  • If one decides to walk or go by bike it has a long stretch to entertain bordering the Lake. At the end, as going to the P Moreno glacier there are several places to visit

  • Very nice to see the confluence and source of the Lake next to the Perito Moreno. The Lake is going to walk hundreds of kilometers to give rise to the Black River, right near the airport site of Calafate.
