We visit the Rio Diamante source, an archeological site dating from 1200 BC, and the place where the famous French aviator Henri Guillaumet had to land his Potez-25 plane, during a storm in the winter of 1930, and then survive in the mountains for six days.

After a short trek, or maybe some fishing in the lake, we share a lunch of home-made local products, such as cheese, ham and salami sandwiches, with fine Valle de Uco wines.

We will do trekking and photo safari in direct contact with guanacos and other species that live in the lagoon.

When the sun begins to set, we return to the camp and then enjoy a typical dinner Cuyo under the spectacular starry sky. Night in tents.
