CERRO FRIAS HORSERIDE

 

Cerro Frias has the distinction of not being part of any mountain range. From its natural viewpoints located at 400 and 800 m.a.s.l. are obtained spectacular Torres del Paine and Fitz Roy massifs and Crystal’s mountain range views. Brazo Rico, Magallanes Peninsula, North Arm, Boca del Diablo and Avellaneda Peninsula can also be seen. Located in Estancia Alice lands and 23km away from El Calafate, Cerro Frias is an opportunity to enjoy local flora and fauna and to get 360 degrees of unforgettable images… The activity begins with a shuttle bus from the hotels to the Cerro Frías, where participants are divided into groups according to the activity previously selected (this activity must be chosen at time of booking). Once arrived to Cerro Frias visitors can not change activity, except in cases of force majeure.

Activities:

Cerro Frías offers the possibility to do several activities that take place simultaneously in different circuits (4x4 – Zip Line - Horseback Ride or Trekking) This allows members of the same group to choose different activities, since all passengers gather at a meeting point before returning back Hotels.

Horseback Ride or Trekking: the tour begins through a meadow to climb the mountain slopes. 30 minutes later Centinela Valley and Torres del Paine views can be seen. The route continues to climb up to high fields where Ranch cattle may eventually be seen and wild animals such as guanacos, hares, foxes, armadillos and skunks. From this field, you have a breathtaking view of Argentino Lake, Torres del Paine, Brazo Rico and Anita valley, among others.
