  • Being in the Calafate, is an excursion very appropriate of all the day, if the day is good is can see the Fitz Roy, there is possibility of walks, good food in different places, in our case was in Rancho Grande, attended by its owner, very friendly

  • Nice way of arriving to the Chaltén. We were in micro and you bordeas the River as you approach and starting to see the hills.

  • You can have a lot of wind, enough to destabilize the vehicle. But the asphalt is maintained and the view is beautiful!
