  • The Lake is really great, if you can remove to see the Perito moreno glacier or take a ride in the car from El calafate in El chalten, there are unique views. The thing that surprised me the most is the color, has a heavenly intense ever seen before!

  • Lago Argentino is one of the major attractions. Extensive, splendid, peaceful, and incredible. It is one of the beauties of southern Argentina.

  • We toured the Argentine Lakes... a beauty color. The Caribbean in Argentina. Its color varies from green to light blue cake and at times shows crystal. The mountains in the background give resulting incredible scenery.
