    Stop At: ESTANCIA CRISTINA, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina

    Having disembarked at the shores close to Estancia Cristina, an expert guide will welcome you and take you on an exciting trek through the surrounding valley. The hike unfolds along an ecotone area, a beautiful, semi-arid place carpeted in native shrubs and grasses. Next, the walk gradually ascends to an elevated lookout point that bestows sweeping views of the valley beyond, over Lake Argentino and Lake Pearson across to the towering Andes Mountains.

    From here, continue on a path sloping gently uphill, surrounded nature, until you reach the highlight of this trek: Los Perros River Waterfall, also a fantastic spot for observing flowers and plant life especially orchids.

    Later on, having returned from the trek, enjoy some free time to have lunch and visit the place.
    In the afternoon, visit the Folkloric Museum with your guide, located in what used to be an old shearing shed, where they will introduce the history of the Estancia. Start a small and pleasant walk of about 30 minutes to visit the Caterina River and Chapel and then tour the historic town of Estancia.

    Around 5.30pm, get back to the boat to begin the return to Punta Bandera port, then back to El Calafate. Drop-off at hotels will be at approximately 8pm.
