What To Expect
Leave downtown Calafate behind you and take the direction of El Calafate Mountain Park, a unique and exclusive proposal in El Calafate.
Take a scenic chairlift ride to the top of the Mountains also known as El Calafate Balcony. From there enjoy stunning panoramic views of El Calafate, the Argentine Lake, the Patagonian landscapes and glaciers. If the weather is nice you will be able to see impressive Mount Fitz Roy and Mount Torre in El Chalten. During winter season from June to September you will be surrounded by majestic snow capped mountains. El Calafate Balcony is also the preferred spot of many condors.
Then embark on a 4x4 off road truck and explore incredible rock formations sculpted by wind erosion. Discover sights of the wonderful Andres Mountain range and the area of accumulation of the glaciers towards Bocas del Diablo (Devils mouth), which is the narrowest part of the Argentine lake in the Upsala arm.
The guide will deliver instructive explanations about the history of the region and its geological aspects. You will also learn about endemic flora and fauna.
We will stop for hot chocolate and snacks before we go back to the bottom of the mountain and then to downtown Calafate.
