International Airport Comandante Armando Tola
El Calafate is one of the main touristic destinations of Argentina. The local airlines offer around 7 flights a day from 5am to 22hs. We highly recommend to visit the town or the surrounding on your arrival day and go to the estancia on the next morning.

Guests will be picked up from their hotel in the morning and transferred to the ferry port of El Calafate appr. 1 hours frive from El Calafate city center.
