New Photos – El Calafate and the Perito Moreno Glacier

After pigging out on asados in El Chalten and being amazed by Cerro Fitz Roy, we headed south to El Calafate, one of the biggest tourist destinations in Patagonia, mainly because of the spectacular Perito Moreno glacier. We had some pretty unique experiences in the area and to kick things off, we spent three days in the lap of luxury at the Hosteria Los Hielos basking in the hot tub, sweating in the sauna and soaking up the views of Lago Argentina. Before we headed out to Perito Moreno with everyone else in town, we were lucky enough to check out Ecocamp Patagonia for a few days. the Ecocamp is located on a large piece of private land just opposite the glacier and is situated in a truly amazing landscape complete with moss covered trees, large mountain peaks and crystal clear lakes. Billy and Eduardo run the Ecocamp and if you are thinking about coming to Patagonia, it is definitely a great place to bunk down for the night and a good base to explore the surrounding area, the highlight of which is obviously the massive glacier nearby. Perito Moreno is actually one of the only glaciers in the world that is advancing and it is also one of the biggest, however, you can not truly appreciate the size of this massive spectacle of nature without viewing it up close and with your own eyes.
