Calafate

Discover iconic Calafate

Sitting on the edge of Patagonia’s ice field, in the province of Santa Cruz, is the bustling town of Calafate. This is the main entry point to view the advancing Perito Moreno glacier in the popular Parque Nacional los Glaciares.

Calafate is a must for photographers and nature lovers as viewing the ever-shifting landscape of the Perito Moreno is a not-to-be-missed spectacle.

Here, guests can traverse through spectacular iceberg-strewn lakes on a boat ride up to the Perito Moreno to witness it “calve” (huge chunks of ice can fall off the glacier’s snout at a moment’s notice) and also have the opportunity to walk on its icy surface.
