BALCONIES OF CALAFATE
From the Balcony, an imposing natural viewpoint, you can enjoy a panoramic view of El Calafate and the central body of Lake Argentino. The tour will offer us views of the Andes Mountains and the glacier accumulation zone, towards the Boca del Diablo (narrowest part of the lake, towards the Upsala arm) and if it is clear we will be able to see the Fitz Roy and Torre hills in El Chaltén. In addition, we will have the opportunity to see the flight of Condors.
Balcones de El Calafate, with two daily departures, the excursion departs from the hotels in El Calafate and completes a 35-kilometer journey over the line of hills located behind the town. The footprint leads us through landscapes that amaze with their varied high-altitude vegetation. It reaches up to 1050 meters above the sea. There, the first stop is a natural viewpoint where passengers enjoy a panoramic view of El Calafate and the central body of Lake Argentino.
In the background, the inevitable and imposing frame of the Andes Mountains and, at times during the tour, there are views of the area of accumulation of glaciers, towards the Boca del Diablo (narrowest part of the lake, towards the Upsala arm). With the help of the weather, it is even possible to spot the Fitz Roy and Torre inEl Chaltén and, with some luck, perhaps the condor, master of the Patagonian skies, will let itself be seen in its long glide. A unique show. Follow the path to the Stone Maze, an attraction only accessible with Mil Outdoor.
It is a formation of the Cretaceous period dating back 85 million years. It was once the bed of a river: today we can find fossil remains that allow us to witness today that millenary past. We have a snack at the Huyliche confectionery and from there we begin the descent down the north slope of the hill to the Piedra de los Sombreros, curious iron concretions that can only be found in four places in the world. After this trip to other eras of world history, we return to El Calafate with our eyes always on the omnipresent Lake Argentino.
