The excursion allows visitors to enjoy imposing natural viewpoints with magniﬁcent panoramic view of El Calafate and Lago Argentino. The excursion departs from the hotels in El Calafate and completes a 35 kilometer tour over the line of hills behind the village. The footprint penetrates us through a typical landscapes of Patagonia Argentina. It reaches an elevation of 1050 meters above sea level. There, the ﬁrst stop is a natural viewpoint where passengers enjoy a panoramic view of El Calafate, the central body of Lago Argentino and, if the weather permits us, we can see the accumulation area of glaciers, the Fitz Roy and Torre in El Chalten. After that, our track follows the path to the Stones Labyrinth. It is a Cretaceous formation dating 85 million years old, which used to be a riverbed. We take a snack in the Huyliche tea-house and from there we will descend the northern slope of the hill to the Stone Mexican hats, curious iron concretions that are only found in four locations around the world. After this trip to other eras of world history, we return to El Calafate with the view of the Lago Argentino. Duration 3 hours.
