    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.

    ... said to give in all my clothes but wouldn't be ready til after 9 so no good for me as getting bus at 4.30. Was not in a good mood as she wouldn't give my booking fee back either. She gave me some cream which did **** all apart from nark my skin go white. I dug out my antihistamine tablets to try ease the itching from Caroline's recommendation. So ****** off. Mum facetimed but I wasn't really in the mood to talk but I did then FaceTime Chris and ...

    ... pounds more to climb on the glacier and get 'the whole experience'. We were shuttled up and into the Los Glaciares national park where we walked around the huge panoramic walkway at the foot of the glacier. It's huge! The glacier ends in a lake, opposite an outcrop of land so you can walk around and see the whole foot of the glacier. It was incredible. It's one of the biggest glaciers in South America if I remember correctly - and definitely the most accessible - and is fed ...

    ... balconies. Great views from all along the platforms. The glacier is constantly shifting, which makes for some very interesting sounds - cracking, rumbling, popping. It sounded a lot like thunder. Before I knew it, a huge chunk of ice broke off and started to fall and crashed into the lake with such power and a resounding roar. I have never seen anything like it. It was spectacular!
    Once back to El Calafate, it was definitely time for dinner. I headed ...

    ... triangles for lunch- very tasty. Our drive back to hotel was equally as scenic arriving about 5pm. After our big days adventure we settled on spinach crepe for a light dinner at the hotel.

The 250 km2 (97 sq mi) ice formation, and 30 km (19 mi) in length, is one of ...

    ... with weather conditions favouring us, then pilot chose to take a circuitous route over the glacier, circling around to give passengers on both sides of the plane good views. Awe-inspiring and gob-smacking are terms that don't do justice to the experience of seeing this amazing ice formation from thousands of feet above. It brought tears to our eyes and spontaneous applause from the passengers. On landing in Calafate we were very excited about the ...
