A breathtaking landscape of impressive glaciers descending from continental ice fields. Thirteen glaciers on the Atlantic side break into huge ice towers which plunge into the waters of lakes Viedma and Argentino. For sure of one of the greatest experiences in a country which is itself an attraction.
Los Glaciares National Park is a protected area in the southernmost part of the Argentine Patagonia. With Chile directly on its west side, the park covers an area of 115,000 hectares, with a representative mix of the Patagonian Steppe and the humid Subantarctic forest. Only the east side of the park is accessible with vehicles, the remainder is closed to the public in an effort to guarantee the highest level of protection.
This moderate 2-hour circuit introduces you to fascinating glacial landscapes bursting with streams, small lagoons, gullies, crevasses, and plenty of ice formations of the most incredible blue hues. The ice surface that you walk over is irregular, but firm and safe. You will receive explanations about flora, fauna and the general glaciology of the region, as well as details about the particular phenomenon that happens in the Perito Moreno Glacier and eventually produces its ruptures.
The ultimate adventure tour; a unique, full-day trekking experience on the most famous Patagonian glacier - Perito Moreno - near El Calafate. Be completely taken aback by spectacular views of the incredible ice formations in Argentina’s Los Glaciares National Park.
Monte Fitz Roy, (Mount Fitz Roy), the highest mountain in Los Glaciares National Park, rises 3,405m above the bare, sculpted range with a peak swirled in snow that only serious climbers will even consider scaling. Its neighbour, Cerro Torre (Mount Torre), is no easier to crest at a height of 3,128m, but these magnificent spires crown the parkland with their most recognizable formations. Feel exhilarated when trekking to the base of the mountains and appreciate the unique and stunning landscapes.
