When Do You Want To Go?

One of the Most Popular And Must See Destinations in Argentina

The Patagonian Continental Ice Cap is a massive 17,000 Km2 mass of ice that forms some of the most dramatic glaciers in the world. The most famous glacier is the Perito Moreno Glacier which allows you to get up close on walkways, by boat or even strap on some crampons and walk on to the glacier itself on a special excursion.

The rest of the area is made up of expansive Patagonian steppe set against the backdrop of the dramatic Andes Mountains and makes for some of the most impressive scenery in Argentina. There are a number of Estancias set right in the heart of the wilderness where you can stay and go riding, trekking or mountain biking in the surrounding landscape.

The Area

Most visitors to the glaciers stay in the nearby small town of El Calafate, which is the main departure point for all the tours in the region. The alpine-like town itself has a nice avenue of shops and restaurants, as well as a couple of Museums.

Also in the area is the village of El Chaltén, which lies at the foot of the legendry Fitz Roy Mountain. The village is the starting point for walking enthusiasts and climbers to enjoy breathtaking views and challenging ascents in the surrounding landscape.

Best Time To Go

Spring and summer are the warmest times (Oct - Feb) where highs can reach 19°C in the sunshine, but the weather is always changeable. Expect cold weather in winter (below freezing) but the snowy landscape is equally as beautiful.
