Flight fun and finally Patagonia

A travel blog entry by keithandkim

This is a top pick!

... the plane and left without any issues. The flight was awesome as we skirted the Andes and had some good views along the way.
As we flew into El Calafate, the sheer beauty of Patagonia came into view. Stunning mountain peaks, glacial lakes and valleys.
We gathered our bags in one of the neatest airports to date, with a very mountainy feel, stone and wood throughout.

We arranged a shuttle before heading into town. We instantly loved ...

On to the glacier

... shown the glacial river and the old water wheel and then had our sandwich lunch provided by the hotel (but please note it was tuna salad and not cheese and ham). After lunch we were taken by our guide on a tour of the 'museum' which was an old sheep shearing shed which was highly original - it even still smelled of sheep wee although the last sheep on the ranch were sold almost 20 years ago!
