Runner Notes

Not really a running locale, but you could.

Description

If you are visiting El Calafate and you like birds, this is a great side trip. There are over 80 types of birds that regularly visit this ecological reserve. Along the trail there are interpretive signage in both Spanish and English. Much of the trail goes along boardwalks and there are multiple viewing areas.

The wind can be so powerful it will blow your face off so make sure you are prepared.

Flora & Fauna

Tons of water birds, Flamingo, Black-Faced Ibis, Swans, ducks and more.
