  • Onelli glacier is part of los Glaciares National Park in Santa cruz province in Argentina. He he on Lake Argentino through the bahia Onelli. This glacier is in retraction, as most glaciers, different from the Perito Moreno glacier. Because of this retraction he is disconnected, preventing passage. Can only be seen from a distance when we cruise boats tours on the rivers of ice, traditional walk of El Calafate.

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.
