I would really recommend just walking around Lago Argentino from El Calafate to the left - go on until you see the snowy mountains on the other side, one of the nicest long walks in my life

Lago Argentino is a huge lake, with snowcapped mountains near the Chilean border, and mostly brush vegetation on the banks. It is very sparsely populated, and distances between towns are huge.

I visited the lake in Feb, 2015. The lake can be reached through a door way from the Laguna Nimez Reserve. The colors are fascinating with multiple hues of blue. But, the place is really windy and the water is extremely cold. Worth a few good pictures or just sitting there for some time. It is easily reachable from the... More

The colors are amazing. Location in the middle of the mountains and direction Perito Moreno. During the day depending on the light the lake looks different and always beautifoul.

Fantastic place to go and check for yourself. If you go to Calafate, you canot miss any of the attractions from nature. Don´t forget that most probably is the main reason why you went there...

Yes interesting if you are 60+ years but younger crowd can do other more adventurous tours. Lago Argentino is beautiful lake but there are other option in the area.

Serenely beautiful. I spent a couple hours ambling about near the water's edge enjoying the beauty and rejuvenating my mind. Find a comfortable rock, sit, relax, absorb the views. Implant them in your mind. Talk about medicine for the mind!

Sailed on this lake on the way to the wonderful Upsala glacier. Nothing special beside little icebergs floating.
