DAY 04 | EL CALAFATE

Fuel up for an active day exploring the incredible glacier Perito Moreno! Only 80 km away from El Calafate, in Los Glaciares National Park, the Perito Moreno Glacier —the only glacier that is still growing— rises majestically. Enter the Patagonic Andean forest with a breathtaking first glance at the glacier from "Curva de los Suspiros" (Curve of Sighs). Travel to "Bajo las Sombras" Bay port to embark on a 20 minute boat journey to the coast alongside the glacier. In small groups, conducted by experienced guides, walk along the lakeshore to reach the glacier itself. From here, it will be necessary to put on crampons in order to walk on the frozen surface. In an unforgettable 1-hour route, witness different ice formations, such as cracks, seracs, drains, and small pools. Cross the thick Magellan forest, visit Canal de los Tempanos, and stop at a glacier viewpoint. Restrictions: due to the degree of effort and difficulty that this excursion presents, is NOT allowed for; pregnant women, travelers over the age of 65 or anyone with a disability or health problem that severely affects mobility or endurance.

From the very beginning, Patagonia Camp has been developed based on sustainable principles, our belief in helping protect our planet, and our utmost care and commitment for Patagonia. Patagonia Camp was built using the most eco-friendly methods, all while being the most respectful that we can be for our native environment.

Patagonia Camp was created so that each of our guests can feel and enjoy the wonderful nature of Patagonia from the comfort of their own private room. Our yurts provide guests a unique experience to be able to have an intimate contact with nature – the magical sounds of the wind blowing, rain falling and being able to see the stars all from the central dome of your private yurt. Our concept allows our guests to experience one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes right from your windows alongside being surrounded by an incredible and aromatic native forest where our walkways and viewing platforms are located.

Patagonia Camp is committed to our local culture and our staff reflects just that. Most of our staff are based locally, and this allows our guests to experience a unique cultural exchange where they can learn and understand the local customs and history of Patagonia. Most of our decorations, crafts and souvenirs have been created by local artisans and small local businesses as we believe this is fundamental in the promotion of local culture.
