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 "Canadon La Leona" we will arrive to the ancient route hotel "La Leona". It is here that we will have a break for 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 Chaltan, 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.

With the full day tour to El Chalten with boat trip to Viedma Glacier, after visiting the interpretation center we will have free time to visit the village of El Chalten or to take an exclusive trek to the Estancia Madsen. With the first option you can choose to have lunch in one of the many restaurants of the iconic mountain village of El Chalten (not included). With the trek option we will hike to Estancia Madsen also know as the Estancia of Mount Fitz Roy, which has a museum that displays the Madsen family's belongings, the history of the place and of the first inhabitants of the area. The mirador of the Mount Fitz Roy provides a unique panoramic view with very easy access. We will also provide a box lunch. You can choose between these two options the day of the excursion.

After that we will go to the port of Tunnel Bay just a few minutes away from El Chalten, the starting point to navigate across Lake Viedma. From there we will do a 2 hours boat trip in front of the Viedma Glacier. We will take you down to the largest Glacier in the National Park, its 40-meter-highwalls and ice floes.
