LGBT Group Explores El Calafate and the Glaciers of Patagonia

Immediately after the GNetwork360 10th Annual LGBT Tourism & Business Conference in Buenos Aires, a group of LGBT media and conference participants headed down to the southern tip of Argentina, to the town of El Calafate.  Staying at the lodge-like Alto Calafate Hotel, we took the shuttle into town for some local exploring and dining by night, and ventured into Los Glaciares National Park by day, once by boat on Lago Argentino (dinner cruise by MarpaTag Cruises) and another day by bus, where we were able to roam alongside the glacier as it calved icebergs large and small during our visit.

The hospitality of our local hosts was second to none!

 

Notes about El Calafate:
El Calafate is a town near the edge of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field in the Argentine province of Santa Cruz. It’s mainly known as the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park, home to the massive Perito Moreno Glacier, whose ever-shifting icy landscape is popular for hiking and sightseeing. A modern interpretive center called the Glaciarium serves as a primer on the region’s numerous glaciers.
