Viento a Favor

Lago del desierto is one of the most and last virgin areas in the Patagonian Andes. Exploring the 36km between the lake and the town of El Chaltén, can be an unforgettable experience. We leave from town early in the morning, to the beautiful lake with its crystal-clear water. Once there you can do a boat trip or go trekking in the area to the wonderful Huemul Glacier and its turquoise colored lake. You have the whole day to make the bike ride, going back to town and following the rapids of ¨Rio de las Vueltas¨ with the wind in your back!!. Each curve is an excuse to stop and admire the beauty of the surroundings: waterfall, lakes, glaciers and the huge shape of Fitz Roy´s north Face, emerging from the nothofagus woods. Several trails invite you to leave your bike and make different hiking trips: Trail to Huemul Glaciar (Desierto Lake) 1:30hs roud trip. Trail to Lake Azul (Los Huemules Park) 2 hs. round trip. Trail to Lookout over Piedras Blancas Glascier 3 hs round trip.
