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.

  • You know that place that you find God manifest in nature? This location is the location of laguna Huemul in the base of the glacier. Walk the trail in the Woods and then find that vision is a must. Light snack of trail and windshields.

  • Easy hike with reward - the color of the water of the lagoon and the views of the Fitz Roy are impressive

  • B e a utifull place, is about 23km north from el chalten (which is the only downside) near "Lago del desierto". Is an hour hike that is not Hard and you will enjoy the hole ride. If you hire the tour guide, and you like relax with a great view, i would recommend to take more than the 2 hours tour.
  • beautiful place.. .te charge to enter... do a walk of little demand for 20 min and when you arrive you have a breathtaking view... If these Chalten you can't it lose

  • Unforgettable tour if you are in el chalten! You take a combi and leaves you on the portal. Excellent views. Short of small to medium difficulty path. Stunning views to the end. You can combine with Lake of the desert with navigation and half way a beautiful waterfall.
