    Trek to the hidden glaciers in Patagonia

    870 USD

    Grandiose landscapes. Walk through the immensity of Patagonia, cross the recesses of the Estancia Nibepo, to the Hidden Glaciers in the valleys. Through these paths, you will witness the passage of time: dead trees, landscapes shaped by the advance of glaciers, erratic stones, milky lake and deep blue lakes. As you walk with the guide, you will learn even more about the history of these unique panoramas!

    Below the milky way, you will admire the Andean forest, the crystalline lakes, the high peaks and the imposing glaciers. A pleasant walk in the footsteps of the pioneers who settled long ago in these distant lands. Today, their descendants open their doors to welcome you and share their story.

    A 3-day walk through the southern arm of Lago Argentino, the slopes of Cordon de Cristales and Baguales, reaching Lago Frias to approach the glaciers of Dickson, Grande and Gorra. A combination of walks, hiking and boating to reach areas normally unsuitable.

      Day  1:    Puesto Cachorro and Laguna Tres de Abril

      In the morning, transfer from El Calafate (regular service – departure from El Calafate at 8:30) to Estancia Nibepo Aike. The guide will welcome you to the room and explain the program. After some mates (typical drink of the country), the walk towards Puesto del Cachorro begins. As you gain altitude, Rico and southern arm, as well as Roca and Frias Lakes begin to appear in the distance.

      After lunch, search for the most suitable crossing to go through the Cachorro river. The descent begins towards the fields downstream until reaching the bed of the river. At the edge of the lagoon, you will arrive at the end of the day at Puesto la Laguna where you will spend both nights.

      Day  2:    Balcony of the Glaciers / Erratic stone

      We leave after breakfast, hiking south to the Balcony of the Glaciers. The trail runs parallel to the southern arm of Lago Argentino (Argentino Lake). Shortly before arriving at the head of the lake, you will climb to an elevated point of view. From there you will have a panoramic view of the southern arm, Laguna Corazón and of the Lago Frias, with glimpses of the Hidden Glaciers Gorra, Frías, Grande and Dickson in the distance.

      Once on the south beach, crossed by a large pasture. An erratic stone of more than 20 meters will be the next destination. The colossal size of the rock shows the strength of the glaciers, which advance and retreat over the centuries. The footpath starts to run alongside the lower Frías River. Here we will find traces of the area’s livestock rearing past, a hanging bridge over 100 years old, destroyed by the great flooding of Lago Argentino in 1937. The way passes through dense woodland getting as far as discovering Corazón Lagoon, with crystal clear waters where the deep blue contrasts with the green reflection of the woods. The water is so crystal clear that it is possible to watch the trout swimming between the rocks.

      We pause for lunch. A place sheltered from the world. In the late afternoon, return to the Puesto Laguna 3 de Abril, where you would find a warm wood fire and enjoy meal.

      Day  3:    Hidden glaciers – navigation back to the estancia

      In the morning, hike about 1 km to reach a sandy beach to meet Glaciar Sur and start this expedition that is a combination of navigations and trekking to reach a unique spot between mountains and glaciers, where only few people arrive.

      Short navigation to the other shore and beginning of the walk. After a slight climb through the native forest, you will reach a natural view of Frías lake, named after the glacier, that once covered the whole area. Descent to the shore to embark in a zodiac and sail to the other shore where begins the second walk of about 7 km to Grande, Cubo, Dickson and Frías glaciers. Glaciers go down in the lagoon, giving way to a unique and grandiose landscape.

      It’s time to admire and photograph this natural amphitheatre. After having lunch surrounding by this spectacular and unexplored landscape, we navigate back tothe ranch just in time to enjoy rural life: sheep shearing demonstration, gauchos’ skills, then tasting a roast lamb. After dinner, transfer to El Calafate. (Regular service – departure from Nibepo Aike at 22:15)
