Be prepared to wear good hiking shoes if you plan on walking around town beyond the main street area. Most of the town is located uphill and roads are not paved so you can expect plenty of mudslides if it rained or snow has melted. Don’t be afraid of the “stray” dogs you will see everywhere as it is a common sight throughout the south of Argentina and Chile and locals don’t think twice about them. As a tourist, I would take precaution come nightfall and would call the hotel shuttle to come pick me up.

Excursions leave very early in the morning and return in time for when the town wakes up from siesta at 5 pm. There are 2 supermarkets in town: one at the end of the main street and another one at 20 min hike uphill near La Candela hotel. Your best bet to kill time after hotel checkout and plane departure is the coffee shop at YPF gas station. It is clean, well lit, with plenty of coffee and snacks, tv and newspapers to while away the time. Remember the town shuts down between 1 and 5 pm.

The main street, Libertador, is colourful, clean and offers many souvenir shops as well as restaurants. It is lined with pine trees so you can't miss it. If you want to get a bird's eye view of the area, go south to the end of the street, cross the creek and climb up the stairs on the hilltop. The view is good.

As the plane begins descent, the scrub, mountains and lake come into view. El Calafate, beside the lake is a picturesque place with its main market along road full of restaurants and boutiques. There are a couple of smaller craft markets to explore .And its a great place to pick up some local chocolates. and take a walk along the lake.

This was a great break from sightseeing. Its perfect for those who seek a little adrenaline in their getaway. Its adequate for those of us who aren't really ready to climb the andes but are looking to get our hands a little dirty. The guys were super nice, and super patient, and every security measure and instruction was thoroughly explained and reviewed. I def recommend this tour.

When planning our trip to Argentina I seriously considered dropping El Calafate from our itinerary. But I'm glad I didn't. The town itself is compact and very pleasant, with a good range of accommodation and places to eat, as well as plenty of tour operators on the main street who'll organise excursions to the glaciers, ice treks, four-wheel tours and boat trips. Don't stay too far out of town -- some of the accommodation is a bit isolated -- though taxis aren't at all expensive by UK standards. Tony M

This was a lot more fun than I anticipated. First, it's like a five minute drive from the center of town, the (awesome) guides pick you up from whichever hostel you're staying (I recommend America del Sur). Guides speak very good English, safety standards are heeded, and there's an excellent surprise at the end.

The activity is a combination of zip lining, belayed rock climbing, abseiling and via ferrata. It's not challenging if you've done even a little rock climbing with success in the past, but it's still a lot of fun. There is also a photographer who takes very good pictures that makes the climbing seem more hardcore than it is, perfect for enviable facebook posts. The guides explained to us the mystery that is mate, and even shared theirs. But, there is another, more indulgent surprise at the conclusion.

For me, it was more fun than Big Ice, I've been glacier trekking before and it's not that much different. When the cost difference is considered, I'd much rather spend the day with Enjoy! El Calafate. Thanks guys!

PS Sorry I can't upload a photo, the internet at my hostel is terrible
