"A breathtaking view of the magical glacier"
0

This natural wonder is not to be missed. The massive icebergs floating around, the stunning views of the glacier, everything is so spectacular here. Once in a lifetime activity is a must add to your bucket list. Ensure you have the most comfortable shoes on as the trekking could take up to 2 hours but the stunning view is totally worth the hard work.

Los Glaciares National Park

Los Glaciares National Park is a federal protected area in Santa Cruz Province, Argentina. The park covers an area of 726,927 ha , making it the largest national park in the country. Established on 11 May 1937, it hosts a representative sample of Magellanic subpolar forest and west Patagonian steppe biodiversity in good state of conservation. In 1981 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The park's name refers to the giant ice cap in the Andes, the largest outside of Antarctica and Greenland, feeding 47 large glaciers, of which 13 flow towards the Atlantic Ocean. In other parts of the world, glaciers start at a height of at least 2,500 m above mean sea level, but due to the size of the ice cap, these glaciers begin at only 1,500 m , sliding down to 200 m . Los Glaciares borders Torres del Paine National Park to the south in Chilean territory.
