The excursion offers an anthropological and historical approach to the passage of man in these lands, rediscovering the experiences of the first expeditions ventured into the unknown by the Santa Cruz River and Lake Argentino.
The tour focuses on the history of the first expeditionary contacts with the Tehuelches (native Indians of the area), crossing cliffs and marveling at views of Lake Argentino and the Andes Mountains.
After being picked up at your hotel in El Calafate, the first stop is at lakeshore where flora and fauna are interpreted and you will be given also an explanation about glaciology and geology.
The second stop will be at the cliffs facing the lake from where you will have magnificent views of the environment.
Finally, on the third stop, you will visit the archaeological site. Here, you will see ruprestre art in cave paintings next to shore of the lake, where thousands of years ago the Tehuelche culture left its mark on the rock and today we can interpret it.

After finishing the tour and meal, you return to El Calafate.
