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.

This would of course impact on the next days’ activities, so Wendy and Merlin had a conference and decided to change the ...
... one has not been affected. Tuesday 25th our tour was cancelled today the winds were just to bad for the boat. Instead we arranged to do a 4x4 drive up to the highest point overlooking the town of El Calafate. Stunning views of Lake Argentina the largest lake in the area. Our driver has a hut on one of the ranches where we were cooked a BBQ lunch. In the evening we had a (tourist) look over one of the original Estancia in this area and had BBQ lamb ...
... the side of the glacier, with plenty of photo time.
It is then on to the main centre from where we can follow various paths along some boardwalks to have great views of the glacier, lake and mountains. Periodically there is a loud crash as ice breaks off the glacier and crashes down into the water below. We enjoy various views of the glacier, wandering along the various boardwalks for a couple of hours before heading ...
