Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
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. A visit to Glaciar Huemul represents just the start of the adventure when you use our El Chalten trip builder to plot your vacation.

  • An amazing place. Combi, the area of desert Lake Road is reached. From there begins a rather complicated walk of approximately 1 hour and you reach a divine, amazing place. The glacier is very small, is located on the slope of the mountain which is a glacier of height. But the lagoon that is below and the landscape of the around it, is something that everyone should live, because it is very difficult to put into words so many sensations, beauty, peace and fresh air... For those who can do it, it is highly recommended to go and spend a full day.
