Pousada simples, bem localizada no centro de El Calafate. A simpatia dos donos compensa o desjejum muito pobre. Os colchões dos quartos 9 e 10 precisam ser trocados por outros mais firmes. Eu voltaria, mas só recomendo para turistas pouco exigentes.

Cost: 970 Pesos. We then got back to the hotel for shower and bed - boys went to bed at 10 ...
... off the Southern Ice Field. This made the first 20 minutes of the walk a little unpleasant. Then we reached the shelter of a beautiful beech forest- 2 species, Northofagus Antarctica (Nire) and Northofagas Pumilio (Lenga). There was lots of moss and lichen and "indian bread", a fungus that attacks the bark of the beech tree.
Lunch was had perched on fallen logs, after which there was a short walk to reach ...
... dramatically in the last decade - guess global warming theorists would love this. At 60 miles long it is one of the longest in South America. It is fed by many smaller glaciers and in turn feeds Perito Moreno Glacier. Not as spectacular as Perito Moreno but meandering through the icebergs was a magical highlight.
From a different branch of the lake we travelled to the Spegazzini Glacier. ...
... walk up a tiny winding staircase and you find a very warm, friendly pub/cafe/restaurant.
Yesterday we went to see the Perito Moreno Glacier which is in Los Glaciers National Park. The glacier is massive, reportedly bigger than Buenos Aries. The blue colour against the grey sky is what one notices first. Then CRASH, down thunders a sheet, or perhaps a chunk of ice into the murky azure water below. If it's the latter, it's followed by squeals and wolf whistles.
