The Ice of Thousands of Years

Calafate: The Ice of Thousands of Years

Imagine that you have the opportunity to walk on a 190ft high glacier and see the countless shades of blue and white that merge throughout the landscape. Think about enjoying a glass of whisky on the rocks with the ancient ice of that glacier. Nothing of that is impossible at Calafate and The Perito Moreno Glacier, declared Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO. This impressive ice field is worth seeing even from a cruise ship sailing alongside! Calafate proposes much more for you: El Chalten is that natural scenery for those trekking lovers that want to challenge themselves where each viewpoint you stop to contemplate mountains and glaciers will be recorded in your memory.
