On this 6-day adventure, you will tour Perito Moreno Glacier (the most famous in Patagonia) before continuing to the lovely mountain town of El Chaltén. Chaltén is a hiker’s paradise, home to the Fitz Roy Mountains and Cerro Torre. In this trip you will have plenty of time to hike the mountain trails at your own pace, sail the pristine Patagonian and, once back to town, sampling a delicious Patagonian “asado” (barbeque) and locally brewed beers.

We enjoyed the trip very much; wish we had more time

“Pudu Hotel in El Chalten was our most favorite hotel since the location was perfect, the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly and helpful. We loved the town of El Chalten. The other favorite was the Las Torres in Torres Del Paine. It is a beautiful lodge, though expensive. The least favorite Design Suites in El Calafate. It was quite far from the town. The food was of medium quality.

The most favorite activities were treks in El Chalten (Cerro Torre), Base of the Towers (Torres Del Paine) and Perito Morino (El Calafate). All because of their natural beauty and the fun of trekking. The only suggestion I have for Perito Morino is I would have preferred a trek upto the glacier rather than only the boat excursion.”
Beautiful, scenic and relaxing

“This was an amazing experience for us. Although El Chalten is very touristy (I don't think I met a local), it offers amazing hiking routes for all types of fitness levels. At the end of one route, we ended up at a lake which had a glacier in the background and massive icebergs at the "shore". It was absolutely amazing.

In El Calafate we ended up seeing the massive glacier, which was absolutely impressive! Just as a tip: If you'd like to do the walking routes, the boat ride isn't really necessary. It was included in our package, but if you're looking to save some time and money, you can easily exclude the boat ride without missing out on the majestic nature of this incredible iceberg.

We also visited an Estancia (a ranch), where we rode horses, saw a sheep being sheered and ate some amazing lamb. My favourite trip!

Highly recommended trip! Just bring a warm jacket ;)”
The trip was fabulous!

“Dear Marcela,

I decided to travel with you because of your promptness in response, ease of working, good customer service and a good price. Seamless experience - everything was flawless and we did not have to worry.

My favorite hotel is Don Los Cerros at El Chalten - very nice hotel, luxurious, superb location and views, spa - hot tub, good service.

The best excursion was to Laguna De los tres - amazing trek up - difficult but exhilarating - worth the effort once we reached the top.

The trip was fabulous!”
A wonderful holiday

“I heard about Say Hueque, from searching the internet for local travel agents in South America.
I like to use local businesses when i travel. That way i know i'm contributing to the economy and the locals like to present their country the best way possible.

My favourite destination was El Calafate. I loved the little town. My hotel was upgraded and the excursions to Perito Moreno and Torres Del Paine day trips were excellent.

My favourite hotel was Mirador Del Lago in El CalafatE. Very good service.The meals in the restaurants were delicious. The facilities and location was also very good and suited my needs

About the excrsion, it is hard to choose between Perito Moreno & Iguasu day trips. Both were excellent. But the organisation in El Calafate was probably the better out of the two.

Guides, They were all pretty good.

Thanks again to Say Hueque and especially to you & Lucia and all the other people who helped me have a wonderful holiday.”

Today, Southern Patagonia welcomes you with open arms. El Calafate is a jumping-off point for adventure travelers who chace to unearth the most spellbinding natural wonders of Patagonia, like the Perito Moreno Glacier.

The Perito Moreno Glacier is one of the only glaciers in the world that’s still advancing. Though it’s not the only glacier in the area is the one that made the city of El Calafate famous worldwide. For many years now, El Calafate has been considered capital of the glaciers. Located at the shore of Lago Argentino (the southernmost, largest Patagonian lake) it’s also home of the Spegazzini Glacier, which forms the natural border between Argentina and Chile, and the Upsala Glacier, named Glaciar del Gigante (Giant’s glacier) upon its discovery and the biggest glacier that sits at the mouth of Lake Argentino.

Is El Calafate all about the glaciers? Well, yes and no…glaciers are main attractions that you can visit via hiking or a boat ride. But you have lot more to discover about Argentine rural culture. From Calafate you can also visit a typical Patagonian finca (ranch) and learn all about the gaucho culture and enjoy a great asado (barbecue). You’ll soon realize that Calafate is much more than the gateway to the Perito Moreno glacier. Upon arrival you will be taken to the hotel and have the rest of the day to relax or explore the surroundings.
2 Star Hotel at Cauquenez de Nimez
In the morning, we’ll drive you to Glaciers National Park to take the 6 hour long Perito Moreno Glacier tour. Get prepared to play with the giants!

Glaciers National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1981 and home to 200 approximately glaciers. Half of this park is occupied by the campo de hielo patagónico (Patagonian ice field), the largest ice field after Antarctica. You will travel 40 km (about 25 miles) from El Calafate to the park, enjoying the views of the Patagonian steppe. Once inside the park you will take the walkways to explore the different viewpoints, and you’ll feel really close to the Perito Moreno Glacier. If you’re lucky, you may get to see a piece of ice break off and fall from the glacier wall to sink forever into the lake. During about one hour, a bilingual guide will provide you with all the information you might want to know…and things you might have never thought about.

After this visit you will take a boat ride that will take you close enough to fully appreciate the 80 meter (262 feet) high ice walls of Perito Moreno! You’ll never feel closer to this gigantic and impressive natural masterpiece.

During the morning a minivan will pick you up at your hotel to start your 3 hour long trip to El Chaltén. You’ll travel along the famous Route 40, surrounded by the Patagonian steppe, pass through La Leona River, which connects Lake Argentino and Lake Viedma and where stands La Leona Road house, where the famous thieves, Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid hided for a month. We’ll make a stop so you can enjoy the bar and see the historical center.

After discovering other rough gems of this particular landscape (we’ll make some photo stops if the weather is nice), you’ll reach El Chaltén and we’ll leave you at your hotel.

El Chaltén is the top rated hiking destination in Argentina. This charming little village sits at the foot of Fitz Roy Mountain and it’s surrounded by glaciers, lakes, rivers and forest. It’s also the jumping-off point for most hiking trails. A paradise for sunny walkers and hikers alike.

Enjoy your first afternoon of leisure in Patagonia to relax in the local brewery or explore the surrounding areas—Maybe stroll around a little waterfall…

Today be prepared for an exciting day into the wild. El Chaltén offers a wide range of options of hiking paths of varied difficulty. You can choose where and when to go, since paths are self-guided and very well marked and maintained. Laguna de los Tres and Cerro Torre are the most popular ones. But,, if you want to do something different, you can take a full day trip to Lago del Desierto (not included).

We’ll take you in a bus through the valley and along the Las Vueltas River till reaching the Natural Reserve Lago del Desierto, and then we’ll sail for 50 minutes in a comfortable catamaran crossing the lake from south to north.

What will you see on the way? The Crestón Glacier and the Huemul Glacier lying shyly over the mountains. After a short 15-minute stop, we’ll continue sailing to Vespignani Glacier where we’ll go ashore to take one of the hiking trails nearby.

You can choose between an easy, interpretative trail through the forest, or a 45 minutes hike to get to the Vespignani Glacier’s base and a jaw-dropping view of Mount Fitz Roy. It’s up to you, you will count with the assistance of the tour coordinator at any time. After the hike, we’ll take a snack in our geodesic tent just before sailing back to Punta Sur and take our bus back to El Chaltén.

If you would to add this tour for your free day, just let your travel agent know.

Once you arrive at El Calafate, the minivan will leave you at your hotel. It’s your last evening in town, your last chance to try the tender and exquisite Patagonian Lamb or a heavenly tasting Calafate ice-cream. At Calafate, food options are varied: from veggie delicacies to the best demonstration of international cuisine.
