Rent a car and discover Patagonia

El Calafate is popular destination with tourists due to its incredible location. Situated on the southern shores of Lake Argentino and on the edge of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, it is known as the gateway to the spectacular Los Glaciares National Park and the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. It is one of Santa Cruz province's most visited places and takes its name from the calafate, an indigenous shrub with yellow flowers and dark berries. Car rental is a smart option since local bus services are intermittent. With a vehicle at your disposal it's easy to organize trips and outings. Enjoy a weekend getaway in El Chalten, home to the magnificent Fitz Roy mountain, take a drive to the Torres de Paine National Park in nearby Chile, and see the stunning Perito Moreno at your own pace. The Sixt rent a car El Calafate Airport team is looking forward to helping you continue your journey!

Very kind and helpful staff. Just a friendly advice book car with stronger engine for road trip in Patagonia. We had renult (1.4 liter engine), was alright but bigger car would have done better.
