leona rivers. Panoramic view of the majestic Andes Mountains form your backdrop throughout this awe-inspiring journey.

After convenient pickup from your hotel, travel northeast along Route 40, enjoying views of the sparkling Argentino Lake and Santa Cruz River along the way. Make a brief stop at the Hotel La Leona, a local historical site, then continue along the south bank of Viedma Lake to reach the slopes of Los Hornos Hill.

Begin a scenic, exploratory walk among petrified logs and fossils, taking a fascinating look into the past with each step. Walk past fossilized logs as wide as 4 feet (1.2 m), gazing at their many rings and getting a sense of how different climate was during the forest's lifetime. Stop for lunch and take in the views before making the trip back to your hotel.
