Road of Mount Zeballos from Los Antiguos See map

Route 41, also known as the Road of Mount Zeballos, combines steppe landscapes with rock formations that resemble a lunar landscape.

From Los Antiguos you start from the viewpoint of Jeinimeni River, 2 kilometers from downtown, from which you can see the town and Lake Buenos Aires. At 22 kilometers of the route it appears natural and scenic spot and following a few kilometers along it is the geological formation "Toscas Bayas", formed by cliffs of sedimentary rock.

Moving through the rock formation, landscape changes from steppe to a beech and ñires forest, perfect for a walk through virgin paths.

Following the tour you can visit several farms dedicated to the production of wool and then you reach some rock formations that are called "cucuruchos". Within this landscape, that resembles the moon, you can go trekking with a guide. The tour lasts approximately 1 hour traveling these cones of stone eroded by the wind.

Ahead lies the highest point of the province of Santa Cruz, El Portezuelo, at 1500 meters. This point is characterized by the complete absence of vegetation and its lava formations thus formerly it was a crater of a volcano.

The last point of this journey is the town of Lago Posadas. There are lakes Posadas and Pueyrredón with their attractive color contrasts, the former has turquoise waters while in the second the water is dark blue.

This alternative route, for those who like to enjoy travel by unexplored paths, adds 165 kilometers through lakes, rivers, hills, forests and steppes. Incredible landscapes in which you can hike, horseback riding, fishing or simply enjoying life outdoors.
