    Beautiful natural place that surprises by its magnitude and mysticism, nestled in the Patagonian steppe. Multiple theories placed its origin

    Once crosses the Strait of Magellan coming from Ushuaia and 60 km before arriving in Rio Gallegos, they are just 4 km from detour with good gravel, until you reach the geological reserve Provincial Blue Lagoon. The view is fantastic. The lagoon is located in the ancient caldera of a volcano. Worth deviate slightly from the road and get to visit.

    Beautiful Virgin landscape, worthy to be visited with the family, surrounded by volcanoes. If heading is to Punta Arenas (Chile), it fits along the way, 55 km from Rio Gallegos-

    It is a beautiful place that nature offers you to discover the mouth of a dormant volcano. A few meters from national route 3 to bring beautiful images of the area...

    It is a very rare place and I like. The birds come to eat from your hand, you may spot ducks, swans, etc. Or explore the caves formed. There are many caulkers and fruits can be eaten in January or February. It is not recommended to make fire, because almost all the soil is organic matter and in some places until it is fluffy and appears to float. You must be careful when descending and the emerging demand much effort.
