3rd largest lake in South America
Feb 2020
The colors were stunning and it truly is a wonderful lake next to the airport as you fly in! You can also take short or long boat trips out to see the various glaciers,

It’s the view from my hotel!
Feb 2020
I absolutely forgot to mention in my El Calafate hotel review that it’s the view of my hotel Los Hielos. It’s actually the selling point of the hotel, but honestly it wasn’t necessary since the service and hospitality was very excellent.

Lago Argentino is indeed beautiful. It was a coincidence that the town was celebrating the day it was found when I stayed in the hotel too. They said famous singers had a concert —not that I know any of them.

Huge Glacier Lake
Feb 2020 • Couples
The lake in many ways centers El Calafate which arose on its eastern side. The dry sparse vegetation one side , the towering peaks of the snow capped Patagonia Ice Fields to the West. Near the city side is a large walk around path which many bird species are visible especially so in early part of morning.

Beautiful, huge, windswept lake
Jan 2020 • Friends
We stayed 3 nights in El Calafate and visited Argentina’s Los Glaciers National Park. There were many views of this vast lake with its great mountains on the west end. We then took a bus to El Chalten and drove the entire south shore and around the east end. It appears to be chilly and very windy much of the time. As cold and windy as it was, it attracted parasails that waved at high speeds across the lake.

huge lake
Jan 2020
It is hard to comprehend the scale of the lake. Just take in segments, go on a glacier trip to Peito Moreno or Est Christina. Go to the nature reserve in El Calafate to see the wildlife. Quite a lake.

Lake cruise
Jan 2020 • Solo
Cruising the lake is a fantastic way to visit three or more glaciers where they enter the lake, calving fairly large icebergs which can be viewed as close as 200 meters. The boat is comfortable, with a bar and food service. Excellent tour for people with limited mobility. The technical discourses by the tour guides were very well done (geology, climatology, etc). Highly recommended.

Lago Argentino is the most beautiful place I have seen in my life. Taking a tour with Marpatag, the boat took me through different parts of the lakes and allowed me to marvel at the water, mountains, and glaciers. Comparing this to Canada and Norway, it still ranks number one in my opinion. There was a crack from the near-by glacier a few days before I visited and I had an opportunity to see multiple floating blue ices on the emerald green water (as it is a cloudy day; otherwise, it is supposed to be light blue in the sun)

The color blue
Jan 2020
Lago Argentina is hard to miss as you visit El Calafate. It is tempting to stop multiple times to capture the color blue and the occasional iceberg floating past.

Magnificent colour
Jan 2020 • Couples
The colour of the lake is amazing. On windy days you will get to see icebergs coming all the way from Upsala glacier
