The Hotel Sierra Nevada is integrated to the beauty and immensity of Los Glaciares National Park , in a privileged place in El Calafate , national capital of the glaciers and starting point to enjoy and explore its natural environment. Because of its imposing natural beauty, Los Glaciares National Park constitutes a unique wonder in the world and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1981. It includes a scenario of mountains, lakes and forests, including a vast portion of the Andes, practically covered with ice and snow. Its glaciers originate extraordinarily at 1500 m of altitude and descend to only 200 msnm, allowing a unique access and visualization in the world. El Calafate, the closest town to the Perito Moreno Glacier (the most famous for its spectacular landslides), is the epicenter of all activities and services. And, in it, the Hotel Sierra Nevada, open to the landscape, ensures a stay full of comfort and beauty.
