All about the EL CALAFATE – EOLO LODGE SPIRIT – LUXURY.

EOLO embodies the spirit of Patagonia. Built on the land where the first creole and European immigrants of the area initially set foot, one can’t help but sense the aura of adventure that the thousands of travelers who journeyed through this area have left behind. Visitors not only leave their mark but also depart with a sense of having been deeply transformed by the experience.

The hotel is conveniently located halfway between the city of El Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park, yet far from the commotion of the tourist activity in the area. The 10,000 acres property is a paradise for horseback riding, mountain bike rides, trekking, bird watching and, of course, to fully enjoy the subtle elegance of the installations.

The lot where the lodge stands extends to 10.000 acres, 30 minutes away from El Calafate, on the way to the Perito Moreno glacier. It is a unique property that expands from a lagoon to forests on the Cerro Frias’s slopes. Being that these activities take place in a unique setting and are exclusive to our guests, we recommend adapting your itinerary to take some of these tours. All these activities take place at Eolo without any additional transfer.

To help visitors make the choice that is right for them, we divide the itineraries per area. Our recommendation is for visitors to choose one activity per area, per day. Keep in mind that the activities that take place outside our property do have an additional cost.

  2. Day 2 EL CALAFATE: PERITO MORENO GLACIER

    This park has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The famous Perito Moreno Glacier is located in the extreme southwest of Lago Argentino 80 kilometers from El Calafate. It has become one of the greater natural spectacles of South America. From time to time walls of ice fall from the 60 meter tall face into the waters of Brazo Rico or to the Canal de los Témpanos, navigating the channel to the principal body of the lake. This cycle will take 4 to 6 years ending with the lake divided in two. The Brazo Rico remains retained and elevates approximately 35 meters above its current level. The water slowly makes a tunnel in the glacier until the pressure makes it collapse. This spectacle is indescribable. The waters precipitate in gigantic waves only to start the process all over again.
    During this tour you can make a trekking tour over the Glacier.
    State of paths: completely gravel. Regular tour departs at 9:00am, returns at 5:00pm.
