What to Expect

In the morning we take our bus to El Chalten (Pick you at your hotel at El Calafate) Once we arrive the excursion starts at 11:00 in Receptivo Chalten 's office, where you meet the guide who goes with you during the whole tour.
From there the bus transfer takes you to El Pilar Hostel, approximately 12 km through the 23th route in the direction to Lago Del Desierto. Once you get there, at about 12 am, you start the 16 km trek bordering the Río Blanco. Approximately an hour later, and after going through beautiful lengas and ñire forests you reach the Piedras Blancas glacier overlook where you have an incredible frontal view of the glacier.
After continuing for 30 minutes, you reach one of the best views of the extraordinary Fitz Roy Mountain that this beautiful tour offers you. Approximately, at 14:00 you reach the Poincenot campsite where you have a hot and comforting lunch* so then you can start descending at 15:00. During this stretch, you visit the Laguna Capri and the Madsen house overlook to be back at El Chaltén at about 17:00. Then we tak our bus back to El Calafate.
