Overview

This site has an imposing view of Lake Argentino and serves as a meeting point for this original excursion that manages to interest us in anthropology and archeology while observing its geological formation of sedimentary rocks and vegetation of the steppe type. You can see here eaves and natural caves used by the Neolithic man to leave his prints with paintings dating back to approximately 4,500 years old, according to research conducted by the Museum of Natural Sciences of La Plata, in 1988.

itinerary

The route of the interpretation trail will involve a simple walk of 45 minutes to 1 hour. There is a sample with fossils, original projectile tips, tools, and photos of the latest Tehuelches.
Punta Walichu is a journey back in time. In addition to its archaeological value, it surprises the beauty of the landscape, ideal for enjoying on its rocky coasts.
Around 5:15 p.m and 5:30 p.m, we leave Punta Walichu to go to the Glaciarium, the Patagonian Ice Museum, a modern center dedicated to disseminating Patagonian Ice. The suggestive architecture of straight lines and glacier-like geometry invites you to discover this fascinating world.
In dioramas, some of the formations presented by glaciers are recreated by combining photographs and scenery. You can watch an audiovisual show on three screens and a spherical projection to learn about the history of our planet. Tour the great Patagonian glaciers, and know their details and behavior. Imagine how it is one of the great ice extensions in the world to see our model of Southern Patagonian Ice.
We return to the hotels at approximately 7:00 p.m.
