Provincia de Santa Cruz Things to Do

  • La Cuarenta (Ruta 40)

    I undetook this trip in February 2011. I reserved to do the two day trip up the Ruta 40 from El Calafate to Bariloche before setting off for Argentina and paid for it at the Chalten Travel Turismo office in Buenos Aires when I arrived. This is one of the main reasons why I wanted to return to this part of Argentina and I was aware of the mixed...

  • Bajo Carcoles

    A small settlement in the middle of nowhere where only basic services are offered and the last place to fill up with their expensive petrol before reaching Perito Moreno or Tres Lagos on the Ruta 40. This is probably one of the most unattractive places I visited on my Argentina trip!

  • El Chalten & Environs

    In El Chalten, there is a number of hiking trails for travellers of all abilities ranging from a hour to several days!There is an easy walk to Chorillo del Salto, a waterfall, that passes the Rio de las Vueltas and takes under another hour to reach the falls. You can do another walk taking in Las Aguilas and Los Condores Viewpoints and this takes...

  • Laguna Nimez

    Just west of El Calafate is the shallow Bahía Redonda, itself part of the vast Lago Argentino. On the edge of Bahía Redonda is the Laguna Nimez a bird reserve with an entrance fee of less than $1. Once you have gained entry you are free to wander around at will and observe the birds; birdwatchers will know that it is not a thing to be done in a...

  • Perito Moreno Glacier

    Unique among the glaciers of Parque Los Glaciares (and indeed almost the whole world) in that the Perito Moreno glacier is not retreating, this 5km wide, 60m high massive wall of ice bisects two of the arms of Lago Argentino, those of the Brazo Rico and Canal de los Témpanos. The most popular and exhilarating activity is that of 'mini-trekking',...

  • Glaciar Perito Moreno

    Glaciar Perito Moreno is one of the only "growing" glaciers today, coming down from Hielo Sur, Patagonia's southern ice cap.It's majestic peaks at it's front are an impressive view itself - but also standing there and just listening to the sound of the glacier is breathtaking. You always hear breaking, cracking - results of the glacier growing.If...

  • Magnificent Cerro Torre

    To stand on top of El Cerro Torre is surely a dream for the worlds best mountaineers. But also to see him from the basecamp is a magnificent experience.His granite needle protrudes out of the surrounding mountains - he almost has a soul with his eternal ice bonnet. A simple hike of 30 minutes from El Chaltén (it's base village) brings you to the...
