El Calafate tourism thrives mostly thanks to the city's proximity to a World Heritage-listed national park, famed for containing over 40 large glaciers.
Get a sense of the local culture at Glaciarium Museo del Hielo Patagónico and El Calafate Historical Interpretation Center. Visiting Parque Nacional Los Glaciares and Laguna Nimez Reserva Natural Municipal will get you outdoors. Go for a jaunt from El Calafate to Los Glaciares National Park to see Glaciar Spegazzini about 1h 45 min away. There's lots more to do: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, explore the striking landscape at Upsala Glacier, contemplate the waterfront views at Lago Argentino, and look for gifts at Vellon Negro.

To find where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the El Calafate vacation app .

Expect a daytime high around 57°F in December, and nighttime lows around 56°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
