Tour Description

From El Calafate, in just a few minutes, we will begin the ascent to the Huyliche mountain range, the route begins by traveling along the slopes of the Cañadon del Arroyo Calafate, from where we will be able to see the native fauna: guanacos, foxes, hares, loicas, bandurrias, caranchos and falcons among other species. We will continue along the winding, ascending path surrounded by erratic blocks, witnesses of the power of glacial erosion until the First Balcony, scene of the Cenozoic Era, dated 65 million years ago, on the bed of an ancient sea that exposed in the form of fossils, sediment and pieces of fossilized vegetation. After getting off the vehicles for a few minutes, we will continue to the intermediate balcony where the guides will place the equipment (harnesses, helmets) and explain what the activity will be like, indicating the position they should adopt and braking mode. This is the starting point of the zip line circuit where the maximum adventure begins descending the hill along the 4 lines for a total of 2920 meters. Continuing the descent we will arrive at Estancia Huyliche, a historic livestock establishment in operation that dates back to the 1920s, the time of the historic events known as Rebel Patagonia. Then, in the oldest house of the Estancia we will serve lunch, snack or dinner according to the reserved time. ** The Cerro Huyliche 4x4 excursion has 3 options for the descent: 4x4, Zipline or Trekking. If you travel with family or friends and choose different options, you will share the ascent to the hill in a 4x4 and the time in the center of Estancia Huyliche. ** The tour lasts between 3.5 and 4 hours depending on the number of participants. In winter, when part of the 4x4 route becomes inaccessible due to the large amount of accumulated snow (or mud during the thaw), the ascent is made up to about 800 meters until reaching the "East" Balcony from which you can see the the magnificent panoramic views of El Calafate, Lake Argentino and the Andes Mountains. The zip line descent is done along the third and fourth lines, the most spectacular on the circuit!
