El Calafate Balcony Experience

03 Hours


Enjoy the stunning scenery of Argentinean Patagonia from a whole new perspective that will allow you to contemplate it in all its immensity. The Calafate Balcony in 4WD tour takes you to a panoramic viewpoint in all-terrain vehicles to observe the entire area of El Calafate, the hills of Chalten and Perito Moreno Glacier from the same place. Besides, have the opportunity to see the flight of Condors.

    • Start from El Calafate's hotel and complete a journey of 35 kilometres on the line of hills behind the village.
    • Go through landscapes that marvel at its varied vegetation of height. It reaches up to 1050 meters above the sea. 
    • The first stop is a natural viewpoint where passengers enjoy El Calafate and the Argentino Lake's panoramic view. 
    • In the background, the unforgettable and imposing framework of the Andes Mountains, and time to time, during the route, clients will enjoy views of the accumulation zone of the glaciers, towards Boca del Diablo (the narrowest part of the lake, towards the Upsala arm). 
    • See the Fitz Roy and Torre hills in El Chaltén and, with some luck, the condor, master of the Patagonian skies, may be seen in his extended plan. A unique show. 
    • Have a snack in the restaurant Huyliche, and from there, start the descent down the hill's northern slope to Piedra de Los Sombreros (the Stone of Mexican Hats). 
    • After this trip to other eras of world history, return to El Calafate with the view permanently in the omnipresent Lake Argentino.
