Took a trip to Argentina and I had to make to make a stop at El Calafate! I was in heaven the whole time. It is so pretty! and the noise of the wind and the cracking ice is epic. My only regret was not buying the trek tour which would have gotten me on the glacier!!!

I would classify El Calafate as “interesting”. The town has a wild west frontier town feel, which is quite edgy and has its own charm. If it was not for the glaciers though, I would not rush to go there. That said, the people are really friendly and helpful. And the food is pretty good. But the reason the place exists is the magnificent scenery surrounding it. The glaciers are simply awesome. The air is clear and fresh. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The must see & do activities are: • Mini trekking on Perito Moreno glacier • Boat trip to Upsala Glacier and if the budget can extend that far, Estancia Christina. The air, sunrises and sunsets are free, but the rest do come at quite a price. But worth every cent.
