  • In the province of Santa Cruz, 3 km from the border with Chile, following a (medium bravo) gravel road you reach the cone of an extinct volcano, it houses a surprisingly Blue Lagoon, with varied birds. In the surroundings you can see ancient lava flows, very porous, light and dark stones that stand out in the colours of the steppe. A stop which will take you only a moment in the journey and vale la pena

  • The place is spectacular, a huge crater with a beautiful Lake inside. The landscape seems Rocky lunar and rugged. The wind punishes a lot and if you go in winter the cold will make the situation very difficult. The place is away from the center of Río Gallegos, is on the road towards Tierra del Fuego. If you're that way, meet!

  • To turn from Route 3 and stay with your mouth open: actually very blue, and in the middle of a lava field. Wonderful!
