Details of Day Tours

If you selected the activity WITH TRANSFERS, we will pick you up at your hotel in El Chalten, at 08 am, to travel to los Huemules Ranch, which visitors centreis the starting point of this excursion.

At 09 am we will start the trekking, following upstream the Diablo River, on a 2 hour long hike through a lush forest of lengas, going by a well maintained trail, which will give us access to the Diablo Lagoon (770 masl), from where you can see the Cagliero Refuge, and from where the second stage of our excursion begins, outside the Estancia Los Huemules.

At 11 o'clock approximately, the second part of this excursion begins, which consists of skirting the northern margin of the Devil's Lagoon by an easy but irregular terrain until reaching the beginning of a via ferrata (rock climbing sector). Before the beginning of this section, the guides will provide the necessary equipment to the participants and instruct them in it's correct use. The total extention of this section is 1 km long, with 200 meters of unevenness.

Approximately, it will take us one hour to reach the viewpoint of the glacier. From there, we can observe the unexplored Cagliero Sur Glacier (950 masl). From the viewpoint, a short walk takes us to the front of the Glacier where the guides will distribute the crampons, to begin the third part of our program: the trekking and hiking on the glacier. The average time spent on top of the glacier will be of about 2 hours, depending on the weather conditions and the physical level of the group.
