Our next stop was about an 1 1/2 plane ride to El Calafate, where we found a B&B in the center of town for our 5 day stay.
 
El Calafate is a little village in Patagonia. It is situated in the southern border of Lake Argentino, in the southwest part of the Santa Cruz Province, about 200 miles Northwest from Ri­o Gallegos. Its name comes from a little bush with yellow flowers very common in Patagonia, with dark blue berries: the calafate (Berberis buxifolia); the word comes from the tehuelche language. El Calafate is an important tourist destination as the hub to visit different parts of the Los Glaciares National Park, including the Perito Moreno Glacier (one of the most visited in the world). This stop was to see and hear glaciers! 
 
The pictures above are those of our boat ride with the Los Glaciares Park finding glaciers and views from the water.
