Just 23 kilometers distant from El Calafate, on the way to Perito Moreno Glacier, we find the Cerro Frias. The excursion starts from the hotel; the ascent will be by different circuits depending on the option you choose.
The options are; 4WD vehicles, horseback riding, trekking, canopy or mountain bike. During the ascent you are able to enjoy the panoramic view of Torres del Paine, mount Fitz Roy, Lago Argentino North and South Arm, Boca del Diablo, and all the native flora and fauna, returning via the spectacular forest of “lengas”. After two hours, all visitors gather up to finish the tour at the base of the hill and enjoy a snack or lunch.
4×4 CIRCUIT: We start the 4×4 trip from the farm gate ascending Mount Frias, through trails with views of the main arm of Lago Argentino. After twenty minutes, we stop at the first lookout at 450 meters high, facing the Centinela river valley. We continue rising to the second viewpoint at 1.030 meters up, with incredible views of Torres del Paine, Southern and Northern channels of Lago Argentino , the highest picks of the Andes mountain chain and the Fitz Roy Mount, depending on the weather. We continue the 4×4 adventure descending the Frias Mount through the lengas forest in the South slope of the mount, finishing at our Quincho, Estancia Alice’s main house, where we’ll have a meal before returning back to El Calafate.
