The expansive national park, which shares a border with Chile, contains 47 glaciers, with 30 percent of its total area covered by ice. Thanks to well-developed trails and viewing platforms, you can see some of these glaciers up close, as the raw mechanics of nature drive the ice ever so slowly towards its destination.

  • Charming, Majestic, imposing and impressive. His vision leaves breathless for such beauty. Positivissima experience, there are no words that would make justice to this wonder of nature. To see absolutely. You can also take advantage of the boat to get even closer to the glacier and listen closely to his voice when with thunderstorms pieces of ice crumble and fall into the lake. It releases charm. The catwalks on the mainland are in excellent condition and allow you to take pictures from every angle. On the glacier you can hike. It is considered the eighth wonder of the world and can be reached in various ways: by car following the provincial road N ° 15 or with organized tour or using the bus that starts from the main street of El Calafate
