“Amazing!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

I found the Lago Argentino to be an amazing place! A lot of glaciars, and in the Laguna a lot of flamingos and wild geese!

“Lakeside Attractions”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Lago Argentino is the largest body of fresh water in Argentina. Baptized by Francisco Perito Moreno, this lake is situated in the Santa Cruz Province, and its closest town is Calafate. The lake is part of Los Glaciares National Park, from where numerous glaciers and rivers feed this seemingly endless lake.

The main attractions around the lake included boat navigations to some of the many glacier fronts. Perito Moreno and Upsala glaciers were among the very favorites and most accessible. Other activities included fishing in the lake and Santa Cruz River, ice trekking on Perito Moreno, horseback riding, and for the more adventurous there is one company doing kite-surfing in the bay in front of town!

On the south shore of the Lake is the picturesque town of Calafate. Here you will find on the main street a wide variety of culinary options, bars, handicraft shops, ice-cream vendors and local chocolate stores. Calafate is a fun town that has plenty of touristy alternatives to enjoy.

Keep in mind that most stores closes for lunch and then reopened until quite late at night. Remember that Argentina is famous for their steaks and sweet “alfajores”, you won´t be sorry! Money exchange and ATM´s are found on the main street also, although most stores accept credit cards. Overall this was a great trip and I recommend this to anyone!
