A trip to El Calafate takes you to some of the world's most impressive mountain ranges like Fitz Roy and glaciers such as Perito Moreno and the surrounding Glaciers National Park in the heart of Patagonia. At Perito Moreno experience massive chunks of ice falling off the glacier spectacularly crashing into the lake below. Get to know the glaciers more intimately with a glacier trek around Perito Moreno or kayaking in the lakes below Upslala Glacier. Nearby El Chalten is the gateway to the Fitz Roy Range and excellent trekking opportunities along this spectacular area of the Andes. Enjoy the El Calafate region on an extension of a longer journey of Patagonia or Antarctica and in combination with a trip to the Chilean side of Patagonia to the impressive trekking mecca of Torres del Paine for a full Patagonia experience.
