Travel Tips for El Calafate

A special character

by andal13

Another "character" made my trip to El Calafate very special; the cavalcade had not been the same without "Petunia", the beautiful (and resistant) mare I rode.

Otro "personaje" hizo muy especial mi viaje a El Calafate; la cabalgata no hubiera sido la misma sin "Petunia", la hermosa (y resistente) yegua que monté.

Weather

by anabelsousa

For outdoor activities you need to take warm clothing (polar fabric is the best), jogging outfit, raincoat and a hat. Near the glaciers and in the mountains, don’t forget to take a windbraker Summer days are very long, there is sunlight until 10:30 PM. Take a hat or a cap and don’t forget to take sunscreen lotion N° 30 or higher. It is highly recommended to use UV filter sunglasses, specially when visitin glaciers. Under low temperatures, batteries run out faster, so have always an extra supply..

Rupestrian paintings (3)

by andal13

Believe it or not, I found these "rupestrian paintings"made recently, over the millenia real ones... Who are the primitive people?

Créanlo o no, encontré estas "pinturas rupestres" hechas recientemente, sobre las pinturas milenarias.... ¿Quiénes son los primitivos?

Argentina's largest lake

by TheWanderingCamel

El Calafate sits on the southern shore of Lago Argentino, the biggest of all the lakes that lie completely within Argentina's borders. Seen from space, the lake looks like some giant squid, only this creature's tentacles reach into the glaciers that feed its body with the millions of litres of glacial meltwater that fill the lake to a depth of as much as 500 metres over an expanse of almost 1500 square metres.

The lake's vast size and depth mean its waters always a near-freezing 8 degrees. On sunny days the lake is an exquisite milky turquoise-blue, the beautiful colour (photo 1) due to minute particles of suspended solids that are so small they remain suspended for weeks before they settle to the lake bed. On more overcast days it can be a dull grey (photo 2) one minute and a glittering sparkling silver the next. (photo 3). As you can imagine, the winds that blow across the lake (photo 4) are icy so be sure to come prepared with hat, gloves and a good windproof jacket.

Main Street

by andal13

The main street of El Calafate is Libertador Avenue; actually it is a stretch of the route that joins Rio Gallegos with the Andes Range. The "downtown" is concentrated on a couple of blocks; there you will find shops, restaurants, banks, travel agencies, the post office, locutories, hotels, and of course, the square and the church.

La calle principal de El Calafate es Avenida Libertador; en realidad, es un tramo de la ruta que une Rio Gallegos con la Cordillera de los Andes. El "centro" se concentra en unpar de cuadras; allí encontrarán comercios, restaurantes, bancos, agencias de viajes, el correo, locutorios, hoteles, y por supuesto, la plaza y la iglesia.
