Interesting walk on private land with a friendly, informative guide. We saw plenty of fossilised trees, dinosaur bones and "Star Wars- type" unusual rock formations, in an impressive setting. We used this trip as a transfer between El Calafate and El Chalten, which worked well. We booked it with Walk Patagonia.

There is also a hazardous looking bridge to cross before you get to the area where... 更多
When we went to Patagonia last year we went to El Calafate for the glacier and wanted to go to El Chalten to hike Mt Fitz Roy. Most traveller takes a mini tour bus to get to-for between these 2 towns but I came to know about Bosque Petrificado La Leona from TA and decided to book a day tour... 更多
