El Calafate Pics

El Calafate was beautiful. It was by far the best part of the trip for me. It was a much needed getaway. The landscape was breathtaking and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Even the view from the aiport was pretty.

This plant is the calafate plant. According to a guide, this is the blueberry plant. I was also told that there is a local saying that he who has some calafate jam is destined to return. I hope this is the case.

Sunset day one. This was the view from the hotel deck.

Perito Moreno Glacier, southern face.

Perito Moreno Glacier, northern face.

I have never seen anything like this before in my life.

View after climbing up for a bit.

After a succesful hike, some whisky with glacier ice!

Boat trip back from the glacier.

Final beautiful sunset in El Calafate.
