Many adventures in the heart of the steppe

Crossings in the Steppe


We begin the activity ascending the Frias hill along mountain paths with views of the main body of Lake Argentino. After about 20 minutes we stop at the first viewpoint at 450 m high with views of the Centinela River valley. We continue ascending to the second viewpoint at 1030 m with views of the Torres del Paine, the Rico and South arms of Lake Argentino, Lake Roca, Cordon de los Cristales, Canal de los Témpanos and North Arm of Lake Argentino, Boca del Diablo, the highest peaks of the Cordillera de Los Andes and Cerro Fitz Roy if the weather conditions allow it.


The route begins by crossing a meadow to start climbing the slopes of the mountain. 30 minutes from the start, you already have views of the Centinela Valley and the Torres del Paine. The route continues ascending, until reaching elevated fields on the hill, where eventually the ranch’s cattle (cows) and wild animals such as guanacos, hares, foxes, armadillos and skunks (skunks) can be seen. From this field, you have an impressive view of Lake Argentino, Torres del Paine, Brazo Rico, Estancia Anita valley, among others.
