Chelenko Sur

Overland
Easy
Full-day

We leave the lodge and head northward, crossing areas with a strong tradition in livestock husbandry. We also flank the famous Baker River, know for its turquoise waters and heavy flows. We will hike to the Baker-Neff confluence, the point where the two rivers meet. The Neff is a river that comes from a glacier tongue that comes down from the northern ice fields. Its gray tones are due to the concentration of sediment that this glacier carries. After this visit we walk to the San Martin Fossils sector. Attended by the owner, we will take a small tour to observe and analyze samples of fossilized rocks with different species of molluscs that inhabited the territory more than 175 million years ago.

Viaje Glaciar

Hielos Andinos Patagónicos
Overland
Easy
Half-day

We depart from Explora on the Patagonia National Park and travel along the Carretera Austral until taking back roads amid forests, rivers and lagoons until reaching the Calluqueo Glacier. This impressive tongue of ice hangs from the western slope of the solemn Mount San Lorenzo. It then flows into a murky glacial lagoon surrounded by walls of ice thousands of years old that impose themselves on the geography of the place. It is a natural environment that was formed over the course of centuries and millennia, where the scale of time is blurred. The wind causes the clouds surrounding Mount San Lorenzo to put on a shifting and dynamic show. We will be able to sit down and contemplate, walk around, or go down to get our wet feet in the lagoon.

La Valchac

Andina y Estepa Patagónica
Overland
Easy
Full-day

In this exploration we will focus on the Chacabuco River's valleys and route as a natural corridor traveled by nomadic peoples and diverse wildlife since ancestral times. We will discuss the anthropological and paleontological mysteries its rock formations hold, with caves and fossils that are vestiges of a past that it is still possible to bear witness to. These areas are characterized by their lack of snow in the summer and their low vegetation, devoid of trees. This allows you to observe a flat and open landscape where you can feel and live the icy southern wind. It is an experience among the vestiges of pre-Hispanic history and how they relate to the present and conservation.

We will leave by van and take our bikes with us. We reach the outskirts of the town of Cochrane, our starting point, after a 40-minute ride. The bike ride will begin in a sector of fields with crops and livestock, the main economic activities in the area. We will approach from the North, flanking the Cochrane River to appreciate its transparent waters and the trees introduced in the days of the pioneers. As we continue our way, we will come across rolling hills that we will tour with calm so we can take advantage of the views the landscape offers. We end at the bridge over the El Salto River, whose waters come from the very ice of Calluqueo.
