    NATURE AND WILDLIFE

PHOTOGRAPHY

17hrs on daylight in summer gives you ample chance to photograph
native fauna. The animals aren’t afraid of humans, so you can get close, and the magical light ealy or late gives beautiful colours.

LAMB

Patagonian Lamb is succulent and sought after. Typically a whole lamb is slow roasted over an open fire for several hours so that once it reaches your plate a knife is merely ornamental. Add a glass of local red and a feast is created.

Itinerary

Travel by local bus the 3hrs or so north to El Chalten. Transfer to your hotel, or if nearby you can simply walk. Meet your guide this afternoon and discuss your hiking options for tomorrow.

Your choice of walks today.

Travel by bus back to El Calafate. Alternatively stay a couple more days to keep hiking, trek on Viedma glacier, or stay at Aguas Arriba for a few days.
