The excursion begins at 8.00am from El Calafate. We take the mythic Route 40 that goes along the Argentino Lake up to La Leona River. We will pass by the canyon with the same name “Cañadón La Leona” and after 1.15 hours ride we will arrive to the ancient route hotel "La Leona", almost a museum of the Route 40, where you can have coffee and cakes. Our trip continues along the Lake Viedma, from where we will have magical views of glaciers, hidden lakes and the overpowering presence of the Mount Fitz Roy.
