At the very south of Patagonia is El Calafate, a town whose name is familiar to all hikers, adventurers and explorers because it is the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park. It is from here that you venture forth into a national park which is deservedly famous for its stunning turquoise lakes and the most famous glacier in the world: the Perito Moreno. El Calafate holidays might start in this little
town on the steppe - lent a rather picturesque feel with its traditional wooden buildings - but from here it’s a short hop to landscapes that will take your breath away. Embark on epic boat trips across vast lakes strewn with massive icebergs, and marvel at views - right up close - of the Perito Moreno glacier, calving with a mighty roar into the vivid blue waters below. You can even hike on the glacier’s surface and explore the indigo blue ice caves of its crevasses. El Calafate holidays are guaranteed to thrill.
