Description

Take in the sights of the historic town of El Calafate and see traditional buildings that date back to the time of the pioneers. This tour is a great way to learn about the town's history and how it came to be what it is today.

Set out from your hotel with a convenient pick-up as your tour vehicle takes you out to explore the town. Just off the coast of Lake Argentino, you can see Laguna Nimez, and try some birdwatching from the vehicle with the help of some powerful binoculars.

On a visit to the nearby orchards, you can see where fine strawberries and cherries are cultivated with great effort. Learn about the different production techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation, and then pass by Cuevas del Gualichu, an archaeological site outside the city, where you can view prints left by the first people to inhabit these lands.

Your final stop is the lookout at Virgen de la Paz, where you can see astonishing views of the town before the ride back to your hotel.
