EXPERIENCES


GLACIAR CAGLIERO TREKKING

One hour will take us approximately to arrive at the GLACIER VIEWPOINT, from there and towards the north we will be able to observe the unexplored South Cagliero Glacier (950 m.a.s.l.), which for years remained alive thanks to its orientation and the accumulation of snow from Neumayer, Cagliero and Loma del Diablo hills. To the south we find the vertical walls of Cerro Treinta Aniversario and its needles, highlighting the Devil's Tooth. From the viewpoint, a short walk takes us to the front of the Glacier where the guides will distribute and regulate the crampons with the boots of the hikers, to begin the third part of our program that is the walk and trekking by the glacier proper; and if the climate is mild, you will have lunch on the Glacier. The average stay over it will be approximately 2 hours, depending on the climatic conditions and the physical level of the group. The return will be made by the same way one way with arrival back to the Information Center approximately 3 hours later. The meeting time with the El Chaltén transfer will be at 5:30 PM.

EMBLEMATIC MALBEC

Magic in the land of Malbec; let's experience floral aromas, violets, red fruit, and fresh spices. Guided by expert guides, we will visit the wineries where the best Argentine wines are born: • Bodega Casarena: located in the heart of Perdriel, just 20 minutes from the City of Mendoza, in the building of a century-old winery, built in 1937, which was completely renovated. Within Luján de Cuyo, it has properties in different geographical situations, both in altitude, orientation, and soil composition. Each soil in the vineyards was deeply explored to showcase all possible expressions of the same varietal. • Bodega Boutique Achával Ferrer: located on the south bank of the Mendoza River. Hand in hand with its winemaker, they have created high-quality wines in limited batches. We will visit the winery, getting to know its philosophy and tasting the wines straight from the barrels. • Bodega Finca Decero: the pairing between Malbec and Argentine cuisine comes true here; this winery is the result of the extraordinary vision of its owner, the Swiss entrepreneur Mr. Thomas Schmidheiny, who discovered in this region of Agrelo the unparalleled potential to create a unique and sophisticated winery surrounded by its own vineyards, which he baptized with the name 'Remolinos'.

ESTANCIA CRISTINA CLASSIC

Having set sail from Punta Bandera harbor at 9AM, we will glide over the waters of Lake Argentino’s Northern Arm to reach the furthest possible point of navigation in the Upsala Channel, where we can enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the Upsala Glacier’s immense front. Then, having disembarked at the shores close to Estancia Cristina, an expert guide will welcome visitors and take them on an exciting trek through the surrounding valley. The hike unfolds along an ecotone area, a beautiful, semi-arid place carpeted in native shrubs and grasses. Next, the walk gradually ascends to an elevated lookout point that bestows sweeping views of the valley beyond, over Lake Argentino and Lake Pearson across to the towering Andes Mountains. From here, continue on a path sloping gently uphill, surrounded by ñire trees, until you reach the highlight of this trek: Los Perros River Waterfall, whose viewpoints not only bestow jaw-dropping vistas, but are also a fantastic spot for observing flowers and plant life especially orchids. Later on, having returned from the trek, we will visit the Costumbrista Museum, housed in the estancia’s old shearing shed where guests can learn all about the history of the Masters family: their lives, adventures and how they became pioneers in Patagonia. Finally, a guided tour will take lucky visitors around Estancia Cristina’s estate–up to the Caterina River, the waterwheel, chapel and rest of the lodge.
