El Calafate 4×4 excursion-3 hours. An off-road experience to a handful of extreme sites on Mount Huyliche. The first is the Balcón del Calafate, a lookout point just 15 kilometers uphill from the city, but where you are guaranteed breathtaking views. Next stop is at 1050 meters, another spectacular observation point from where you can see condors in flight and the magnificence of the Argentine side of the Lake Argentino. You will then continue to the Las Piedras Labyrinth that formed millions of years ago and a fine spot to search for fossils; lastly, on your way down, there is a stop at the well-kept secret of the Piedra de los Sombreros [Stone of the Hats], an astounding natural sculpture that looks like perfectly shaped hats.

Perito Moreno Glacier Excursion-9 hours
80 kilometers from Calafate, the Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the largest in the world and the number one attraction in 600,000 ha, ice-covered Glacier National Park, rises grandly into the heavens. You will venture into this area of Patagonia-Andean forest, with the destination being the “Curva de los Suspiros” (literally, the curve of sighs), where you will catch your first glimpse of this massive body of ice. Afterwards, you will go to the passarelles (footbridges), walking along them to different locations with panoramic views of this wonder of nature and watching up close as different sized chunks of ice break off and fall, hearing the thunderous sound they make hitting the water, and then simply watching them turn into icebergs.

Next, disembark at Estancia Cristina, visiting the old shearing shed that is now a museum. Then comes an off-road trip, nearly 10 km on a mountainous road, crossing a beautiful area of surprising geological formations.
