    El Calafate
    Stop: 3 hours -
    The excursion begins with the pick up at the hotels and continues with the vehicle to the Huyliche Hill, going up 35 kilometres on the hill line behind the village. From there, the 4WD will take you up to 900 meters towards a millenary geography and the best corners of Huylliche Hill. From there, you will arrive to a spectacular viewpoint, where you’ll see El Calafate city and the main body of the Argentinean Lake, surrounded by the mystical Patagonian steppe.  You can find a great amount of fossils and if it is a clear day, you can observe the Fit Roy Mount; in addition you can see Andean condors very close to you. The perspective from there is unforgettable and you will see the Andes range, the entrance of the north branch of the Argentinean lake, discovering a glacier landscape. The 4WD continues up to 1060 meters, where is the labyrinth of Cretaceous rocks with small fossils embedded in its walls. Then we go to our refuge located in a strategic place sheltered from the wind, a typical mountain refuge where we offer a snack or lunch ( depending to the choisen option) You will arrive in El Calafate city after three hours of a great geological and adventure experience.

The overall ride and scenery made the excursion worthwhile. Very beautiful w/great views. The guide was very nice and professional, but we were disappointed that he did not speak any English. We had a very hard time communicating, and weren't able to understand any of the tour
