Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, El Calafate

(4.8/5 based on 7,000+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy breathtaking views of some of the world's most spectacular ice fields at Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. 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. Don't miss the awe-inspiring Perito Moreno Glacier, where you're likely to hear thunderous crashes as chunks of the glacier break off and fall into the water. Put Parque Nacional Los Glaciares at the forefront of your travel plans using our El Calafate trip builder.

  • Beautiful experience visit the PERITO MORENO glacier. It is an enjoyment for all ages. It is a magical place. I recommend making the mini-trekking up the glacier (remember that it is 65!)

  • It is definitely of the places that you can not miss. I saw him on TV million times, in photos much, but live... He doesn't surprise you. A unique wonder. Has a lot of runways, several of them suitable for people with mobility reduced. For go preferably when the climate not will be so hostile (I had cold, rain and wind), but is returned quite unpredictable. To fill the view of images!

  • Hermoso!
  • Breathtaking scenery.
  • Amazing park. The minitreking is the best thing to do.
