El Calafate - Excursions
 
Tradicional excursion to Perito Moreno Glacier
After breakfast, we will start our guided tour along Route 11 towards Los Glaciares National Park. We will pass by the edge of the main body of Argentino Lake and move on towards the branch called Rico. We will stop at the entrance of the National Park in order to pay the admission fee and, once inside the park, we will go to “Curva de los Suspiros” (“Curve of Sighs”), where we will get off the vehicle in order to see the Perito Moreno Glacier for the first time. Further on, we will stop at the Muelle Bajo las Sombras (Pier Under the Shadows) so that those who are willing to go sailing can get closer to the southern wall of the Glacier (optional). Then we will move on to the front catwalks of the glacier, where we will watch it from different balconies and enjoy our free time by appreciating the various detachments. Return to El Calafate

Perito Moreno Glacier Minitrekking Tour
After breakfast, we will start our tour along Route 11 towards Los Glaciares National Park and pay the admission fee at the entrance. We will go on by bus towards Puerto Bajo de Las Sombras (Under the Shadows Port), where we will take a small ship to cross Rico Branch. On the opposite coast, we will meet the tour guides.

Excursion to Torres del Paine
We will depart from the Argentine town of El Calafate since 5.30 am, from the hotel where the passengers are staying, as long as it is located within a radius of 3 km from the centre. Note that this is the time when pick-ups from the centre start, so it is an estimated time. At about 10.00 am, we will arrive at Frontera (the Border) (Castillo Hill), and after completing customs formalities, we will stop at the Chilean region of Castillo Hill. There you may exchange money, have a traditional breakfast, chat with the locals, etc. Next, our passengers will get on smaller buses, in order to achieve group cohesion, and more interaction with the guide, the specialist who will be with the group during the whole tour. That way, the group will get the most of their experience on this very special tour. At about 11.00 am, we will continue our bus ride to the Park, and arrive at the first attraction of our tour, Sarmiento Lake, at 11.40 am. We will stop there briefly in order to take the first photographs and enjoy the breathtaking landscape. The next stop of this tour will be at Amarga Lagoon Porter’s Lodge, around 12.30 pm; there we will pay the admission fee for Torres del Paine National Park. Our bus will depart towards Nordenskjold Lake, where we will arrive at 1.00 pm. We will enjoy this beautiful water mirror, which reflects one of the main Park attractions: the magnificent “Paine Horns.” Around 1.30 pm, we will arrive at Pudeto, where we will trek towards Salto Grande waterfall, and then move on to Paine Horns Lookout Point. This whole tour lasts about 1 hour and a half. On the way, the guide will decide which lookout point the group will go to first. It is a low difficulty walk. After enjoying the tour, we will go to the National Park Administration (Administración del Parque Nacional, Conaf), where we will arrive at about 4.00 pm. From there, we will return to Amarga Lagoon (at 4.50/5.00 pm). At 6.00 pm, we will arrive at Castillo Hill and return to El Calafate at about 10.30/11.00 pm.
