    It is located in Av. Libertador and is a stroll, with different business of crafts, from clothes, chocolates, of adjust you and memories. It is almost like a small Mall but which is set in a village of gnomes (very famous in the area). Really very picturesque, but expensive for people who want to buy gifts.

Where to stay in El Calafate

El Calafate offers abundant lodgings, from budget-friendly guesthouses to four-star hotels. Top beds sell out well before the peak season (October to April, and especially December to February), so it's a good idea to reserve in advance if you plan to visit during that time. Spontaneous travelers without prior arrangements can look for youth hostels, many of which are located just outside of town. To stay in comfort without burning a hole in your wallet, consider vacationing here during the low season, when most hotels offer deep discounts.
