ADVENTURE DOMESEl Calafate is a different way of traveling, with all our senses on the preservation of the environment. Hiking, trekking and adventure travel in Patagonia Argentina. The Adventure Domes are placed in front of Perito Moreno Glacier, in Las Colonias peninsula, located between Roca and Rico lakes. The geographical location of the Adventure Domes is a gently undulating surface, due to different glaciations, where you will be able to walk and enjoy the deciduous Magallanico forest, composed by native species such as Nothofagus Antarctic (ñire), Nothofagus pumilio (lenga), and some Nothofagus betuloides (coihue Magellan), the only evergreen species in our forest.

Then continue our nice trip at El Chalten until AGUAS ARRIBA LODGE, that is a privileged place with 900 m of shoreline on Lake Desert with amazing views of the North Face of Fitz Roy Glacier and Vespignani. Access is by boat or around a pristine forest, a magical place where you can live nature and explore the place unfrequented paths and navigate the lake to dream beaches.
