the Feldman`s.

Originally from BA, we settled in El Calafate in 1987  to create the first hostel in Patagonia.

This hostel received several awards and we spoke as part of the international chain.

Our guests from all over the world always found the warmth and professionalism of our services and that's how they themselves asked us to avoid common tus and that we organize excursions for them. They loved our style!

To frame ourselves legally, we created Patagonia Backpackers, a travel and tourism company recognized by the National Parks Administration, which you can access by clicking click here.

Simultaneously, Danny Feldman became a naturalist guide in English for Los Glaciares National Park and designed an alternative way to get to know the Moreno Glacier that still exists today: the Moreno Glacier Alternative Tour.

For the year 2000, we created the Hotel del Glaciar. Preferably located on the main street, in the heart of the city, in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods of El Calafate. 

We have found in this undertaking the ideal balance of quality, professionalism and warmth that has made us so well known.


In recent years we have also incorporated our own fleet of buses with our own maintenance workshop with qualifications that allow us to travel through Patagonia, Argentina and Chile. It is an  important complement for the groups that come to ourHostel Los Pioneros y alGlacier Hotel and thus also provide customized transportation services for groups. 

Today, many companies around the world choose us for our quality and solid transportation services for groups staying in other hotels.

We are about to reach 35 years of experience. Mario and Clarita, Danny's parents, are no longer in the race, but Danny and his wife Filo, every day we are taking care of every detail so that things turn out as you expect.


We can say that we are more than your solid travel tool, we are your local friend in the area ready to help you have a trip with unforgettable experiences!
