Full description
Spend 2 full days exploring the nature and scenic views of Patagonia with a professional guide. Day 1: On your first day, a minivan will pick you up at your hotel in El Calafate and you’ll head to Glaciers National Park. To get there, you will traverse 50 miles of paved road on a path between brown mountains and a blue lake. On the way, a specialized local guide will tell you about the park, which hosts the second largest icefield in the world after Antarctica. At the hop-off point, your guide will explain how to navigate the 2 mile-long boardwalks that showcase the front wall of Perito Moreno Glacier. These are low difficulty paths connected by stairways. You can read the informative signs in key viewpoints, and if you're lucky, you may even see a gigantic piece of ice breaking and falling into the lake. Join your guide again at the chosen time to take your hour-long boat trip across the whole frontal face of this 260 foot-high ice wall. There is a little bar inside the boat where you can buy hot beverages to fight the cold Patagonian wind. Return to Calafate in the early evening. Day 2: On your second day, you will be picked up at your hotel again and head to the vast Patagonian Desert which, although often mistaken as desolate, is full of unique wildlife. Come explore 25 miles of a natural reserve at a traditional Patagonian Ranch in a small group using a 4x4 off-road vehicle. Make different stops to discover guanaco herds and the trail of the Patagonian grey fox.   Use professional gear like binoculars, telescopes, and a bird guide to identify native species. Keep exploring on the 4x4 off-road truck and discover the delicate steppe ecosystem, where 80,000 years of Earth’s history can be traced by different fossils and the remains of different mammals which walked the Earth over 15 million years ago. Learn about the pioneers’ history and taste exquisite Patagonian lamb at a house tucked deep within the Patagonian countryside before heading back into town.
