El Calafate

Side Trips from Buenos Aires
Duration: 3 days - 2 nights
  DAY 1

Reception at El Calafate airport and private transfer to the hotel Casa Los Sauces.

Enjoy a ride through the steppe in an off-road circuit to some imposing and exclusive landscapes where no other motor vehicle has driven before in a four-wheel-driven pick up fully equipped for this kind of terrain. You will have time to take pictures and contemplate the fabulous scenery.

You will return to El Calafate by descending and having a look at the overwhelming Argentino Lake.

  DAY 2

Full Day visit to Estancia Nibepo Aike

Participate in the daily chores of the estancia – from sheep-shearing, rodeos, sheep and cattle-branding, milking; contemplating nature to horse-back riding or fishing - the estancia is ideally situated for anglers, on the banks of Lago Rico (southern arm of Lago Argentino), and has fishing tackle so that even novices can have a try..

For wildlife-lovers, the natural scenery makes it possible to spot various species of local fauna: condors, eagles, flamingos, kaikén, black-necked swans; and flora: deciduous forests of the native southern-beech varieties - lenga and ñire; notros and calafate.

  DAY 3

In the morning, transfer to Los Glaciares National Park.

You will have a private English speaking guide who will be with you all day to explain the importance of the Glacier and the nature surrounding this fabulous National Park.

After walking along the catwalks and exploring the National Park, you will navigate along the Argentino Lake to have a better and closer view of the Perito Moreno Glacier.

Optional Tour:
Mini-trekking: Go ashore to an uninhabited beach for an unparalleled Patagonia trekking experience: hiking on the huge turquoise glacier and observing the wide variety of birds including the Andean condor. The experience takes 2 hours.
