Declarado Patrimonio Natural de la Humanidad por la UNESCO
El Calafate town is the gate to enter Los Glaciares National Park, declared Natural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 1981.
It is the main attraction of the place. Here we find the Perito Moreno Glacier, known worldwide for its features. Its accessibility gives the opportunity to explore continental ice and vibrate with the thunderous cracking of the ice walls.
Inside the park you can also find the Upsala Glacier. The height of its forehead is approximately 60 metres above the Lake. Its area is about 900 km2 and its length of 60 km, making it the longest of the Continental Ice and South America. One of the most beautiful spectacles of the Upsala Glacier is the drifting icebergs that sail along the North Arm.
