See why Patagonia is a mystical land and nobody can argue that. Its landscape is much a homage to storytelling as it is to the place itself. The immense beauty of the region attracts dreamers, adventurers and explorers who delight in the tangled web of legends and myths.  According to legend, Patagonia used to be inhabited by giants. Truth is that it is home to the most amazing, wild and impressive landscapes one can imagine.

DAY 01

Reserva Laguna Nimez

  • Tag along with your Patagonia photography instructor/tour guide from the El Calafate Airport and drive to the hotel in the city.

  • Take rest or explore the city and visit Reserva Laguna Nimez for birds lovers.

  • Have dinner in a traditional restaurant in the evening. 

DAY 02

Laguna de Los Tres lake

  • Take the bus to El Chalten (no need to rent a car because you will be in the mountains for the next 5 days without road access).

  • Hike for 4 hours uphill flat to the first camping ground where you will stay 3 nights scouting for the best photography locations. You will wake up every day for sunrise, visit Laguna de Los Tres lake (its shores can offer us a memorable sunrise due to its looming “croissant-shaped” spires of the three granite peaks behind).

  • The trail is initially quite steep and passes through a forest containing yellow-flowered Calafate bushes, so you can literally taste the legend. 

DAY 03

Camp site

DAY 06

Nestle in the LAndscapes

  • Immerse in the surrounding landscapes. 

DAY 07

  • The magnitude and sublimity of the Perito Moreno Glacier will make you reflect on your path here and, how the planet needs to protect.

A note from your tour guide:

  • A vast area of nothing but untouched brute nature, turquoise glacial lakes and glaciers, granite spires, majestic mountains, rivers, waterfalls, lakes, imposing trees, crazy beautiful autumn colours, and a generous variety of wildlife is what this gem of a place is really home to. 

  • The Calafate berry is said to grant mystical powers for those who eat it, ensuring their return to this land of magic. How the guide sees Patagonia is as a place of self-discovery, a place that allows one to connect with nature in the purest, most honest way.
