Cave of the Hands tours are perfect for those interested in history and nature. The Cueva de las Manos (Cave of the Hands) in Patagonia is one of the best works of pre-historic cave paintings, dating several thousands of years ago. The creation process of the handprints, which are painted in bright hues of red, black, white, and yellow, is very interesting. An experienced local guide will explain how the Teheulches people pressed down one hand against the rock and blew the coloring agent through a blowpipe, which then left the vibrant outline of a hand. Paintings of hunting scenes and guanacos are also found here. On a trip to Patagonia, the Cueva de las Manos, or Cave of the Hands, is accessible from El Calafate. So you can combine a trip to the Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glaciares National Park with a trip to the Hands Cave.
