TravelPod Member ReviewsKau Yatun Hotel & Estancia El Calafate
A little out of the way of the main tourist town, this hotel has beautiful grounds. At night we could hear the rustling of the leaves outside our window. The hotel is very comfortable and within walking distance of the town, although it is easy to get lost on the way back. The restaurant is nice with limited options, but good quality.

Arriving by plane, again I was surprised by the terrain on the approach to El Calafate. When I hear Patagonia, I associate it with beautiful mountain vistas. It is true, but much of the land outside of the national parks is very austere, dry, windswept mesas. Much of the ground cover is short thorny bushes from which El Calafate gets its name.We …

The high tourist season was officially hanging on its last thread. The main highway that connects the Patagonia was dead to road inhabitants. Luckily it was another stunner of a day, so chilling on the roadside was no biggie, killing ...
... a waterfall at one point, to get to the edge of the ice. We were each then fitted with a harness and given crampons to put on over our shoes, we were divided in to groups on 10 and then we headed on to the glacier. Our guide seemed more adventurous than the others and instead of taking a set route his took us off to an area of the ice that he wanted to explore himself. At times we had to turn back as the route wasn't safe, but he ...
... off to the nearest campsite which was much fancier than we were used to - plugs, lights, and sinks everywhere! The showers were boiling and the ground was soft and flat - how luxurious (oh, how I've changed)! We even bumped into a couple of Aussies that we'd met in Mendoza months before - what are the chances - and as they were leaving they donated their tent to Christopher! First class, as he kept saying as he stepped in and out of it, first class. The next day we ...
