Accommodation

 

ACCOMMODATION IN THE GLACIERS AREA

There are  good hotels to choose from,   either in the small town of Calafate   (Posada Los Alamos,  Hotel Quijote,   Hotel Kau Yatun),  or within the park itself  (Hosteria Los Notros - an all inclusive exclusive resort, with a beautiful view on the Brazo Rico lake and the southern cone of the Perito Moreno glacier.  This hotel is located in  the privileged area of the National Parks, close to the glaciers, 70 kms from Calafate and 5 kms form glacier walking path)     Another very exclusive and sophisticated place to stay (out of town, near the glaciers  what would seem the heart of Patagonia, is the international hotel and restaurant "Alta Vista" (Relais & Chateaux chain), usually opening not before mid October, subject to weather conditions. Located 35 kms out of town (on the way to the glaciers) this hotel is located within a 60.000 hectares estancia (Patagonian farm) with 40.000 sheep head.

 

There are also  ranches (estancias) either smaller or bigger, offering accommodation.  Nibepo Aike is a small charming one, where to breath pure, simple, friendly atmosphere and there are many others, some of them an excellent option for cheaper (not always) cosy accommodation, to savor the immensity of Patagonian plains and also meeting extraordinary people.

 

If you are searching for less expensive  options, choose the youth hostels either in the town of Calafate  (nice, brand new double rooms added) or in the  small town of El Chalten,  and there visit the magnificent Fitz Roy area.

 

Detailed information of accommodation in the area will be added as soon as possible. Meanwhile, if needing anything special, please contact me.
