Le damos la bienvenida a nuestra Hostería de Campo

Only 20 kilometers away from El Calafate, on the same way to the Perito Moreno Glacier, is an old sheep farm named “El Galpón del Glaciar”. The establishment is surrounded by 3,5 kilometers of shore of the Lago Argentino and by 1,5 kilometers of riverbank of the Centinela River: both offer an ideal environment to enjoy activities in contact with nature. Welcome. We will be waiting for you to know and to enjoy Patagonia.
