After our trekking and kayak adventures, it was time to leave Puerto Natales and make the five hour bus journey eastwards across the border to El Calafate in Argentina. Whilst there we took the opportunity to visit the Perito Merino Glacier and watch it calving into the Brasso Nord of Lago Argentino- a remarkable sight, but very much a controlled “tourist” experience. For our next outdoor adventures we had to take another three hour journey northeast to El Chalten, the trekking centre for the Fitz Roy Range The first sight of Fitz Roy as you approach across the “esteppa” or semi-desert is unforgettable.
