Mayo Spirit Experience
The glaciers of Mayo Mount and Negro Mount are located in Mayo Channel in Argentino Lake, in Los Glaciares National Park. The only way to reach them is by sailing along the lake, debarking at Toro Bay and Negro Mount to discover the enchanting austral forest.
We disembark at Toro Bay. Accompanied by a guide, we start a walk through the Andean-Patagonian forest, where we will see cherry and cinnamon trees, lengas and ñires until reaching a 500-year-old cherry tree which has a trunk of more than three meters in diameter. Then, we walk across the forest until reaching a stream fed by a waterfall, which was originated due to landslide, and where we will be able to observe a lime rock formation of approximately 180 meters high and 100 meters wide. 30 minutes later, we return to the boat that will take us to our next stop or destination.
We continue sailing along Mayo Canal in Argentino Lake for another 20 minutes to observe the glaciers of Mayo Mount and the hanging glacier of Negro Mount.
After disembarking, and accompanied by a guide, we start a 1.000 meter walk towards the Andean-Patagonian forest. We will follow a stream which will lead us to the stone wall from where we can observe the Hanging Glacier and where we will be amazed by the 360° views of the landscape, including Mayo Mount and Blanco Mount.
If the weather conditions allow it, this is the perfect place to have lunch in the incredible black rock beach and the magnificent view.
After the lunch break and some time to relax, we go back to the boat, that will take us to the north face of Perito Moreno Glacier. We will disembark at Moreno floating dock, situated at the foot of the walkway, to enjoy the view from the different walkways, and finally we will return to El Calafate according to the itinerary of each passenger.
