Details about this tour

The activity starts at 9:00 a.m. In the Visitor Center of Ea. Los Huemules.

We will hike for 2 hours approximately through a lenga forest on a well maintained trail, reaching to Laguna Diablo ( 770mts. above sea level

The second part of the activity takes place outside Ea. Los Huemules, on a private property: Campo Gorra Blanca.

This part consists of skirting the northern margin of Laguna Diablo though an irregular terrain until reaching the beginning of a VIA FERRATA (rock climbing sectors of little difficulty that have previously been prepared with Steel wires and artificial steps, so that the passengers can move autonomously and self-secured with specially designed harnesses and belts).

Before the beginning of this section, guides will provide the tourists the necessary equipment. Briefing on how to use the materials and make their safety way through the VIA FERRATA.

As they get on, the crossing becomes more and more fun, turning this part of the activity into a tour itself. The overwhelming views of the Laguna Diablo and its homonymous valley get more stunning, step by step. Its a 1km course, time will depend on the group conditions.

After an hour walk we reach to Mirador del Glaciar ( Glacier Viewpoint ). Facing north we can appreciate the unexplored Glacier Cagliero Sur (950 msm), that for years was kept nonmelted thanks to its orientation and the accumulation of snow coming from Neumayer, Cagliero and Loma del Diablo mountain. Facing south we will see the vertical walls of Cerro Treinta Aniversario.

ICE:(2hours on the glacier + 3 hours way back)

From the viewpoint, a short walk takes us to the front of the Glacier front where the guides provide and fix the crampons to each tourist. The average stay on the glacier will be 2 hours aprox, depending on the climate conditions and the physical level of the group. If the weather is good, lunch will be taken on the Glacier.

The return will be the same way, arriving to el Chalten at 06:30pm.
