Introduction

El Calafate is one of the most popular and visited places in the whole of Patagonia. A small resort town that sits in the southern sector of Santa Cruz province, within close proximity to the Chilean border and the Andes Mountain range. It's a picturesque town with tree-lined streets and a multitude of hotels, restaurants, caf├ęs, bars and shops. The name EL Calafate was derived from a small fruit berry bush commonly found in Patagonia. 

The town is the gateway to visit the world-famous Glaciers National Park. A UNESCO world heritage site that boasts an impressive three hundred and fifty six different glaciers, the largest and most impressive being the 5km wide, 60m high Perito Moreno. Here you can hike on the glacier, observe the damming of water that it instigates and occasionally see a piece of it rupturing and breaking off into the water to create a floating iceberg!!
