Leg Three: Into the Andes

Moving onwards and upwards, our next stop El Calafate

As we near the three week mark of our little adventure, we are happily heading towards the Andes and El Calafate for more camping and a little bit of peace in nature. The mountains, glaciers and Beagle channel of Ushuaia were truly extraordinary and left quite the impression on both of us. After several ambitious hikes through the rocky terrain, we now feel very prepared to get serious trekking accomplished.

In this corner of the country, we’re looking forward to horseback riding at a classic Argentinean estancia, hiking around crystal blue lakes and the promise of one mammoth glacier, Glaciar Perito Moreno. Stay tuned for lots more adventure!
