  • The entire route is asphalt and does not have too much traffic. Along the way there are several viewpoints: Argentino Lake, Viedma Lake, Mount Fitz Roy. When we went, we saw several guanacos.

  • We went and we returned to Las Lengas, that hasn't stopped on stay in ida, as they say to, only in the back. The road begins with incredible views of the snowy mountains even in cloudy day. We can see a glacier the road, giving a taste of the beauty that is going to have to look forward to. On the way back, we stopped at la leona.

  • The route from Calafate from El Chaltén is in perfect condition, fully paved and with a landscape very cute bordering Lakes Argentino and Viedma. A stop at the Parador La Leona can be halfway. Historical place, and also can eat or buy things very rich
