The basics

The area receives about five times as much annual precipitation as El Calafate, creating a lush climate of green meadows that stands out from the rest of Patagonia. Due to its rural location, the lake is best visited as part of a day trip; tours that cover the lake typically also cover La Macarena waterfall station and the Tree Cemetery, either in a sightseeing vehicle or on the Fin del Mundo (End of the World) train.
