Trek along the scenic route to Glaciar Huemul to see a small but impressive glacier, and by far the most accessible one in the region. The area is ideal for photography, with great variation in the color and form of the landscape. The glacier is accessible by one of the most attractive trails in the region, leading through the ever-changing scenery of rugged Patagonia. Dress warmly, bring snacks and drinks, and wear shoes suitable for uneven and slippery terrain.

  • The climb is short but intense. When you get up to enjoy a true paradise! It is beautiful. The effort of the steep ascent is worthwhile. Well find agencies that allow you to make navigation on the desert lake and to coordinate with the walk to the huemul, since some are not as foreseen and still there is a waste not to make it.

  • We were heading to Laguna del Desierto and recommended us this trekking. Half effort and a spectacular view as reward (the average effort for me is high)
