Patagonia, as EOLO, offers outdoor options that are in line with each guest's interests, physical condition and available time. Our options even take into account the climate oscillations of our always temperamental Patagonia.
To help visitors make the choice that is right for them, we divide the itineraries per area. Our recommendation is for visitors to choose one activity per area, per day. Keep in mind that the activities that take place outside our property do have an additional cost.DOWNLOAD ACTIVITIES MENU
We suggest guests reserve at least one day for touring EOLO and its surroundings. There are many activities that are exclusively available to our guests. The hotel has its own guide who coordinates all of the outdoor experiences: trekking, mountain bike, bird watching, four wheel drive outings, canopy and horseback riding tours.
The greatest attraction in the area and only a 50 minute ride from the hotel. Once inside the National Park, one or more of these options may be chosen: a) main viewpoint plus walkways in front of the glacier b) short duration boat cruise along the glacier's front wall c) trekking or walk on the ice using crampons. The latter alternative may be of a short or long duration, depending on preferences.
The Upsala glacier is the largest glacier that flows from the Lago Argentino and the Spegazzini is one of the most impactful. Access to these is only a 30 minute ride from EOLO to Puerto Punta Bandera. Once in Punta Bandera, there are many options: a choice of boats allow for the possibility of navigating Lago Argentino through its icebergs, you can also visit old, traditional estancias; ride on four wheel drive vehicles through the area, kayak on the lake or trek in this beautiful setting.
El Chalten is the national trekking capital and the perfect destination from which to see - and admire - Mount Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Viedma Glacier and Lago del Desierto. The town is two and a half hours away. Those who wish to experience this adventure but prefer not to stay overnight in El Chaltén have the option of doing it as a daylong excursion.
Guests who have more time may add other alternatives like four wheel drive tours, a visit to the Ice Museum (Glaciarium), hikking in the Roca Lake area, fly fishing or a city tour of El Calafate.
