DescriptionFrom El Calafate we will ascend in 4X4 the Huyliche cord to 1100 meters above sea level, a panoramic point of the Andes Mountains, the Patagonian steppe and the Argentinian Lake, surrounded by fantastic rock formations from where you can appreciate the geological evolution of the area. If it is clear, we will be able to appreciate the Cordillera de los Andes until the Fitz Roy Hill, all the arms of the Argentino Lake, this position is ideal to understand the phenomenon of the endorsement and rupture of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Maybe we can also contemplate the flight of the Condors. At the top we will make our photo stop, we will make a descent of the vehicles to make a small walk to the edge of the Balconies. There they will receive an interpretive talk from our guide with the support of our company's posters. Once at the top, we will divide the group into 3 smaller groups, based on the chosen descent option. All the options will arrive together to the stay, therefore in the same reservation there may be passengers who make different descents, will meet again at the base to have lunch or take the tea. The total duration of the excursion is 3.5 hours and you have a search for all the hotels in Calafate.
