This is an arid, dry rugged, low populated land with weather that can change in five minutes, rain, snow showers, sun, winds up to 60 mph.

Calafate is named for the calafate berry, that once eaten guarantees one’s return to Patagonia. Eating the berry set us at ease. Now we knew that if we missed something, someday we would return and see all there was to see again. We visited the Perito Moreno Glacier in the Los Glaciares National Park . It was our first introduction to Patagonia glaciers. We were told that this glacier is still expanding. How nice to hear, when so many are shrinking. There are a set of walkways across from the base of the glacier that we traversed as we enjoyed viewing the glacier.

They promised hikes, glaciers and animals as we sailed to the “uttermost end of the earth”. That meant navigating the legendary Strait of Magellan, Cape Horn and the remote islands of Tierra del Fuego. The scenery was breathtaking.

Our cruise ended in the most southern town in the world, Ushuaia. We spend the afternoon there and then boarded a plane for our flight back to Buenos Aires.
