Immediately after the GNetwork360 10th Annual LGBT Tourism & Business Conference in Buenos Aires, a group of LGBT media and conference participants headed down to the southern tip of Argentina, to the town of El Calafate. Staying at the lodge-like Alto Calafate Hotel, we took the shuttle into town for some local exploring and dining by night, and ventured into Los Glaciares National Park by day, once by boat on Lago Argentino (dinner cruise by MarpaTag Cruises) and another day by bus, where we were able to roam alongside the glacier as it calved icebergs large and small during our visit.
