Our day starts at 7:30 am as we depart from El Calafate and head along the famous Route 40. This iconic highway goes along the Argentino Lake up to the La Leona River. Passing the "CaƱadon La Leona" we will arrive to the ancient route hotel "La Leona". It is here that we will have a break to coffee and cakes.

Once the break is over we will continue along the Lake Viedma, from here we can take in the magical views of glaciers, hidden lakes and the glory that is Mount Fitz Roy. After several photos stops we will then arrive to Andean village El Chalten, also known as the "The Capital of the Trekking". As soon as we arrive we will briefly visit the Interpretation Center and then the group will be divided according their chosen option at our base - The Pudu Lodge.

We will provide you with ground transportation to the Port of Bahia Tunnel. Here we will sail along the Viedma lake to the beautiful Viedma Glacier, which is the largest glacier in the National Park! Once we arrive at the glacier we will begin the trek, spending about 2.5 hours exploring the ice, its crevasses and caves.

This is recommended for travelers in a good physical condition. The excursion includes crampons, on-board snack, and lunch.
