Glacial Grandeur: Perito Moreno

Undoubtedly, the crown jewel of sightseeing in El Calafate is the Perito Moreno Glacier. This towering, icy behemoth is not only a jaw-dropping spectacle but also one of the few advancing glaciers in the world. During a sightseeing tour with Happytripz, you'll witness the massive ice formation, hear it creaking, and with a bit of luck, see large chunks break off and thunderously crash into the water—a phenomenon known as calving. As you stand on the viewing platforms, prepare to feel minuscule against the sheer scale of this natural wonder, which is part of the Los Glaciares National Park.

Patagonian Panoramas: La Leona

En route to some of the key attractions, the Happytripz sightseeing tour will likely take you along the banks of the La Leona River. This azure ribbon cuts through the arid Patagonian steppe, linking Lake Argentino and Lake Viedma. Its name, meaning "The Lioness," comes from an early 20th-century encounter with an enormous puma. From the comfort of the tour vehicle, you'll gaze out at the dramatic landscape dotted with fascinating rock formations and golden swathes of pampas grass that whisper stories of eons past.

Avian Adventures: Lago Argentino

As part of the itinerary, the Happytripz team frequently stops by Lago Argentino, the country's largest freshwater lake. This shimmering body of water changes hues with the passing clouds and serves as a vital habitat for a rich variety of birdlife. With binoculars in hand, you might spot flamingos, Black-necked swans, and the majestic Andean condor soaring high above the Patagonian steppe.

Cultural Encounters: Museums and Estancias

A Happytripz sightseeing tour is not complete without delving into the human side of El Calafate. You'll get a chance to visit local museums, where artifacts and interactive exhibits tell the tale of the region's geological history and human settlement. For a true Patagonian experience, nothing beats a visit to an Estancia—a typical Argentinean ranch. Here you can savor authentic Patagonian lamb barbecue, learn about rural life, and sometimes, witness skilled horsemen known as gauchos showcasing their horsemanship.
