Location & Directions
El Calafate, Patagonia
Casa Los Sauces is located in the town of El Calafate, 80km (1 hour) from the Perito Moreno glacier, the area’s most important tourist attraction.
When to go
November to April brings the best weather, downpours are rare, and there’s usually enough sun to get fabulous photographs of the ice, with bright sunshine most days. In March and April, Fall colors are spectacular, as the lenga on upper slopes of the mountains turns scarlet. The majority of the region is closed for winter June to August, when weather makes the area very inhospitable. December and January are high season and the glacier trips are at their busiest. September, October and March is a great time to visit, when there are fewer crowds, and the weather can still be beautifully mild. Bear in mind, though, that weather in Southern Patagonia is unpredictable.
