Surrounded by nature and wildlife, our trekking through the Carreño valley will delight you with amazing mountain views and will take you to a surprising and old glacier lake.
We will start from our hotel and head east. After 80 km (2 horas) we will arrive to the Colina valley, close to the Argentinian border, where we find the famous Valley Baths. There we will start our walk towards the South heading for the unknown and scarcely visited Carreño valley, which will delight us with breath-taking views of the 3.500 Mt high mountains. After a 4.5 km walk, we will reach our destination: Lake Carreño, an old lake that finds its origin from a glacier and that stoically endured the passing of time. We go back the same way we came.
