In the heart of Argentinian Patagonia, El Calafate boasts a backdrop of the magnificent Lago Argentino, complete with candy pink flamingos. Calafate is named after a bush common to the area, and it’s said that if you eat a berry from the bush, that you’re guaranteed to return to Patagonia. El Calafate has been proclaimed ‘National Capital of the Glaciers’ and is the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park, home of Perito Merino Glacier. Exuding a fun and relaxed atmosphere, the city centre has plenty of little souvenir shops, chocolate shops and restaurants, all housed in alpine-esque wooden chalets – a perfect fit for such dramatic natural surroundings.
