Cerro Frias Horseriding is a half-day tour in El Calafate area in which you visit this hill by horse while you see wild animals and marvel at spectacular views of The Andes, Lake Argentino, Mount Fitz Roy and Torres del Paine.
Cerro Frias is located near the city of El Calafate, on the way to the Perito Moreno Glacier and, since it is not part of the Andes, it allows to appreciate spectacular panoramic views of Torres del Paine, Cerro Fitz Roy, Cordon de los Cristales, Rico Arm, North Arm and main body of Lake Argentino, Boca del Diablo, Magallanes Peninsula and Avellaneda Peninsula.
The tour begins when you are picked up from your hotel in El Calafate and undertake the 25 km journey to Cerro Frias. There, from Hosteria Eolo, the ride begins going up the side of the hill, where you can see a lengas forest along the way, sunsets with a great variety of colors and native flora and fauna.
During the journey, you cross a fertile plain and climb the foothills of the mountain. Within 30 minutes of starting, you already have important views of the Centinela Valley, Lake Argentino and Torres del Paine. The tour continues in ascent, until reaching the middle of the hill, where there are cows, guanacos, hares and wild foals. After 2 hours on horseback, you descend the mountain.
Upon reaching the base of Cerro Frias, you will have free time in the quincho where you can have lunch or dinner if you wish.
At the end of the tour, you undertake the journey back to the city of El Calafate and your hotel.
