Kayak Lago del Desierto

Lago de Desierto – an enchanting location. Come and enjoy it and its surroundings from its waters: in a kayak. A day made up of many different adventures – kayak, trekking and great views to admire. A perfect day for those who don’t trek a lot or those that want a break from trekking!

Recommendation: Come and visit Lago del Desierto doing kayak and enjoying beautiful hikes in the forest. A perfect day full of adventures with spectacular views, specially for those that want a break from trekking!

Day 1

The excursion begins with a transfer in the morning along the scenic route that connects El Chaltén to Lago del Desierto, about 37km of gravel road. When we arrive the guide will organise the order of the day – depending on the weather conditions you may first kayak and then have free time for exploring, or the other way round. The guide provides us with waterproof suits and will give basic instructions in how to kayak and other details to bear in mind.

When we are out on the water we’ll be able to enjoy great views of the mountains surrounding us, their lenga forests and hanging glaciers. After a while, we’ll have a short break and enjoy a snack.

In the free time at the lake you’ll be able to go for a self guided walk, there are various options. You could walk along the eastern and western shores of the lake (if you dare to cross over the hanging bridge!), or you could visit the Huemul glacier (this second option is a hanging glacier in private land – if you decide to do this you would have to pay an entrance fee, too.)

In the afternoon we return to El Chaltén, after a great day in the outdoors!

* We recommended you taking an extra set of dry clothes with you, in case. While you are walking in the area you will want trainers or comfortable trekking boots. While you are kayaking if you have a pair of sandals, or quick dry shoes, they would be the best (not flip flops as you may lose them in the lake!) Cameras, mobile phones or any valuable is not recommended – you may lose these items in the lake.
