My husband and I had a day to kill in El Calafate so decided to do a 4-hour 4x4 tour of Cerro Frias. The tour exceeded our expectations- it was excellent. Beautiful estancia in a stunning mountain and valley setting- we had great weather (if not a little breezy at the top- bring a wind proof coat!) with amazing views from both of the two viewing points on the 4x4 route. Saw eagles, condors, guanacos, foxes- we were lucky enough to see a mother guanaco chase off a fox, which our driver Sylvestre (who was very informative, friendly and spoke 5 languages) said he had only seen once before in his 10 years on the tour. The 4x4 ride itself was great fun- the cars are basic and hardy but do what they need to. We opted for lunch at the estancia house at the end of the tour. Although it wasn't cheap, the 3 course meal was absolutely delicious- pumpkin soup, barbecue meats and veg, and rice pudding. With a bottle of Malbec and stunning views across the valley, it was the best setting for a meal that I've ever had! Highly recommended
