This tour takes us from 400 m up to 1,500 m above sea level while we enjoy the transition from the Patagonian steppe to High Mountain landscape when we arrive at Portezuelo.
Along the trip, we can see a wide range of birds, such as great bustards, ducks, black-chested buzzard-eagles, condors, among others. Lagoons, streams, rivers and multiform and multicolor mountains are the permanent and dominant landscapes throughout the tour.
We return to Los Antiguos to have lunch and go all over this beautiful touristic town on the shores of the second-biggest lake in South America, Buenos Aires Lake. We visit many farms where berries are produced and, depending on the season of the year, we can please our palates with cherries, strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants and more fruits picked by you. It is a real pleasure!! The visit to the farm “Estancia La Ascensión” inside PATAGONIA NATIONAL PARK is the grand finale of the tour.
