Calafate Useful Information


CLIMATE

In El Calafate itself the climate is dry, with only 300 mm. of average yearly rainfall.
However, in the National Park, situated further to the east it rains much more, above +1500 mm per year. Maximum average temperature during the southern hemisphere summer is +18C, and the average minimum in winter is -2 degrees centigrade. There are no shops in El Calafate that where you can rent clothes for snow or extreme cold. It is also important to take into account the variations of the hours of daylight according to the season: In summer, dawn comes at 5:30 AM and the sun does not set until 11 PM; but during the southern hemisphere winter you can only count on 8 daylight hours, i.e. between 9:30 AM and 5:30 PM.

WHAT TO PACK
An extra coat is always welcome during a trip to El Calafate, since the weather can change from a sunny sky to a cold wind. Look for a coat you can easily take off and hang when you enter a shop or building for longer than a minute. For the excursions into the country side you will need a sweaters and waterproof shoes. Due too the frequent changes of climate, it is a good idea to use different layers of clothing and a small rucksack to carry the pieces of clothing not in use at any given moment. Sunglasses are a must, especially when coming into contact with snow.

HEALTH
There are no endemic diseases in Argentina and thus you will not need any special vaccination before visiting.
Argentina is free of hoof and mouth disease, thus the there is no danger of enjoying a good steak.
Sometimes a red tide will restrict the possibility to enjoy seafood on the shell. Local media will always inform the public whenever this happens.

Argentina has an important network of hospitals, clinics and medical posts. In the big cities the hospitals are fully equipped to deal with most cases, however complicated, whilst in the most remote villages medical attention is on a basic level.

WATER
All the Argentinean cities that you will visit have potable water treatment plants. However, to avoid any unpleasantries we recommend you stick to bottled water during your trip, especially when in places off the beaten track.

TYPICAL LOCAL CUISINE
Apart from the tasty steaks on the spit, the local cuisine has managed to blend the most representative of European cuisine with the best of Regional dishes. Typical regional dishes are the Patagonian lamb, trout or salmon and local sweets, such as i.e. the "Calafate", with which jams and cakes are made.

Restaurants during your trip:
In Calafate: International, vegetarian and local food restaurants.

IMPORTANT: We reserve the right to make changes to the order of the trip, without prior notice, due to changes in climate conditions, river water levels, flight or bus arrival and departure times or any other reason relevant to the best development of the trip.
