Entre la Estepa y el Hielo

El Calafate is a small and charming town lost in the immensity of the Patagonian steppe; it is the main doorway to the wonderful Glaciers Park.

El Calafate es un pueblo pequeño y encantador, perdido en la inmensidad de la estepa patagónica; es la puerta de ingreso al maravilloso Parque de Los Glaciares.
