A spectacular way to know the Patagonian steppes of the surroundings of El Calafate is riding by Cerro Frias.
We will pass by the most beautiful viewpoints of the region in a quiet and appreciated cavalcade, you can see guanacos, hares, condors and, with luck, foxes.
An unforgettable ride!
We leave the hotel in El Calafate following to the east side of the city, starting our route through Cerro Frias.
We will climb the Cerro in a 4x4 vehicle and we will see during the route the famous Lake Argentino, bigger and more austral Patagonian lake of a dazzling blue color.
We also see the Peninsula Avellaneda. Arriving at the summit, at 1,030m altitude we enjoy the wonderful view of FitzRoy, located in El Chalten, as well as Torres del Paine, located in Chile. A truly breathtaking sight!
With this wide view of the region that we have along the way, the guide takes the opportunity to give us an introduction about the local geography, being possible to visualize the limits of the National Park and to see historical points of the region.
We then stop at the famous Campo Restaurant where you have a beautiful view of the Centinela Valley, the waters of the Rich Arm and Torres del Paine (Chile). We began to prepare for our true adventure: the ride!
The stable is a few meters from the restaurant. We hunt our horses and start our circuit.
We rode for about 1.5h on the southern side of Cerro Frias reaching beautiful viewpoints at 600m altitude. We can see from many angles, most of the region's most famous spots. Really beautiful!
During the way, as we said, we can see wild animals and endemic to the region, such as guanacos, hares and condors. With luck, we get to see the foxes too.
We finished our circular circuit returning to the stable. We return to the Campo Restaurant for a delicious meal with entry right, dessert and main course a roast of beef and chicken completing the tour with Patagonian flavors.
