Luxury Travel to El Calafate

Giant Glaciers and the Magnificent Patagonian Steppe

The Glacier region is without doubt one of the country’s most beautiful areas and the highlight of many people’s trip to Argentina. The Perito Moreno Glacier is the most famous in the park and is one of the few glaciers in the world that is still advancing.

The sight, and sound, of watching monumental chunks of glacier ice split and crash into the water is a spectacular phenomenon to behold and it’s an experience that we would recommend for anyone on our private tours of Argentina.

The nearby town of El Calafate has grown rapidly in recent years to accommodate the influx of tourism to the area. However, though no destination in itself, El Calafate is still a pleasant place to stay with some good restaurants and boutique shops.

When to go

Can be visited all year round though some lodges are shut in the colder winter months.

What to do
  • Visit the Perito Moreno Glacier where you can witness huge pieces of ice collapsing into the lake

  • Trek on top of the glaciers

  • Horseriding on the steppe

  • Boat trips across the lakes

  • Visit traditional estancias
