itinerary

There will be plenty of time here to enjoy views of Lake Guillermo and the eastern side of the Upsala Glacier, as well as the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, before beginning the 14km trek through Fossil Canyon. The fascinating Cañadón de Los Fósiles, which is around 170 million years old, has been named for its immense concentration of marine fossils, imprints of squid and jellyfish among them, left behind after the last ice age. We can observe a kaleidoscope of colors across this terrain, the canyon’s walls rising beside us as we gradually descend until reaching a ravine at the edge of the valley. Along the way, we’ll stop and tuck into our box lunches before leaving the canyon behind, having explored it fully, then arriving back at the estancia and later onward to the port.
