El Calafate Holidays

Located in the Argentine province of Santa Cruz, the town of El Calafate is the perfect spot for hikers and sightseers alike. With a selection of easy trails and viewing platforms, you can observe the wilderness from every angle.

Alternatively, you can drift around the icebergs on an ice river sailing tour and experience the natural beauty of the surrounding glaciers. Argentina’s largest freshwater lake called Argentino Lake is a beautiful view whether you are on a boat or observing from land.

Enjoy a champagne picnic in Onelli Bayis and wait around until the stars appear in the crystal clear sky. Lack of pollution means you won’t find a better star-gazing spot. For a taste of local cuisine, a must-try is the Patagonic Lamb "Cordero Patagónico", the signature dish in El Calafate.

There is a selection of great hotels in El Calafate, ranging from basic rooms to luxurious five-star accomodation. In the summer months, you’ll also find camping sites available for rent, which are perfect for the more adventurous travellers.  

El Calafate was named after the Calafate bush found in the southern area of Patagonia. It is believed that those who eat the purple fruit from this bush will always return to Patagonia…so this gorgeous place could become your yearly holiday spot!
