Our Expert Photographer Guide will take you to discover and capture the best nature images in the region. You'll enjoy incredible landscapes as we experience a day of fishing or hiking alongside one of the most beautiful sites in the province of Mendoza - the natural water mirror, surrounded by grazing guanacos and spectacular virgin nature.
We'll set out on National Route N°40, traveling 120 km before arriving in the city of San Carlos (Pareditas). From there, we'll venture down a gravel road as we begin our ascent, just west of the valley. We'll cruise up and down slopes and around switchbacks, while climbing to over 4,000 meters above sea level. We'll then head down to the Diamond Lagoon, a spectacular mirror of water created from the Maipo Volcano's melting glaciers, located on the boarder of the neighboring country of Chile. Here, we'll find the headwaters of the Diamond River, which trickle downhill to irrigate south of the province. To top off our adventure, we'll enjoy a delicious Criollo barbecue (grilled meat and salads) accompanied by exquisite wines.
