What to Expect
Learn the history of El Calafate, one of Argentina’s southernmost cities, and discover how it developed from its pioneer origins to become the center of Patagonian tourism today.

Following a pick-up from your El Calafate hotel, head off to Laguna Nimez, located just a few meters from the coast of Lago Argentino. Here, with the use of the powerful binoculars, provided on board the vehicle, look for indigenous and migratory birds.

Visit the fruit orchards where strawberries, cherries, and sour cherries are grown, and learn about their cultivation in this remote wilderness. You will also hear about the different farming techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Pass by the archaeological ruins of Cuevas del Gualichu to see the rock art left behind by some of the very first inhabitants. Your final stop will be the Mirador of Virgen de la Paz, from where you can take in the astonishing views across El Calafate city.
