el calafate excursion argentina

El Calafate is a peaceful settlement where steppe, mountains, lakes, woods and glaciers coexist with rich native flora and fauna.

It is located on the southern side of Argentino Lake, at the foot of the mountain under the same name, in the southwest of the province of Santa Cruz. El Calafate is the main access to the beautiful Los Glaciares National Park, one of the most amazing parks in Argentina with blocks of thousand-year-old ice floating in the lakes.
At present, it is a very important tourist center and has gained both national and international significance since it is there where all the glacial circuits start: Viedma Glacier, Upsala Glacier, Onelli Glacier, Spegazzini Glacier, Mayo Glacier, Frías Glacier, and Perito Moreno Glacier known as "the eighth wonder of the world" and declared World Natural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1981.

In the village, the main attractions are located along the main avenue, which is full of picturesque houses, shops, restaurants, hostels, public services and handicraft stores, among others.
