Only 20 kilometers away from El Calafate, on the same way to the Perito Moreno Glacier, is an old sheep farm named "El Galpon del Glaciar". The establishment is surrounded by 3,5 kilometers of shore of the Lago Argentino and by 1,5 kilometers of riverbank of the Centinela River: both offer an ideal environment to enjoy activities in contact with nature. Welcome. We will be waiting for you to know and to enjoy Patagonia.

We stayed at El Calpon del Glaciar for two nights during our honeymoon in early March. It was a wonderful experience in every way. For context, El Galpon is one of several "Estancias" in the area that operate as a functioning sheep farm that also serves as a hotel during the summ
