Full description

Begin with a pickup from your hotel and a 37-mile drive to Los Pioneros boarding, in the southern area of Los Glaciares National Park. Sail for an hour before disembarking at the end of the Brazo Sur, where your first trekking of 1.24 miles will start.

Go to Lake Frías and navigate your way in Zodiac-type boats to the opposite side of the lake. Begin your second trek of 2.79 miles passing through a forest with centuries-old Lengas, and then through an old glacial valley.

Walk until you reach Lake Frías Superior, which is covered with icebergs. See the Dickson, Cubo, and Grande glaciers. Enjoy a box lunch with these amazing views before returning to El Calafate and back to your hotel accommodation.
