Long-tailed Meadow Lark
Just west of El Calafate is the shallow Bahía Redonda, itself part of the vast Lago Argentino. On the edge of Bahía Redonda is the Laguna Nimez a bird reserve with an entrance fee of less than $1. Once you have gained entry you are free to wander around at will and observe the birds; birdwatchers will know that it is not a thing to be done in a hurry ... if you are patient you will be rewarded, so it is with the Laguna Nimez. The Chilean Flamingoes are obvious by their size and colour ... but look around and see how many other species you can see.
Address: Calle Bustillo .. then follow the signs!
mini-trekking on the Perito Moreno glacier
Unique among the glaciers of Parque Los Glaciares (and indeed almost the whole world) in that the Perito Moreno glacier is not retreating, this 5km wide, 60m high massive wall of ice bisects two of the arms of Lago Argentino, those of the Brazo Rico and Canal de los Témpanos. The most popular and exhilarating activity is that of 'mini-trekking', essentially this is strapping on crampons and walking around atop the glacier for an hour or two. If you are not bold enough to do this you could opt to watch the glacier calving (where large chunks of ice break free from the glacier and crash into the lake) from the Peninsula Magallanes
Address: 85km West of El Calafate
