Arroyo Turquesa (Turquoise Brook) is one of the natural jewels of the Argentinean Andes. With this trip from Barreal you will enjoy a beautiful, unique environment that will leave you spellbound.
Arroyo Turquesa Trip
We will pick you up at your hotel in Barreal at 10 am and then set off in a 4x4 jeep to the Laguna Blanca shelter, some 50 miles away.
At this beautiful lake, located at 10,100 ft, we will start a 5-mile trek through the Andes mountains. During the walk through these dreamy landscapes, we will take several 15-minute breaks to rest and make the journey more bearable.
Also, we will stop at the Guanaquitos Post at over 11,000 feet altitude, where we will make a tasting of local products. After lunch, we will follow the route to the famous Arroyo Turquesa natural reserve, which is located at almost 13,500 feet high up in the Andean peaks!
We've finally reached our destination! Do you know what causes the intense color of the stream? We'll reveal the reasons to you as we walk and take pictures along its banks - a memory that will remain etched in your mind forever! We will also see some of the principal species of local Andean fauna and flora.
From the stream, we will return on foot to the place where we started the trekking route. There, we will get back into the jeep to start the return journey to Barreal admiring more spectacular Andean landscapes along the way.
After a short snack break, you will be dropped off at your hotel at midnight.
