Travelling to EL CALAFATE: Trout with Blue Cheese & First Impressions of Town (Patagonia, Argentina)

We’re finally travelling to El Calafate, the land of glaciers, icebergs and snow in Patagonia, Argentina! In this travel vlog, we’ll show you the journey there. It was a 4-hour bus trip from Río Gallegos to El Calafate and we were treated to some beautiful scenery along the way, ranging from Patagonian steppe to snow-capped mountains in the horizon.

Once we arrived in town, we went in search of food and had a trout dish with blue cheese, potatoes and pasta. We ate at a restaurant called ‘Isabel’ that specializes in dishes cooked on a ‘plough disc’, which is a traditional way of cooking that has its roots in the farming and agricultural communities.

Then it was time to book some tours from El Calafate. We really wanted to visit estancias and see the glaciers up close, so we booked a few different excursions, which you’ll be seeing in the next episodes!

Lastly, we’ll sit down to share our first impression of El Calafate, and we’ll also give you a tour of the A-frame cottage we rented in town.
