Discover the beautiful fossilized trunks and ferns of the Petrified Forest with this trip from Barreal. These wonderful landscapes will be forever etched in your memory!

Petrified Forest Trip

At the scheduled time, we will pick you up at your hotel in Barreal in an all-terrain jeep. First we head to the romantic Calle de Los Enamorados avenue, where we will see the wonderful monument to Cupid.

After paying tribute to the god of love, we will continue by driving into the Tontal foothills. In this stunning area we will drive along a dry riverbed of an extinct river in the 4x4. We will arrive at the old bentonite mines, where inside we will encounter amazing paleontological remains.

From there, we will follow the route to the Petrified Forest, where we will see a large group of fossilized ferns and trunks that date back thousands of years. You will hear about the origins of this natural phenomenon while enjoying a delicious snack of traditional products.

Afterward, we will continue exploring the mountains, caves, and slopes of the Petrified Forest. This is one of the most unique natural areas in the Argentine province of San Juan and the perfect place to practice landscape photography!

Finally, we will return to your hotel in Barreal, arriving arrive three hours after we departed.
