El Calafate is a Young town founded in 1927. Its name is derived from a little bush with yellow flowers and dark blue berries that is very common in Patagonia.
Los Glaciares National Park, was declared a Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO. This place is a very important tourist destination as the hub to visit the best Patagonia tours, enjoy different places inside the national park Los Glaciares such as Perito Moreno Glacier, Upsala Glacier, Spegazzini Glacier, Frias Glacier, El Chalten and its Fitz Roy and Torre Mounts,.
The gem of this national park, Perito Moreno Glacier is sliding down from atop the southern continental ice field, Moreno’s 70-m wall of ice sporadically chokes off the narrow Canal de Los Tempanos, creating a natural ice dam, which eventually explodes in a dynamic display of force every 3/4 years depending on the weather. You can enjoy close-up views of the approaching front wall of the glacier taking a one-hour boat cruise from the local port. This is one of the best Patagonia holidays you can ever take.
