“Los Glaciares” National Park
There are about 80 km from El Calafate to the Perito Moreno Glacier
along a mostly paved road. On your right you will see the “Lago
Argentino” with its rounded bay, where you can find different species
like black neck swans, flamingoes, coots and the typical species “pato
vapor” and “cauquén”. Due to the “coirón”, grass that grows on the
area, the fields show a yellowish colour, though you can also find
white and short “coirón”.
Over the first 40 km, you travel along the Patagonian steppe
until you get to the entrance of the National Park with
its “ñires”, “guindos”, “canelos”, “lengas” and coloured flowers.
The “notro”, typical shrub of the Patagonian forest, with its particular
intense red flowers, will capture your sight.
Once in the Glacier you will stare at its captivating natural scenery
and will be able to have a front view of it by going up the steps and
walking the walkways.
